Cleveland
Utah

[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the Cleveland Cavaliers last night and the Jazz did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 100-92 victory. The win bumps Utah's record up to 24-16 on the season, while the loss drags Cleveland's down to 28-9. Though a win's a win and Jazz fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was LeBron James leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 29 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 4 steals in 36 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for James, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Jazz. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Cleveland back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Jazz in the victory was Gordon Hayward and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than James, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Hayward posted 28 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.

Utah's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Cavaliers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Jazz will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the Detroit Pistons while the visiting Cavaliers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.
