SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson each scored 19 points, Enes Kanter had 17 and a career-high five blocks, and the Utah Jazz defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 100-86 on Wednesday night.
Kanter went 5 of 5 with five rebounds and a block during the second quarter when the Jazz took control after trailing by 12 in the first.
Utah dominated inside as the Bucks were without the NBA's leading shot blocker, Larry Sanders, because of a back injury. The Jazz held a 31-10 advantage on second-chance points and a 56-36 edge on points in the paint.
Jefferson and Derrick Favors led Utah with 11 rebounds apiece, and the Jazz had a 50-37 advantage on the boards.
Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova led Milwaukee with 17 points apiece.
The Bucks pulled to 90-81 on Samuel Dalembert's free throws with 3:24 left, but he was called for goaltending on the next Jazz possession.
