Recap: Utah vs. Golden State

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Al Jefferson led seven Utah players in double figures with 24 points as the Jazz downed the Golden State Warriors, 115-101, on Tuesday.

Gordon Hayward, who had missed the last 10 games with a sprained right shoulder, scored 17 points for the Jazz, who have won three straight games. Randy Foye dropped in 15 points, while Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors added 14 apiece.

Alec Burks scored 13 points and Marvin Williams added 11 in the triumph.

"We understood how tough this game was going to be. We came out today and established ourselves early. We were able to come out with a good win," Williams said.

Stephen Curry poured in a game-high 29 points on 12-for-22 shooting and Jarrett Jack added 19 points and nine assists off the bench for the Warriors, who have dropped six straight.

"They outworked us, and once again we were not sharp defensively." Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "We did not take care of the basketball. It was another uncharacteristic performance and we have to find ourselves."

The Jazz led 26-19 after the first 12 minutes and took a 58-53 lead into the halftime break.

The Warriors managed to cut the Utah lead to one following a Curry trey early in the third quarter, but the Warriors used a 15-4 flurry to go up 81-69 with 3 1/2 minutes left in the period.

A 6-1 Golden State sequence made it 82-75 in Utah's favor just 1 1/2 minutes later, and the Warriors went into the final stanza down 87-79.

Hayward canned a long two to give the Jazz an 11-point lead early in the fourth quarter, but Golden State was able to make it a six-point game moments later following Curry's trey.

It would be as close as the Warriors would get, however, as they were outscored by Utah by a 22-14 count the rest of the way.
