Jazz break NBA record minus Ingles v Bucks

Donovan Mitchell scored 32 points and the Utah Jazz made a franchise-record 25 three-pointers to win 131-118 at Milwaukee on Friday night and hand the Bucks their first home loss of the season.

Utah (5-4) shot 25 of 53 from beyond the arc to snap a two-game skid after double-digit losses against the Nets and Knicks.

“That’s the team we have to be,” Mitchell said.

“We have to stay at that level. We can’t bring it against Milwaukee and not bring it against New York.”

Australia’s Joe Ingles didn’t play due to a sore right Achilles tendon, snapping what had been the NBA’s longest active streak of consecutive games played.

Ingles had appeared in 384 straight games and this marked the first game he missed since December 16, 2015.

“It makes you pause for a second and you reflect on what a streak of consecutive games like that means and what it says about Joe – his toughness, his commitment, the type of teammate he is,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said before the game.

“You pause and reflect for a second and you understand why you respect him like you do.”

Jordan Clarkson chipped in with 26 points off the bench, while Giannis Antetokounmpo had 35 points and eight rebounds for Milwaukee.

The Bucks (5-4) had won their first four home games by an average of 23.5 points.

In Boston, the hosts registered a 116-107 win over Washington, with Jayson Tatum’s 32 points helping the Celtics (7-3) record their fourth straight win.

Bradley Beal had 41 points and eight rebounds as the Wizards dropped to 2-7.

The Detroit Pistons improved to 2-7 after rallying from a 23-point deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns.

Jerami Grant had 31 points, 10 rebounds as the home side recorded a 110-105 overtime success.

In New Orleans, Gordon Hayward scored 26 points and Charlotte came back from an 18-point, second-quarter deficit to beat the Pelicans 118-110.

Zion Williamson scored 26 points for the hosts, who’ve lost three straight, all at home.

The game marked the first time brothers Lonzo and LaMelo Ball played against one another.

Christian Wood scored 22 points and tied a career high with 15 rebounds to lead the Houston Rockets to a 132-90 rout of Orlando.

The Rockets (3-4) had six players score at least 10 points, including James Harden, on a night they made a season-high 22 threes to snap a two-game skid.

In Memphis, Dillon Brooks scored 24 points and the Grizzlies held on to beat Brooklyn 115-110.

Brandon Clarke added 21 for Memphis (3-6), who got their first home win of the season.

Caris LeVert drained 43 points for the Nets (5-5), who were without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

At Madison Square Garden, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists and Oklahoma City beat New York 101-89.

RJ Barrett scored 19 points for the Knicks (5-4), who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
