Short-handed Bucks fall to Jazz 109-88

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Al Jefferson had 22 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots to lead the Utah Jazz to a 109-88 victory Monday night over injury-depleted Milwaukee.

Deron Williams also scored 22 points for the Jazz (14-5), who have won six straight.

Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee (6-11) with 27 points while Ersan Ilyasova added 18 for the Bucks. Milwaukee, again missing three key players because of injury, made 7 of 12 3-pointers in the first half to keep it close.

But the Bucks couldn't keep up with Utah's inside game without big men Andrew Bogut and Drew Gooden. The Jazz held a 54-18 advantage in the paint and 48-26 edge in rebounds. They also had 10 blocked shot.

On the flip side, Utah committed 20 turnovers.
