Jazz Win Big – No Bull!
Posted by Nancy on March 10, 2010
The Utah Jazz matched up against the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night. The Bulls had an overall record of 31-31 coming into the game including three losses in their last three games.
It was an interesting match-up against two all-star caliber players in Utahs’ Deron Williams and Bulls guard, Derrick Rose. Both played very well on this particular night with Deron taking the edge in the stats with 28 points and 17 assists to Roses’ 25 points and 13 assists.
The first half of the game saw fairly equal performances from both teams which the halftime score reflected but the Jazz kicked things into gear for the second half. Improved hustle gave the Jazz a 9 point lead with a minute and a half left in the third quarter and they owned the final quarter of the game finishing with a score of 132-108. C.J. Miles came up big racking up 26 points for Utah.
The Jazz have now won eight of their last 10 road games and with a grueling schedule for the remainder of the week with games against Detroit, Milwaukee and Oklahoma City, the hope is that the winning trend can continue.
