The Utah Jazz lost a must-win game late to the Chicago Bulls who are one of the hottest teams in the East. Nikola Mirotic torched the Jazz with 29 points while Kris Dunn’s defense, and a big-time shot to close the game, put away the Jazz.
Donovan Mitchell was fantastic again scoring 32 points in 36 minutes. He continues to get better and better each game and should absolutely start getting nods for rookie of the year.
This loss stings for the Jazz coming off three days of rest and are starting one of their toughest stretches of the year. They really needed a victory against a below .500 team and come away empty. Something needs to change soon with lineups as the starting lineup continues to struggle.
