SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Utah Jazz hold a three-point edge against the Sacramento Kings at halftime Tuesday.

Devin Harris leads Utah with nine points, and Josh Howard, starting for injured Raja Bell (adductor), has eight.

Four other Jazz players have at least five points for the 15-17 team that lost three games going into the All-Star break.

DeMarcus Cousins tops all scorers with 10 points for the Kings (11-22).

The home team got a nice lift off the bench from Jimmer Fredette, who scored five points including a 3-pointer. The former BYU star and NCAA player of the year also had two assists for the Kings.
