NBA: Jazz rally past depleted Spurs for 10th straight win

Posted By:
Utah Jazz star Derrick Favors

Los Angeles, February 13: The Utah Jazz trailed by eight points entering the fourth quarter against the San Antonio Spurs, but rallied to a 101-99 victory on Monday (February 12).

After getting outscored 29-15 in the third quarter, phenomenal rookie Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz bested the Spurs 32-22 in the fourth quarter.

Mitchell scored 25 points with seven rebounds and five assists, but he shot just nine of 28 from the floor. Joe Ingles added 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Derrick Favors scored 19 points with eight rebounds.

The Jazz (29-28) have now won 10 straight games to get back in the playoff picture.

All five Spurs starters scored in double figures, led by Pau Gasol's 15 points and 15 rebounds, but San Antonio did not have the firepower to win playing without Kawhi Leonard, Rudy Gay and All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge.

Injuries have started to catch up with the Spurs (35-23), who have now lost four out of their last five games.

JORDAN SHINES FOR CLIPPERS

DeAndre Jordan is still with the Clippers despite constant rumours linking him to other teams before last week's trade deadline, and he made his presence felt in a 114-101 win over the Nets. Jordan scored 16 points on eight-of-11 shooting and 17 rebounds.

HARDAWAY STRUGGLES

It is hard to pick on the Knicks right now given all their injury woes, but Tim Hardaway Jr. signed a monster contract this offseason and he was poor in Monday's 108-92 loss to the 76ers. Hardaway scored just nine points on four-of-16 shooting (0 for eight from three-point range) in 34 minutes.

RONDO REJECTION

Rajon Rondo got up for a powerful rejection.

Rondo helped lead the Pelicans to a 118-103 win over the Pistons by scoring eight points with eight assists and five rebounds.

MONDAY'S RESULTS

New Orleans Pelicans 118 - 103 Detroit Pistons

Philadelphia 76ers 108 - 92 New York Knicks

LA Clippers 114 - 101 Brooklyn Nets

Chicago Bulls 105 - 101 Orlando Magic

Utah Jazz 101 - 99 San Antonio Spurs

Golden State Warriors 129 - 83 Phoenix Suns

ROCKETS AT TIMBERWOLVES

Houston, led by MVP candidates James Harden and Chris Paul, have won eight straight games. The emergence of center Clint Capela has helped the Rockets against more physical teams, but Minnesota is 23-6 at home. Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns will be ready to pull off an upset.
