HOUSTON -- Sustainable success in the NBA can be capricious, with unforeseen injuries capable of destroying momentum as quickly as a string of impressive victories can foster it.

On Dec. 5, the Utah Jazz played at Oklahoma City in the second game of a back-to-back set. At the time, the Jazz were riding a six-game winning streak and garnering modest attention as a surprise challenger in the Western Conference.

On Friday night in Boston, the Jazz added two more bodies to a bloated injury list, and the following evening, they lost for the fifth time in six games, falling to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
