NEW ORLEANS --- Al Jefferson scored 19 points and Utah forced 19 turnovers in the first three quarters as the Jazz defeated the New Orleans Hornets 96-84 Wednesday night at the New Orleans Arena. The road victory was a breakthrough of sorts for the Jazz, who are 6-0 at home but won for only the third time in 10 road games. Paul Millsap and Marvin Williams added 16 points each Playing without point guard Mo Williams, Utah built a 72-56 lead on the strength of a 31-17 third quarter in which it forced nine New Orleans turnovers and held the Hornets to 5-of-14 shooting. Williams scored eight of his 16 points in the period but had to be helped to the bench late in the quarter after hitting his head and falling to the floor. The Hornets got within seven points on three separate occasions in the fourth quarter -- the last at 84-77 with 5:14 left -- but Gordon Hayward hit a pair of 3-pointers and converted a conventional three-point play in the final 7:08 to help the Jazz regain their...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Hornets rookie Anthony Davis has been scratched for a sixth straight game against Utah, which has ruled out Mo Williams for a third consecutive game on Wednesday night.
Hornets coach Monty Williams says he does not expect Davis to return from his left ankle injury at least until next week. The Hornets have one more game this week when Oklahoma City visits on Saturday night.
Back on Tuesday, we featured a video of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love scoring on a lucky fadeaway jump shot.
Earlier tonight, Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors somehow tipped in a bad pass from Earl Watson against the New Orleans Hornets for a bucket:
NEW ORLEANS -- It was far from a thing of beauty, but it was Utah Jazz basketball at its grinding, blue-collar best. The Jazz forced 19 turnovers in the first three quarters and held the New Orleans Hornets scoreless for the first 6:51 of the second quarter en route to a 96-84 Wednesday night at the New Orleans Arena. Utah (9-7) earned just its third road victory this season...
CAUGHT HIM HIGH
The Clippers brought in Matt Barnes to give the team a little extra toughness on both ends of the floor. He plays with an edge in a way that not many players do. His pure intensity can motivate the rest of his team, and I’m sure a lot of guys like to play with Barnes on their side. That being said, he can cross the line a little bit sometimes between edgy and dirty. This shot below...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Al Jefferson had 19 points, Marvin Williams scored 16 before leaving with concussion symptoms and the Utah Jazz won its second straight game Wednesday night, 96-84 over the New Orleans Hornets.
Paul Millsap scored nine of his 16 points during a dominant third quarter for Utah, and Gordon Hayward had 13 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to help the Jazz overcome...
Despite a drastic difference in their home and road records, the Utah Jazz made the playoffs last season. It might not be as easy for them to return to the postseason if that trend continues.
The Jazz hope to turn things around away from home Wednesday night when they open a three-game trip looking to avoid a fourth straight road loss to the New Orleans Hornets.

I was hopeful, even on the second leg of a back-to-back, that the Denver Nuggets would be able to edge a win in Utah, but unfortunately a combination visible (read: bad) officiating, missed free throws, an ejection, poor decision-making, and the stomach flu propelled Utah to a 105-103 win over Denver. I’m going to get [...]The post Case of the Missed Free Throws; Utah Jazz Skirt...
Al Jefferson scored a season-high 28 points and Derrick Favors made three free throws down the stretch, helping the Utah Jazz remain unbeaten at home with a 105-103 win over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.
The Nuggets had a chance to tie it with 3.6 seconds left but Ty Lawson was double-teamed and passed too late for Corey Brewer to get off a final shot.
The Jazz, who improved...

The Jazz's defense was nowhere to be found in the first half, but it was Utah's defense that sealed the win down the stretch. Utah's Randy Foye and DeMarre...
