The San Antonio Spurs take on the Utah Jazz in this early season Western Conference showdown.
Utah won the first matchup of the season on Tuesday night by a score of 106-91.
San Antonio Spurs
Khawi Leonard is playing at an All NBA 1st team level in the early portion of the season. He is averaging 28 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals per contest.
He is facing a Utah team without Gordon Hayward defending him, so I expect Leonard to drop 30 on Jazz.
Even though reports from San Antonio express Aldridge as being unhappy in his role, he is playing like the All Star caliber player he was in Portland. He put up 21 points but had only 4 rebounds against the Jazz on Tuesday night.
This game expect him to put up big numbers again as he will have at least 20 points and 10 rebounds.
Paul Gasol was pretty good against Utah in the last game. He finished 4-8 from the floor with 8 points and 8 rebounds. If he gets more touches in the post there is no reason to believe he can’t get over 15 points in the contest.
His excellent passing skills have also helped Leonard dominate on the offensive side of the ball in the early part of the season.
Tony Parker picked up 6 points and 6 assists against the Jazz, and it looks as if he will get a lot of rest during the season to be ready for a long playoff run.
Playing around 20 minutes should be the norm the first few weeks of the season, so don’t expect big time numbers from an aging Parker.
The spurs lost to the Jazz because of 3 point shooting, as Utah was 15-31 from behind the arc. If the Spurs wings can close out and force Utah into the lane, the game will play into the Spurs favor.
George Hill had a great game shooting the ball against one of his former teams. The journeyman guard had 22 points and shot 9-13 from the floor.
He also dished out 7 assists and did not commit a turnover. With an old Tony Parker to defend him, George should have another great game against some of his former teammates.
Rodney Hood scored 19 points and was 4-8 from behind the arc. He also grabbed 5 boards in the game. Look for him to attack the basket more in this game as San Antonio will make an effort to stop the three.
Trey Lyles was a key man for the Jazz off the bench, putting in 15 points, 7 rebounds, and a +23 on the stat sheet. His ability to stretch the floor will be key for the 2nd unit in the middle portions of the game.
Rookie Buddy Hield should see more action in this contest.
The high draft pick can simply light up the score board if given the opportunity, and with San Antonio using a heavy guard system he should have plenty of chances to get on the floor and make some big shots.
