The squad is finally getting their groove after collecting five wins in the last seven games to hold a 12-18 record. Good news is today might be the return of guards Keyonte George and Talen Horton-Tucker to the lineup. Coinciding with that is the fine play of Kris Dunn recently, tallying a total of 23 assists the past two games. Intriguing how Coach Hardy will rotate his guards.
This will also be the first time the Jazz face off with rookie phenom Victor Wembanyama (assuming he’s available). It’s going to be a great challenge how the team will defend his unique skill set, so expect them to mix it up on that end.
For the advanced stats, the Spurs have the worst offensive rating and net rating and the 25th defensive rating, pretty much reflected by their 4-24 mark. Meanwhile, Utah still belongs among the bottom 10 teams in the same categories, but has flashed enough bright spots during the aforementioned stretch.
Hopeful for the Jazz to keep building from this momentum!
