Jazz keep hot streak going
Reserve Derrick Favors finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds as the Utah Jazz delivered another shooting night to remember with a 118-91 victory over the Houston Rockets on Friday.
Joe Ingles chipped in 18 points while Dante Exum also came off the bench to score 15, as five players reached double figures, proving once again that Utah’s unselfish offence is the defining aspect of their recent winning streak.
Two nights earlier, the Jazz had seven players in double figures in a win over San Antonio and have suddenly become a much different team to the one that struggled through a shooting slump for much of November.
Utah won for the fourth time in five contests and did it without star centre Rudy Gobert, who was ejected by the officials less than three minutes into the game.
