A six-game winning streak came to an end on Saturday night as the Utah Jazz handed the Los Angeles Clippers its first loss in two weeks, 125-113.

Utah had six players score in double figures. The team was led by Donovan Mitchell who shot 9-of-16 from the field, 1-of-6 from behind the arc and 4-of-7 from the free throw line for 23 points.

The Jazz jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter and they never looked back. A string of baskets started falling for the Jazz when Rudy Gobert threw one down — his first of two first half dunks. Mitchell followed with a 16-foot jumper and Joe Ingles shot one from downtown to give Utah a 13-7 lead.

Ingles’ hand got hot in the final minute before halftime as he had back-to-back 3-pointers, and he didn’t stop there. In the third quarter, Ingles drained two from deep plus a layup in less than two minutes. He finished the night with a career-high 21 points.

Although the Jazz held a 25-point lead, their biggest advantage of the night, it diminished as the Clippers came within six points of tying the game with 1:19 on the clock. However, Los Angeles was unable to score for the remainder of the game, giving Utah the victory.

Up next, Utah will visit Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 22.
