SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz were trailing by 18 points in the fourth quarter to the Golden State Warriors but Jordan Clarkson didn’t give up.

The game was looking like it was getting out of reach before Jordan Clarkson caught fire and bring the Jazz back into the game against the Warriors. Clarkson had a big fourth quarter, scoring 24 of Utah’s 41 points. He shot 8-of-13 from the field and 4-for-7 from the three-point line. His 90-game three-point streak was on the line after missing his first eight attempts from beyond the arc.

The Jazz sixth man was a huge part of their 12-0 run late in the fourth that gave the Jazz the lead in the final minute. Unfortunately, Steph Curry hit a three-pointer and free throws to put the Jazz away.

In the first quarter, Clarkson scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. He followed that up with 10 points in the second quarter but was 5-of-13 from the floor and 0-of-5 from downtown.

After scoring 12 points on 6-of-17 shooting and 0-for-7 from beyond the arc in the first half, Clarkson dropped just five points in the third quarter with a three-pointer and a field goal.

The Jazz dropped their record to 50-19 on the season. They will play their final home game of the regular season on Wednesday, May 12 against the Portland Trail Blazers. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. MDT and will be televised on ESPN and AT&T SportsNet.
