"I didn’t want them to set up, he said. "I thought we had them on their heels and we’d get an opportunity going to the basket. But Devin didn’t see his gap -- or didn’t get a gap -- and took a jump shot."

Said Harris: "We said we were going to go and try to get the best look possible. .. But I kind of got hung up."

In overtime, Utah converted six of eight possessions and cruised to its fifth straight home win.

"The frustrating thing," said Golden State coach Mark Jackson, "is we had an opportunity to close out this game. We needed one stop and didn’t get it."
