Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Donovan Mitchell scored 34 points, his third consecutive game with more than 30, to help the Utah Jazz drive away from the Chicago Bulls 110-102 on Saturday night.

The Bulls followed only 97-92 before Royce O & # 39; Neale and Joe Ingles beat back-to-back 3-pointers to make it 105-92 with 2:23 left.

Ingles, who had 16 points, waved goodbye as he left the field and gained the fifth victory of Utah in the last six games.

Zach Lavine scored 21 points and Lauri Markkanen added 16 for the Bulls, who left their seventh street.

The Jazz played their second game without their top three-point guards: Ricky Rubio, Dante Exum and Raul Neto.

But that only makes Mitchell more effective if he has the ball in his hands and can use his creativity to make photos. He had six assists.

Rudy Gobert scored 15 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and had a career-eight assistance.

Kyle Korver scored 16 points and passed Jason Terry to fourth in NBA history with 2,284 3-pointers. Ray Allen, Reggie Miller and Stephen Curry top the list.

Mitchell's recent tear corresponds to the Jazz that finally rises above 500 and repeats the remarkable second-half success of last season while their schedule was eventually softened.

The Bulls pushed the Jazz defensively under pressure and drove the track at Gobert without fear after losing Friday Friday from 146-109 to Golden State. In contrast to past losses when the Bulls' effort was called into question, Chicago played hard, but shots stopped halfway through the last quarter.

The Bulls surpassed the Jazz 54-32 while trying to reach the edge time after time.

Utah led 31-19 for Jabari Parker, who had played only one of the last 13 games, spurred a 16-2 with seven points to give the Bulls a 35-33 lead. Chicago kept the Jazz up to 35 percent and led at halftime 53-51.

TIP-INS

Bulls: Several media have reported that Chicago coach Jim Boylen has restructured his deal, which will result in a pay rise and a partial warranty for next season. … Robin Lopez and Wendell Carter each had technical errors in the second half. … Six Bulls scored in double digits.

Jazz: Jae Crowder became 1 for 13 and continues a slump in which he has shot 21 percent during his last five matches. … The Jazz also played a back-to-back set but both were at home. … O & # 39; Neale spent a career high with 11 rebounds.

NEXT ONE

Bulls: continue their five-game road trip on the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Jazz: Complete their four-game homestyle against Detroit on Monday.
