The Utah Jazz tango with their big brothers the San Antonio Spurs tonight. SLC Dunk preview. Pounding the rock preview. The Spurs have strategic laziness on their side, and the Jazz have five games to focus on in order to make the playoffs.Tibor is back, but Alec is not. It should be a good game if the Jazz are for real. If they are paper tigers this game will expose them as such.
