Posted by: TACOREV on January 30th, 2013The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz hold on to beat the Pelicans (15-31, 8-16 away) to bounce back from Monday’s humiliation.
Millsap led the way with 25 & 10, Jefferson scored 22, and Favors contributed 15 & 6 off the bench. Marvin added 11 & 7, while Foye finished with 14 points and eight assists.
Greivis Vasquez led New Orleans with 17 & 13, while Ryan Andersen had 16 & 6, Robin Lopez 15 & 9, and the rookie Anthony Davis with 14 & 7.
I liked the way Foye was distributing the ball, further affirming my view that Watson should never leave the bench, and Tinsley should play only minimal minutes. Foye and Burks aren’t prototypical point guards, but both are better than the crap Tinsley and Watson put on the floor. And both actually need to be guarded on the offensive end — Tinsley and Watson combined for three points in 44 minutes!
Kanter played five minutes. I’m sure everyone already knows my thoughts on this matter.
Jefferson’s 22 points came on 18 shots. Millsap was extremely efficient, on the other hand, scoring 25 on 12 shots. He was agressive in the second half, getting to the line 16 times. Burks also showed his knack for getting to the line late in the game.
The Jazz improve to 25-21, 16-5 at home, and will host Portland Friday night in part one of a home-and-home back-to-back with the Blazers.
Jazz player of the game: Paul Millsap
