Brewer dazzles as Jazz beat Yi, Bucks

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ronnie Brewer continues to make a strong case for a starting spot.

Brewer had 28 points and five steals and Deron Williams scored 14 as the Utah Jazz coasted to a 92-78 preseason victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

All-Star center Mehmet Okur netted 12 points for the Jazz, who shot just 38 percent (29-of-76) from the floor and forced an eye-popping 30 turnovers.

Taken 14th overall in 2006, Brewer struggled to find consistent playing time in coach Jerry Sloan's rotation. The 6-7 swingman averaged just 4.6 points in 56 games during his rookie campaign.

Brewer's performance spoiled the home debut for Bucks rookie Yi Jianlian, who scored 13 points in his first preseason start on 6-of-13 shooting.

Still adjusting to the NBA, the 19-year-old ran the floor well when rested, but at times appeared fatigued and stood bent over with his hands on his knees, resulting in eight turnovers. Yi was selected sixth overall in June's draft.

Mo Williams scored 22 points and former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut added 10, seven rebounds and four blocks for the Bucks, who shot 41 percent (28-of-68).
