They did it again, and yes the “IT” I’m referring to is rallying from yet another double digit deficit to keep their recent winning streak alive! Tonight’s deficit was 16, this time it took a little longer for the Jazz to get the lead as Deron Williams hit a runner with eight-tenths of a second left on the game clock to give the Jazz the lead and the win. Williams finished the night with 17 points & 9 assists, Al Jefferson had 19 points with 6 rebounds & 3 blocks, Milsap contributed to the cause with 17 points, and last but not least CJ Miles off the bench with 14 points. 5 games, 5 wins, and 5 comebacks. That’s crazy when you think about it, what is it that makes the Jazz start so SLOW?? Obviously they’re a good team if they keep coming out on top at the game’s end, Coach Sloan has to find a way to get his team to open the game with the same spark they finish games. Speaking of Coach Sloan it’s been rumored that he will sign an extension soon, I hope he does because he’s a great coach and is somehow underrated. Up next for the division leading Jazz are none other than the Oklahoma City Thunder, that game is to be played on Monday at 9 pm. Finally the Jazz will be playing at home, maybe that will be the spark they need to get out to a good start. Home Cookin!! The big issue for the Thunder will be whether Jeff Green returns for this match-up, otherwise it will be the dynamic duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Don’t be fooled by the loss of Jeff Green, yes they do miss him but it provides a chance for Serge Ibalka to get more minutes. It’s just a different skill set to deal with, either way the Jazz will have their hands full because the Thunder can’t afford to fall further behind the Jazz(they currently trail by 1 game). Who do you have winning that one, OKC or the Jazz??
