The Milwaukee Bucks fourth quarter rally fell short in Salt Lake City last night, falling to the Utah Jazz 96-87 at EnergySolutions Arena.
Gordon Hayward scored 22 points and center Derrick Favors added 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz (11-24).
The Bucks (7-25) finished just 4 for 22 from three-point range which didn’t help their cause. Larry Sanders was a perfect 7 for 7 from the field, scoring a season high 16 points and pulling down 8 rebounds.
Rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in his 34 minutes of playing time.
The Bucks fell to 1-7 against Western Conference teams and evened their record to 1-1 on their 3-game trip out west. The Bucks close out the Western swing at Phoenix on Saturday night.
