Jazz play all the right notes in rout of Hornets

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- It isn't supposed to be this easy at this stage of an NBA season.

Not when you're the Utah Jazz and you have two starters out of the lineup. Not when you're on the second night of a back-to-back after losing a grueling and humbling game against Phoenix. Not when your All-Star point guard is dealing with shoulder, ankle and wrist injuries.

But Utah's 70th game of its regular season looked to take about as much effort as a Sunday walk in the park as the Jazz rolled to a 106-86 victory over New Orleans on Saturday night. Utah (45-25) led New Orleans (33-38) by 34 points after three quarters before resting its starters for the full final period.

"We were aggressive all night and attacked -- defensively and offensively," said Jazz forward C.J. Miles. "We wanted to come out and make sure we got after it after last night. We had a sour taste in our mouths."

Utah's loss to Phoenix on Friday was quickly forgotten with its performance against New Orleans. The Jazz took control of the game early with a dominant first quarter. They scored 22 of their 30 first-period points in the paint. They shot 73.7 percent, and only attempted two 3-pointers.

There was hardly any need to shoot 3-pointers on this night, as the Jazz precisely executed their half-court offense and at times created what seemed to be layup parades to the basket. The Jazz finished with 60 points in the paint. Their biggest lead of the game was 35 points in the third quarter.

"We expected a bounce-back mentality from the Jazz coming into this game," said New Orleans coach Jeff Bower. "We pretty much saw that. I thought they played well. They were sharp with the passing, shooting and rebounding. They outplayed us from the beginning."

The Hornets were already shorthanded without star point guard Chris Paul for the 25th straight game because of his left knee injury. They also lost David West with 1:50 left in the first quarter when he was whistled for a flagrant two foul on Kyle Korver and ejected.

West's ejection left a seismic hole in the Hornets' interior defense and limited their options on offense. Utah capitalized.

"We knew they were limited in the post," said Jazz forward Paul Millsap, who had 22 points and a season-high 15 rebounds. "With David West out early, we knew we had the advantage down low."

The Jazz, who were without starters Mehmet Okur (stomach virus) and Andrei Kirilenko (strained left calf), certainly needed the break that their blowout victory provided. Carlos Boozer played less than 16 minutes and had 10 points and four rebounds. Deron Williams, who iced his shoulder, wrist and knees on the bench in the fourth quarter, played 30 minutes and had 17 points and 11 assists.

"It was great," Williams said of sitting out the fourth quarter. "I'd like to do that every game if I could."

Miles started in place of Kirilenko and the Jazz didn't miss a beat. Miles sank his first eight shots and scored 19 points. He also had four assists.

"My first three shots were two layups and a dunk," Miles said. "Anybody feels good after those. I was just able to get in some open spots."

Kyrylo Fesenko started in Okur's place and played 43 minutes. He tied a season-high in points with 11 and had a season-high eight rebounds.

"He did a great job today, getting down low and bangin'," Millsap said. "Fes, he's a character, but he comes out to play. When his name is called, he comes out and does the best he can, and it showed today."

The Hornets looked like they were ready to return home after enduring their longest road trip of the season. Saturday night's loss capped a five-game western trip in which they went 1-4 and moved closer to being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

The Jazz understand the predicament New Orleans was in on Saturday.

"In all fairness to them, they've got Chris Paul sitting at home, West got kicked out of the ballgame," Sloan said. "Those are probably the two best players on their team, and it took a lot away from them. They've lost some games and I thought they played hard. They looked a little bit tired."

The Hornets looked to put up little resistance in the first three quarters against the Jazz, even if it didn't feel that way to Utah.

"Did it look easy?" Millsap asked. "It didn't feel like it. It felt like it was pretty tough out there. Every game is tough. It's tough when go out there and play against NBA players."
