SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – At the halftime break of the Utah Jazz game against the Milwaukee Bucks, it might be hard to believe that the Jazz ever trailed by 14 early on.

Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and Chris Middle dominated early, scoring 10 points apiece to help the Bucks take an early 20-6 lead on Utah.

From there, the Jazz came alive and went on a huge run, outscoring the visiting Bucks 47-26 to take a 53-46 lead at halftime.

After defeating the Denver Nuggets, one of the top teams in the Western Conference, the Jazz have put up a strong showing against the Bucks, the top team in the Eastern Conference.

Every single Jazz player who saw the floor in the first half made a contribution to the huge run, led by 15 points by Donovan Mitchell.

The Jazz resurgence was highlighted by a monstrous posterizing dunk by Derrick Favors on Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova.
