The San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz will square off tonight in Salt Lake City as San Antonio's Rodeo Road Trip continues.
The Spurs are coming off a hard-fought overtime win over the Clippers on Saturday that was costly. San Antonio saw two of their key players succumb to injuries. Tiago Splitter suffered a sprained right calf in the first quarter, and Manu Ginobili, later in the game, with a strained left oblique muscle.
The last time these two teams met was this past December where San Antonio won 104-89 in San Antonio.
So as the Spurs put their 10-game winning streak on the line tonight against the Jazz, here are five things to watch for in tonight's contest.
History is on the Spurs' side. Utah has not taken the season series from San Antonio since 1997-1998.
