Jefferson leads Utah to a narrow win as Jazz stay put in Western Conference standings.

The Jazz trailed by as many as seven in the third quarter, which was Jefferson’s best. He finished with 19 points in the frame.

"He’s doing a great job of mixing his attempts at the basket," Corbin said, "and sometimes he can go against two guys. But when he’s one-on-one on that block against most guys, we get some good stuff."
