In contrast, the Spurs hosted the Jazz next at home and led by 30 points after a 15-31 first quarter, winning 84-113. Kawhi Leonard was great with 22 points off four 3PTers with 8 strong rebounds. The Jazz and Gordon Hayward (3-10) couldn't make a shot.
In a competitive game, the Spurs edged the Blazers 101-106 behind solid team play and a nice 14 points by recent pickup, Shawn Marion, who signed with the Spurs to hopefully win another championship before retirement.
Lastly, the shorthanded Bucks were beaten 92-103 behind 20 points from 6 long balls by Ray Allen. Kawhi Leonard combined with Tony Parker for 32 points. Bucks were without Michael Carter-Williams and Jerryd Bayless, and Jabari Parker had an awful time (4-21) as did OJ Mayo (6-15/0-5 3PT).
