The San Antonio Spurs will travel to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Jazz this Friday night,
The Spurs have played solid basketball this month, winning four of eight games. This will mark the first of a four-game road trip.
The Jazz have won their last eight games, including the last four in dominant fashion.
San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray is the new face of Spurs basketball, and it seems to be in good hands. Murray has flirted with triple-double production in every game this, and he's putting up career-highs across the board. The former UW guard is averaging 17.7 ppg, 8.3 rpg, and 8.4 apg.
Keldon Johnson may be taking a step forward in year three. He's second on the team in scoring, averaging a career-best 14.7 ppg.
Derrick White and Devin Vassell bring more versatility to the backcourt, with the former being second averaging 14.1 ppg and 5.2 apg.
Jakob Poeltl is averaging a career-best 12.3 ppg and 8.8 rpg manning the middle in San Antonio.
Spida's off to another fast start, and the fifth-year guard is on pace to lead the Jazz in scoring again as he's up to 24.8 ppg.
Rudy Gobert's presence is unmatched league-wide. The Stifle Tower commands attention defensive, and doesn't take away from the offense at all. Gobert has been a menace on the boards, and he leads the league with 14.7 rpg.
Reigning Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson has endured a few shooting woes, but the walking microwave is coming off of a 21-point game.
Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic continue to thrive in the Utah system, and represent two of the best role players and snipers in the league.
Utah should keep things rolling at home here. After winning eight straight, their in the midst of one of those special midseason runs. Mitchell and Murray's props should be solid, but we like the Jazz' spread here.
Take Utah's margin tonight.
PICK: Utah Jazz -11.5
