Reeling Jazz return home to face Spurs

Jan 26, 2011 - 4:36 PM (Sports Network) - The Utah Jazz are back in Salt Lake City after an unsuccessful road trip and will entertain the San Antonio Spurs tonight from EnergySolutions Arena.

Utah lost all five games on its trek and concluded the swing with Tuesday's 120-91 loss to the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. Deron Williams scored 17 points and C.J. Miles finished with 14 for the Jazz, who also lost games in Washington, New Jersey, Boston and Philadelphia.

"We've just been struggling with everybody," said Williams. "We lack chemistry and continuity on offense and defense."

Al Jefferson compiled 10 points and nine boards, while Paul Millsap contributed 11 points and six rebounds in defeat. The Jazz will also host Minnesota and are 15-7 at home this season.

The last time the Jazz lost five in a row was a six-game slide from Dec. 4-14 of the 2007-08 campaign.

San Antonio is in the midst of playing 12 of 13 games on the road and will close out a three-game trek Wednesday in Utah. It is coming off Monday's 113-102 victory at Golden State and got 20 points and seven assists from Manu Ginobili. Tim Duncan shook off a knee injury to post 16 points and seven rebounds for the Spurs, who have won nine of their last 10 games and rebounded from a loss at New Orleans.

"Just fell wrong, got my knee caught underneath me," Duncan told NBA.com. "Played the second half, so it feels OK."

Tony Parker provided 18 points and 11 assists and both Antonio McDyess and George Hill ended with 14 points in a winning effort. San Antonio will return home to face Houston before hitting the road again for nine straight. The Spurs are 14-5 away from the Alamo City this season.

San Antonio defeated the Jazz, 94-82, on Nov. 19 this season in Utah's capital to snap a four-game losing streak in the series. The Spurs are 30-10 in the previous 40 meetings with the Jazz.
