Utah Jazz (8-5) at Memphis Grizzlies (4-8), 8:00 p.m.
(Sports Network) - Utah concludes a quick two-game road trip Saturday when they head to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies.
San Antonio's Roger Mason dropped a season-high 29 points and George Hill contributed a career-high 23 points in the Spurs 119-94 blowout victory over Utah, San Antonio's 19th straight regular season win at home against the Jazz.
The short-handed Jazz, who are a perfect 6-0 in Salt Lake City but just 2-5 on the road, were without star forward Carlos Boozer, who suffered a strained left quad tendon in Wednesday's win over Milwaukee.
Ronnie Brewer posted a team-high 17 points for Utah, which also missed guard Deron Williams (ankle), forward Kyle Korver (wrist) and center Jarron Collins (wrist) en route to snapping a two-game winning streak.
C.J. Miles logged 16 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in defeat.
Boozer remains doubtful for tonight's game while Williams and Korver will each be gametime decisions.
The Grizzlies also fell Friday when Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki had a game-high 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Mavericks got their first home win of the season at the expense of Memphis in a 91-76 victory at American Airlines Center.
Rookie star O.J. Mayo had 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Grizzlies, who snapped a four-game skid Tuesday but have dropped five of six.
Rudy Gay and Mike Conley donated 14 points apiece with Gay adding eight boards and five assists in the loss.
Utah has won five straight and six of its last seven meetings against the Grizz.
