SALT LAKE CITY — The injury-plagued Utah Jazz are back to full strength, and it shows.
The Jazz are trailing to the Los Angeles Lakers at halftime, 49-47, but they're playing much better than they did in Thursday's blowout loss at Golden State without injured guards Devin Harris (hamstring), Raja Bell (adductor) and Earl Watson (ankle).
Jefferson leads Utah with 10 points and five rebounds, and Paul Millsap has contributed eight points and seven boards for the Jazz. Utah (12-9) is hoping to snap a two-game losing streak overall and against the Lakers (14-9).
L.A.'s big three of Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol have carried the visitors with a combined 40 points.
Josh Howard, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter each have six points for Utah, which plays five of its next six on the road.
Bell has topped the returned injured players with five points in his first game in a week.
