SALT LAKE CITY — Enes Kanter provided a spark off the bench, scoring a team-high 24 points to lead the Jazz to a 104-101 win over the Washington Wizards Saturday.

It was a much-needed win after the Jazz played poorly in two straight losses to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“We had two bad games against Minnesota,” Kanter said. “Today my coach gave me a lot of confidence, and we’ve practiced really hard.”

Kanter made 11 of his 13 shots from the field. Gordon Hayward added 16 points and Alec Burks chipped in 15 off the bench.

The Jazz are now 15-and-29.
