Ricky Rubio goes en fuego in Utah Jazz victory over the Los Angeles Lakers

Ricky Rubio esta en fuego!

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

With the Los Angeles Lakers shooting 50% from three and 48% from the field, the Utah Jazz needed someone to step up and Ricky Rubio answered the call.

Scoring 31 points with 6 rebounds and 8 assists, Ricky Rubio saved the Jazz from what would have been a devastating loss.

His counterpart, Donovan Mitchell, was also big scoring 26 while hitting 4/8 from three. The Jazz backcourt is gelling at the perfect time and has the chemistry to cause damage to whoever they play in the playoffs.

Rudy Gobert was as dominant as ever on defense. His stat line of 12 points, 16 rebounds and 5 assists was mammoth. Derrick Favors was his regular self with 15 points on 7/11 shooting.

All in all a good win for the Jazz who need every victory they can to get a better seed in the playoffs.
