The NBA is back in action today as the San Antonio Spurs will compete against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City.
The Spurs are heading into this game after a 127-118 loss in the game against Portland. On the other side, the Jazz managed a 116-88 win at home over Phoenix
San Antonio Spurs Form
The Spurs have been in a bad form in the last few games. Moreover, they have now lost their last 3 games.
San Antonio is on the 7th spot in the Western Conference with 2.5 games clear of the 9th placed Kings.
However, the Spurs are a good team and they will surely bounce back.
Additionally, they have the in-form DeMar DeRozan as he led them in the defeat with 35 points.
On the offensive side of the game, the Spurs score an average of 112.5 points per game. Therefore, this is 13th best record in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 44.2 boards per nigh combined with 24.8 dimes per contest.
On the defensive side of the game, San Antonio is conceding an average of 111.2 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 16th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Utah Jazz Form
The Jazz managed to win in the game against the Suns. Moreover, Utah is now on the 6th spot in the Western Conference with 2.5 games ahead of Sacramento. They have a good chance to maintain a playoff spot since they are a good upcoming team.
Donovan Mitchell had a good game as he scored 21 points in the win over the Suns.
On the offensive side of the game, the Jazz score an average of 108.9 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 21st spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.1 boards per game combined with 25 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, Utah concedes an average of 105.8 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 4th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Spurs are on a bad run. Also, it seems that their form is dropping near the end of the regular part of the season. On the other side, Utah is playing well lately. They will surely retain a playoff spot as they have a very strong defence. Moreover, they have a large squad and a good team balance. Therefore, I expect another win for the Jazz in this game.
