Utah Jazz: Finally Flaming Out

Select quotes from the game: 
The Magic built a 13-2 lead and never allowed the Jazz closer than nine points for the rest of the game. Utah dropped its third straight to close a five-game, eight-day Eastern swing.

The Magic led by as many as 20 midway in the second quarter and were ahead 57-43 at the half.The game could have been more lopsided, but the Magic struggled at the free throw line, making only 14 of 28 attempts.

Another factor is that the Celtics lost earlier in the day, giving the Magic the added incentive of closing to a tie wth Boston for the 2 seed.  

I wrote about the Jazz earlier as they were in a ten game winning streak, playing hard and then went to Toronto and had to deal with the time zone difference PLUS they had daylight savings.  

Finally it looks like they ran out of gas at the end of a road trip.  

Predictable? I think so.
