What to Know

The Spurs have enjoyed a eight-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. They will square off against the Utah Jazz at 9:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Delta Center. The Jazz are favored, but seeing as the odds didn’t stop the Spurs in their last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.

The Spurs have not done well against the Suns recently (they were 2-8 in their previous ten matchups), but they didn’t let the past get in their way on Monday. The Spurs had just enough and edged the Suns out 104-102. The win was just what San Antonio needed coming off of a 131-106 defeat in their prior matchup.

The Spurs relied on the efforts of Jeremy Sochan, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and 18 rebounds, and Devin Vassell, who scored 26 points along with seven assists and three steals. Vassell didn’t help the Spurs’ cause all that much against the Suns on Saturday but the same can’t be said for this match.

Meanwhile, the Jazz’s recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Monday after their sixth straight loss. They took a 115-105 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Mavericks.

The Jazz’s defeat came about despite a quality game from Lauri Markkanen, who went 6 for 9 from beyond the arc en route to 34 points and 2 assists. The team also got some help courtesy of John Collins, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 11 rebounds.

San Antonio’s victory ended a three-game drought at home and bumped them up to 16-56. As for Utah, their loss dropped their record down to 29-43.

The Spurs might still be hurting after the devastating 128-109 defeat they got from the Jazz in their previous matchup back in February. That game was pretty much over by halftime, at which point the Spurs were down 63-39.
