The Jazz will not have Rudy Gobert (low back soreness) and Mike Conley (right knee soreness) as they take on the Spurs in their last game of the season.
It has been rumored that the Jazz and Thunder are hoping to play the Nuggets over the Rockets in the first round. The Jazz are currently in pole position and need to lose their last game on Thursday against the Spurs in order to clinch the sixth seed and face the Nuggets in the first round. It is very strange to think that a team will try to lose in order to win, but here we are. Tony Bradley is the primary beneficiary with Gobert sidelined while several players will see a small increase in value with the Conley news.
