Opponent Game Thread: Jazz vs Spurs

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Let's take a Jazzy ride behind enemy lines, shall we? Don't forget to wear green.

The Jazz made it interesting early, but the Spurs took care of business. 10 in a row for those that are counting and 50 wins on the season. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict they will win more than 50. In regards to the Jazz, well, let's say they don't have as high of hopes as we do. Their Official Game Thread, started with a Poll that read: Who is going to win tonight? Option 1- The Spurs, Option 2 The Spurs Twice. "The Spurs Twice" had the most votes. As for the comments, Coach Tyrone Corbin gets his fair share of criticism and second guessing. In what may be a first, their fans did not mind listening to Sean Elliott. Their home town guy Matt, may be another story.

The Spurs offense is a thing of beauty
Everything goes to the basket. No long 2's

RJ on the other hand has been a waste of space so far
by irideducs

hahaha Matt just said numbers never lie
He has complained about numbers more than anyone all season. Does he even hear himself speak?
by hamfist

so, he's all about the analytics now. smh
I'm listening to Sean Elliott
by Jazzbeetle

SA is good arent' they?
you have to enjoy the way they play, lots of ball movement
by SKMike

wish our vetz were that quick and crafty
by rbmw263

We are still shooting 56% against one of the best D's in the league
I like that we are showing we can hang with teams like the Spurs, Miama, Indiana, etc, even if we lose
by SKMike

Isn't Tiago getting paid 9M per year for that defense?
by Rocinante1

Hahaha, I know this has been said probably a billion times already
But our defense is a joke
by Icemake Davie

We still give up way too many wide opn 3's
by SKMike

they are the furthest away so those are the ones we should give up

Matt has no idea what he is talking about
Duncan for sure could have been an all star. But there were like 4 other guys who didn't make it who deserved it more than Duncan. The west is really just that loaded that Duncan was far from an all star snub
by hamfist

Matty just payin dem vet respects
by rbmw263

The Spurs' commentators are awesome
Giving so much props to our young guys
by Icemake Davie

I'm beginning to understand the depth of why the Spurs are so good
Pop has the refs in fear of his wrath
by Rocinante1

Duncan and Splitter must be good at holding their breath
by Rocinante1

That is cause we don't attack the rim.....oh wait. Favors has like 14 pts and we have only made 1 three pointer
by superdeno

Man their big men can pass inside
by SKMike

It is kind of like they are taught that
some sort of coaching magic
by irideducs

we could easily be down 30 right now
by rbmw263

I want that Mills guy on our team
by SKMike

Spurs announcers amazed RJ only Jazz to start and play in every game
gotta love Ty
by SKMike

Of course they are
The Spurs gave GS a draft pick to get rid of him
by hamfist

OH MY FAVORS
crossover jumper??
by rbmw263

Favors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Icemake Davie

Favors just crossed over Duncan
Drop the mic
by hamfist

In past years, i always thought we just were physically inferior to them
now I think we match up ok, they are just a little better at playing as a team
by SKMike

Spurs actually miss
like wut
by rbmw263

Is Ty in on the tank?
by rubar4

against the Spurs the schedule is in on the tank
by gotag

I hope that our team can eventually pass even half as well as the Spurs
by Rocinante1

The Spurs are robots
by rbmw263

heres a good one
Favors averages about 35 more seconds per game than Tim Duncan
by rbmw263

There's a stat that makes you go hmmm
Ty is obviously resting him to save him for the playoffs - just like Pops and Tim
by irideducs

Baby steps
Favors should be up to 35 minutes by the time he's in his 8th season
by Rocinante1

SA shooting 65%, 31 assists, it is impressive even if against us
by SKMike

even the Spurs garbage time guys are on fire
by rbmw263

Is this what it was like for young teams to play against the Jazz in the mid to late 90's?
