Jazz win 11 straight as Mavericks run out of gas

Jazz win 11 straight as Mavericks run out of gas

by Daniel Olsen

No Donovan Mitchell or Derrick Favors? No problem.

In the second nationally televised game in as many weeks, the Jazz did not disappoint. Bojan Bogdanovic led the Jazz with 32 points in a convincing 120-101 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

It was their second victory in 48 hours over that same team. The dark mode city jerseys and scored matched the hot shooting from the Jazz. They were simply on fire.

Even the bench got going as Juwan Morgan made a rare appearance with 12 points to contribute. Clarkson led the second unit with 18 points.

It was another great shooting night beyond the arc as the Jazz recorded 20 made threes for the seventh time this season. Joe Ingles hit two of those three-pointers but it was his second one that got fans off their feet. That shot put him in sole possession of first place over John Stockton in the franchise made threes list.

It was another successful night for Rudy Gobert as he tallied his 13th double-double of the season. He currently ranks among the top five players in rebounds and blocks per game in the NBA.

With a sound sweep of the Mavericks, the Jazz have recorded their sixth straight double-digit victory. It is also their second time in this streak defeating the same opponent in consecutive games. They beat the Pelicans twice last week.

The Jazz look to extend the win streak to 12 games when they take on the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. The last time the Jazz won that many games in a row was in 2009. The game will be broadcast on NBA TV at 1:30 PM Mountain Time.
