NBA top plays: Tinsley's still got game
You can't stop Jamaal Tinsley. You can only hope to contain him.
The 34-year-old veteran point guard was No. 1 in the NBA's top 10 plays last night after going five-hole against Nazr Mohammed.
With the Jazz leading Oklahoma City 78-72 in the fourth, Tinsley dribbled through Mohammed's legs and pulled up from just inside the elbow, draining the short jumper.
Tinsley finished with 11 points and three assists, and Utah topped the Thunder, 97-90.
With the win, the Jazz improved to 24-22, just 1/2 game behind the Rockets for eighth in the West.
