VIDEO: The Crazy Sequence That Ended The Jazz's Season

Against all odds, the Utah Jazz embarked on a furious rally in an attempt to keep their season alive in the fourth quarter of Game 4 of their 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs. Down 21 points with just over six minutes left, the Jazz went on a 19-2 run, cutting the Spurs' lead to four with 49 seconds left. What followed was a particularly depressing way to end a run.

Here's video of the whole sequence.


First, the Jazz play awful defense, but catch a huuuuuuuugge break when Tony Parker's wide-open layup somehow doesn't fall. Then, the Jazz race the ball back up the court and have an opening for a Devin Harris three-pointer. The problem? Paul Millsap's pass is deflected away, and Manu Ginobili escapes with an uncontested layup to seal the series.

The Jazz have nothing to be ashamed of for their season. That ending just really hurts.
