There are few wins more satisfying for the Utah Jazz than defeating the Hated Lakers on their own floor, and Sunday night the Jazz did it for the second-straight time.
Six Jazz players scored double figures, led by Millsap’s 24 & 9 with three steals. Mo finished with 22 & 9, 14 & 11 for Jefferson, and 14 & 6 for Kanter. Hayward had 14 and Carroll added 10. Utah shot 54 percent and outscored LAL 54-34 in the paint.
Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 34 points. Jordan Hill had 17 & 9 and Jodie Meeks scored 16. Chris Duhon chipped in with 12 & 11 while Dwight Howard went for 11 & 16.
The Lakers shot 56.3 percent from downtown, hitting 15-of-28, which kept this from becoming a blowout. Otherwise the Jazz would have won this one by 20+.
The fourth road win for the Jazz, and what do you know, we’re two games above .500.
Next up, the Jazz will return home with their 12-10 record to face the Spurs on Wednesday.
Jazz player of the game: Paul Millsap
