CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Utah Jazz are halfway home to another victory on the road. It hasn't been easy against the five-win Charlotte Bobcats, though.

Al Jefferson has 12 points and Paul Millsap put in 10, but the Jazz only hold a 51-47 lead over the Bobcats.

Corey Maggette has 16 points for Charlotte, which is coming off of a big win over Orlando.

The Jazz are looking for their second straight victory on the road for only the second time this season. Utah is 18-19 overall but just 4-13 away from home.

Devin Harris (nine points) and Derrick Favors (eight points) have also played well for the Jazz so far. Harris' buzzer-beating 3-pointer gave the Jazz some momentum heading into the locker room.
