Jazz break franchise record for threes, snap two-game home losing streak

Utah beats San Antonio 139-105.

For the first time all season, the Jazz looked like what we expected. Dominant on both ends of the floor, Utah walloped San Antonio 139-105 behind a franchise record 20-33 three-point shooting effort.

While the newly added Kyle Korver contributed three triples, it wasn’t just the 37-year-old. 10 different Jazz men buried shots from deep. Ekpe Udoh, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert were the only ones not to strike from distance.

His finest three became an opportunity for a four-point play. Off an out-of-bounds play, Korver canned a shot over Marco Belinelli on a pass back from Favors.

Defensively, the Jazz were connected with deflections and steals leading to transition buckets. Utah finished with 12 steals and 13 fastbreak points.

Donovan Mitchell led the team with 20 points on 7-13 shooting.

If there’s any formula going forward it’s repeating this performance.
