The Jazz are reeling without their big guy in the lineup and this is going to be a really stiff test on the road.
Now that the Warriors have finally lost a game that 20-5 the Spurs have put up looks all the more impressive.
The Jazz have really struggled without the services of Rudy Gobert the last 6 games.
He is not really an offensive force but he is critical to their defense and without him they have gone just 2-4, losing some close games where he could have been the difference.
Without Gobert they have been generally going with a smaller lineup with Derrick Favors in the middle. He has been producing but they are not getting much from rookie Trey Lyles who has slid into his four spot.
There is no timetable yet for the return of Gobert and his absence is really exposing the lack of depth on this club. Favors numbers are up but nobody else has really responded to the challenge.
On the perimeter they have enough talent with the likes of Gordan Hayward, Alec Burks and Rodney Hood but they would have to change the way they have been playing to try and take true advantage.
They might not have a choice if they want to start winning though.
San Antonio Spurs:
Per the above the Spurs are off to a great start. They have just the five losses and three of those were by three points so they could easily be even that much closer to Golden State.
This one looks like a serious mismatch.
That is because without Gobert they have nobody to try and slow down Tim Duncan when he is in the game.
They don’t go to him all the time but you can bet they will milk a significant mismatch and it won’t be just once or twice.
Also, Lamarcus Aldridge may be finally coming along a little. He has had two of his five 20+ point games in the last four.
As he gets more comfortable this team will only get better which is a scary thought for the rest of the league.
So much of success in sports can be about timing. This is a great spot for SA with the Gobert injury and the Jazz losing in OT at OKC last night.
