Jazz Cannot Dance with Spurs

The Utah Jazz simply have no answer for the San Antonio Spurs. Last season the Spurs were ousted in the first round, losing the the number 8 seeded Memphis Grizzles. Rarely in sports history does a number 8 seed beat a number 1. That Spurs team is in much much better health plus they have added a number of key pieces to complement their “big 3.”

PG Tony Parker has had an outstanding season, leading the Spurs to the league’s best record in this short season and coach Greg Popovich earned coach of the year honors. In this round 1 matchup, the Jazz just have no answer for all of the Spurs’ offensive weapons. Tim Duncan is still one of the league’s best forwards/centers in the game and Parker in easily in the top five of best active PGs.

Much like game 1, game 2 was not very close as the Spurs would go on to win 114-83. Parker led all scorers with 18 points as the Spurs had 7 players reach double figures in scoring. The only positive for the Jazz is that the series will now shift to Utah for games 3 & 4. Maybe the change of scenery will give the Jazz a much needed boost of energy and will enhance their play.

San Antonio leads the series 2-0.
