Wednesday night, Jazz fans on Twitter knew the game was far from over despite their team having a 22-point lead over Washington in the first half.

They buckled in for a long, stressful night, and the Utah Jazz did not disappoint.

The Jazz allowed Washington to get on a roll early in the fourth quarter and saw their lead disintegrate to just two points down the stretch.

Jazz fans attributed the win to clutch play by Gordon Hayward and Paul Millsap in the final minutes.
