A day later, Corbin said he liked what he saw from Trey Burke, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams and Derrick Favors, the unit that started the second half for Utah.
"We seemed to flow better with that group," he said.

"It’s not flowing as well as I thought it would," he said, "and because of being short-handed we’ve stuck with it. … Maybe we split the two guys and we’re able to go at guys more."
Kanter and Favors have played just over 300 minute...

That game in the rocky mile-high air in Denver tonight just got a tad tougher for the Dallas Mavericks because they failed to take care of business Friday night against the Utah Jazz.

As this has been dubbed a “season of discovery”, this helps us judge improvement as the season progresses. By doing so we won’t get as disappointed when we lose as many games as we could lose. The match up for the Utah Jazz game tonight...
