They are coming to this matchup against the San Antonio Spurs carrying a 3-2 record and hope to seal their first back-to-back wins of the season. Their most recent matchup was a convincing victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, 106-100. Mike Conley was the best player for the team as he tallied 33 points, seven assists, and seven three-pointers. Donovan Mitchell had a fair night doing just 15 points while Rudy Gobert did 12 points and nine boards. Some players are still feeling their way inside the Jazz system this year.
