SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz shot lights out from three-point range in a 125-105 preseason victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers hosted the Jazz at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 17.

Utah made 24 three-pointers on 52 attempts for 46.2 percent.

Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson led the Jazz with a game-high 20 points apiece and five made triples each.

In addition to Bogdanovic and Clarkson, the following players made a three-pointer in the win:

  • Royce O’Neale (1)
  • Mike Conley (4)
  • Donovan Mitchell (3)
  • Joe Ingles (1)
  • Georges Niang (2)
  • Elijah Hughes (1)
  • Miye Oni (2)

Had the contest been a week from now, the 24 mark would be a franchise regular season record. Instead, the threes will be a preseason record for the Jazz.

Overall, the Jazz shot 49.5 percent from the field compared to the Clippers’ 46.7 percent. Los Angeles was 50 percent on threes but only made 15.

The Clippers were led by Paul George’s 16 points.

Los Angeles fell to 0-3 in the preseason with the result.

With the victory, Utah finished the preseason with a perfect, 3-0 record.

The Jazz will open the regular season against the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday, December 23. Utah and Portland are slated to tip-off at 8 p.m. (MDT).
