Hawks Vs. Jazz Final Score: Atlanta Wins 133-139 Over Utah In Quadruple Overtime

The Atlanta Hawks were playing their third game in as many nights and ended up playing some extra basketball as the game went to four overtimes against the Utah Jazz. The Hawks ended up winning 139-133.

The game went to overtime with an Al Jefferson layup with 1:14 left as neither team could score on the few chances they had in regulation. The first overtime period was a wasteland of offense as each team scored only two points with the Hawks going 1-of-8 with the Jazz making 1-of-5 shots.

The second and third overtimes saw the two teams back to actually scoring baskets, and then it was in the fourth overtime when the Hawks started to pull away. The Hawks started the fourth quarter on an 8-2 run en route to beating the Jazz.

Joe Johnson led the Hawks in scoring with 37 points and Zaza Pachulia scored 15 points and grabbed 20 rebounds.
