Jazz going big for Game 4 against Spurs; Favors starting

Notes following Jazz shootaround Monday at EnergySolutions Arena.

Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said he plans to start a big lineup featuring Paul Millsap, Derrick Favors and Al Jefferson during Game 4 against San Antonio.

Devin Harris and Gordon Hayward will round out the Jazz's first five.

Corbin's moving to the big lineup because he's looking for a significant change as Utah plays a possible elimination game. The Jazz have been outscored 170-108 in the paint during Games 1-3 and Utah has only won one quarter, while Spurs point guard Tony Parker has controlled the series.

"We're going to still run our offense and see if we can get the ball inside a little bit more and get points in the paint more," Corbin said. "They've taken advantage of us there."

Corbin had been reluctant all series to use the big lineup for an extended period because of San Antonio's pinpoint 3-point shooting — the Spurs are hitting 39 percent of their attempts beyond the arc.

But with Utah down 3-0 and having been outscored by a combined 58 points, Corbin is looking for something to spur his unproven team.

"Trying to find something new to get off. We've given up 30, 28 and 28 [points] in the first quarter," Corbin said. "We'll see if it gives us a little punch there. It's been good for us in the past to see if we can try and force our will on these guys a little bit more, instead of us making all the adjustments to them."
