SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz suffered their seventh straight loss after falling to the San Antonio Spurs 118-111 on Wednesday.

Collin Sexton scored 26 points, marking his ninth straight 20-point game for the Jazz.

Devin Vassell led the Spurs with 31 points.

Jazz Have Worst Record Since Trade Deadline

With their 18th loss in their last 21 outings, the Jazz have the worst record in the NBA since the trade deadline, and are in the midst of their worst 20-game stretch since 2014.

Despite winning the second, third, and fourth quarters, the Jazz were outscored 29-15 in the first period and never erased the massive deficit to open the game.

“When you start the game that way, and you dig yourself a hole, everything’s amplified for the rest of the game,” Jazz coach Will Hardy said. “Every turnover feels like the weight of the world.”

The Jazz committed nine of their 21 turnovers in the first quarter, including two each from John Collins, Kira Lewis Jr., and Walker Kessler.

Keyonte George bounced back from his recent poor shooting streak knocking down 5-12 field goal attempts en route to a 14-point, eight-assist outing, but committed five turnovers in the loss.

“I’m asking a lot of Keyonte, and I think for the most part, he’s handling it very well,” Hardy added. “He played almost 40 minutes and he had the ball a lot.”

At 3-18 since the trade deadline, the Jazz now sit behind the 4-19 Portland Trail Blazers as the league’s worst team since February 8.
