Utah Jazz blow 16-point second-half lead in loss to Memphis Grizzlies

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

After leading by double digits for most of the game, the Utah Jazz closed on the wrong end of a 14-3 run to lose 91-87 at home to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Despite a strong performance from Derrick Favors, who tallied 22 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks, the Grizzlies' Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol sealed the win for Memphis, who made up a 16-point second-half deficit.

The Jazz led by 10 at halftime due to great defensive play from Favors and Enes Kanter and solid distribution from Trey Burke, who finished with 11 points and 10 assists for his sixth double-double of the season.

Only eight Jazz players saw court time as Gordon Hayward played 45 minutes and Kanter played 40, just two under his season high. Kanter finished with 11 points and 15 rebounds.
