For all the talk following Friday's win in Phoenix that the Jazz had improved on the road, that didn't seem to manifest itself the following night. Utah lost to Denver, 110-91, Saturday evening.

GUARDS: Jamaal Tinsely (5 points on 2-of-5 shooting, 5 assists) and Randy Foye (8 points on just 2-of-9 shooting, 3 turnovers) were clearly beaten by the Denver duo of Ty Lawson (14 points on 6-of-12 shooting, 4 assists) and Andre Iguodala (18 points on 5-of-9 shooting, 6 rebounds). The two Jazzmen represented their team's struggles to gain any momentum. Foye made just 1-of-5 3-point attempts after making 8 of 14 in his past four contests. GRADE: C-.

FORWARDS: Paul Millsap (15 points on 4-of-12 shooting, 7 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 blocks, 4 turnovers) and Marvin Williams (13 points on 4-of-10 shooting, 4 rebounds) were also edged — at least — by Kenneth Faried (15 points on 7-of-10 shooting, 10 rebounds) and especially small forward Danilo Gallinari (26 points on 7-of-11 shooting and 11 of 12 from the free-throw line). It's a wonder why Williams, already playing mediocre offensively, had 32 minutes when Gallinari was so dominating. Millsap has registered a dozen steals in merely the past three games. GRADE: C-.
