Utah Jazz basketball: Jazz sneak away with comeback win on the road in Brooklyn
BROOKLYN, New York — After trailing by 13 points at haltime, the Jazz clawed their way back into the game and had a two-point lead with the ball with just seconds remaining.
Then Utah lost the ball off a sloppy inbounds pass.
The Nets charged down the court, and Gerald Wallace shot a three-pointer to pull ahead, but it bounced off the edge of the rim. Reggie Evans pulled down the offensive board and fired what seemed to be a game-tying shot as the game clock expired.
The shot missed and the Utah Jazz came away with a narrow 92-90 win in their first contest of a four-game road trip.
The Jazz were led by point guard Mo Williams with 19 points and center Al Jefferson with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Whitney O'Bannon is currently a new media sports intern for the Deseret News.
