Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz are a disciplined, hard-playing, and talented group. Unfortunately, they’ve also been bit by the injury bug. Having lost guard Dante Exum to an ACL tear as he prepared for FIBA Oceania before the NBA season began, and finding themselves without three more players (Alec Burks, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert) who had accounted for nearly 40 points per game this season, to stop the Spurs from improving to 21-0 in San Antonio was too much to ask on this night. The Spurs rolled to victory, shooting 60 percent from the field and handing out 34 assists.
