Jazz Late Run Overwhelms Wizards, 127-115: Winners & Losers


Last night at the Delta Center, the Utah Jazz beat the Washington Wizards 127–115. To say the least, this competition was exciting. We saw many turns and twists from both teams all night long.   

The Wizards took early control of the game and finally had a 14-point lead. Late in the fourth quarter, the Jazz took over and won by ten points or more.  

With a 9-52 record, the Wizards are the worst NBA team. They have lost 15 straight, don't use defensive measures, and are worst in the Eastern Conference.  

The Jazz have a record of 28–34 and are 5 games behind the Warriors for the last spot in the play-in playoffs.Let's take a look at who won and lost the race.  

In addition to putting on a show for his home crowd, Clarkson will remember this performance for many years to come.   

He scored 38 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, gave out seven assists, and had a game rating of +21, which is always a good sign.  

The Wizards couldn't put out the fire while Clarkson was in charge, especially in the second half. His 13th game of 30 or more points is the most in Jazz history, which also added his name to the team's records.  

Thurl Bailey earlier held the record. Clarkson deserved a game climate change after a month of struggle. He should carry momentum into the final 20 games.  

Coulibaly played 33 minutes, scored seven points, committed three fouls, and had a -19 rating. Coulibaly, a terrific defender, struggled yesterday night.   

Clarkson's stats and other Jazz players failed to notice his defensive presence and had success across the board. If he's a fantastic defender, I won't watch a bad one.   

Certain teams, like the Wizards, devalue the NBA brand and let their opponents win frequently. Stop reading media and work on your game, kid.  

John Collins had a good game. He scored 17 points, grabbed 15 boards, and blocked six shots, which is the most in his career. Collin Sexton scored 29 points and had a +18 game rating.   

even more proof that the Wizards are the worst team in the NBA.The next game for the Jazz is at home on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. MST against the Chicago Bulls.
