Jazz Fall Under Wizards Spell
Posted by Nancy on January 18, 2011
The Jazz fell to the Washington Wizards with a score of 108-101 which was not exactly how the Jazz had hoped to start off their four game road trip. The Wizards have a dismal record of 12-27 for the year so it is a team that the Jazz should have been able to easily handle. Evidently, there is no such thing as an “easy” game because the Jazz were beaten in field goal percentages, in free throws and in blocked shots. Deron Williams contributed 28 points with 11 assists for the night. The match-up between Deron and Washington’s rookie point guard, John Wall gave Williams the edge in points scored but Wall managed to dish out more assists. Wall also turned the ball over seven times and made no three point attempts. Five players on the Washington team scored in the double figures compared to only three from the Jazz. If the Utah team expects to come away with some wins on this road trip they are going to have to play together as a team which is something that did not happen in yesterday’s game. The Jazz will meet the New Jersey Nets tomorrow night and hopefully try to get things back on the right track.
