Seven weekend sports stories you probably missed
Editor's note: The Jazz were demolished by the recently resurgent L.A. Lakers, and they collapsed in the final minutes of Saturday's game, but thanks to clutch free-throw shooting and a monster overtime period by Al Jefferson, the Jazz came out ahead on Saturday night. Here are a few extras from that game.
Just 21 hours after losing in disappointing fashion, the Utah Jazz bounced back to earn a hard-fought victory over the Indiana Pacers. In a game that was full of dramatics, including an overtime period, the Jazz dug deep enough to come out on top, 114-110.
The Jazz coughed up a late eight-point lead on some bizarre plays in regulation, but redeemed themselves in the overtime to win on the second of a back-to-back game.
There was certainly not a dearth of stellar performances by both teams. For the Utah Jazz, their veteran front court pair of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap led the way. The duo combined to go 19 of 33 from the field, combining for 46 points. While their rebounding was subpar, the rest of their games were on target.
