Foul Trouble

Last night in Utah the Jazz fell to the LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The odd thing is that Utah did not trail once through the first three quarters. So your probably wondering what happened?

Well I am sure head coach Jerry Sloan can tell you...
"We ended up committing enough fouls for two or three games and they were basically soft fouls. If you're going to commit soft fouls and play soft, you're going to get more scared and put yourself in a tough situation."

The Jazz committed 33 fouls which lead to 27 points off free throws by Cleveland. I am sure Cleveland or LeBron didn't mind.

Game Notes:
Matt Harpring had 10 rebounds and nine points
Gordan Giricek had 12 points
Mehmet Okur also scored 12

Jazzed dropped by Houston

Apparently it took a season high 22 fast-break points by the Rockets; along side a 25 point effort by Tracy McGrady to stop the Jazz.
"That's the kind of basketball I like to play, to get out and run on transition and forget about plays," McGrady said. "We're a faster team now. We're not so much walking the ball up the floor. We're pushing the ball.

The final score was Houston 99, Jazz 80.
