Before the Jazz play the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, a few lingering thoughts from Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy following Utah’s win over the Magic on Thursday night:
“They (the Jazz) deserved to win after the first 18 minutes,” he said. “They just played a lot harder, a lot more energy and a lot more focus than we did. They dominated us, we didn’t run back, we didn’t move on offense.
“We played with no energy. They played very, very hard. They played very well and we played very poorly and when that happens in this league, particularly on the road, you’re going to get beat.”
