The San Antonio Spurs (52-16) and the Utah Jazz (34-34) will face off tonight in San Antonio in what could be a possible first round playoff matchup preview with the Spurs sitting atop the Western Conference and the Jazz trailing the Lakers for the final playoff spot. It might also be the return of guard Tony Parker to the Spurs' lineup after dealing with a left ankle injury. The team announced he is active and available for tonight's game. This will be the Spurs and Jazz final meeting this season with the two teams splitting the first two games. In the recent game, the Spurs lost to the Jazz in Utah 96-99. Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 22 points, 21 rebounds and 6 blocks while Paul Millsap led the Jazz with 24 points and 12 rebounds. The Spurs are coming off a 104-93 win at home over the Warriors. Duncan paced the Spurs with 25 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 blocks. The Jazz are coming off a 93-100 loss to the Rockets in Houston. Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 27 points in a losing effort. And as the Spurs and Jazz get set to meet for the final time in the regular season, here are five thing to watch for during tonight's contest: • Spurs' Duncan is three rebounds shy of passing Shaquille O'Neal for 13th place on the NBA's all-time rebounds list. • The Jazz have been outscored by an average of 19.3 points in the opening 24 minutes in their last three road games. • Jazz Al Jefferson has 31 double-doubles in 64 games played this season. • The Jazz have the second most comeback wins in the league after trailing by at least 10 points in a game (13).   • The Jazz are 18-8 overall on the season when scoring 100 or more points.
