Jazz offensive struggles without injured Al Jefferson--Salt Lake Tribune

“We rely pretty heavily on the post game and so when we don’t have that many points and that much of our offense, it’s going to hurt,” said Raja Bell. “… When you are missing someone of his caliber, obviously that’s going to put us in a bind.”

Miscues costly for Jazz in 2-OT home loss to Raptors--Salt Lake Tribune

Derrick Favors started in place of Al Jefferson and scored 16 points to go along with 12 rebounds. But the Jazz really missed Jefferson, who stayed out of the game with an inflamed ankle. His scoring in the middle was sorely needed in crunch time, as was his ability to draw double-teams.

Without him, Millsap was seemingly alone. Gordon Hayward struggled mightily, going 1-of-9 from the field and scoring two points in 36 minutes. In the overtimes, Millsap was the only player on the floor who wanted the ball in his hands.

“He’s our hub,” Bell said. “He’s our big guy. When you miss 50 percent of what you do, it affects the rest of the offense. We needed that tonight and it wasn’t there.”
