LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Al Jefferson had 31 points and 10 rebounds and the Utah Jazz beat the Los Angeles Clippers 103-95 Wednesday night, winning their fourth straight on the road.

Andre Kirilenko missed his first game of the season because of a lower back strain and reserve C.J. Miles also sat out because of flulike symptoms, leaving the Jazz vulnerable at small forward.
