SALT LAKE CITY – Kelly Olynyk scored 13 third quarter points as the Utah Jazz erased a 17-point Golden State Warriors lead.

The Jazz trailed big in the first half but opened the third quarter on a 20-11 run to take the lead fueled by Olynyk.

The veteran center knocked down 5-7 field goal attempts in the quarter including 3-4 from the three-point line.

Despite Olynyk’s strong play the Jazz quickly surrendered their one-point third quarter lead allowing the Warriors to start a 19-8 run to rebuild a double-digit gap.

The Jazz trailed 97-86 going into the fourth quarter.

Jazz Out Of Rhythm Without Conley

Mike Conley is out of the lineup against the Warriors, missing his third straight game with a left knee strain suffered against the Portland Trail Blazers last Saturday.

The Jazz were able to survive the Trail Blazers in the fourth quarter in a 118-113 win, but have gone winless in their last two outings without the veteran guard.

The matchup with Golden State is the first of a two-game road trip before the Jazz return home where they will play eight of their next nine games.

After facing the Warriors on Friday night the Jazz will have a quick turnaround in Phoenix when they travel to play the Suns on Saturday.

The Jazz are 6-6 on the road this season and 12-8 overall, good for fourth place in the Western Conference standings.

Warriors Battle With Inconsistency

The Warriors have been one of the NBA’s more mercurial teams this season fresh off their fourth NBA title in the last eight seasons.

Golden State has struggled terribly on the road winning just one of their 10 contests away from home.

However, they’re nearly unbeatable at the Chase Center where they’ve gone 8-1 to open the season, and have won seven straight at home including Wednesday’s 124-107 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
