We got off to a great start behind Hayward’s 11 points in the first quarter. But Memphis charged back with a 16-2 third quarter run that put the Grizzlies ahead for good. The Jazz had several chances late in the game, but couldn’t make the most of them.
The Jazz were dominated inside. Zack Randolph scored 16 with 18 boards, while Marc Gasol added 22 & 8. Once again the Jazz allow a no-name guy to dominate them multiple times throughout the game, in Quincy Pondexter, who scored 14 points when he only averages two.
Hayward had arguably his best game of the season with 19 points and five rebounds, and Mo had another solid game with 17 & 8. Favors had a good game off the bench with 14 & 8, displaying some of that huge potential on a few plays where he finished at the rim.
Burks got seven minutes of non-garbage playing time during the second quarter, but didn’t really do anything.
The Jazz fall to 1-3 and will now come home to play the Hated Lakers (who are also 1-3) Wednesday night, in attempts to put their 0-3 road trip behind them.
Jazz player of the game: Gordon Hayward
