The First: Jazz 22, Pistons 19

The Jazz turn the ball over three times in the opening three minutes. Down 11-4, Paul Millsap and Josh Howard score four points during a 10-0 run. It’s 14-11 and, behind Derrick Favors’ two late baskets, Utah maintains the lead.

The Second: Jazz 52, Pistons 48

After an 11-4 run by the Pistons, coach Tyrone Corbin rushes Al Jefferson and Millsap back into the game. The Jazz quickly wipe out a 32-28 deficit, limit Detroit to five points in almost six minutes and regain the momentum.

The Third: Pistons 77, Jazz 75

The Jazz start slowly and the Pistons convert six of seven possessions. They build a 59-56 lead. Oddly, Utah stays close by warming up from the three-point line, after going 3-for-14 in the previous 10 quarters.

The Fourth: Jazz 105, Pistons 90

The Jazz take an 85-82 lead when C.J. Miles buries consecutive three-pointers. But they convert only one of their next five possessions. It’s 87-87 when Jefferson scores, triggering an 11-2 run that dooms Detroit.
