Game 5, 1-3 Cats beat 2-4 Jazz

Game 5, 1-3 Cats beat 2-4 Jazz
The Bobcats thought this game would a walk in the park as they jumped out to a 6-2 lead in the first quarter. That was before the Jazz went on a 6-0 run to take a 10-6 lead. The Bobcats got their act together and the game was tied at the end of the first. At 3:48 in the third (I play 5 minute quarters) the game was tied at 14. The Bobcats hit three threes and a two pointer in an 11 point run over the next 1:30. The Jazz did put an 8-0 run together over the next 1:09 after the Bobcats got sloppy. The Bobcats scored the next five points to end the quarter to take a 30-22 lead into halftime. The Bobcats thoroughly dominated the Jazz in the third quarter to the tune of 13-4 with their reserves on the floor during the last few minutes. The Jazz put up a valiant effort in the fourth quarter as they tried to come back late. It was all for naught as the Bobcats still beat them in the fourth by 14-9 to win the game 57-37. With the game so far out of reach the most of the second half was primarily played by reserves. As a result every player for the Bobcats scored!

Odd stat. Devin Harris had as many turnovers as a points and assists combined!
