As promised, Corbin rested his prime-time players, which resulted in some eye-opening performances by rookie Alec Burks (18 points), Jeremy Evans (13 points, 10 rebounds) and Enes Kanter (12 points, 10 rebounds).

"We knew it was going to be a little bit of a relaxed atmosphere," Corbin said. "We wanted to make sure we played to get better. Not to embarrass anybody. Not to clown around. And I thought for the most part we did that."

The Jazz used a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter to build a 94-88 lead.

They survived a late rally by the Blazers, whose chance to win ended when Wesley Matthews missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

"It’s back to work tomorrow," Corbin said. "We got film to start watching on those guys … and be ready to go on Sunday."
