Despite energy, the Jazz still lose to San Antonio Spurs

Utah goes toe-to-toe with West’s best team, but loses its eighth straight road game.



< Previous Page


Each time the Spurs made a run, though, the Jazz had an answer. In the third quarter, the Spurs tied the game at 49, but Jefferson answered with a jump shot. The score was once again knotted at 60 after a Boris Diaw layup, but Alec Burks made a jumper on the following possession.

The Spurs took their first lead of the second half on a basket by Kawhi Leonard with 10:04 remaining, and the Jazz answered with back-to-back steals that led to dunks by Favors and Burks.

The Jazz have not won on the road since Feb. 13, a stretch of eight games. They have gone from five games up on the Lakers for the eighth seed in the West, to trailing now by multiple games.

"The way we played since the All-Star break on the road hadn’t really been us," Marvin Williams said.

The Jazz of Friday night, they hope, will be.
