Atlanta • The Utah Jazz blew a 15-point lead and lost 103-95 to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday at Philips Arena. Despite six 3-pointers from Randy Foye, who finished with a game-high 25 points, the Jazz were undone by a very familiar face. Former point guard Devin Harris scored 24 points in his first game against the Jazz since being traded to Atlanta in the offseason. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter. The Jazz led 75-60 before committing five turnovers on their final seven possessions of the third quarter. Jamaal Tinsley attempted two free throws with 1:08 remaining that could have tied the game, but split them. The Hawks closed the game on a 7-0 run.

The Hawks broke a four-game losing streak. The Jazz play at Detroit on Saturday before returning home to play the defending champion Heat on Monday. boram@sltrib.com Twitter: @tribjazz
