Everything you need to know about Utah’s 107-95 win over the Celtics in quickie form.


Second quarter disaster: The Celtics looked to be carrying over some offensive momentum from Wednesday’s win over the Nuggets early but things changed quickly in the second quarter. The hosts came out ice cold in the frame, missing 18 consecutive shots at one point when combined with the final few minutes of the first quarter. When the damage was done, the Jazz nearly doubled up the C’s with a 25-13 tally and the C’s were unable to fully recover from shooting an ugly 19 percent (4-of-21) in the frame over the rest of the night.

Supporting cast letdown: Kyrie Irving (game-high 33 points) and Al Horford (21 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists) came to play. The rest of the Celtics supporting cast? Not so much.
