Jazz Done Over Time

In a lockout compressed season where four games in a week is the norm, uttering the word overtime can draw harsh looks. Knowing this it shouldn’t have come as a surprise how exasperated both the Hawks and Jazz appeared when the Sunday matinee finally ended after four of them.

Utah, at least statistically, did everything right except the most important thing –win the game. Whether it was points in the paint, fast break points, or second chance points the Jazz more than dominated the action. Points on the other hand belonged to the Hawks. Atlanta’s bench outscored the Jazz bench 6-0 in the fourth and final overtime period. Joe Johnson led all scorers with 37 points including 8 in the final overtime period.

After the first overtime produced a frighteningly low total of 4 points from both teams, how long this game was going to take was the elephant in the arena. Al Jefferson and Paul Milsap led the charge for Utah each notching double-doubles in the process.

Down the stretch the 15 point hole Utah had to dig themselves out of weighed heavy on the pair. Jefferson got an early rest after picking up his 6th foul with a little more than a minute into the final period. Milsap scored 2 points before picking up his 6th foul a minute later joining Jefferson on the bench. Apparently C.J. Miles didn't get the memo. He waited until the 14 second mark to pick up his 6th foul.

How much wear and tear the Jazz suffered from the extended action will show Monday night when they travel to New Jersey to face the Nets.
