The Utah Jazz received a welcome victory after their return home to Salt Lake City on Monday night, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers, 107-91.

Jazz scoring was evenly spread, but Randy Foye led the way with 17 points. Utah also shot well as a team — 49 percent from the field and 50 percent from behind the arc. The 76ers did not hold a lead once on the night.

The victory was critical, considering Utah has lost 12 of 16 games since the All-Star break.

The Jazz are now 35-36 on the season.
