Jazz grab road win, move into top spot

It took almost four months and 52 games, but the Utah Jazz did what they'd been waiting all season to accomplish. After stuggling through some atrocious early shooting, the Jazz claimed a 109-104 win over the Golden State Warriors — Utah's first road victory over a winning team this year.

The win also moved Utah into sole possession of first in the Midwest Division.

"We have struggled on the road very badly," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "This was probably one of our better games we've played on the road. We need to play well on the road, and this was a good start for us. ... We were down by nine and it was a good time for us to fold up, but we just hung in there."
