Spurs vs Jazz: Game Two
The San Antonio Spurs used double digit scoring from 7 players to lift them to a huge Game Two win over the Utah Jazz. Heading into Utah after this game, the Spurs certainly gave themselves the best chance to close out the series in Utah with the big win. No doubt this will certainly be hugely demoralizing for the Jazz. The gap between the number one seed and the eighth is certainly evident on the Western side of the conference.

From a simple stats view, starting ‘center’ Boris Diaw only had 11 points, but was a preposterous +41 in the plus/minus column. Tony Parker also pushed a double double, scoring 18 points and dishing out 9 assists. Rookie Kawhi Leonard had 17 points while Tim Duncan kept up his ageless play with 12 points and 13 rebounds.
In a miserable game for the Jazz, only Al Jefferson and Josh Howard were the only ones to crack double digits, both scoring 10 points apiece. Enes Kanter’s play was the only slight positive for the Jazz, scoring 8 points and pulling down 10 rebounds in around 15 minutes of play.
Coach of the Year Greg Popovich also accepted his award for his work in getting an older Spurs list to where it is today.
