Utah Jazz fall to Memphis Grizzlies as postseason looms

Utah has only five games to salvage postseason dreams.

< Previous Page

Utah has five games left to save its season. Four are at home. Dwight Howard won’t play for Orlando; LaMarcus Aldridge is out for two games for Portland. But after constantly saying they didn’t want to have to count on other teams to lose just so they could sneak into the postseason, the Jazz know they must suddenly get hot, then hope to get lucky.

"It feels like [we’ve been in the playoffs] for the last two or three weeks," Hayward said. "Each and every game, we’re fighting for our lives here. These last couple ones have been tough on us."
