The last few months have simply been majestic for the Utah Jazz. Hardly able to be beaten, they bounce right back from defeats even when they do go down. They did just that on Monday night, dominating the Charlotte Hornets to win 132-110 following their loss to the Clippers a couple of days back. The win was keyed by the team’s hot shooting from outside the three-point arc. They made 28 three-pointers in total, with 19 of those being drained by players coming off the bench.
The 28 was a franchise record for them while the 19 is thought to be a new NBA record. 17 days prior they had set their team record for threes made against this very team, so there is a bit of bad luck for Charlotte against them it would appear. The Hornets had led at one stage by double digits, but a 26-2 run that utilized an abundance of threes eventually had Charlotte on their back foot. Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz, and all scorers, with 23 while Joe Ingles, Georges Niang, and Jordan Clarkson all had 20+ from the bench. Seven Jazz players scored at least ten. Six knocked down threes, with Ingles making seven on ten attempts to lead the way. Lonzo Ball and Gordon Hayward each had 21 for the Hornets in the loss.
