They may have had some poor stretches, but the Utah Jazz had more promising stretches during last night’s win in Cleveland. Here are three takeaways from the win.
Boy, I sure did miss that winning feeling for the Utah Jazz after the All-Star break. Four straight losses had fans on the edge, but the Jazz have won two in a row, which is a positive development, even if those wins came against lottery-bound teams in Washington and Cleveland.
Hey, a win is a win, right? I’ll take it.
While the Jazz do still have plenty to prove, they have had some good moments during this mini two-game winning streak. We’ll be looking at three takeaways from last night’s victory over Cleveland. You can find three takeaways from Friday’s win over Washington here.
Some bad comes with the good, though. The Jazz didn’t get this win in wire-to-wire fashion. The Cavaliers certainly gave them a fight, especially in the first half. Utah did what they had to do and closed them out when it mattered most.
The Jazz went through some cold, scoreless stretches and also went through some blistering hot stretches. That’s kind of how this team has been all season long.
In the end, the Jazz came away with the 126-113 win over the Cavaliers. Utah is now 38-22 on the season with 22 games left to play in the regular season.
It was a good start to a four-game road trip. The Jazz will next find themselves in New York, Boston and Detroit to close out the trip before returning home to host Toronto. Sweeping this road trip would be great, but going 3-1 is more likely.
Anyway, let’s get started and take a look at three takeaways from the Utah Jazz’s hot and cold win in Cleveland last night.
