No. 13 Utah draws inspiration from San Antonio Spurs

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak looked to the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs when he needed a model for his offense during the offseason. The No. 13 Utes don't have a dominant scorer that can simply take over when needed, so he had to find another way to maximize their offensive potential.

Arizona State saw the results of that Thursday night in an 83-41 loss in which eight Utah players scored at least eight points.

Coaches tend to be copycats when they see peers having success, so Krystkowiak poached parts of the Spurs' scheme and mixed it with his own motion offense. Now Utah is No. 5 in the country with a plus-16.5 scoring margin and ranks in the top eight in field goal percentage, true shooting percentage and points per shot.
