Joe D'Amico's NBA Revenge Game of the Month
Utah vs. New Orleans,
11/02/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 86 - 88
Point Spread: -3½/-105 Utah
Today's winner is Utah over New Orleans. This is my Revenge GoM.
Utah owned the glass, as Milsap, Jefferson, and Favors combined for 39 rebounds in their Game 1, 113-94 victory over Dallas. The Jazz were the NBAs 3rd best team on the boards a season ago. New faces, Mo Williams, Marvin Williams, and Randy Foye fill out the unit quite nicely as the trio posted 55 total points two nights ago. The Hornets, Anthony Davis played well in their opening day loss to the Spurs, However, Austin Rivers scored just 7 points and looked bewildered at times. One player does not a team make. Utah is overflowing with experience and savvy. Two traits that New Orleans does not possess. The Hornets won the L2 vs. the Jazz a season ago and covered all 3 meetings. Utah will come in here highly-motivated and looking for vengeance. Take the Jazz. Thank you.
