Marvin Williams, after a 21-point performance in Wednesday’s season-opening win against Dallas, was limited to 5 points and only one of his six 3-point attempts. Rather than generate interior offense, which the Jazz expect with a deep rotation of big men, they instead settled time and again for 3-point shots.

The Jazz were 10-of-28 on 3-pointers, tying a team record for most attempts in a game, and eclipsing previous mark (27) for attempts in a game that ended after four quarters.

"We don’t shoot a lot of jump shots," Corbin said. "That’s not who we are. We’ve got to make sure we’re attacking them inside."

One game removed from Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson and Derrick Favors combining to snare 39 rebounds, the Jazz barely reached that mark as a team. Led by nine boards from Favors, the Jazz outrebounded the Hornets 44-42.

However, the Jazz were outscored 56-36 in the paint, and did not shoot a free throw until the second quarter.

"We had some gaps defensively," Corbin said. "They were getting second shots, I thought they outworked us a little bit."

And that, Corbin would tell you, is not among the traits of a team that consistently wins on the road.
