Jazz guard Rodney Hood swats phone out of fan's hand after ejection


The Jazz were able to get a 107-104 win over the Wizards after they scored 27 points off 23 turnovers.

John Wall is the top fantasy basketball player for the Wizards with a season average of 41.19 fantasy points per game.

Both teams will come in well-rested as Washington's last game was on Saturday and Utah's last game was on Sunday, so it will fun to see a couple of fresh teams do battle on the hardwood.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards had every reason to take the Jazz seriously after they were routed by 47 points in Utah last month.

"We know on offense you can make or miss shots but on defense you've got to make stops at the end", Rubio said, "and I think we did it tonight and that's why we got the win".

A 3-pointer by Wall and a 3-pointer by Kelly Oubre Jr. capped an 8-0 run and the Wizards led 99-98 with 2:31 left in the game.

Joe Ingles responded with a 3-pointer that put Utah ahead 104-102 with 1:09 remaining. This time, Utah proved to be another tough matchup and swept the season series with Washington, which fell to 0-2 at the start of a five-game homestand.

Ricky Rubio led the way for Utah with 21 points, while Donovan Mitchell and Ekpe Udoh had 16 points each.

Jazz: Ingles had 10 points.

When Jazz guard Rodney Hood was ejected from Wednesdays game, he put a stop to a fan trying to record the moment when he smacked a cell phone out of the fan's hand on his walk back to the locker room. The team handed out All-Star Game promotional boxes with images of Wall and Beal on the front.

However, considering how poorly the Jazz have played on the road and how formidable the Washington Wizards have looked of late after winning seven of their last ten including big wins over the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets, tonight's contest certainly figures to be more of a challenge.
