Early on, Richard Jefferson gets the pass from Gordon Hayward on the break for the score.
The rook, Trey Burke, creating his shots! The Jazz got 12 points from the Michigan kid.
Later in the game, Alec Burkes keeps the loose ball alive; Lucas there to hit the jumper and he led all scorers with 16.

Later in the game Derrick Favors with the reverse layup, it's only pre-season, but some good things out of the Jazz.
In the end the Jazz got the win 101-78.
