Jazz Battle For Win
Posted by Nancy on March 05, 2010
For a good share of last nights game against the Phoenix Suns, the Jazz were looking like the lackluster team they had been earlier in the year. After starting off with a 2-0 lead, they quickly fell behind and managed to stay down at least 10 points for the first 3 quarters of the game. Boozer was guarded relentlessly by Robin Lopez which hampered his success at the basket. His shooting stats for the first 3 quarters were 3 of 10. The defensive presence of the Jazz was almost non-existent at this point in the game. Just when almost everyone thought the outcome was sealed and that the Jazz would go home empty handed from a road game once again, things turned around. Deron made two consecutive 3 pointers which may have brought some confidence back to the team who began to deliver from that point on. The Suns who had been enjoying a night of 77 percent shooting experienced a bit of a let down which allowed the Jazz to not only catch up, but to take the lead. The final score was 116-108 with the Jazz gaining 41 of those points in the fourth quarter. Hopefully the team will be on a high from this “come from behind win” that will take them into Saturdays’ game against the L.A. Clippers. Stay tuned.
