The Jazz hold on for a much-needed win over Memphis (44-21, 19-13 away).
Hayward started for the first time in a while and led the Jazz with 17 & 8, including a couple huge 3-pointers late in the game to keep Utah ahead. Jefferson scored 14 (on 16 shots), Millsap finished with 13 & 8, Mo put in 13 & 6, and Favors went for 10 & 6.
The Grizzlies were led by Jarryd Bayless’ 24 points and Zack “Eddie Winslow” Randolph’s 19 & 9. Mike Conley scored 13 and Marc Gasol added 11 & 6.
Great game from Hayward, as well as Favors. How about that play where Derrick took the ball at the 3-point line, crossed over, spun, and went all the way to the rack for the score? It was a thing of beauty. Seriously, that was like a Dwyane Wade-type move.
Memphis did its best “Utah Jazz third quarter” impression, as the Jazz won the period 24-9.
Only nine minutes for Burks, and 12 for Watson? Earl was getting absolutely destroyed by Bayless and was as worthless as ever.
Carroll goes from starting to getting DNP-ed tonight. Hmmm…
Memphis was playing its fourth road game in five nights, but still put up a good fight.
Good win for the Jazz, who now improve to 34-32, just a half game behind the Hated Lakers for the No. 8 spot in the West.
Up next, we have a chance to get back at the Knicks (38-25) when they come to town Monday night.
Jazz player of the game: Gordon Hayward
