Recap: Utah vs. Milwaukee

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Derrick Favors had 21 points and 11 rebounds as the Utah Jazz defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 96-87 on Thursday night.

Gordon Hayward added 22 points for Utah, which has won three of its last four games.

"As we've gotten healthy, we are trying to find a rhythm," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Larry Sanders tallied 16 points and eight rebounds for the Bucks, who have dropped nine of their last 11 tilts.

"They withstood everything we threw at them," Sanders said.

The game was tied at 20-20 following a quarter of play, but the Jazz began to seize control of the contest in the second.

After O.J. Mayo nailed a jumper to give Milwaukee a 26-24 edge, Utah countered with 10 unanswered. Hayward had five points during the flurry, which was capped on a Diante Garret jumper for a 34-26 advantage.

Utah led 51-42 at the break and its margin reached as high as 15 in the third before settling for a 74-61 cushion heading into the final frame.

Sanders' layup whittled the Milwaukee deficit to 83-80 with 3:41 left, but Alec Burks drove in for a layup, Trey Burke hit a jumper and Favors' slam on three straight trips down the floor increased the advantage back to nine and the Bucks never got within less than seven the rest of the way.

Game Notes
