The San Antonio Spurs (60-19) look to extend their winning streak to four games at home tonight against the Utah Jazz (37-42).
The Spurs are coming off a 32-point blow out of the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday and the Jazz are coming off an 11-point loss to Portland on Thursday.
The Chicago Bulls (59-20) are only one game behind the Spurs for the best record in the NBA. The Spurs will be looking to extend their lead in that race with a win, although a win over the Jazz will not be easy as Utah recently beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.
Where The Spurs Are Today
After enduring a six game losing streak a week ago, the Spurs have found their winning ways with two victories against the Phoenix Suns and Kings. They also won in Atlanta against the fifth seeded team in the Eastern conference.
In the game against the Kings Wednesday, the Spurs outscored the Kings 73-43 in the second half. Their offense has found it’s rhythm due to more efficient passing, less turnovers and the shots were finally going in at a high percentage. But the one major detail in the Spurs’ recent improvement is their focused attention to defense. In the win against the Kings, the Spurs held the Kings to 21 third quarter points and 22 fourth quarter points. In the Atlanta victory, the Spurs held the Hawks to 19 points at the end of the third quarter.
George Hill has begun to increase his production right before the playoffs begin as he has scored 20.3 points per game during the current three game win streak.
