(SALT LAKE CITY) — No Tim Duncan, no Manu Ginobili, and no Tony Parker, equals no win for the San Antonio Spurs. The Utah Jazz took advantage of the absence of the three stars and snapped the Spurs 11-game win streak, beating them 91-84.
The win was big for Utah (30-28) who finds itself a game and a half out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Point guard Devin Harris led the Jazz with 25 points, scoring 12 in the fourth quarter.
“The big difference in the game, like with a lot of NBA games down the stretch, is making shots,” Spurs head coach Greg Popovich said. “Harris came down and knocked down two in transition in a row, and on the other end we couldn’t throw it in the ocean.”
The Spurs will look to start a new streak Wednesday, when they host the Los Angeles Lakers.
