BOSTON, Mass. – The Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics for the second time in eight days, 98-86.

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting. Jayson Tatum added 10 points as they were the only two players for Boston to score in double figures. The Celtics shot 38 percent from the field and just 15 percent from downtown.

Former Jazzman Gordon Hayward scored seven points.

Donovan Mitchell Leading The Way
