Utah Jazz basketball: Six double-digit scorers give the Jazz a diversified attack
The Spurs certainly have the bigger names than the Jazz with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, but they're also getting great production from players such as Danny Green, Gary Neal and Kawhi Leonard, who has missed the last three weeks with a knee injury.
All are averaging in double figures and, in the last two games alone, Green hit seven 3-pointers for 23 points against Charlotte on Saturday and Neal knocked down seven 3-pointers for 29 points in an overtime win over Houston on Monday.
Look what the Spurs did in their game at Miami a couple of weeks ago, when they got in trouble from the league office for leaving their three stars at home along with Green. The "other" Spurs, including the likes of Matt Bonner, Boris Diaw and Tiago Splitter, gave the defending champion Heat all they could handle before losing in the final minute by five.
After tonight's game, the Jazz go to Phoenix for a game Friday before returning home for a game against Memphis on Saturday.
