The Utah Jazz literally GAVE this game away to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Jazz committed way too many turnovers in this game. Memphis took advantage of every opportunity and ran away with this game 103-85!! Memphis was led by Zach Randolph with his 19 points and 13 rebounds, Utah didn’t lose because they couldn’t score. It was the number of possessions WASTED by the Jazz, Utah turned the ball over 17 TIMES to Memphis’s 9 turnovers!! It is extremely difficult to win like that, Utah did shoot 48% from the field. The issue with that is that they allowed the Grizzlies to shoot 51%, an interesting part of this game is that Devin Harris started and only played 3 minutes due to a hamstring injury. I wonder how much his absence contributed to the absurd amount of turnovers Utah had. Ronnie Price and Earl Watson were only responsible for 5 of the 17 turnovers, Andrei Kirilenko led the Jazz with 4 turnovers. Paul Milsap led the Jazz with 15 points and 6 rebounds, Al Jefferson finished with 12 points and 4 boards. CJ Miles really struggled going 1 of 8 from the field and only scoring 10 points. Jeremy Evans and Gordon Hayward each scored 8 points a piece for the Jazz, Earl Watson led the 2nd unit with 9 points. Utah is in a critical stretch of their season, if they don’t do anything now it’s over. This season is over and it’s time to look forward to next year and how this organization plans to build this team. Do you start over with those 2 First Round picks in this year’s draft, or do you keep this core and draft bench players?? Utah is going to be in an interesting position heading into this off-season no matter what the outcome of this season is, playoffs or not!! Do you think the Jazz can get it together and make the playoffs??
