FORWARDS: There's a reason why Paul Millsap is a fan-favorite. He left the game with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter, but quickly returned. His shot was on, as he went 6-for-7 from the field and had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Gordon Hayward was also much better than he was on Monday night, as he had 12 points on 5-for-7 shooting. Milwaukee's starting frontcourt made 7 of 26 attempts and was badly outplayed by Millsap and Hayward. Grade: A

In the first half alone, Jefferson scored 19 points, hitting 8-of-11 shots from the floor and all three of his free throws, and he also pulled down five rebounds and blocked a shot. He combined with Gordon Hayward and Paul Millsap to account for 32 of Utah's 43 first-half points.

"Defensively, we really stepped up tonight," Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward said. "And we're going to have to keep doing that."
Millsap added 13 points and 12 boards, Hayward chipped in 12 points and Earl Watson dished out eight assists, filling in nicely for Harris after the starter left in the third quarter. Favors finished with a line of six points, seven rebounds and five blocks.

Swaying like a beaten-down boxer but never hitting the mat, the Jazz survived. Lifted up by a combined 15 fourth-quarter points from Paul Millsap, Gordon Hayward and Al Jefferson, Utah used a 17-6 run that bridged the third period with the fourth to finally put the Bucks away.
Recent NBA Draft lottery picks Alec Burks, Enes Kanter, Favors and Hayward combined for 32 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists, with each playing a key role in Utah’s survival.

"We’re all, what, 20, 21? Gordon’s the oldest one: 21," Burks said. "We’re all young and we’re going to keep running. We’re just trying to bring as much energy as possible."
