Fishing for what would have been a momentum-building victory, the Jazz let a big one get away Friday night at EnergySolutions Arena.
Utah squandered an 81-77 lead in the final 4:58, when ex-Jazz All-Star Carlos Boozer scored 11 points.
The Jazz had a three-game winning streak snapped, mostly because they could not stop Boozer and failed to make Chicago pay for surrounding Al Jefferson on defense.
Jefferson finished with a season-high 32 points, including eight straight early in the fourth quarter.
Once the Bulls decided to double- and triple-team Jefferson, however, the Jazz offense died.
