Jazz Get Back In The Groove
Posted by Nancy on December 14, 2010
After going down in defeat once again to the Dallas Mavericks, the Jazz regrouped and came out strong Monday night against the Golden State Warriors, winning the game of 108-95. Defying their current method of operation, they played a strong first quarter and stayed close to their opponent the entire evening. Hopefully they are realizing that it’s much easier to get a win when you don’t dig yourself a huge hole early in the action which causes you to play catch-up for the rest of the night. It was a fun encounter for Jazz fans who witnessed some “testiness” between Deron Williams and Monta Ellis toward the end of the game. Williams continued his new trend of getting 30 or more points a game and ended up with 30 points and 10 assists to go along with 20 points from C.J. Miles and 16 from Paul Millsap. Second round rookie, Jeremy Evans, is looking like a great find for the Jazz. He ended up with 9 points in 9 minutes of exceptional play. One has to believe that this talented and energetic young man is going to be a crowd favorite in the coming months and years. The next game will be Friday night when the Jazz will leave the friendly confines of the Energy Solutions Arena to face the New Orleans Hornets for the second time this season.
