Jazz pull away from Mavericks, stay perfect on the road

The Utah Jazz continued their hot road start to the season, beating the Dallas Mavericks 113-104 behind 23 points from Rudy Gobert.

On the second night of a back to back, the Jazz allowed the young Mavericks to hang around for three quarters, up just five going into the final period, but the Jazz built a double digit lead and held off the Mavs for their fourth road win of the season.

Donovan Mitchell had his third consecutive 20 point outing, averaging 26 points per game through three games of this four game road trip.

Two young bench players gave the Jazz significant minutes, as Georges Niang poured in 13 points on 4-5 shooting, and 2-3 three point attempts, while rookie Grayson Allen added 11 points on 3-3 shooting, including an impressive step back three pointer. If Niang and Allen can be consistent contributors, especially as floor spacers, the Jazz depth will be nearly unrivaled across the league.

The Jazz have a chance to go a perfect 4-0 on this road trip with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
