San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs are not that good of a team at the moment. They are not the team we have become used to seeing over the past two decades.
They have lost two of their last three games. They just have not been consistent enough this year.
When people think of the Spurs, they think of them winning titles. That simply is not the reality of them at the moment.
I cannot say the struggles of this team have surprised me all that much. They just do have the talent to compete with teams in the West, forget the whole NBA.
San Antonio lost to the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday by a score of 131-115. With Lamelo Ball out of that game, they never should have lost by that many to that club.
When you score 115 points, you should feel good about your chances. It is just tough when your opponent scores over 130.
The Jazz have been rolling the whole year. I have been very impressed with what I have seen out of them.
They come into this game with a record of 20-7, which puts them in 3rd place of the Western Conference. They have definitely proven they can hold their own in a loaded West.
This team has been led all year long by their best player, Donovan Mitchell. He is truly a treat to watch even though I do not get to see it all that often.
Utah took care of the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday by a score of 124-103. They did just what they had to do against a team they were better than.
Scoring was certainly not an issue for them in their last game, as five different players reached double figures. Mitchell was the leading scorer with 27 points and 6 dimes. Both Bojan Bogdanovic and Rudy Gobert had 20 points in the game.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Utah Jazz NBA Analysis:
If you are the Jazz, these are teams you must take care of. You cannot play around in a game such as this one.
This is a battle between two teams that are headed in opposite directions. It could get ugly for the away team.
I really have a hard time seeing how San Antonio makes this a competitive ball game.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz ATS
In this one, I feel like the Utah offense will be able to score at will. I really do not trust the Spurs being able to stop them.
Yes, 11.5 is a high number here, but I like it. I do not feel this game will be all that competitive.
