Quotable: "We have four games in five days. We're trying to conserve some energy so we won't practice. If they don't know what to do by now, I might as well jump." Jazz coach Jerry Sloan.
Notable: Bob Delaney, who was scheduled to referee the game, had the flu. So instead of three refs, only two - Ron Olesiak and Leroy Richardson - called the action . . . The Jazz have now won 10 of their last 11. They have won four in a row on the road.
Next Up: Jazz at Boston, tonight, 6 p.m. at the Fleet Center.
