Brandan Wright Starts at Center but Struggles vs. Jazz
USA TODAY Sports

Brandan Wright continued to start at center, but his slender frame was not a good fit for the Jazz’s bigger, more physical front line. Wright still played nearly 23 minutes. Meanwhile, Elton Brand, who returned after taking Friday night’s game off, looked recharged. He had 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks. “I’m fine with it,” he said of Friday’s down time. “Coach knew two, three days ago, I was going to be playing a lot of minutes. I’m a team guy. I always want to make my boss look smart. It worked. I even had a dunk.”
