Former University of Utah center Andrew Bogut, who has eased back into a starting role after missing most of the season with an injury, grabbed five rebounds but did not score in 15 minutes.

A Curry 3-pointer with 8:47 left in the third quarter cut the Jazz lead to 66-65, but the Jazz answered with eight straight points, including five from Jefferson. The Warriors didn’t get within six the rest of the game.

While the Jazz don’t need to play to keep their jobs it seemed for a while Tuesday as if that’s what they were doing. They seemed to play with more intensity and edge. With 4:54 remaining, Marvin Williams missed a corner 3-pointer in the corner. Derrick Favors, who scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds, dove out of bounds and saved the ball back to Williams who coolly swished a shot from the same spot.

The Jazz have 27 games remaining, including 14 at EnergySolutions Arena, where they are 21-6. The Jazz also 10 games remaining against the Eastern Conference.

Despite a busy March schedule, the slate of remaining games lines up favorably for the Jazz.

The last remaining question is which players will be around to enjoy it and, if things stick to script, the subsequent playoff run?

“I think that this group has played well together,” Randy Foye said. “We had a lot of key guys out. But it’s a business, a lot of guys get traded every single year, can’t do nothing about it.”
