The Utah Jazz, who hold the best record in the NBA, trailed by 11 midway through the third quarter against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night. Utah was struggling to take care of the ball committing almost 20 turnovers in the first 30 minutes of game play. The defense was suspect as well allowing 67 Charlotte points in the first half. Midway through the third, the game flipped upside down when the Utah Jazz went on a 41-11 run that lasted through the fourth quarter.
Performers of the Night
Gobert scored 10 points on only 4 shots against the Hornets. It was his defense, however, that makes him one of our performers of the night. Gobert had six(!) blocks on Monday night.
Georges Niang was 7/7 from three against the Hornets. His seven threes were part of a franchise record 28 threes for the Jazz.
Mitchell was a major reason for Utah's turnaround in the second half. Like a few others, Mitchell struggled with turnovers and decision making in the first half. He turned things around and finished with 23 points and 8 assists.
