ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Gordon Hayward scored 13 points, Al Jefferson added 12 and the Utah Jazz easily overcame Kobe Bryant's 23-point third quarter for a 114-80 victory over the winless Los Angeles Lakers in a preseason game Tuesday night. Bryant finished with 31 points, while Jodie Meeks added 12 points on four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter for the Lakers, who rested Pau Gasol and kept Dwight Howard out of their lineup again. Steve Nash had two points and four turnovers while playing only 12 minutes for Los Angeles, which is proving coach Mike Brown wasn't exaggerating when he said he didn't care if his club went winless in the preseason. Utah led by 20 points at halftime, by 35 in the third quarter and by 41 in the fourth, easily slicing through the Lakers' makeshift lineups.
