Burke scores 23, Jazz hold on for 82-75 win over Bucks

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the NBA's best defensive teams all season and entered Saturday night's game against Utah holding opponents to 43.2 percent shooting - the third-best mark in the league.

The Jazz have turned up their defense since the All-Star break and allowed only one team to score more than 82 points in five games.

So it was no surprise they played a ragged game, combining for 45 turnovers and missing most of their shots as the Jazz held on for an 82-75 victory over Milwaukee.
