San Antonio continues to roll as they won their sixth straight game and improved to 21-0 at the AT&T Center after defeating the Utah Jazz 123-98 Wednesday.
The Good: As a team, San Antonio was nearly lights out from the floor shooting 60.5 percent. They made 52 of 86 from the floor. They continued to move the ball well as they assisted on 34 of those made baskets. Tim Duncan was in charge against the Utah Jazz front-court, or lack there of. Duncan finished with a season-high 18 points. He also had eight rebounds and six assists.
The bench was extraordinary. They contributed for 70 of the Spurs 123. That is right, 70! Spurs bench saw five players reach double figures.
The Bad: Tony Parker missed his second straight game due to right hip soreness.
X-Factor: I am going to have to say it was the aggressive play of Duncan. The Jazz were without their big men Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors so the Spurs and Duncan took advantage of that. In the paint the Spurs dominated. They were plus 32 in that category (68-36).
