Utah Battles Golden State Warriors For Win
Posted by Nancy on April 14, 2010
The Jazz win against Golden State last night was big. With the play-off teams in such a tight race for positioning, it was crucial for the Jazz to get the victory and they desperately need another one tonight against the Phoenix Suns. It promises to be quite a game tonight at Energy Solutions Arena as the Suns came off a huge win last night against Denver which put them at an identical record with the Jazz. The Jazz 103-94 victory over Golden State was not a sure thing at all. The Warriors battled the Jazz head to head until a let up in the third quarter allowed Utah to spring ahead and maintain the lead throughout the remainder of the game. Deron struggled early on with missing shots and foul trouble but C.J. stepped up, as did Paul Millsap who ended up with a career high 24 rebounds. Last nights win gave the Jazz a 21-20 road record for this season which is something they had not accomplished for the last eight years.
The main worry for tonights game is Carlos Boozer, who left the floor against the Warriors only eleven minutes into the game. He suffered a sprained chest muscle and it has not yet been decided if he will be playing tonight. Jazz fans certainly hope so because his talents are going to be needed if Utah wants to get a win tonight. This is a huge game as it will determine who we will be playing in post season and whether or not we get home court advantage. Stay tuned!
