SAN ANTONIO — Round 1 of the Jazz-Spurs doubleheader is not going so well for Utah.
San Antonio, the NBA's hottest team, shot 60.6 percent in the first half to take a 57-40 lead at AT&T Center and looks well on its way to winning its 11th game in a row.
The Jazz, meanwhile, have only hit 36.2 percent of their shots and can only hope they play better in the second half or at least Monday when they host the Spurs.
Tony Parker and Al Jefferson lead their respective teams with 10 points.
The Jazz have suffered two injuries in this game.
Backup point guard Earl Watson is being iced in the training room with a sore right knee and is questionable for the second half.
Starting small forward C.J. Miles, meanwhile, will not return after straining his left calf.
