Jazz stay hot, win 10th in row

Orlando Sentinel - - SCOREBOARD -

Joe In­gles matched his ca­reer high with 27 points, Rudy Gobert had 22 points and 18 re­bounds, and the Jazz ran their win­ning streak to 10 games by beat­ing the Nets 118-107 on Tues­day night in New York.

Dono­van Mitchell re­turned from a one-game ab­sence with an ill­ness to score 25 points — 14 in the fourth quar­ter — and Bo­jan Bog­danovic had 18 for the Jazz, who opened a 20-point lead and im­pres­sively turned back ev­ery at­tempt by the Nets to make it close.

Kyrie Irv­ing had 32 points and a sea­son-high 11 as­sists in his sec­ond game back from a shoul­der in­jury, but it mostly seemed he was try­ing to shoot the Nets back into a game the Jazz weren’t go­ing to let go of in what be­came their 15th win in 16 games.

Rose draws $25K fine: Pistons guard Der­rick Rose was fined $25,000 by the NBA for toss­ing a pen across the court dur­ing the end of his team’s loss to the Pelicans.

With 37 sec­onds left in OT and play stopped Mon­day night, Rose sat slumped on a court­side ta­ble and flung the pen into the stands. The Pelicans beat the Pistons 117-110.

Rose had 23 points and eight as­sists, but it was a costly and frus­trat­ing night. His bank shot tied the score at 100 in reg­u­la­tion with 30 sec­onds left, cap­ping the Pistons’ rally from 16 down with 11 min­utes re­main­ing. But in OT, Rose had two turnovers in the last 90 sec­onds.
