The Utah Jazz are playing more beautiful music recently, winning eight of their last nine games to surge in the Western Conference. Their last victory was a huge one, as they escaped the league-leading Phoenix Suns, 118-114 on Sunday night.
The Jazz used a balanced attack against the Suns, led by Donovan Mitchell who top-scored with 26 points and Jordan Clarkson who added 22 markers off the bench. As usual, Rudy Gobert took care of the defensive end, finishing with 16 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks.
After the win, which helped the Jazz improve to 38-22, Gobert couldn’t help but stan hard on his team (via ESPN).
“We’ve got so much talent, it’s hard to lose when we play that way.”
The Jazz definitely have one of the more dynamic rosters in the league, with enough depth to battle against the more star-studded squads. But apart from their talent, Gobert added that their desire to compete is what makes them an even more dangerous crew.
“More than the wins, it’s our mindset. The way we’re competing defensively and the way we play together offensively, is really the thing we can take away. When we play that way, we’re going to be in good shape every night.”
The Jazz got hit by injury problems early in the season, but with a healthy unit, they are now truly hitting the right notes.
