Game notes

This opens a back-to-back set and is outing No. 3 among four in five nights for the Jazz, who after falling Wednesday to Miami have lost two straight at home ... It closes a three-game, six-night trip for Toronto, which fired coach Sam Mitchell after Tuesday's 132-93 loss at Denver and replaced him for now with ex-Jazz training camp participant Jay Triano — the NBA's first head coach born in Canada ... Ex-Jazz forward Kris Humphries averages 4.9 points off the bench for the Raptors ... Utah has won six straight over Toronto.
