The Utah Jazz have been a thorn in San Antonio’s side going back to the days when John Stockton ran the point and Karl Malone roamed the paint. More recently, the Jazz helped usher in a December to forget, when Kawhi Leonard injured his shooting hand during a loss in Salt Lake City. While remnants of the holiday hangover appear to be lurking in the shadows, Leonard is expected back on the hardwood sometime this week. While an appearance by Leonard Sunday would be a welcome boon, next Friday night against the Lakers and Kobe Bryant feels like a safer pick for his much welcomed return.
