CHICAGO - Derrick Favors and the Utah Jazz wanted to match the intensity of the Chicago Bulls, and they certainly accomplished that goal on Wednesday night. Cheap Vapormax Nz .Favours collected 20 points and 11 rebounds, and Utah had a strong defensive effort in a 97-77 victory over the Bulls.The Jazz held the Bulls to a season-low point total on just 28-of-84 (33.3 per cent) shooting. The Bulls were averaging 103.1 points.I think we just wanted to come out and be physical because we know Chicago is gonna be physical, Favors said. We wanted to come out and match their intensity, match their physicality and I think we did a good job of that.Gordon Hayward had 18 points for Utah (13-23), and Trey Burke scored 17. Seven of the Jazzs wins have come on the road.I think it was a team effort; collectively, we played great on the defensive end, Burke said. We knew they were one of the greater defensive teams in the NBA, so we knew it was gonna be an aggressive game. I think for 48 minutes we competed.Jimmy Butler led the Bulls with 16 points and 11 rebounds, and reserve Taj Gibson added 15 points.Chicago point guard Derrick Rose had just seven points on 3-for-15 shooting. The 2011 NBA MVP is shooting 25.5 per cent (28 for 110) in his last six games.We just wasnt making any shots; I know I wasnt making any shots, Rose said. Losing the way we did tonight, it hurt.The Bulls (25-11) went 3-2 on a five-game homestand. They are 11-7 at home this season and have come out flat against teams with losing records a few times.Youre always concerned, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. I dont want to overreact, but I dont want to underreact, either.With outside temperatures dropping below zero, the United Center was colder than usual — and the first-half shooting was quite chilly for both teams.The Bulls were just 13 for 46 (28.3 per cent) from the field in the first half, including 0-for-13 shooting by their starting backcourt of Rose (0 for 9) and Kirk Hinrich.Utah suffered through 2-for-16 shooting over the first 10 minutes of the second quarter, but closed the first half with an 8-2 spurt for a 36-32 halftime lead.The Jazz carried the momentum into the second half, opening the third period with a 13-5 surge.Following a timeout, the Bulls responded with a 9-0 run to trim Utahs lead to 49-46 with six minutes left in the third. Rose, who missed his first 10 shots, made back-to-back baskets on a driving layup and a short-range floater.They had a chance to move even closer, but they had turnovers on back-to-back possessions, and Utah increased its advantage to 63-51 heading into the fourth quarter. The Jazz then opened the final period with a 14-3 run for a 77-54 lead with nine minutes to play.We caught them on a tough night, Utah coach Quin Snyder said. But that doesnt diminish the fact that we were clicking a little bit on the defensive end.WORK IN PROGRESSWith Rose mired in a slump, Thibodeau tried to take the big view. Rose was sidelined by injuries for much of the previous few seasons.You have to understand, hes been out for 2 1/2 years, Thibodeau said. When you get away from that competition for 2 1/2 years, it doesnt come back in a week. You have to compete in practice, you have to compete getting yourself ready and you have to keep going.There are gonna be some bumps in the road. As long as he keeps stringing games together, hell figure it out. I have a lot of confidence in that.FORCE IN PAINTOne of the reasons for Utahs strong defence was centre Rudy Gobert, who had 11 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. He also altered many Bulls attempts down low.TIP-INSJazz: Burke returned after missing the previous game with strep throat. Center Enes Kanter (right ankle sprain) missed his third straight game, and Alec Burks (left shoulder surgery) and Rodney Hood (left foot inflammation) are out indefinitely.Bulls: Forward Mike Dunleavy (right ankle) was listed as questionable, but missed his third straight game. He might be ready to return over the weekend.UP NEXTJazz: Visit Oklahoma City on Friday.Bulls: Visit Washington on Friday. Vapormax Flyknit 3 Nz . -- The way Ted Ligety carved into turns looked so easy. Vapormax 2019 Nz . Colorado came up big against Chicago last spring, and repeated that performance Tuesday night. Varlamov stopped 36 shots and Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist for the Avalanche in a 5-1 victory over the Blackhawks. . -- Ben Bishop had a milestone game against one of the NHLs greatest goalies.Paul McGinley looks back on an action-packed week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, where Jason Day saw off Rory McIlroy on his way to a second successive PGA Tour title and a return to world No 1. Often what separates the top players on a week-to-week basis is that one small element of confidence and Jasons certainly got that. He had a big boost with the win last week at Bay Hill and he carried it into proceedings in Austin.He has the ability to play on the front foot and be aggressive, particularly with how long and generally straight he hits with the driver, and he just gave his opponents no chance. Victory moves Day back to world No 1 Having watched both matches though, what impressed me was how outstanding his short game was. He had just 23 putts in the semi-final and his putting in the afternoon was equally impressive too.Day kept hitting fairways, putting the pressure on his opponents and controlling matches. He didnt have any easy matches, as youd expect when youre playing the leading 64 players in the world, but he had enough in the tank to keep winning. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips. Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Paul McGinley I think youve got to credit Day for his mental strength against Rory McIlroy. That was a real battle between two heavyweights and it came right down to the very last hole.Rory, from tee to green played very well, but he missed some chances with the putter which he could have done with making to put daylight between him and his Australian counterpart.Once Jason got the bit between his teeth, he was going to be very hard to beat. You just started to feel thee tide was turning Jasons way as the match neared its conclusion. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Nz. Days WGC title How Jason Day claimed Match Play victory Then in the final, Louis Oosthuizen lost the initiative when he missed a short birdie putt to go two up. Jason then took control and when Louis looks back at the game, hell see the first two holes were his chance.Major thinkingIts funny how quickly the narrative can change in professional golf. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips. Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Adam Scott and Jason Day have both been back-to-back winners on the PGA Tour this year Days burst into form, you know Jordan Spieth is going to get his act together to be strong at Augusta and of course Rorys going to be buoyed after the way he played this week.McIlroy hasnt had a win this year, but his game seems to be heading in the right direction. You could add at least four or five other names though who are all legitimate contenders.Jason though is incredibly ambitious and keeps talking about winning several major champions. Hes going to go forward and Ill be very surprised if at the end of his career he doesnt have many more major titles.Hes up for the fight, hes looking forward and obviously very confident. Day is certainly going to be a factor at Augusta.Watch all four days of the Masters from April 7-10 live on Sky Sports - your home of golf Also See: Day storms to Match Play title McIlroy finishes in fourth spot WGC day five: as it happened Golf live on Sky Sports 4 ' ' '
