Jazz Match Denver’s Agressiveness And Win
Posted by Nancy on February 05, 2011
Last night’s game between the Utah Jazz and the Denver Nuggets was action packed from the start to the finish with Utah coming out on top with a score of 113-106. After such a dismal month for the Jazz it was anybodies guess as to how they would come out against this rival team and with more injuries sidelining premier players one had to wonder if they would have enough of a team to even make a game of it. But make a game of it they did and then some. Deron Williams was back in action after missing the last four games and had a quickness in his step asnd a fire in his eyes that had been missing for quite a while and which resulted in his adding 26 points to the win. Top scorer for the night was big Al Jefferson who was tough under the basket all night. Raja Bell had his best game of the year and contributed 20 points even while being worked over by Denver’s J.R. Smith for a good share of the night. Smith was ejected from the game after a very hard (and potentially dangerous) flagrant 2 foul against Raja. It was a hard fought win and it was great to see the Jazz playing the kiind of terrific basketball that they are capable of.
