The Utah Jazz lost yet another game on the road. This time they fell to the 76ers, losing 99-93 in Philadelphia.

The Jazz have struggled as a team to play a complete game on the road, and those struggles continued Friday. Every time the Jazz went on a run, the Sixers would call timeout and go on a run of their own.

Paul Millsap scored just two points in the first half but went off for 20 in the second half. DeMarre Carroll added 17 points, five boards and two steals off the bench.

After being dominated at home by the Detroit Pistons, the Sixers had six players reach double-figures in scoring, including 26 points from Jrue Holliday.

Against a team that has struggled in the paint all season, the Jazz got outrebounded 43-40 overall and 11-10 on the offensive glass.

With the loss, the Jazz fall to 4-6 while the Sixers improve to 5-4. The Jazz travel to Washington D.C. to take on the Wizards Saturday at 5 p.m. MST.
