This has to have been the worst season for the Utah Jazz EVER, it truly seems as if they are having a nightmare and are NOT ALOUD to wake up!! Almost every game mirrors each other, Utah starts slow, fights to get back in it, only to make a few costly mistakes that they can’t recover from. This time it was against the Spurs, the Spurs kept the NBA’s best record at 61-19 by beating the Jazz at home 111-102. Utah just can’t snap out of the spiraling downfall they have been in since the All-Star Break. You have to give them credit because they come out EVERY game and fight for the W, it just never comes to fruition. The Spurs have began to rest some of their key guys as Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli, and Tim Duncan barely played over 20 minutes in this game. Richard Jefferson stepped up and had his first 20 point game in what seems like forever for the Spurs, Jefferson finished with 23 points and 8 rebounds. Utah was led by Al Jefferson and Paul Milsap. Big Al had 23 points and 8 rebounds, Milsap had 16 points and 3 boards. Rookie Derek Favors has been extremely productive since the trade and contributed 17 points and 5 rebounds off the bench. Wings CJ Miles and Gordon Hayward combined for just 11 points, Hayward had 9 of those points while Miles struggled with his shot. Utah shot 53% from the floor on the night, while that was definitely a positive they allowed the Spurs to shoot even better at 57%. Utah’s next game is on the road in New Orleans, they play Monday night!!
