NBA results: Warriors beat Jazz after late comeback

Against all odds, the Golden State Warriors The winning streak is mounting. Who needs steph curryKlay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins, when you have Jordan Paul, Ty Jerome, and Patrick Baldwin Jr.?

The Dubs won their third straight game on Wednesday night, overcoming a 12-point deficit to beat the Dubs Utah Jazz 112-107.

It took them a while to get there, trailing by 10 points after the first quarter, in part due to only shooting 3-for-12 from three-point range while allowing the Jazz to shoot 7-for-14.

The second quarter proved better, and a bench combo—including good minutes from Baldwin—leaded to a tie near the end of the half. But the Jazz finished second on a 5-0 run, and led 59-54 at the break.

The Dubs and Jazz went back and forth in the third quarter, but Golden State finally broke through to start the fourth quarter. Back-to-back triples by Baldwin and Paul tied the game, forcing Utah to call timeout. The Draymond Green three gave the Warriors their first lead since early in the first quarter, and suddenly Chase Center was teetering.

Then the crime happened. The Dubs went several minutes without scoring, before finding their attacking foot around the halfway mark of the final frame. Threes by Ty Jerome and Donte DiVincenzo made it 10-0, giving the Warriors a six-point lead.

The situation was tense from there on, but the Warriors got to work late. Jordan Paul took care of the ball, while he and Divincenzo made important free throws. They got involved on defense, getting an assist when Kelly Olynyk missed a shot on the goal line.

And that was good enough for a third straight win, giving Golden State their winning record since Curry went down with an injury.

Paul led the way with 26 points, although he only shot 7-for-22. DiVincenzo was electric on both sides of the court, finishing with 19 points on 5-for-11 shooting, with excellent defense. Jerome was amazing, scoring 17 points and grabbing 7 rebounds. And Baldwin was nothing short of a difference maker, tallying 11 points, 4 rebounds and a game-high +13 in his best game as a pro.

The Dubs are drawn to 18-18 on the year, and they’ll be looking for their first four-game winning streak of the season when they host Portland Trail Blazers Friday.
