Jazz 105, Nets 84: New Jersey Sputters In Loss To Utah

The Utah Jazz were coming off a quadruple overtime loss just 24 hours prior and playing on the road. Monday night, they looked like the more energized team as the New Jersey Nets couldn't figure anything out on the offensive end. The Nets lost 105-84 for their eighth time in 10 games.

New Jersey shot just 35.8 percent from the floor and never led after a taking brief lead in the closing seconds of the first quarter. The Nets made just 29 field goals to 45 for the Jazz. New Jersey had a chance to make up the difference with free throw shooting, but made just 21 of 35 attempts while Utah went 16-for-18 from the charity stripe.

Deron Williams went just 7-for-21 from the floor on his way to 17 points. Gerald Green had a nice night to lead the team with 20 points, 12 of which came on 3-pointers, but his efforts weren't enough to fully pick up the slack elsewhere. Not including Green, the Nets went 1-for-13 from beyond the arc (1-for-7 for Williams).

The Jazz, meanwhile, shot 51.9 percent from the floor thanks to solid performances from their big men. Paul Millsap had 24 points on 10-for-14 shooting and 13 rebounds. Al Jefferson added 19 points on 9-for-14 from the floor and eight rebounds. Former Nets points guard Devin Harris picked up 11 assists, falling just one point shy of his second straight double-double.
