Thursday offers a critical juncture in the determination of the Western Conference play-in seeds. All four teams eligible to finish in the eighth and ninth seeds will play.
By night’s end, the two teams who’ll advance to play Saturday will be established.
San Antonio Spurs
Prior to the tip, San Antonio should know the results of the Grizzlies and Suns matches since both tip-off at 4:00 p.m.
The reason that’s important is the Spurs need the most help out of the four clubs. First, San Antonio has to win their game and they also need two of the other three teams to lose.
There are several different scenarios that could occur. The Grizzlies and Suns could both win, both lose or only one of them win. If they both win then the Spurs will be eliminated from play-in tournament contention.
The Spurs have played well in the bubble compiling a 5-2 record. This is the second time they’ll play the Jazz having beaten them 119-111 on August 7th.
San Antonio’s biggest win came in their last match when they defeated the Houston Rockets.
Rookie Keldon Johnson had a breakthrough performance delivering a double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds.
Demar DeRozan scored 23 points and Jakob Poeltl also posted a 14 point, 12 rebound double-double.
It wasn’t exactly a stellar showing from the Jazz in their seeding games. Utah posted a 2-5 record with wins against the Pelicans and Grizzlies and losses to the Thunder, Lakers, Spurs, Nuggets, and Mavericks.
In their last match, Utah primarily played their reserves with four players posting double-figures led by Jordan Clarkson (18).
As Utah ramps up for their first-round series versus Denver, they are experiencing arguably their worst set of cumulative injuries of the season.
Already without Bojan Bogdanovic due to season-ending wrist surgery Utah can ill afford to lose anyone else.
They’ll hold out Mike Conley (sore knee) and Rudy Gobert (lower back) and possibly Emmanuel Mudiay (knee) versus San Antonio.
Donovan Mitchell (lower-leg peroneal strain), and Jawun Morgan (knee) are both listed as probable.
Their first-round opponent has experienced the same situation throughout the seeding games having just got Jamal Murray back while guards Gary Harris and Will Barton have yet to play.
In the interim Denver has capitalized by getting Michael Porter Jr and Bol Bol as much experience as possible highlighting the depth of the Nuggets and conversely the lack of it in Utah.

Then again if Pops crew is going to miss the playoffs for the first time in 22 seasons it would be naive to expect they would exit with anything other than a Spurs-like effort in honor of that incredible run.
