Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter (0) and Utah Jazz small forward Richard Jefferson (24) double team Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry (30), as the Utah Jazz faced the Golden State Warriors at the EnergySolutions Arena, Monday, November 18, 2013.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson missed 11 of their first 12 shots.

But you had to know that wouldn’t last forever.

The “Splash Brothers” got it going in the second quarter Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena and never looked back, combining for 39 points in a 98-87 win.

The Jazz looked lifeless in the first half, but got a spark when point guard Diante Garrett was inserted into the game in the third quarter. Garrett had eight points as the Jazz cut a 28-point lead down to 13.

The Warriors finally stopped the bleeding and fought back, pushing the lead to 20.

Jazz guard Ian Clark closed out the game scoring 10 points in four minutes to help make the final score look more respectable as the Jazz fell to 1-11 on the year.
