SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz put together their most complete game of the season and defeated the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Jazz had great play from both the starting lineup and the bench for a 106-104 victory over the Sixers on Wednesday, November 6.

Utah’s starters combined for 78 points in the win.

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 24 points. The Jazz guard has scored 24 points or more in seven of Utah’s eight games this season. Mitchell also recorded 5 rebounds and a game-high 8 assists including a baseball pass to Joe Ingles.

Bojan Bogdanovic added 20 points while Mike Conley posted 15 points.

Rudy Gobert anchored the Jazz’s defense against a Joel Embiid led Sixers squad. The Utah center recorded a double-double of 14 points and 16 rebounds.

Ingles led the Jazz’s second unit with 14 points off the bench.

The Jazz have struggled with turnovers in multiple games this season but they course-corrected on Wednesday winning the takeaways by three, 13-16.

Utah had multiple days off between games for the first time in the 2019-20 season and was able to practice and fix some of the problems that have ailed the team so far.

Philly guard Ben Simmons exited the game in the first half with a sore right shoulder. He didn’t return.

The Jazz held a 13-point led before Embiid and the Sixers fought back only to lose the game in the final minutes of the game.

Embiid led the 76ers with 27 points. He was 16-18 from the free-throw line.

However, the Jazz defense locked down and prevented the Sixers from reaching their season average of points per game by 10 points.

Utah outshot the Sixers on the night 46.1 percent to 41.3 percent.

The win over the Sixers was the most complete game by the Jazz this season.
