SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz will return from the All-Star break riding a four-game winning streak. They will host the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Jazz will wear the uniforms that they have the least amount of success in this season, the gold statement jerseys.

Utah is 1-6 in those uniforms this season but haven’t worn them since December 2 when they lost to the Philadelphia 76ers on the road. According to the jersey schedule that the Jazz sent out on social media before the season, Utah was supposed to wear the statement uniforms four times since December 2.

They wore their association (traditional home) jerseys in three of those games and their icon (traditional road) jerseys once. The Jazz won all four games that they were supposed to wear the statement uniforms.

Jazz fans know very well how the team plays when wearing the gold uni’s. When the Jazz announced on Twitter that they are wearing those jerseys, fans were nervous about the game against the Spurs.

Some fans comments include “Does the curse end tonight? Or we just schedule an L?” Or “please not the yellows!”

The Jazz lost their only meeting to the Spurs this season back on January 29 in San Antonio. That was in the middle of their five-game losing streak.

Tip-off between Utah and San Antonio is at 7 p.m. on AT&T SportsNet.
