Jazz Rally To Win At Buzzer
Posted By Wilson Tarpeh Jr. On Mar 9 2011 @ 11:30 pm In Utah Jazz | No Comments
The Utah Jazz got a bit of their rally magic back from earlier in the season, this time they went down 14 and rallied for the win. To make it even more exciting was that the rally wasn’t complete until the buzzer sounded. The Jazz had come back and tied the game at 94, Devin Harris(23 points) let the clock tick down so the Jazz would have the last shot, he drove to the basket to attempt a layup, the shot was off the mark and out of nowhere came Al Jefferson to tip the ball in AT the buzzer!! Utah beat the Toronto Raptors 96-94 to rebound from the ugly loss they suffered at the hands of the New York Knicks on Monday night. Al Jefferson has been having an All Star caliber season in my opinion, he was definitely a snub if you ask me. Big Al had 34 points and 8 rebounds, he didn’t have the his front court mate Paul Milsap with him tonight who was out with a left knee injury. Andrei Kirilenko didn’t play either as he was suffering from back spasms, CJ Miles and Jeremy Evans got to start in their place. CJ Miles had a big game in with 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists. Evans had 2 points, 5 rebounds, and a block in 15 minutes of playing time. Toronto was led by DeMarr DeRozan(17 points) and Sonny Weems(16 points), the Raptors were up by 14 with 8:21 left in the game before the Jazz came back. Miles had a big 4th quarter, he scored 10 points to help bring the Jazz back. Utah’ s win helped put them back in the winner’s circle for the first time in a while, they are now 34-31 and trying to fight for that 8th Playoff spot. Utah is 7 games back in their own division, their next game is Friday in Minnesota against the Timberwolves. Hopefully the shorthanded Jazz can take care of business, rally or not.
