Jason said he’s in Disneyland so I’m taking over the post game duties for now.
I was at this game, and boy was the ending aggravating. The Jazz had their chances, plenty of them, but couldn’t get it done. Richard Jefferson finally made the Jazz pay by hitting a huge 3-ball to give San Antonio a five point lead with six seconds left.
Tony Parker put up 23 and 11, Tim Duncan had 20 and seven, and freaking Matt Bonner hit like a million 3-pointers (5-of-6) to add 20 off the bench.
Al Jefferson scored 20 and 11, tallying two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Paul Millsap had 16 and 11, and Devin Harris had one of his better outings with 15 and four assists. CJ Miles provided a spark off the bench before his usual bone-headed-ness got him yanked from the game. Josh Howard also had one of his better games, but some errant passes hurt the Jazz in the final minutes.
Alec Burks had some phenomenal plays in the first half, including a pick-pocket steal and awesome slam dunk, but didn’t play much of a factor during his second half stint.
The Jazz fall below .500, now standing at 15-16, and will head to Minnesota to face the Wolves on Wednesday.
