Utah Jazz beat Milwaukee Bucks sans Andrew Bogut, 85-73
Scott G Winterton, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — Not long before Tuesday night's game tipped off, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that former Ute standout Andrew Bogut, as well as Mike Dunleavy and Beno Udrih, would not play against the Utah Jazz.
The night, as one could imagine, didn't get any better for the visitors.
The Jazz took advantage of the depleted Bucks squad, earning an ugly 85-73 win at EnergySolutions Arena. The victory was Utah's second in a row in as many nights and evened its record to 3-3.
Paul Millsap added 13 points and 12 rebounds, Gordon Hayward contributed 12 points, Alec Burks had nine points and six assists, and Derrick Favors blocked five shots to go with his nine points.
The game had some bad news for Utah, though.
Backup small forward Josh Howard left late in the first quarter with a left quad strain and didn't return. Starting point Devin Harris also left later on with a strained left calf.
Bogut missed for personal reasons. Gooden led the Bucks (2-3) with 24 points and 12 boards.
