Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson and the Utah Jazz rebounded from the worst home loss in franchise history to edge the New Orleans Hornets, 104-99, on Wednesday.
The Jazz, two days removed from an embarrassing 125-80 loss to the Houston Rockets at EnergySolutions Arena, shot 50 percent from the field and outscored the Eric Gordon-less Hornets at the free throw line, 32-17.
Millsap totaled 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Jefferson added 22 points for the victors. Randy Foye chipped in 14 points and eight assists, and Derrick Favors logged 15 points off the bench in the victory.
The Hornets sat Gordon and his ailing knees after a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. They had five players score in double-figures, with Greivis Vasquez putting up 17 points to go with 13 assists.
