Sacramento, California (AFP) – Donovan Mitchell scored 26 points and Rudy Gobert added 21 points and 14 rebounds in his fifth straight brace as the Utah Jazz beat the Sacramento Kings 123-105 on Saturday night.
Mike Conley scored 17 points and Jordan Clarkson 16 in Utah’s third straight win by a wide margin.
The Jazz took a treble from Joe English early in the second quarter and never lost the lead again, in their sixth straight win against Sacramento.
Joubert had 8 of 12 shots from the field, increasing his NBA record of 51 consecutive games with 50% or more shots.
Richawn Holmes scored 22 points and seven rebounds for Sacramento. Kings lost seven out of eight.
Play was stopped for more than 10 minutes in the last quarter so staff could clean up the field after a drunk fan vomited on the field. The fan was taken away from his front row seat.
It happened when the Jazz were in the 12-2 streak early in the fourth quarter, and they were leading 96-82.
When play resumed, Utah returned to dominance. Joubert dipped in a short pass from Engels and Clarkson’s 3-pointer shot made it 105-87.
Hassan Whiteside scored on consecutive possessions and Michel followed him with another basket to extend the Jazz’s lead to 21.
Utah has won its last three games on 69 points, after beating Philadelphia with 35 and Toronto with 16 this week.
