The Utah Jazz are absolutely rolling at the moment. So much so that Milwaukee Bucks front man Giannis Antetokounmpo made a big call following their meeting on Friday evening, proclaiming them as the best team in the west currently. The Jazz proved that to him as they ran out to a 129-115 win, securing their sixth consecutive victory and their 17th from their last 18. Giannis led the scoring, with 29, but the Jazz are just so good at spreading out the scoring.
They had four players that had 24 points or more, with Rudy Gobert leading the way with 27 (and 12 rebounds). Joe Ingles had the same number of points while Donovan Mitchell had one less and Jordan Clarkson had 24 off the bench. Only one Buck- Brook Lopez- had more than 20 to join Giannis, leaving him isolated and ultimately on the losing end. That leaves them at 7-8 on the road and 16-10 overall while the Jazz improved to 21-5 on the season thus far.
