Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz (41-25) took on Dejounte Murray and the San Antonio Spurs (26-41) in part of the NBA Friday slate. The Spurs pulled off the upset victory with 104-102 being the final score.

With the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets looking to move up in the Western Conference standings, the Jazz must continue to win games to keep a safe distance. By failing to do so, now, they are up by just a half-game.

Bojan Bogdanovic was sidelined for this game due to a day-to-day injury. Danuel House Jr. and Royce O’Neale started on the wing and both underwhelmed shooting the ball.

Donovan Mitchell has shouldered much of the scoring burden for the Utah Jazz offense but will need some help from his teammates with Bogdanovic not being in the lineup. He finished with 24 points, seven rebounds, and six assists.

Murray led the way in this one with 27 points, nine rebounds, four assists, and five steals. San Antonio managed to win despite shooting 6-29 (20.7 percent) from beyond the arc with poor overall shooting splits. What proved to be the difference was a 40-point fourth quarter.
