Wednesday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco, the short-handed Golden State Warriors failed to answer in the second leg of their back-to-back game against the Utah Jazz.
In the first half, the Jazz surged to a double-digit lead. However, the Warriors slowly began to chip away at their Jazz advantage. Before halftime, Utah’s lead was cut to five points. Still, it wasn’t until the fourth quarter that the Warriors tied the game with the Jazz.
Without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins, players like Patrick Baldwin Jr. and Ty Jerome began their path to a Golden State comeback.
Along with hitting some clutch shots, Jerome shot 7-of-14 from the field for 17 points off the bench and completed two triples. Baldwin Jr. made his three 3-pointers in his 13 minutes off the bench, adding 11 points.
Golden State’s defense dominated in the final stretch as each team traded tough possessions in the fourth quarter. Draymond Green came up with a pair of late his blocks to help the Warriors maintain their lead in the final minutes.
Jordan Poole led the team with 26 points on 7/22 shooting from the floor as the Warriors were able to complete a 112-107 comeback for their third straight win at home.
