NBA Roundup: Lakers slumps to 4th defeat in 5 games as red hot Utah compounds their woes

Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley each neared triple-doubles as the Utah Jazz who are the league’s most dominant force this season inflicts yet another defeat on the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jordan Clarkson also scored 18 points in his customary role off the bench in the 114-89 victory on Wednesday night in Salt Lake City.

Conley finished with 14 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists in the wake of being snubbed as an All-Star reserve, while Mitchell finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists in his first game since earning the second spot in the All-Star Game.

Rudy Gobert who was also named to his second All-Star team added 18 points with nine rebounds as the Utah Jazz eased to their 22nd win in 24 games. It is also the 20th time they have won by double digits.

Bojan Bogdanovic added 15 points – all on 3-pointers for Utah, which has the best record in franchise history to begin a season (26-6) and the NBA’s best mark so far.

LeBron James had little help from his teammates on a fairly poor scoring night which he totaled 19 points. The Lakers are also playing without Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder and eventually lost their fourth straight and fell for the fifth time in six games.
