The Golden State Warriors are hoping to emerge from the long All-Star break as a different team. The Warriors will be attempting to snap a five-game losing streak when they visit the Utah Jazz on Tuesday. Golden State has had its defense disappear during the losing streak and has allowed an average of 118 points in the last five games. The Jazz are one of the teams chasing the Warriors in the West and have won two straight.Utah is one game behind the Warriors, who are currently holding down the No. 6 spot in the Western Conference. The Jazz used some strong defense in their back-to-back wins before the break, including holding the Oklahoma City Thunder down in a 109-94 win last Tuesday. Golden State went on a disastrous four-game road trip before the break and returned home only to fall to the Houston Rockets, one of several teams with the Warriors now in their sights.TV: 9 p.m. ET, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (Golden State), ROOT (Utah)ABOUT THE WARRIORS (30-22): Golden State was one of the best stories of the first half as it ascended to the top half of the West and knocked off several contenders along the way. But the road has not been very kind recently and the Warriors have lost their last six games to teams that would be in the playoffs if the season ended today. The defense has been the main culprit but the offense has also not had a chance to gel with center Andrew Bogut back in the lineup and players like guards Stephen Curry and Jarrett Jack sitting out several games before the break. The constant has been All-Star forward David Lee, though even the NBA's double-double leader found himself in a slump with 22 total points on 7-of-19 shooting in the two games prior to the break. Rookie center Festus Ezeli, who was starting in Bogut's absence, has been pushed to the end of the bench as Bogut gets his legs back under him. The former No. 1 overall pick was not playing the second night of back-to-back games prior to the break but the team is expected to loosen the reins down the stretch.ABOUT THE JAZZ (30-24): Utah has held onto its position among the top eight in the West thanks in large part to its strength on the interior. Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Marvin Williams and DeMarre Carroll form one of the deepest frontcourt rotations in the league. A recent ESPN.com report suggests that the Jazz might be thinking about dealing from that depth, though a trade has yet to be completed. Utah's backcourt has gotten a lift recently from second-year guard Alec Burks, who has taken over the minutes that usually go to Gordon Hayward (shoulder). Burks scored a career-high 24 points in a loss at Sacramento on Feb. 9 and chipped in seven assists and six rebounds in Wednesday's victory at Minnesota.BUZZER BEATERS1. Hayward has missed 10 straight games but has been practicing and is expected to return on Tuesday.2. The Warriors won at Utah 94-83 on Dec. 26. Curry led the way with 23 points while Lee chipped in 18 and nine rebounds.3. Curry, who is shooting 44.7 percent from 3-point range overall, has dipped to 34.5 percent over the last five games.PREDICTION: Warriors 102, Jazz 98.
