Watson scores 38, short-handed Warriors beat JazzPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: The Warriors—all seven of them—beat the Jazz 118-108 on Saturday night, keeping Utah mired in eighth place in the Western Conference with only two games remaining in the regular season. “We want to play loose and play fast. That’s what we’ve been doing,” said C.J. Watson, who scored a career-high 38 points to lead the Warriors. Watson also had nine assists for the second straight night and pulled down seven rebounds as Golden State stunned Utah at the start and never let up when the Jazz tried to rally… Deron Williams had 26 points and 14 assists before leaving in the final minute, holding his ribs with a strained muscle in his side. Carlos Boozer added 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, in danger of drawing the Lakers in the first round… Kelenna Azubuike scored 18, Anthony Morrow added 13 points and Anthony Randolph 11 for Golden State.
