Utah Jazz: Tyrone Corbin sticking with starting five--Deseret News

With only nine players to choose from, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin will stick with the same opening five he's used the past two games: Devin Harris, Gordon Hayward, C.J. Miles, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson.

The Jazz can thank C.J. Miles, who snapped out of a shooting funk by scoring 10 of his 18 points in the first quarter, along with Devin Harris and Gordon Hayward for a quick start.

Those three combined for 25 first-quarter points — Harris had eight and Hayward added seven — to help build an early 12-point lead and, well, set the strong Jazz tone.

And the rest of the nine-deep team contributed to a balanced victory the rest of the way, with multiple players on this shorthanded squad playing key roles and effective execution happening on both sides of the court.

"It felt like we held control of that game the whole game," Jazz forward Paul Millsap said. "When we do that and don't let up, we're a good team. That's all due to experience and chemistry — all of that is going to come in the future. But I like the way we played tonight."

While the Jazz rolled on offense — with Harris tying Miles for team-scoring honors with 18 points, Millsap adding 16 and Hayward chipping in 14 — Utah's defensive effort was the deciding factor.
