This was the first time Utah won consecutive games since it capped a seven-game winning streak with a win over Indiana on Dec. 1. It also improved the Jazz's pre-Christmas road trip record to 2-1 with a second win in three nights following their Big Easy bungle.
Miles said the Jazz left the 29-point blowout loss on the New Orleans Arena court as they walked off it last Friday.
"We did everything wrong," Miles said of that 100-71 loss. "It was just one of those days and we hadn't had a game like that. ... It happened and I think it was just something that kind of put a little chip on our shoulder for the rest of the trip and woke everybody up."
Utah, now 9-4 away from home, will have a shot to close out the four-game swing on a winning note Wednesday in Minnesota, when Jefferson returns to his old stomping grounds for the first time since being traded this summer.
