WASH­ING­TON, Nov 7, (RTRS): Dono­van Mitchell recorded 24 points, eight as­sists and five re­bounds to lead the Utah Jazz to a 106-104 vic­tory over vis­it­ing Philadel­phia on Wed­nes­day night at Salt Lake City on a night the 76ers lost guard Ben Sim­mons to a shoul­der in­jury.

Bo­jan Bog­danovic added 20 points, six re­bounds and five as­sists, and Joe In­gles scored a sea­son-best 16 points off the bench as Utah halted a two-game slide. Mike Con­ley scored 15 points and Rudy Gobert con­trib­uted 14 points, 16 re­bounds and three steals.

Sim­mons had just two points in 10 min­utes be­fore de­part­ing with 5:20 left in the sec­ond quar­ter with right shoul­der sore­ness. He ap­peared to hurt the shoul­der ini­tially early in the first quar­ter when he banged it against the body of Utah de­fender Royce O’Neale. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Sim­mons sus­tained a sprained AC joint and will be re-eval­u­ated Thurs­day.

Lou Wil­liams also had 34 points to go with 11 as­sists, while Pa­trick Bev­er­ley con­trib­uted 20 points and 10 re­bounds. Leonard sat out his sec­ond con­test in eight games be­cause of “load man­age­ment.” Los An­ge­les has lost both con­tests.

An­dre Drum­mond had 27 points, 12 re­bounds and seven as­sists, and Tony Snell made all nine of his shot at­tempts while scor­ing a sea­son-high 24 points as hosts Detroit cruised past New York. Marki­eff Mor­ris sup­plied 22 points and five as­sists for the Pis­tons, who were once again with­out three of their top play­ers. All-Star for­ward Blake Griffin re­mained side­lined due to ham­string and knee in­juries. The team’s top point guards, Reg­gie Jack­son (back) and Der­rick Rose (ham­string), were also in street clothes.

The War­riors, down three starters (Stephen Curry, Dray­mond Green, D’An­gelo Rus­sell) due to in­jury, mus­tered an an­swer to every Rock­ets run un­til Harden led a 21-6 surge to close the first half.
