NEW YORK -- Five times, the Utah Jazz took the court as the visiting team and each time it resulted in a loss.
Various reasons have contributed as to why Utah remains the only winless road team in the NBA, including being unable to build on a 12-point lead Wednesday in New York.
The Jazz attempt to get their first road win of the season Friday night when their four-game trip continues with a meeting against the Brooklyn Nets.
Two of Utah's road losses are by five points or less and following Wednesday's 106-101 setback to the Knicks, the regrets were abundant along with the optimism about breaking through away from home.
"We played hard and sometimes it doesn't equal up to wins, but we can build off this one," Rodney Hood said after scoring 30 points Wednesday. "This one kind of hurt a little bit but I feel like this is one of the better games we've played in a while as far as defensively (and) offensively but now we've got to put it together for 48 minutes."
On Wednesday, the Jazz held their second 12-point lead (75-63) with 5:08 remaining in the third quarter. Then they allowed the Knicks to outscore them 43-26 the rest of the way. >> Read more
