Jazz Continue Unorthodox Winning Pattern
Posted by Nancy on November 11, 2010
One would have thought it extremely unlikely, if not impossible, that the Jazz would continue their current trend of falling dangerously behind their opponent in the first half of the game and then end up winning. And not just any opponent, but in the last two nights against the two top defensive teams in the NBA. Such would not seem to be the strategy for success but somehow, irrationally and inexplicably, it has been working for the Jazz. Fans had every reason to surmise that their team would come out for this back to back game against the Orlando Magic depleted of energy after battling and winning in overtime against the heavily favored Miami heat the night before. Not so. Perhaps in the early stages of the game that was the case as the team once again played lackluster and found themselves down by 18 to a very talented and successful team led by non other than the superman of basketball, Dwight Howard. How awesome then, when once again the team rallied in the second half and steadily whittled away the big point deficit, finally coming up with another huge win at 104-94. Deron Williams started slow with a poor shooting percentage but was able to regroup and end up with 30 points and 14 assists. Great play continued as well for Paul Millsap who came away with 23 points. Way to go, Jazz. Not bad for a nights work.
