"We had a high opinion of George, that's why we traded for him," Snyder said. "That's the essence of who he is. He's just going to do what is asked of him and what he thinks that he needs to do to help us win games. That's what he's done."

Analysis: The Spurs rallied from an anemic first quarter to capture the lead, but Hill helped steady the young Jazz with a court presence he learned under Gregg Popovich. ''Play like you've been there before,'' Hill said. ''Coach Pop always instilled that into me my first three years here. Don't show really that much emotion, unless it's part of the game, but act like you've been there before. That's what I try to instill in the guys, move onto the next play every time."

He had 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting with three assists and three rebounds.
Analysis: Hill has totaled 42 points on 14 of 32 from the field through two games. He has struggled from 3-point range, misfiring on 10 of 13. Hill will surely see his offense decrease when Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks return.
