Jazz smoking hot, beat the Mavs
The AP reports:
After three periods of lead changes and ties, the Utah Jazz put an end to the back-and-forth with the Dallas Mavericks with a smothering fourth quarter.
Utah outscored Dallas 27-16 and had twice as many rebounds in the final period while pulling away for a 104-92 win Monday night, extending the Jazz’s longest winning streak of the season to six.
“We just have everybody playing at a high level right now. We have a lot of confidence and we understand what it takes to win right now,” said Deron Williams, who had 18 points and 15 assists. “Hopefully we don’t get too confident and too cocky and just keep doing what we need to to win.”
