The Jazz get their third road win of the season after beating the Hornets in front of the New Orleans crowd (if you want to call it a “crowd”).
Jefferson finished with 19 & 7, and both Millsap and Marvin each scored 16 on just seven field goal attempts, as the Jazz led comfortably for pretty much the entire second half, coasting to a 12-point victory.
Millsap also had eight boards and four assists. He and Hayward both shook off slumps tonight, as Gordon scored 15. Favors was great off the bench, finishing with 9 & 8, but played just 17 minutes. Neither Tinsley nor Watson scored a single point (going a 0-1 between the two of them), but they combined for 13 assists and four steals.
Grievis Vasquez and Robin Lopez each scored 18 to lead New Orleans, with Vasquez dishing out eight dimes and Lopez grabbing seven rebounds. Ryan Anderson, the stretch four who has killed the Jazz from beyond the arc in recent contests, posted just 7 & 8 on the night, hitting only 1-of-6 from 3-point range.
Marvin Williams lost his footing on one play, causing him to fall and hit his head. Initial word said he may have a concussion, meaning he could miss some time.
The Jazz improve to 3-7 on the road and 9-7 overall, with two more games remaining on this 3-game road trip. They will head to Oklahoma City on Friday and then Houston the following night.
Jazz player of the game: Paul Millsap
