MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Al Jefferson had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Paul Millsap scored 21 points to power the Utah Jazz to a 97-93 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

Jefferson helped the Jazz overcome a sluggish start against his former team to pick up a rare road win against a Western Conference opponent. The Jazz now have four wins in 17 road games in the West.

Derrick Williams had 24 points and a career-high 16 rebounds and Ricky Rubio had 18 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for the Timberwolves, who shot a season-low 34 percent.

Nikola Pekovic had 19 points and 13 rebounds and Luke Ridnour scored 18 points for Minnesota, which lost for the 16th time in 19 games.
