First Published Feb 06 2013 02:42 pm • Last Updated Feb 08 2013 07:11 pm

Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap scored 19 points and the Utah Jazz rolled to a 100-86 victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday night at EnergySolutions Arena.

Enes Kanter added 17 points for the Jazz, who won for the fourth time in five games.

The Jazz took an early 6-4 lead, but they converted only two of their next 12 possessions.

Behind the play of Brandon Jennings, Milwaukee used an 18-4 run to build a 22-10 advantage with less than three minutes left in the first quarter.

Utah found some life, however, and closed with eight straight points to make it 25-19.

In the second quarter, Alec Burks opened with a three-point shot and Kanter scored 11 points in a 3 1/2-minute stretch. His three-point play gave the Jazz a 37-33 lead and they limited Milwaukee to only two field goals in the final five minutes.

Kanter finished the half with 13 points and seven rebounds in nine minutes. Millsap added 10 points on 5-for-9 shooting.

In the third quarter, Jennings missed four straight free throws in the opening 70 seconds, giving the Jazz a chance to take get going.

Jefferson scored four quick points to make it 58-46 and Utah eventually closed with an 8-2 run to make it 77-62 heading into the final 12 minutes.
