Bench Comes Up Big, As Jazz Rip Cavs 109-98
(KUTV) C.J.Miles made his return to Utah as a Cavalier and was greeted by the warm ovation from the home crowd at EnergerySolutions Arena Saturday night.
Miles was shaky in his return, connecting on just 4 of 11 shots for 12 points. Utah's bench was not, the Jazz reserves scored 51 points and got a season high 19 points from forward Derrick Favors.
Favors was on target from the field hitting his first seven shots of the game. Second-year player Enes Kanter also had a big night, with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Jazz 3-point shooting specialist Randy Foye knocked down three 3-pointers and led the team with 20 points.
Utah held the edge in fast break points, outscoring the Cavs by a decisive margin of 21-5. The Jazz are right back in the playoff picture but don't play again until Jan. 23 at home against the Wizards.
