After tinkering with his lineup a bit, Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin might be on to something.
The Jazz will try for a season-high third straight victory Friday night when they host the Sacramento Kings in the opener of a home-and-home series.
Utah (6-6) defeated Houston 102-91 at home Monday, with the club winning for the second time in as many games with its new starting lineup of Mo Williams, Randy Foye, Paul Millsap, Derrick Favors and Al Jefferson.
Corbin has chosen to bring Gordon Hayward and Marvin Williams off the bench after both started the first 10 games, and Hayward has responded with back-to-back 15-point efforts.
"I think it's good to have Marvin and Gordon coming off the bench because their confidence is back up, shooting the ball real well," said Jefferson, averaging a team-high 15.4 points and 12.0 rebounds.
The Jazz scored a season-high 30 fast-break points against Houston and their 30 assists tied their best mark of the season.
