'What happened?' Warriors lose a four-factor lead with 13.9 seconds left against Jazz

Simone Fontecchio dipped 1.4 seconds in the final on a Nickeil Alexander-Walker steal 

and the Utah Jazz beat the Golden Country Warriors 124-123 on Wednesday in a breathless finale.

The Soldiers led 113-109 with 13.3 seconds remaining after a Jordan Poole free throw.

 But Malik Beasley, who scored 18 points for Utah, hit a 3-pointer with 7.8 seconds left.

 Alexander-Walker then stripped the ball from Poole, Beasley picked up the loose ball and lobbed it to Fontecchio running to the basket.

“I couldn't imagine something like that. Just an extraordinary feeling

just satisfied and excited by the way they gave us there,” said Fontecchio, a rookie from Italy who will turn 27 on Friday.

 He finished with a career-high 18+ points and made four 3-tracks.
