After a slow start, the Utah Jazz put together a 32-point second quarter that was key in a 100-86 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

Utah starters allowed the team to get down early in the first quarter, but the team's role players kept the Jazz in the game. The bench tallied a total of 45 points.

Despite the slow start, starters Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap found their game in the second half. They each finished with 19 points, with Jefferson adding 11 rebounds.

Milwaukee only shot 35 percent from the field. Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and forward Ersan Ilyasova contributed 17 points each.
