Jazz keep hot streak go­ing

The Nation - - SPORT -

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.
