On a Roll

The Utah Jazz had one of the longest winning streaks in franchise history. They won a record, ten straight games. These games weren't all easy. But with a lot of help from their bench players, it was made possible. Many bench players, such as Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and Matt Harpring gave it there all in many wins. In one game the Jazz were down, and Deron Williams, drained a three with only seventeen seconds left in regulation. In overtime, Kyle Korver sealed the win with two clutch free throws. Then things started to go downhill. The Jazz went into Sacramento with the highest win streak in the league. At the end of the third, the game was still in reach, but the Kings made their first seven points from the free throw line. This put them ahead for good, and the Jazz lost by thirteen. The next day, the Jazz came back to Utah to face the Chicago Bulls. This was a very boring game, but the Jazz came away with the win 97-87. The Jazz have one more game before the all-star break, and are in the lead in the northwest division. Can the Jazz continue this success in the second half of the season? Watch, and find out.
