Scott G Winterton, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz hold a two-point edge over the Minnesota Timberwolves in what's been an entertaining and well-played first half Saturday night.
C.J. Miles scored 11 points and Paul Millsap had 10 for the Jazz, who went to the locker room with a 54-52 lead over the flashy Timberwolves.
Rookie Ricky Rubio — say that five times fast — hasn't disappointed in his first showing at EnergySolutions Arena. The Spanish playmaker totaled nine points and seven assists — many of the highlight variety — in the opening half.
Derrick Williams and Wesley Johnson scored a combined 21 points, while power forward standout Kevin Love has been limited to just seven points and six rebounds.
Minnesota (7-8) has won three games in a row, including a last-second victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.
The Jazz (9-5) are looking to get back to their winning ways after falling to Dallas 94-91 on Thursday.
