Utah Jazz basketball: Jazz not able to hold off Trail Blazers, fall in Portland 105-99
The Utah Jazz were able to cut Portland's lead to three when Randy Foye hit a 25-foot 3-pointer with 33 seconds remaining Saturday.
Looking for the steal, Marvin Williams jumped out in front of Portland center J.J. Hickson to tip the ball away — but was called for a foul. Hickson made both free throws and the Jazz were not able to put themselves in a position to win the basketball game.
After trading free throws in the final seconds, the Jazz eventually fell 105-99 in Portland. The game evens the 2012-13 series between the two teams at 1-1.
The Trail Blazers outrebounded Utah 49-37, bringing down 10 offensive boards. However, Portland struggled with turnovers and ended up coughing up the ball 16 times compared to just four by the Jazz.
Foye finished with 23 points for the Jazz and former Weber State basketball star Damian Lillard also had 23 points for Portland.
