Jazz dominate Cavaliers in 115-99 victory

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah's resurgent ability to take over a game on defense is once again turning the Jazz into a difficult matchup for NBA teams.

It showed in a 115-99 victory over Cleveland on Friday night.

The Cavaliers hung around for barely a quarter before the Jazz imposed their will on defense. Utah forced Cleveland into bad shots, got into transition and kept the Cavaliers off the glass when it mattered. Ultimately, Cleveland (9-37) shot just 21 of 68 (.309) from the field over the first three quarters. It opened the door for Utah (26-21) to claim its sixth straight win and eighth in nine games.
