Jazz Desperately Need a Win Tonight

Patrick Mills Gordon Hayward

Two teams in very different situations collide in Salt Lake City tonight when the Utah Jazz play host to the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs, who are firmly established in the No. 2 Western Conference spot, are simply going through the motions to end the regular season, while the Jazz are battling Dallas and Houston for the West’s final two postseason berths.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS in their last four games with two days off between games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Jazz's last 12 games.
  • The Jazz are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games at home.

Home court advantage has been huge in this series, with home sides going 6-1 ATS in the previous seven matchups between the Spurs and Jazz. If Utah can finish above the Mavs and Rockets and claim seventh place, these squads could be seeing a lot more of each other in the not so distant future.

Utah’s stout defense has been lauded for a multitude of reasons this year, but it’s been non-existent when they play San Antonio. The Spurs have averaged 112.3 points while holding Utah to 85.7 in three games this season – the highest differential the Spurs have had against a West opponent.

The Jazz’s struggles go back much further, however. Utah has lost 16 of its last 20 versus San Antonio since the 2010-11 campaign.
