He found Carroll, who had not played in five of the Jazz’s last six games. The former first-round pick of the Memphis Grizzlies was a perfect 6 of 6 from the floor, including a 3-pointer that pulled the Jazz within 71-69 amid a 13-2 run that saw them come back to tie the game after trailing 69-58.

“That’s my niche,” Carroll said. “That’s how I got in the league. I’m just staying true to myself. I’m a blue-collar guy.”

It was a pleasant surprise at small forward for the Jazz, who needed it after Marvin Williams was a non-factor. The first-year Jazz player scored just two points on four shot attempts in 22 minutes.

Mo Williams, who scored 12 points despite an injured right thumb — first jammed in Toronto, reinjured on the first play Friday — endorsed Carroll’s performance, and Millsap said the fourth-year pro “earned some minutes” with his performance.

“He brings a lot of energy to the team,” Williams said. “When he does, he makes plays like that. Nobody’s going to make all their shots, but the intangible part of the game that he brings is irreplaceable.”

But the Jazz couldn’t help Carroll to a fully satisfying return to the court. The Sixers were coming off an embarrassing double-digit home loss to previously winless Detroit on Wednesday, and started out Friday on fire, as Corbin said before the game he feared they would.

Philadelphia made 10 of its first 14 shots, including four 3-pointers, to take a 24-13 lead. After the Jazz went up 37-35 on a basket by Carroll, the Sixers closed the half on a 15-5 run and led 50-42 at the break.

“I just wish we had the same effort and intensity to start the game off,” Millsap said, “as when we tied the game. How to keep that same intensity?”
