Utah Jazz Getting Inside 2009-01-11

Utah Jazz Getting Inside 2009-01-11
Whether it's a product of the schedule or simply stronger play, the Jazz have reasserted their dominance at EnergySolutions Arena.

With a victory over Indiana on Monday, the Jazz could close out a 4-0 homestand in which they have beaten Golden State, New Orleans and Detroit. The Jazz dropped four of their first 14 home games this season, equaling their entire total from the 2007-08 season.

They have won even with Deron Williams battling a respiratory infection that has limited his effectiveness. Williams stayed home sick from practice Friday and had only seven points and nine assists Saturday against Detroit while shooting 3 of 12.

The Jazz's current three-game winning streak is their first since opening the season. Any enthusiasm, however, is tempered by the fact that the team might simply be taking advantage of a favorable stretch of schedule.

Indiana will be the Jazz's third straight opponent to arrive in Utah for the second game of a back-to-back set. The Jazz drilled New Orleans by 26 and Detroit by 17 in the previous two games under those circumstances.

JAZZ 99, PISTONS 82: The Jazz jumped out to a 14-2 lead and never looked back in beating Detroit for an eighth consecutive time. It was the Jazz's fourth season sweep of the Pistons in as many seasons. Mehmet Okur scored 15 of his game-high 22 points in the first quarter and the Jazz led by as many as 25. Detroit was making the final stop on a four-game trip and coming off a victory in Denver.
