Utah Jazz

With Donovan Mitchell back in Salt Lake City nursing a lower left back strain, the Utah Jazz knew they would have to find a way to make up for their star’s absence. 

While many assumed it would take a massive effort to replace Mitchell’s 25.1 points per game, the Jazz had other plans. Rather than trying to make up for what Mitchell brings to the Jazz on offense, Utah elected to get defensive. 

Limiting San Antonio to a rough shooting night on offense, the Jazz overcame a late Spurs push to win 110-104 on Monday night. Not only was it Utah’s fourth win in a row and 12th victory in their last 14 games, but it was also their seventh consecutive win on the road.

Jordan Clarkson came off the bench to play 32 minutes and led the Jazz in scoring with 23. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 19, Joe Ingles 17, Rudy Gobert 16, Hassan Whiteside  13, and Mike Conley 12.

The Jazz (24-9) travel to Portland (13-20) for a game tonight.
