Lyou New Orleans Pelicans could not complete the task of defeating two nights in a row Utah Jazz in his own house. With a well-learned lesson from what happened 24 hours before, the Salt Lake City team asserted their status as favorites on their court and prevailed comfortably (127-102) to those of Louisiana, who saw their streak of two consecutive wins broken.
- 127, Jazz- Bogdanovic (11), Gobert (6), Conley (20), Ingles (15) y Mitchell (21); Paschall (2), Gay (13), Whiteside (10), Clarkson (20), Forrest (4), Butler (5), Oni (-) y Hughes (-).
- 102, Pelicans- Ingram (11), Jones (6), Valanciunas (12), Graham (6) y Hart (6); Temple (6), Marshall (10), Hernangmez (10), Hayes (15), Lewis Jr (4), Satoransky (6), Alexander-Walker (10), Murphy III (6) y Alvarado (-).
Donovan Mitchell He was the best Jazz player with 21 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, showing that what happened the night before was nothing more than an accident and that these Jazz are far superior to the Pelicans, as they demonstrated during the first three quarters of a clash decided after 36 minutes.
Mike Conley y Jordan Clarkson accompanied the Jazz star escort with 20 points each, while Joe Ingles stayed at 15 in his fourth game as a starter this season. Too much arsenal for a Pelicans who were not ahead on the scoreboard beyond the initial 0-2.
The Jazz, with a 40 advantage
The Jazz, who had a 56% accuracy in field goals and 57% from the triple after scoring 20 shots of three (their best mark of the season), they took advantage of a 19-4 run in the first set to leave on the scoreboard and live a calm night in front of their audience.
Jaxson Hayes was the top scorer (15 points) of some Pelicans that had up to six players with double digits in scoring. Among them the Spanish stood out Willy Hernangmez that took hold in the New Orleans rotation after a start to the season in which it didn’t seem to fit into Willie Green’s plans.
- 76ers 120-121 Timberwolves
- Hawks 90-99 Knicks
- Nets 107-113 Suns
- Cavaliers 105-92 Magic
- Bulls 104-107 Heat
- Rockets 146-143 Hornets
- Mavericks 114-120 Wizards
- Jazz 127-105 Pelicans
The Spanish international played his fifth consecutive game and once again reached the double scoring digits with 10 points. Hernangmez came off the bench to play 18 minutes in which he scored five of the seven field goals he attempted. He also captured eight rebounds (three of them offensive) and distributed three assists. However, their numbers were insufficient to hurt the Jazz who had a 40-point lead at the beginning of the last quarter.
