Recap: Utah vs. Milwaukee

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap scored 19 points apiece to lead the Utah Jazz to a 100-86 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.

Jefferson also had 11 rebounds for the Jazz, who have won four of their past five games. Enes Kanter registered 17 points and nine rebounds off the bench.

"I thought he was great," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said of Kanter. "I thought he did a great job of giving us energy from the time he stepped on the floor."

Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova scored 17 points apiece for the Bucks, who came into the game off a loss against Denver on Tuesday. Samuel Dalembert recorded 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Milwaukee had a 25-19 advantage entering the second quarter. However, it was outscored 32-18 in the frame. Kanter scored 11 points alone and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the field.

Millsap's fadeaway with 7:22 remaining gave Utah a 34-33 edge.

The Bucks had difficulty shooting in the third, shooting just 26.3 percent from the field, including 1-of-6 from three-point range, and were held scoreless in the final 2:16.

Entering the fourth, Utah had a 77-62 lead.

Dalembert's free throws with 3 1/2 minutes left to play closed the deficit to 90-81, but he was then called for goaltending on the following Jazz possession and Milwaukee was unable to get any closer.

"They just dominated us in the paint," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said of the Jazz. "Our guys battled, but they are a physical team. That's their strength. They took advantage of it."
