Posted by: TACOREV on November 11th, 2012The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
Five Jazzmen score in double figures, led by Jefferson’s 27 points and 14 boards, bouncing back from a pathetic game at Denver. Millsap and Hayward each scored 18, Paul grabbing 13 rebounds. Marvin had 13 & 7 while Favors added 10 & 6, with three blocks off the bench.
Tinsley went 0-for-3 but dished out 14 assists, playing 41 minutes in lieu of the injured Mo Williams. Foye had an off night, going 0-for-7 and turning up a donut.
Luis Scola led the Suns with 21 & 11. Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley also scored double figures.
Despite the win, reality is that the Suns aren’t a good team. Dallas was shorthanded, and the Lakers are a mess. The Jazz improve to 3-0 at home, but none of these wins are really that impressive (although the win over the Lakers is still satisfying nonetheless).
With an 0-4 road record, the Jazz now face a crucial road trip that could make or break this early part of the season. Toronto and Washington are both very bad teams, and Boston has been mediocre so far. Utah needs to come away at least 50-50 in this road trip to get something going.
Jazz player of the game: Al Jefferson
