SALT LAKE CITY –Β The Utah Jazz opened their six-game road trip with a 108-93 over the New York Knicks despite playing very shorthanded.

The Knicks shot just 4-11 inside the paint while the Jazz shot 3-6.

After one, the Jazz trailed the Knicks 31-26.

Second Quarter

The Jazz opened the second quarter on an 11-3 run fueled by Jordan Clarkson who found a rhythm in the paint.

Donovan Mitchell also had 18 first half points as the Jazz won the second quarter 34-22.

At the break, the Jazz led the Knicks 60-53.

Third Quarter

However, the Jazz offense also stagnated from the first half as they managed just 25 points of their own.

Rudy Gobert had eight points on the quarter including six made free-throws.

After three the Jazz led New York 85-73.

Fourth Quarter
