-- The Jazz outrebounded the Warriors, 65-40. Derrick Favors (17), Enes Kanter (13) and Paul Millsap had at least 12 rebounds. The Jazz grabbed 20 offensive rebounds, including six by Favors and four by Kanter, who played only 20 minutes. Said coach Tyrone Corbin:, "We didn't shoot a great percentage, but to get 20 offensive rebounds, it means we were in the right position ... [and] preparing ourselves to get those rebounds. It shows a lot of hustle."

-- The Jazz limited Golden State to 41-percent shooting and 41 points after halftime. "Guys were doing a good job of trying to stay between their man and the basket," Corbin said. "We had a few breakdowns, especially early in the game. But I thought, in the fourth quarter and the overtime, we did a great job of getting up on guys, sliding our feet and making that extra effort." After making two of their first three attempts from the three-point line, the Warriors finished 6-for-25.

-- Asked about Favors' game-tying three-point play with 27.8 seconds remaining, Golden State coach Mark Jackson said, "Situations like that -- worst-case scenario -- you should force the guy to take two free throws. You can't give him the basket and the foul. You're better off just letting him go and dunk it. Just a bad play." For the record, Andris Biedrins committed the foul that sent Favors to free-throw line.

-- Newly-acquired Richard Jefferson scored five points on his first two possessions as a member of the Warriors. But he ended up with only nine points on 2-for-14 shooting in 38 minutes. Jefferson went 0-for-2 in overtime. "He's going to be fine," said Jackson. "He missed some shots. He was a little out of sync. But we are not worried about him. We know exactly who he is."

-- David Lee finished with 18 points and seven rebounds for Golden State. He scored the Warriors' final seven points of the first half and their first four in the third quarter -- 11 straight in that stretch. "In overtime ... they overwhelmed us," Lee said.

-- With back-up point guard Earl Watson sidelined with a sprained ankle, Jamaal Tinsley played 23 minutes. He scored 13 points and handed out two assists. Tinsley has now produced 19 points and seven assists in the last two games. "I got the opportunity to play some extra minutes and the shots were falling," he said. Tinsley.

-- Jeremy Evans hadn't played in four straight games, but he saw 13 minutes of action against Golden State. Evans contributed five points, five rebounds and one blocked shot. "Coach always says that, when he calls your name, you've got to be ready," Evans said. "I went out and just tried to do what I do -- bring energy."

-- Steve Luhm
