NBA Roundup: Donovan Mitchell leads Utah Jazz past a star-less Brooklyn Nets; Other NBA results

Donovan Mitchell contributed 27 points, seven assists, and six rebounds as his effort guided the NBA-leading team, Utah Jazz past the short-handed Brooklyn Nets 118-88 in Salt Lake City, as the Jazz secured their first three-game winning streak in a month.

James Harden who led the Nets to a 116-112 victory against Portland a night ago didn’t play against Utah because of a sore neck leaving the Nets, who had won 16 of 18, without stars Kevin Durant (hamstring) and Kyrie Irving (family matter) yet again.

Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic each assisted Mitchell with 18 points and Georges Niang added 15 for the Jazz. Those three and Mitchell combined for 17 three-pointers, including five apiece by Mitchell and Niang. Utah sank 23 of 55 from deep (41.8 percent), with 10 players draining at least one.

Alize Johnson led the Nets with 23 points and 15 rebounds while Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot topped Brooklyn’s starters with 14 points.

Rudy Gobert, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year and a candidate for his third honor, scored only eight points but pulled down 11 rebounds and blocked three shots.
