SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Donovan Mitchell found his shooting touch at the right time for the Utah Jazz.
Mitchell scored 25 points, including a go-ahead jumper with 39.2 seconds left, and Utah extended its NBA-best winning streak to 10 games with a 101-99 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night.
Mitchell was just 9-for-28 from the field, but he delivered down the stretch. The rookie guard scored eight of Utah’s final nine points over the last 2:54 of the game. He hit a pair of go-ahead baskets and a free throw to give the Jazz the lead in the final minute after they trailed by as many as 13 points during the fourth quarter.
“You can’t think about the misses, that’s the biggest thing,” Mitchell said. “I was continuing to stay locked in and just stay focused and understand the shots eventually were going to fall. Fortunately, they did.”
Joe Ingles added 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists for Utah. Derrick Favors had 19 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.
