Golden State Warriors at Utah Jazz
The Warriors lead the Jazz 3-0 and look to join the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA’s Final Four. Golden State opened as an 8-point favorite on NBA odds at Sportsbook Review’s top-rated betting sites to finish the sweep of Utah on Monday. The Jazz had a shot to make this a series in Game 3 as they led 79-78 with 6:20 left, but then the Warriors closed out the game on a 24-12 run to win 102-91. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were just 7-for-29 combined shooting and 3-for-17 from 3-point range, and the Warriors still won by double digits. Kevin Durant stepped up in a big way with 38 points, including 11 of Golden State’s 24 in that final push. He also had 13 rebounds. Rudy Gobert has done his part in this series for Utah in averaging 16.7 points, 13.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 blocks but isn’t getting much help. Some teams will just mail it in when trailing 3-0 in a series, but the Jazz are a young group that might benefit down the road from winning a playoff game against the NBA championship favorites. 


San Francisco Giants at New York Mets
The Giants return to Citi Field for the first time since winning the 2016 NL wild-card game there, 3-0 on Oct. 5 behind ace Madison Bumgarner. Both clubs were expected to contend for playoff berths again but have disappointed. Bumgarner is out perhaps two months after suffering a shoulder injury while riding a dirt bike. At 11-21, San Francisco has the worst winning percentage (.344) in baseball and enters on a three-game losing streak – and already nine games out in the NL West. The Giants start lefty Matt Moore, who is 1-4 with an ugly 6.75 ERA. The Mets (14-16) are truly a mess with their best player, outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, and ace, Noah Syndergaard, both out injured. Syndergaard could miss three months. On Sunday, Matt Harvey was suspended by the team for a violation of team rules, and he might file a grievance over it. His replacement Sunday, Adam Wilk, was pummeled in a loss to the Marlins. Former NL Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom is on the mound here. He is 2-1 with a 3.68 ERA, only having faced NL East opponents in his six starts. DeGrom is walking batters at a career-high level.
