SALT LAKE CITY — It hasn't been a holly jolly holiday season for the Jazz.
Utah (12-16) snapped their three-game losing streak during a three-game week. The Jazz also suffered losses to the Warriors and the Clippers amid a slew of injuries, helping them lose four of their past six games.
The Jazz ran away from the Suns, 110-89, to snap a brief losing skid Monday behind 24 points from Gordon Hayward. The wide margin was a welcome relief for a team that has had to scrap, claw and fight for every inch in the young NBA season.
The Salt Lake team then ran into a buzzsaw named "Golden State" during the Warriors' impeccable home winning streak, suffering a 103-85 loss in Oakland.
Then things got worse as the Jazz lost starting forward Derrick Favors and shooting guard Alec Burks by the time the Clippers rolled into Vivint Arena to hand Utah a 109-104 loss.
