Jazz Edge Thunder For Huge Win
Posted by Nancy on April 07, 2010
Some are touting last nights’ game between the Utah Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder as “the game of the year”. It was, without a a doubt, a real nail-biter right up until the last second of the game. Both teams were hot to win this one in order to move up in the standings and with only a handful of games left for either team, a win was considered all-important for both organizations. Kevin Durrant was almost robotic in his accuracy. He ended up with 45 points, tying his career high score. Not to be outdone, Deron Williams was also on fire. He scored 42 points which was a career high for him. He was the force that lifted the Jazz to the final 140-139 victory. Carlos pulled down 15 big rebounds which were sorely needed in this match-up against the much taller team.
There was a point in the game when Deron went down hard after being fouled and it appeared that the entire Energy Solutions Arena held its’ collective breath until it was determined that he probably just had the wind knocked out of him. One thing is for certain, the Jazz cannot get to where they want to be without the play of Deron Williams. Here’s hoping that they still have something left in the tank for tonights away game against the Houston Rockets.
