SALT LAKE CITY – At the end of the fourth quarter against Atlanta, Jordan Clarkson scored 8 straight points to pull the Jazz closer.

Clarkson finished the game with 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Jazz struggled from three all night. They attempted 44 threes and only made 13. Jordan Clarkson was a part of that struggle, 3/10 on threes, but he made them when it mattered most.

Despite being down double-digits almost the entire game, the Jazz made it interesting at the end. Utah has done that all season, they rank 2nd in the league for points in the clutch.

The Jazz opened their five-game homestand with wins over the Dallas Mavericks and the Toronto Raptors as they battle to stay competitive in the crowded Western Conference Playoff race.

The Hawks meanwhile are on the front end of a back-to-back with the Jazz and Denver Nuggets over the weekend.

Jazz Look To Link Together Win Streak

Once again the Jazz will look for their elusive third straight win after having failed to do so in their last six attempts.

The Jazz last won three straight between November 6-9 when they opened the season with a surprising 10-3.

After Lauri Markkanen was named to the Western Conference All-Star game Wednesday, the Jazz have significant momentum as they head into the trade deadline and All-Star break.

The team is 7-3 in their last 10 games and is tied with the Phoenix Suns for the seventh-best record in the West.

Murray Shining For All-Star Devoid Hawks

The Hawks roll into Utah for their third game of a five-game road trip.

Atlanta opened their trip with a narrow loss to the Portland Trail Blazers but bounced back with a blowout 132-100 win over the Phoenix Suns.

While Trae Young was skipped over in Wednesday’s All-Star announcement, backcourt teammate Dejounte Murray has been playing at an All-Star level over the last 11 games.

Murray is averaging 25.0 points, 5.9 points, and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 53 percent from the floor and 45 percent from three.

The Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks will tip off at 7 pm MT in Salt Lake City. The game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet and can be heard on 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone. It can also be streamed on DirecTV Stream and FuboTV.
