Mav’s Get Fired Up Against Stone-Cold Jazz
Posted by Nancy on December 04, 2010
Once again, in front of thousands of hopeful fans, the Utah Jazz falter and disappoint their home crowd. After a seven game winning streak in which the team seemed to be clicking on all cylinders and playing with energy and focus it all seemed to come to an end when Dallas came to town. The Mavericks also came into this game with a seven game winning streak on the line but it was they who were able to add another win to their record while the Jazz have now come up short six times in this early part of the season at the Energy Solutions Arena. It’s true that you can’t win every game but it would be nice to see some real hustle and intensity even in those games that you lose. Kirilenko made some good plays during the game but missed some crucial shots and ended up with only 5 points. Deron showed some energy but a lot of his shots didn’t fall which resulted in only 12 points on the score sheet from our star player. No one could stop Dirk Nowitski who appeared to score at will and lead his team to a victory with 26 points. The Jazz will have to put this one behind them and concentrate on coming up with a home win when they meet the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night.
