Philly struggled from long range, hitting only 5 of 26 trys from three, as well as from the foul line (64%).
Utah only shot 36% from the floor but won the battle on the boards and had 10 blocks as a team. Derrick Favors led the Jazz with 17 points, 15 rebounds, and 5 blocks. Trey Burke also chipped in 17 points while Gordon Hayward added 15 points and 5 rebounds.
The Sixers will challenge the Warriors (24-5) in Oakland on Tuesday. They will need a much more effective offense if they hope to hang with Golden State.
