Bucks Run Away From Jazz
Posted by Nancy on March 13, 2010
Ending a three game winning streak, the Jazz fall to the Milwaukee Bucks 87-95. Falling behind in the game, no doubt the Jazz had hopes of once again climbing out of the hole they had dug for themselves. After all they have already had at least five games this season where they have come back from a combined deficit of 88 points to claim the victory. Not so on this Friday night when Kirilenko went out with a strained left calf leaving the team without his long arm of defense combined with the ugly statistic of shooting 0-10 on three pointers. They had their chances. The score was all tied up at 87 with a mere 36 seconds to play in the game only to see Milwaukee go on an 8-0 run which sealed their fate.
Unfortunately, the teams which the Jazz are in hot contention with for top spots in the Western Conference also played last night but they each won their match-ups.
The statistics were fairly even for both teams (field gold percentage, points in the paint, assists, etc.) but the real story behind the Jazz loss was the three point drought. Utah will have to regroup and come out hungry for a win when they meet Oklahoma City on Sunday.
