The San Antonio Spurs will attempt to keep their undefeated streak going tonight as they welcome the Utah Jazz into AT&T Stadium for a Western Conference match up. The Spurs are coming off a 103-78 throttling of the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night with stifling defense. The Spurs forced 17 Hawks turnovers and have forced 54 in their last three games.
Of course all of this is nothing to the Head Coach who will never be satisfied with his team’s play, good or bad.
“We had a good night, they had a poor night,” Popovich said after the game. “That’s all it is.”
The Jazz are coming off two straight losses to the Oklahoma City Thunder, 94-90 on Friday and 104-98 yesterday in OKC.
“It hurts,” Utah coach Quin Snyder said. “We were really, really good and we got really tired. It really came down, if we could have gotten a couple of defensive rebounds at the end of the game. We were clearly fatigued in overtime. We’d been able to attack most of the game and just ran out of steam.”
The Jazz will get themselves in trouble if they run out of steam against this Spurs team…ask the Hawks.
