The Jazz (29-28) has now won 10 straight games to get back in the playoff picture. 

All five Spurs starters scored in double figures, led by Pau Gasol's 15 points and 15 rebounds, but San Antonio didn't have the firepower to win playing without Kawhi Leonard, Rudy gay and All-Star Lamarcus Aldridge.

Injuries have started to catch up with the Spurs (35-23), which has now lost four out of its last five games.

STUD OF THE NIGHT

DeAndre Jordan is still with the Clippers despite constant rumors linking him to other teams before last week's trade deadline, and he made his presence felt in a 114-101 win over the Nets. Jordan scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting and 17 rebounds.

DUD OF THE NIGHT

It's hard to pick on the Knicks right now given all its injury woes, but Tim Hardaway Jr. signed a monster contract this offseason and he was poor in Monday's 108-92 loss to the 76ers. Hardaway scored just nine points on 4-of-16 shooting (0 for 8 from 3-point range) in 34 minutes.
