Both the Warriors and Jazz are on the second game of a back to back, and it showed early as the Jazz take a 23-20 lead. All 5 starters for the Jazz scored in the first quarter, led by Paul Milsap who came out firing scoring 10 early points. David Lee countered for Golden State with 7 points and 2 rebounds.
A lot of missed shots for the Warriors as they only shoot 39% from the field, 25% from 3 point range. Deron Williams seemed to reinjure his wrist which called for some medical attention. He still managed to put up 4 points with 4 assits. Monta Ellis was attacking the rim early, scoring 6 while Stephen Curry missed both his 3 pointers and ended the quarter scoreless. Jazz end the quarter shooting 53%.
