Utah Jazz dominate fourth quarter vs. Orlando Magic to extend win streak to five games

The Utah Jazz extend their win streak to five games after a 109-96 road win over the Orlando Magic and have now won 10 of their last 11.

Donovan Mitchell continued his recent good form, pouring in 32 points and six assists on an efficient 14-of-21 from the field and 4-of-7 from the three-point line.

Today's effort is the third time in the past five games Mitchell has scored 30+ points and the 11th time this season he's scored 30.


After leading by just one point heading into the fourth quarter, the Jazz scored 17 of the first 22 points in the period to take control of the game at 93-80 with 7:37 remaining.

Utah shot 12-of-24 (50%) from the field in the fourth, including 8-of-13 from deep, while the Magic connected on 8-of-19 (42.1%) from the field.

The Jazz caught fire from deep early in the fourth, with Mitchell starting the run, followed by three triples from Georges Niang and another from Ingles as they shared the ball and found the hot hand.

"Georges Niang man, he's come a long way in his career, being doubted and what not, I'm really happy for him," Mitchell said post-game .

"Nights like this just show valuable he is to our team. Not just Georges, but everybody, Emmanuel coming down running in transition, you got Joe knocking down what he does, Rudy running the lane, I think he had 17 or 18 boards, those are big, those are key and even Rayjon [Tucker] coming in, I think it's his second time in.

"That's the biggest thing, just trusting each other and going out there and doing our thing."

Gobert dominated the glass, recording 17 rebounds to go with eight points, while Bojan Bogdanovic added 14 points and Joe Ingles 11.

Niang finished with 15 points off the bench, while Emmanuel Mudiay added 12 as the Jazz bench outscored the Magic reserves 41-39.

Terrence Ross led the Magic bench with 24 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 22 points and 13 rebounds.
