The San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz meet Friday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The San Antonio Spurs need a win after losing five of their last six games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 113.2 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 114.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 23 points and 5.7 rebounds while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 19.1 points and 2.4 assists. Patty Mills is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 1.9 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have lost six of their last seven road games.

The Utah Jazz look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 111.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 107.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.3 points and 4.3 assists while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 21 points and 4.1 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 14.6 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.8 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.7 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won 11 of their last 13 home games.

The Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Jazz are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The over is 4-0-1 in Spurs last 5 overall. The over is 11-5 in Jazz last 16 overall. The Spurs are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah.

You're never sure which San Antonio Spurs team you're going to get from game to game. The Spurs can either look like a playoff caliber team that plays hard at both ends or not give any effort defensively and roll over to bottom feeders. The good thing is a veteran Spurs team had a week off to get their mind right and regroup for one last effort to keep their playoff streak alive. The Jazz have won their last four games, but they've been in some dogfights and have lost three of the last five to the Spurs. Give me the points.
