Two Takeaways: Utah Unravels in Overtime

December 13th, 2015 | by Aaron Hefner
Tonight featured another late game letdown where the Jazz lost in overtime after leading by 16 points earlier in the evening. At one point, it looked like OKC was going to run away with it after roaring back in the third quarter...
