SALT LAKE CITY -- The last time forward Matt Harpring started a game was all the way back in the 2006-2007 season. Monday, he took full advantage of the opportunity in his start against the Los Angeles Clippers in place of injured guard C.J. Miles.

Miles was placed on the inactive list because his left index finger became swollen. The finger was dislocated about a week ago.

In the first half of Monday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Matt Harpring played 7 minutes, scoring 6 points on 3-5 shooting, had 2 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot.

Harpring's energy helped the Jazz build a 30-17 first quarter lead.

In the second half, Harpring's physical play drew a technical foul from Baron Davis. After both players bumped each other down low in the paint for position, Davis threw Harpring to the ground. Both Harpring and Davis were called for fouls, and Davis drew a technical foul as well.

Matt finished the game with 9 points and 4 rebounds, playing 8 minutes in the second half. The Jazz won 106-85.
