Kragthorpe: Analysis of Jazz 107, Sixers 91
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

A quick look at the Jazz's 107-91 win over Philadelphia on Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena:

What happened: The Jazz scored the game's first 10 points, wobbled for a while, then scored 13 straight points late in the first half to take control and cruise to a win that broke their four-game losing streak.

What went right: Pretty much everything. The Jazz featured nice balance (eight players scored nine or more points), good shooting and decent defense. This was a rare case lately of the Jazz's dominating an inferior opponent.

What went wrong: The Jazz struggled to score in the middle of the first half, but even that was not costly, because Randy Foye and Mo Williams eventually shot the team out of its slump.

What it means: The victory keeps the Jazz reasonably close to the Los Angeles Lakers, who took a two-game lead into Monday's play (the Lakers visited Golden State in a late game). The blowout also kept anyone from having to play extended minutes after a three-game road trip.

What's next: The Jazz (35-36) remain home to play Phoenix on Wednesday, followed by a game Friday at Portland before they come back to ESA to meet Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.
