PHILADELPHIA — The Utah Jazz find themselves trailing at halftime to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Paul Millsap has 10 points and seven rebounds for the Jazz, but the Sixers rallied out of an early eight-point deficit to take a 49-47 lead into the break.

Thaddeus Young came off the bench and sparked Philly. He leads both teams with 12 points.

Al Jefferson and Devin Harris each have eight points for Utah, which is looking for its third straight road win.

The Jazz (19-19) are in this despite allowing the Atlantic Division-leading Sixers (23-17) outshoot them 51.3 percent to 44.4 percent.
