UTAH (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Pistons collapse in the fourth quarter losing to the Utah Jazz 105 -90 on Monday night.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Pistons and the Jazz traded leads throughout the game – but Utah broke it open in the final minutes of the game to take a lead they’d never give up.
Rodney Stuckey scored 29 points for the Pistons, who have not won in Salt Lake City since 2002 -losing their last nine visits here.
Al Jefferson scored 33 points just 24 hours after his grandmother’s death and C.J. Miles added 15 points, including three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, to help the Jazz end a two-game skid and snap Detroit’s three-game winning streak.
The win ended a drama-filled day for the Jazz that started with a closed-door meeting between guard Raja Bell and team brass.
It came two days after Bell was sent home from a road trip following a verbal clash with coach Tyrone Corbin, but both sides proclaimed the matter closed. Bell started, but had just one point.
