Utah’s bench shines as Jazz outlast Celtics

USA Today


Article Summary:

Following a dominant 27-point victory on Sunday against the Houston Rockets, the Boston Celtics came into Tuesday night’s game looking to build on that impressive performance at home against the league’s best record, the Utah Jazz. Despite a late game run to steal the game, the Celtics fell short to the Jazz, 117-109.

A clutch 3-pointer from Donovan Mitchell and countless clutch free throws from the Jazz were too much for the Celtics down the stretch. The Celtics jumped to an 11-point lead in the first quarter, but the Jazz swiftly cut into the deficit and ultimately took the lead into halftime, sparked by Jordan Clarkson and Joe Ingles off the bench.

The Celtics will look to get back into the win column in a quick turnaround Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7 p.m.
