[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the San Antonio Spurs last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 101 to 97 Jazz victory. The win bumps Utah's record up to 51-31 on the season, while the loss drags San Antonio's down to 61-21. Though a win's a win and Jazz fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, LaMarcus Aldridge's 18 points, 5 rebounds, 0 assists, 1 blocks and 3 steals in 34 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Aldridge, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Jazz. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get San Antonio back in the win column before too long.
At the helm for the Jazz in the victory was George Hill and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Aldridge, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Hill posted 13 points, 2 rebounds and 5 assists in the win.
Utah's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Spurs, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Jazz will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the while the visiting Spurs will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
Aldridge 35.0 FP
Hill 28.5 FP
