Stephen Curry: “I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but No. 22 should be in Cleveland this year with the way he’s hooping.”

Steph Curry on whether he daydreams about what this team can be when Klay returns: “All the time. … There’s a lot of options with what we can do. … Once (Klay) gets back to who he is, it’s going to be fun.” – 12:23 AM

Curry said he counted 17 shot attempts from Klay in a 12-minute scrimmage the other night, and Klay made more than 50% of them. – 12:22 AM

Warriors on Christmas: beat the Suns in Phoenix
On New Year’s Day: beat the Jazz in Utah – without Draymond Green. 123-116
– Curry 28p, Wiggins 25, Porter 20 – 11:33 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
FINAL: Warriors 123, Jazz 116. Golden State absolutely tears it up on both ends down the stretch — 13-18 FGs in 4Q compared to 10-24 for Utah. Six-game winning streak over. 20p apiece for Bogey, Don and Mike, the latter two on a combined 8-32 FGs. 20/19 for Rudy. 28/9 for Steph. – 11:32 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Warriors win 123-116.
Steph: 28 points, 9 ast, 6 rebs. Warriors overall shot 17-32 from 3.
Bogdanovic, Mitchell, and Gobert all had 20 points. Gobert also had 19 rebs and was a +10. Mitchell had 9 assists.
Really good, interesting, revealing game. @NO next on Monday. – 11:32 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz fall to the Warriors 123-116….Utah falls to 26-10 on the season. The Jazz fall to 14-7 at home. A six game streak is snapped. Great game. A long road trip awaits. On to New Orleans and the Pelicans on Monday night – 11:32 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
FINAL: Warriors escape with a 123-116 win over the Jazz. Quite the turnaround from Golden State, which was on the brink of a total meltdown after that rough third quarter. – 11:31 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
No Dray, no Klay, no problem. – 11:31 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors won in Phoenix against a fully stocked Suns team on Christmas without Wiggins/Poole. They beat a fully stocked Jazz team tonight in Utah without Draymond Green. Record: 28-7. Klay Thompson’s return is “very close.” – 11:31 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
I believe this delay of game on Donovan Mitchell is because in trying to deny Curry he ran out of bounds and got into Iguodala’s passing lane. – 11:30 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Curry’s shooting percentage is going to belie how well he played tonight. He broke every Jazz run with a big shot. He obviously made the back breaker. He was ridiculously good tonight – 11:27 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Iguodala was 9-for-44 from 3 (20.4 percent) before making two big 3-pointers in the fourth-quarter in Utah – 11:26 PM

That’s a great win for Golden State but I don’t feel like it’s a bad loss for Utah. Third game in four nights, fought back from the deficit. I’m not coming away from this thinking “wow Utah can’t hang with Golden State.” – 11:25 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Even though Andre Iguodala has struggled to shoot the ball this year, he’s looked so much better being back with Golden State than he did in Miami. – 11:24 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Iggy for three and the Jazz trail the warriors 119-112…and that will do it….the warriors were simply incredible in the last five minutes and that proved the difference in the game….they knew what they wanted on every possession and they got it – 11:24 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Andre Iguodala’s been great in some big road wins this season. At Lakers on opening night, in Boston a couple weeks ago, in Utah tonight: 12-7-8 and a +12 in 23 minutes, just hit the wing 3 over a sagging Gobert to ice it. – 11:24 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Rudy makes the business decision not to fully close out on Iggy at the 3P line, and Iggy buries it to make him pay. 119-112 Warriors, 38.8 to go. Barring some Reggie Miller stuff, that should probably do it. – 11:24 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Iguodala makes 3 on the next possession — he’s shooting 21% from deep this year. Warriors up 7 with 38 seconds left. – 11:23 PM

Funny thing about the Jazz: They have 2 guys who finished top 3 in 6th man voting last season, but they almost always close games w/ their starters.

Can Jazz continue to limit Steph (5-14 FG)? – 11:09 PM

Curry at 28 minutes. Imagine Kerr would love to bring him back at the 8-minute mark. But if he brought him back now with 9:48 left, he’d finish at 38 minutes. That’s a reasonable number given the extra day of rest after the Nuggets game was postponed – 11:01 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
This is Golden State’s best defensive lineup against the Jazz by far. Four switchable defensive wings that are 6-6 to 6-9 and super athletic. No coincidence that the Jazz have had issues the last two minutes running offense. Nowhere to gain an advantage – 11:01 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
The Jazz use of the Eurofoul is unquestionably the right move, but there are times when guys seem to rely on it too much and don’t play transition D when they can’t/don’t take it. – 11:00 PM

Joe does not do the multiple-pat Eurofoul, refs miss the contact, GSW ends the possession with a putback slam. Timeout Quin. 94-88 Jazz with 9:48to go. – 11:00 PM

Jazz up 91-86 after the 3Q. What a quarter from Utah, outscoring the Warriors 41-22.
Quin eschewing the middle minutes and just having Gobert play every Steph minute was huuuuge. Gobert was dominant in that quarter, even without a huge impact on the box score. – 10:54 PM

28-10 third quarter so far for Utah. Finally making 3s. Steve Kerr got a technical (and near ejection) after a no call on an Otto Porter hook. Kevon Looney upset after an illegal screen call. GP2 had to be pulled back from refs by Iguodala after timeout. Warriors frustrated. – 10:39 PM

That’s a 15-3 run for the Jazz, who are capitalizing on Mike Conley’s success getting by the point-of-attack defense, and the ensuing ball movement. Meanwhile, Warriors have gone a bit cold. 69-65 Warriors, 8:35 left 3Q. – 10:29 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Hell of a run by the Jazz to get back into this one. Got some stops defensively. Making shots now. But most importantly, for the first time tonight they look comfortable running their offense through. Warriors up 69-65…. – 10:28 PM

Much much much much better from Utah…. it’s a 15-3 run. Conley probing and dishing great, and then defensively they’re so much more connected than they were early. Jazz within 4 now. – 10:28 PM

HALFTIME: Warriors up 64-50 on the Jazz. Really nice first half from Golden State, which is shooting 53.1% from the field (10-for-21 from 3-point range) with 22 assists to just seven turnovers. And keep in mind, Draymond Green isn’t playing. – 10:08 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Halftime: Warriors 64, Jazz 50. GSW closes 2Q on a 13-4 run to blow the game open. Utah’s defense has been pretty lackluster all the way around. Entirely too many open looks for the Warriors, who are converting 53.1% overall and 10-21 from 3. Jazz at 36.4% and 4-21. – 10:08 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Otto Porter with a first half 16-5-5 stat line, plus two steals, starting in place of Draymond Green. Seventeen points for Andrew Wiggins. Warriors up 64-50 in Utah, holding the Jazz’s #1 ranked offense to 37% shooting without Draymond. – 10:07 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Warriors lead Jazz 64-50 at the half. 119 ORtg for GSW, 94 ORtg for Utah.
Wiggins has 17, Porter 16, Steph only 11, but the Jazz are just giving up wide open look after look. Meanwhile, on offense, Warriors have a 22-5 advantage in assists. – 10:07 PM

A) The Jazz aren’t playing well.

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz are just a step slow tonight — both physically and in their decision-making. Everything’s bogged down, and the Warriors’ excellent switching defense is only compounding the problem. Golden State leads 40-31 w/7:34 left 2Q. – 9:49 PM

END OF Q1: Warriors up 29-24 on the Jazz. Otto Porter Jr., Golden State’s starting PF with Draymond Green out, has been sensational. At his best, he’s an elite role player. Does so many things well. – 9:38 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 1Q: Warriors 29, Jazz 24. Utah’s pretty lucky to be this close, all things considered. Lots of shots coming up short (7-21 overall, 2-11 from 3), lots of turnovers (5), not great success with small-ball defense in general and zone specifically. 11p/5a for Otto. 8p for Don. – 9:38 PM

Jazz down 29-24 after 1Q. So, Jazz are shooting an uncharacteristic 18% from three. But the defense has been highly disappointing, in both small and big lineups. – 9:37 PM

Micah Bernard at one CB spot with the first-team D, so that appears to be a go. – 4:36 PM

First good pop from the crowd here as the Utah specialists remerge from the locker room in uniform.

Last night Royce O’Neale played 32 minutes and didn’t take a shot. It is the 75th time in NBA history someone has played 30 minutes and not taken a FGA. It is the 44th time someone has played 30 minutes and not scored. Some fun notes about this as well (1/?) – 3:42 PM
