The San Antonio Spurs and the Utah Jazz played Game 1 of their opening-round 2012 NBA Playoffs series on Sunday and the hometown Spurs coasted to a 15-point victory to go up 1-0 in the best-of-seven tilt. The game looked every bit the matchup between a No. 1 seed and a No. 8 seed and the Spurs will look to go up 2-0 on Wednesday night.
The Jazz, for their part, will be attempting to take a game and even the series before the teams head to Utah. The Jazz are attempting to prove they belong in the playoffs, but they'll need to make a more compelling argument than they showed in Game 1.
Wednesday night's game will tip off at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on TNT.
