Utah Jazz Start Fight by Playing to the Buzzer Versus Houston Rockets

Joel C. Cordes@@bballJoelNBA Associate EditorMarch 18, 2014

The old cliche goes: "Good teams play until the final buzzer."

But what about those, like the Utah Jazz, who are down by 38 points with seven seconds left and choose to steal the clock-run-out dribble? Well, I guess losing by 36 is better than losing by 38. Rudy Gobert missed the layup anyway, so the whole endeavor was for nothing.

The Houston Rockets happened to be the good team in this scenario, and they beat the Jazz, 124-86, on Monday night.
