SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz blew another 20 point lead on the road and fell to the Golden State Warriors 111-107.

The Jazz led by 21 with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter but gave up an 18-0 run over the next five and a half minutes to watch yet another massive lead slip away.

With the loss, the Jazz have now watched 15 double-digit leads result in losses this season.

First Quarter

The Jazz got off to a quick 7-0 start with the full starting lineup back and available for the second straight game.

Juancho Hernangomez continued to find himself in the rotation even with healthy Hassan Whiteside, taking the minutes of Rudy Gay.

Donovan Mitchell scored 11 points to lead the Jazz on 3-4 three-point shooting.

After one the Jazz led the Warriors 30-23.

Second Quarter

The Jazz lead exploded to 19 midday through the second quarter after jumping out to a 17-5 run, including a 14-0 run over the first 5:14 of the frame.

However, the Warriors answered with a 14-4 run to trim the Jazz lead to just 11 with 2:11 left in the half.

Mitchell ended up with 17 at the half while Jordan Poole had 19 to lead the Warriors.

At the half, the Jazz led the Warriors 58-45.

Third Quarter

The Jazz were able to hold onto their 13 point lead through the first six minutes of the second half behind some sharp shooting by Bojan Bogdanovic and a few favorable whistles.

The Warriors strung together a small push and trimmed the lead to seven on a Poole three with three minutes left to play in the third.

Through three Mitchell led the Jazz with 26 points while Poole and Klay Thompson had 24 for the Warriors.

After three the Jazz led the Warriors 87-81.

Fourth Quarter

The Jazz opened the fourth quarter on a 12-2 run to rebuild their lead to 16, an aspect of their games that have been missing in their previous 14 blown double-digit leads this season.

Mike Conley carried the Jazz offensively in the second half scoring 15 points in the second and third quarters and the Warriors’ defense focused more closely on Mitchell.

However, the Warriors quickly pieced together an 18-0 run over the next five and a half minutes to take a 105-103 lead with two and a half minutes left to play.

The Jazz got a stop and had the ball with a chance to take the lead with 20 seconds left on the clock, but Rudy Gobert threw the ball out of bounds on the outlet pass.

The Jazz fell to the Warriors 111-107.
