SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz lead the Houston Rockets 49-44 at halftime.
C.J. Miles leads Utah with 13 points, and Devin Harris has 12 points on 6-for-6 shooting.
Luis Scola has 14 for Houston.
The Jazz are without Paul Millsap (bruised heel), Raja Bell (strained adductor) and Jamaal Tinsley (stomach flu).
Utah (15-18) is trying to snap a four-game losing streak, which began a week ago Sunday in Houston against the 21-14 Rockets.
Dunk champion Jeremy Evans was honored by Jazz brass and Utah Gov. Gary Herbert before the game along with Rising Stars Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors.
