Utah Jazz, 4th place in the Western Conference will take on San Antonio Spurs. Check out the preview and TV Schedule for this important game.
The Jazz are now 2-2 in their seeding games in the Bubble. They have defeated the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies and lost to the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Jazz are currently half-a-game ahead of Houston Rockets and will be desperate to cement their 4th spot or even move to 3rd if possible by a series of wins in the next few games.
However, with the Lakers struggling big time in the Bubble, a 4th seed wouldn’t be so bad. And it seems like Jazz want it that way, as most of their first team would sit out tonight’s game vs Spurs.
While there are a few injury concerns for their main players, they have also opted to rest a few.
Jazz Injury Report:
Mike Conley – OUT (right knee soreness)
Rudy Gobert – OUT (rest)
Donovan Mitchell – OUT (left peroneal strain)
Royce O’Neale – OUT (right calf soreness)
Nigel Williams-Goss – OUT (left ankle sprain)
Joe Ingles – AVAILABLE (right foot soreness)

San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs bench has provided plenty of reinforcements this season. They will have to prove their mettle once more. With key Utah players rested, they could probably come away with a win here if they are aggressive. Rudy Gay provided 24 points from the bench against the Nuggets. DeMar DeRozan has also averaged 22 points this season.
With most of the Jazz players sitting out this game, this should be a walk in the park for the highly talented Spurs side However, funnier things have happened in this sport.
Predicted lineup: Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, Lonnie Walker IV, DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl
