On Monday, May 3rd, the San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz will compete for the second time this season. Utah won the first meeting, January 3rd (130-109).
The clubs will play consecutive games with a game in between (May 5th).
The Spurs hold the all-time record between the clubs with 108 wins in 193 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with San Antonio winning three of the four contests.
San Antonio Spurs
Week 19 was not kind to the San Antonio Spurs. They began well with an overtime victory versus the Wizards. But, then they lost three in a row and all games they could’ve won.
Three of their four matches last week were pushed into overtime. In the loss to the Celtics they led by 32 points behind Jayson Tatum’s career-best 60 point evening.
Versus Philly, Ben Simmons tipped in Joel Embiid’s shot that was about to rim out as the overtime buzzer sounded.
That the Spurs were in the match at all was impressive given they were missing four starters. DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl were rested while Dejounte Murray (knee) and Derrick White (ankle) were out due to injury.
Lonnie Walker led the scoring with 23 points. Keldon Johnson scored 19 points. He keeps impressing and while I can’t say his defense is on par with Kawhi Leonard I can see how he could be the primary player the Spurs build around.
Again a tough week for the Spurs who sit in ninth but could just as easily be on a six-game winning streak.
A bit of luck kept Utah from being 1-3 last week instead of 2-2. The Raptors were missing four core contributors and still almost beat them.
Granted, Donovan Mitchell (ankle) and Mike Conley (hamstring) were missing their eighth and third games.
After losing to the Suns it feels like the Jazz might be putting a precedent on getting everyone healthy and perhaps eyeing the middle tier to avoid a second-round matchup versus either LA club. The danger with this thinking is the loss of rhythm and chemistry that could occur.
In the win versus the Raptors, the Jazz eeked out a 106-102 victory due to the bench. The Raptors starters all hit double figures but given the absence of core contributors (Kyle Lowry, Gary Trent Jr., Chris Boucher) it meant Toronto had to move reserves into the starting rotation.
Jordan Clarkson (15) outscored the entire Raptors bench (13). Bojan Bogdanovic led the way with 34 points hitting six 3-pointers. Rudy Gobert delivered a 13 point, 16 rebound double-double while Joe Ingles chipped in 15 points. In contrast, the Raptors starters outscored Utah 89-74.
Donovan Mitchell (ankle), Conley (hamstring), and Azubuike, Udoka (ankle) are all expected to be out Monday.
