Beating the San Antonio Spurs is tough. Beating the San Antonio Spurs in a close game, because of how well coached they are, is nearly impossible. And yet on Wednesday night, thanks to a clutch jumper from Mo Williams with 2.3 seconds remaining in the game, that’s exactly what the Utah Jazz did.
When it was all said and done, Utah picked up a 99-96 victory – their fourth straight.
Paul Millsap led the way for the winning side with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Al Jefferson had a strong offensive game, too, chipping in 20 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Williams finished with only nine points, but obviously his big bucket at the end proved to be the difference.
Meanwhile, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan led San Antonio with 22 points apiece. Only four Spurs players finished in double figures.
