The Utah Jazz and the New York Knicks combined to make 24 three pointers in last night’s game, Utah ended up winning 131 to 125. Deron Williams led the Jazz with 24 points, 7 boards, 12 dimes, and 2 steals! The Knicks were led by Raymond Felton with 23 points, 7 rebounds, 11 assists, and 1 steal! Each team’s PG had a great game, the only time the Knicks were ahead was at the end of the first quarter and that was by only 1 point! Utah made it’s run in the 2nd quarter, they got the lead to as many as 16. Deron Williams just had more help than Raymond Felton, 6 other Jazz players scored in double-figures! Super Sub CJ Miles came of the bench to net 24 points and Memeht Okur scored 10 points in just 12 minutes!! Every member of Utah’s starting 5 scored in double figures!! Raja Bell had 18 points while hitting 4 of his 8 three point attempts. No one else on the team had a double-double outside of Deron Williams, Paul Milsap and Al Jefferson did score 17 and 19 points respectively. Andrei Kirilenko had one of his better games with 14 points, 6 boards, 7 dimes, and 2 blocks! There was no defense played in this game, both teams shot over 50%. New York shot 50.6% and Utah shot 58.6% from the field, each team shot over 44 percent from three as well( NY-48.3% to Utah-45.5%)!! The Jazz move to 26-13 and 14-7 at home, they get a chance to improve that home record Friday when the Cleveland Cavaliers come to town. The Cavaliers lost to the Lakers by 55 POINTS just 2 nights ago!! I hope they bring a better effort to Utah, the Jazz should be ready for business as usual. You would expect a team to come out with a lot of emotion following that kind of poor showing. Utah needs to take care of business and dispose of the Cavs for another win, the Jazz are still tied for First in their division with the Thunder.
