Another game, another comeback by the Utah Jazz. CJ Miles gets the headline for Utah this time, Miles had five 3 pointers in the 4th quarter. Miles hit SEVEN 3 pointers last night, he attempted 10 total!! Al Jefferson came to play as well, Jefferson had a double double (20 pts, 14 rebs) to help the Jazz to victory. Deron Williams had a quiet night with 12 pts, 11 dimes, and an uncharacteristically high 5 turnovers. Utah had 4 of their starting 5 finish in double figures, they were down 74-65 heading into the 4th quarter. Utah didn’t capture the lead until midway through the 4th quarter on a CJ Miles 3. The Jazz are now 6-2 on the road, they need to find a way to carry that success on the road back to Energy Solutions Arena. Their home record has to improve, last night’s win improves the Jazz record to 9-5. That still has them a half game back of the Division leading Oklahoma City Thunder, they have a couple big games this week. Tomorrow night’s opponent will be the Sacramento Kings here in Utah, the Kings are 4-7 and not to be taken lightly. The Kings are just young, they have no shortage of talent on their roster. For the Kings, it’s just a matter of time before they grow to become a cohesive unit. Tyreke Evans is a matchup nightmare, and if the Kings ever learn how to use rookie Demarcus Cousins WATCH OUT. The Jazz opponent on Wednesday will be the 11-1 New Orleans Hornets, the game will be here in Utah. The home fans will be treated to another great meeting between Deron Williams and Chris Paul, whenever they play it is usually an extremely competitive game. Williams and Paul are not only members of the same draft class, but THE two premier candidates for the title of the BEST PG in the NBA. Who do you think will come out on top, CP3 and the Hornets or D-Will and the Jazz? Let me not get ahead of myself, will the Jazz take advantage of their home court and beat the Kings? Or will they go 1-1 on this home stand??
