Utah is doing a decent job staying afloat without their star point guard, they never once trailed in last night’s win against the Bobcats. The Jazz beat the Bobcats 83-78, Utah was fueled by the performances of their front line. Utah’s bigs played a great game, all three players had recorded a double-double. Andrei Kirilenko had 13 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Paul Milsap scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, Utah blocked 10 shots as a team. Al Jefferson scored 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks. The Jazz bigs led them to a win on the boards, out boarding the Bobcats 49-36. Deron Williams is now listed day-to-day with that hyper-extended right wrist, once again Earl Watson played a decent game with 5 points and 6 assists. Watson didn’t turn the ball over once, he also had 3 rebounds. CJ Miles was up to his normal self, providing 20 points off the bench. Utah won a game they desperately needed to win, not because of the opponent but because of their place in the division. Utah advanced to 29-20, Denver lost last night so that put the Jazz back in 2nd place in the division. They are now exactly 2 games back of the division leading Thunder, Utah’s home record is now 17-8. Utah gets to stay home and enjoy the home cooking, their next game is on Wednesday against the Rockets. The Jazz need to try to use this formula again against the Rockets, they are not a very big team physically. If Utah’s bigs can show up and impose their will, the Jazz might be able to cut that Thunder lead to 1 game. I wish Deron Williams a speedy recovery as do every Jazz fan out there!!
