But the 76ers went on a 29-10 run to finish the third quarter; with 38.3 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, the game was tied. According to Salt Lake Tribune, Utah shot just 4-of-21 during their fourth quarter implosion. Somehow, however, that effort was still enough to outscore the lowly 76ers — 17 to 13.
In the last three quarters of action, the Jazz managed to score just 16 baskets. Despite the early lead, Utah won by four.
"We’ll take them any way we can get them," said Utah’s Rodney Hood, via Salt Lake Tribune. "Regardless of by how much or how we do it, a win is a win. So we’ll feel good about it."
