Jefferson Tip-In Lifts Jazz Over Kings
(KUTV) An Al Jefferson tip-in with 0.9 seconds remaining in the game,
lifted the Utah Jazz to a 103-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings
Jefferson also had a game-high 26 points, as the
Jazz won their fifth-straight game to improve to 25-22 on the season.
Utah is now a half game behind the Houston Rockets for eighth-place in
the Western Conference.
The Jazz grabbed a 58-48 halftime lead,
but nearly blew a 14-point third quarter lead as the Kings got back into
the game thanks in large part by the 22 point effort from DeMarcus
Cousins and 25 points from guard Tyreke Evans.
The Jazz return home to play the Denver Nuggets tonight and tip-off is set for 8:30pm.
