Through 2 Quarters
The Utah Jazz can’t call it a day yet, but they are winning as expected. They have emerged as the frontrunner at halftime and are ahead of the San Antonio Spurs 53-46.
Utah has enjoyed the tag-team combination of center Hassan Whiteside and center Rudy Gobert. The former has nine points in addition to four rebounds, while the latter has eight points along with seven boards. A double-double would be Gobert’s 10th in a row. Gobert does need to be careful, however, as he is in early foul trouble with three.
San Antonio hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to eight points or fewer.
The Spurs haven’t been much of a second-half team this year, losing 83% of the time when they were down at the break.

What to Know
The Utah Jazz have enjoyed the comforts of home their last six games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the San Antonio Spurs in a holiday battle at 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday at AT&T Center. Keep an eye on the score for this one: these two teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet.
Utah ultimately received the gift of a 120-116 win from a begrudging Dallas squad this past Saturday. They can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, who had 33 points, and point guard Mike Conley, who had 22 points and five assists along with seven boards.
Meanwhile, the sound you heard on Sunday was the absolute smackdown San Antonio laid on the Detroit Pistons. With the Spurs ahead 78-54 at the half, the game was all but over already. San Antonio’s small forward Keldon Johnson was one of the most active players for the squad, picking up 27 points in addition to five rebounds.
Utah is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past five games.
Utah is now 23-9 while San Antonio sits at 14-18. The Jazz are 16-6 after wins this season, the Spurs 5-8.
