Utah Jazz and Mitchell mark territory: 7th straight win

The Salt Lake City franchise beats the Pelicans with 36 points (6/8 on the triple) from shooting guard. Willy Hernangómez, two points in two minutes.


Utah Jazz is intractable. The Salt Lake City franchise this morning linked its seventh consecutive victory (best active record in the NBA) after defeating New Orleans Pelicans (129-118). The victory places them in the second position of the Western Conference with a balance of 11 wins and only 4 losses. Only the two Los Angeles teams, Lakers and Clippers, have so few defeats to them ... although the reigning champions have played one more game.

And they did it with a splendid Donovan Mitchell. The guard scored 36 points (6 of 8 in triples) to which he added 7 rebounds and 5 assists. No one came close to his performance. Not even Zion Williamson, who completed his eighth game above 20 goals with 27 and a good shot card: 9 out of 14. He continues his growth within the League and with a team in which every step forward is titanic ... it's even the prelude to giving two back. We will see where this new path ends with the power forward. The Spanish Willy Hernangómez was only on the court for two minutes and managed to hit his only shot for 2 goals.Donovan Mitchell's performance

The Pelicans started bossy: 31-43 in the first quarter. However, little by little, they were losing splendor to the benefit of Jazz where Rudy Gobert finished with a double-double (12 + 11) and Conley shot up to 20 points for a set in the interim 24 minutes 49-69. Checkmate and second loss in a row for New Orleans against Utah.
