Golden State Warriors had 14 straight wins until last night, a triumphant streak that broke Utah Jazz despite appearing at the Oracle Arena without Gordon Hayward. In the end, visitor victory by 99-105 to continue in fight with Los Angeles Clippers by the 4th position of the West.
They did not win the Jazz at the Oracle Arena since April 2013. That’s why the victory still tastes better.
It was a match matched from start to finish in which Steve Kerr did not have Klay Thompson from the beginning and reserved his best pieces in the final stretch. But this does not detract from the Jazz that are making an outstanding season.
George Hill led the visitors with 20 points, Joe Johnson was important from the second unit with 19 points and being decisive in the moments of truth and Rudy Gobert returned to show spectacular in boards with 17 points and 18 rebounds.
All this in a bad night in the shot of Dante Exum and in a good day of Shelvin Mack, who helped his really.
In Warriors, 28 points with 6 Stephen Curry triples and 33 minutes of action for the recovered Kevin Durant, who nailed his numbers of the previous game: 16 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Another gray performance by Draymond Green.
