Jazz’s Poor Fourth Quarter Against Bucks Carries Over To First Quarter Vs. Orlando

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz went cold in the fourth quarter of their loss to Milwaukee and that coldness carried over to a miserable first quarter against Orlando.

After mustering just 16 points in the fourth quarter of the 114-102 loss to the Bucks on Monday, the Jazz managed just 19 points in the first on 33.3 percent shooting versus the Magic on Wednesday. They also attempted just five 3-pointers and made only two from downtown.

Donovan Mitchell had another poor quarter offensively and shot just 1-for-5 for two points in the period. He went 0-for-5 in the final quarter against Milwaukee and was held scoreless in the period.

Though the 19 points wasn’t a season low for points in the quarter – there was that nine point quarter in the 50-point loss to the Mavericks – the Jazz came dangerously close to setting a new season low. Though the first nine minutes of the quarter, the Jazz were held to just seven points and trailed by as much as 21.

The Jazz finally got it together and went on 12-4 run in the final two minutes of the quarter to bring the score to 32-19 at the end of the period.
