MANILA, Philippines – Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley showed the way as the Utah Jazz toppled the Golden State Warriors, 113-109, on Friday, November 22 (Saturday, November 23, Philippine time). 

Mitchell finished with 30 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists, while Conley delivered 27 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists for the Jazz, which improved to No. 5 in the Western Conference with a 10-5 record. 

Rudy Gobert frolicked in the paint with 8 points, 19 rebounds, and 7 blocks, as Bogdan Bogdanovic and Emmanuel Mudiay had 17 and 11 points, respectively, in the win that saw the Jazz hold on to the win. 

The Warriors outscored their foes 37-23 in the final quarter but the Jazz built a lead just enough to prevent a collosal meltdown. 

It was a balanced scoring attack for the Warriors with 7 players finishing in double figures, but their penchant for sharing the ball could not result in the win as they dropped to 3-14 for the worst NBA record. 

Alec Burks delivered 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals for the Warriors, Omari Spellman added 18 points, while Ky Bowman and Glenn Robinson III put up 17 points apiece in the losing cause. 

The Warriors have lost 8 of their last 10 games and hold the worst point differential in the league with -10.4 points. – Rappler.com
