THIS AND THAT: Because of the injuries, Corbin was forced to use his 11th different starting lineup of the season and the fourth different one in four consecutive games. … Charlotte's nine-point quarter was the lowest for the Bobcats and a Jazz opponent this season. … Utah was up 47-24 at halftime, giving the team its biggest lead after a first half and the lowest point total for an opponent. … Ex-Jazzman Carlos Boozer had the team's last 20-20 game in regulation, totaling 21 points and 20 rebounds against Phoenix on Jan. 25, 2010. Jefferson had 28 points and 26 boards in a triple-overtime game vs. Dallas last April. … Utah outrebounded Charlotte 62-24, a season-high night on the boards for them and a season-low for an opponent.
