Jazz report card--Deseret News

GUARDS: It wasn't a memorable night for Devin Harris, who had eight points and four assists. He was severely outplayed by Chris Paul, who usually outplays whoever is up against him, but still. Gordon Hayward started again at shooting guard, and played his heart out. He responded well to the tough-guy antics of Mo Williams and Blake Griffin. Paul just destroyed the Jazz though, and that factors into the grade.

Grade: D

NBA: Chris Paul guides Clippers to rare victory in Utah, 107-105--Deseret News

But Los Angeles wasn’t interested in playing defense, either. Seven of the Jazz’s first 15 points came via the fast break, a slam by Gordon Hayward gave Utah an early four-point lead, and the Clippers responded with a hastily called timeout.

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin even put lengthy Gordon Hayward on Paul at the end of the game to no avail.

"He did a lot for their team," Hayward said.

Added Miles: "He made tough shots. G-Time's 6-8, and he shot over (Hayward) a couple of times and he made a couple of good plays on the other guys too.."

Wizards vs. Magic: Washington battles, but comes up short in Orlando, 109-103--Washington Post

The Wizards (4-18) remained competitive as Shelvin Mack scored a career-high 12 points, Kevin Seraphin matched his career high with 12 points and Jordan Crawford scored 19 points off the bench. That trio, along with fellow reserve Trevor Booker, scored all the Wizards’ points during a 22-5 first-half run that turned an 11-point deficit into a six-point lead. Seraphin soared for an emphatic putback dunk that put the Wizards ahead, 36-30, and the home fans began to boo the Magic.
