New York Knicks vs. Utah Jazz: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
The New York Knicks pulled off quite an impressive road win against a Utah Jazz team that was previously 24-8 at home.
It wasn't pretty, but the Knicks, led by J.R. Smith's 20 points on 5-of-13 shooting, beat the Jazz 91-83.
The shocking part for the Jazz was that they put up just 22 of their 83 points in the paint, even with Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire out for the Knicks.
Turnovers were the name of the game for the Knicks, as the veteran-led team 17 turnovers and held the Jazz to just 38.2 percent shooting from the floor.
What the Jazz may not have known is that the L.A. Lakers got blown out at Phoenix, which means the Jazz had a chance to jump back into the playoff picture out West.
Instead, the Knicks seized their opportunity to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even without Carmelo Anthony on the floor.
It was an impressive win for the Knicks and an awful, awful loss for the Jazz.

For some reason, the Jazz continue to get Mo Williams—4-of-13 from the field—the ball in "clutch-time" moments.
Knicks 89, Jazz 81—23.0 remaining in the 4th quarter
The Knicks have simply out-classed the Jazz tonight, which is amazing considering the Jazz are 24-8 at home.
Knicks 87, Jazz 81—30.3 remaining in the 4th quarter
Kurt Thomas might be a million years old in basketball years, but he's a force that Al Jefferson just can't move. Impressive stuff by the Thomas—especially considering he's played 26 minutes on a banged up foot.

The 5 Knicks on the court right now look like a good open gym squad at 135th st Y— Jacob Saylor (@jacobsaylor) March 19, 2013
Kurt Thomas listened to Mike Woodson's advice coming out of their last timeout. He said "You've got to role, keep rolling."
Thomas just got the 1st layup in the past few years for him.

The Knicks are immune to the Utah crowd noise, as they have taken out their hearing aids.— John Krolik (@JohnKrolik) March 19, 2013
Where has Al Jefferson been all night long? He's got 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting.

Players Knicks could have had w/9th pick in 2010: Hayward, Paul George, Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson, Larry Sanders, Avery Bradley— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) March 19, 2013
There have been an awful lot of no calls tonight by the refs, mainly against the Jazz. Interestingly, the refs seem to be minimizing the Jazz's size advantage with letting the teams play.
Knicks 75, Jazz 69—7:40 remaining in the 4th quarter
Alec Burks knocks down a big three-ball to cut the Knicks' lead to just three. Follows it up with a mid-range jumper. Next possession will certainly be a "heat check" for Burks.
Knicks 72, Jazz 69—8:28 remaining in the 4th quarter
If I was a Jazz fan, I'd be putting a brown bag over my head right now. Kurt Thomas just sunk an 18-footer, and Derrick Favors can't remember how to shoot free-throws.

My exact thoughts ... How in the world are the Jazz a playoff team ...
As much as we kill the Eastern Conference the Jazz could make the playoffs and yet lose two games to the Knicks without Carmelo and Amar'e.— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) March 19, 2013
J.R. Smith with the alley-oop from Raymond Felton—8-0 run for the Knicks. It's like the Jazz have no idea that they are clearly the more talented team on the court.
There's a lack of urgency, a lack of intensity and terrible ball movement.
Knicks 62, Jazz 60—1:23 remaining in the 3rd quarter
The Knicks are on quite a run, led by smart ball movement, unselfish play and opportunistic offense.
Jazz 60, Knicks 60—2:20 remaining in the 3rd quarter
J.R. Smith has gotten to the line on back-to-back possessions. Rare, smart play by Smith since his jumper just isn't falling.
Jazz 60, Knicks 57—3:57 remaining in the 3rd quarter
I can't decide what's more shocking—J.R. Smith's 1-of-7 shooting, or the Jazz's 12 points in the paint.
Jazz 60, Knicks 54—4:15 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Gordon Hayward with a massive block on Kenyon Martin. Is rewarded on the other end by Al Jefferson with the behind-the-head pass.
Jazz 58, Knicks 52—5:18 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Gordon Hayward with his own 6-0 run, gives the Jazz the two-point lead.
Al Jefferson adds a put-back tip to extend the lead to four. It's like they just realized that the Knicks don't have any of their star players.
