SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After a poor third quarter, with the Houston Rockets outscoring the Jazz 32-23 to take a 76-76 lead, Utah answered with a 15-1 run to start the fourth quarter.

It started with Donovan Mitchell hitting a three-pointer, which was followed by a floating mid-range jumpshot by Ricky Rubio. Mitchell had a turnaround floater in the lane to give the Jazz a four-point lead just 90 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Mitchell went on to score 8 more points that almost blew the roof off of Vivint Smart Home Arena as the Jazz held an 91-80 lead.

Utah’s season is hanging in the balance with the Rockets leading the series 3-0 and trying to close out the Jazz on the road.

Mitchell’s 13 points in that three-minute run, put him up to a team-high 25 points. Rubio’s bucket gave him his 18th point of the game.

Chris Paul made one free-throw to score the only point for the Rockets on the Jazz run.

Mitchell finished with 34 points in Game 3, but missed the potential game-tying three-pointer in the final moments.
