SAS: Fight on the Glass
The San Antonio Spurs lost their last matchup with the Utah Jazz. When it came down to it, the Spurs’ failure stemmed from their inability to compete on the boards.
In their loss to the Jazz, the Spurs were outrebounded 50 to 37. It was on both ends of the court, as Utah collected 14 of their rebounds on the offensive end.
The Spurs need to be competitive on the boards if they want to win this match. They aren’t deep in the front court, so Jakob Poeltl and Gorgui Dieng will have the work on the glass and hope for support from their wing players.
Spurs Key Player: (G) Dejounte Murray
— San Antonio Spurs (@spurs) April 29, 2021
While Demar Derozan is the scoring leader, Dejounte Murray needs to take a more focused role in the offence.
In 34 minutes of play in his last game, Murray posted 15 points, six rebounds, and five assists.
Murray needs to be aggressive if the Spurs hope to win this game. The Spurs lack shooting as a whole, so Murray needs to force opportunities to make create better chances.
UTA: Improve Shots Selection
The Utah Jazz are the fourth best three-point shooting team in the NBA, while ranking top in both attempts and makes. But in their last game, the Jazz struggled where they usually succeed.
In their 110 to 99 win over the Spurs, the Jazz shot just 11 of 36 from three-point range. They had opportunities, but they weren’t able to convert when needed.
Joe Ingles and Jordan Clarkson did well to find their teammates, but if their teammates continue to struggle they’ll need to be more selfish on the offensive end.
Jazz Key Player: (F) Bojan Bogdanovic
No Mitchell, no Conley, plenty of Bojan.

— NBA Fantasy (@NBAFantasy) May 2, 2021
Forward Bojan Bogdanovic is on a tear through his last four games. Always a threat to score the ball, Bogdanovic has filled in during Mitchell’s absence admirably.
In his last game against the Spurs, Bogdanovic posted 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting from the field. While his three-point shot wasn’t falling, two of seven on the night, he still found other ways to score.
Without Conley and Mitchell, Bogdanovic is the primary option on offence for the Jazz. The Spurs defence will be keying in on him more, so “Bo-Bo’s” playmaking will be tested as well.
