Utah rides improved defense into New York

As the regular season reaches the stretch drive, the Utah Jazz are attempting to secure a playoff spot, and their defense is clamping down on opponents.

The improved defense has the Jazz on a four-game winning streak and attempting to get another win Wednesday night when they visit the league-worst New York Knicks.

Utah (41-29) has held opponents to 100 or fewer points in each of the four games and in a season-best five straight games. During its third winning streak of at least four games, Utah is allowing 97.5 points, 41.5 percent shooting and 30.2 percent from 3-point range, leading to a 96.3 defensive rating.
