SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Malik Beasley was feeling it from downtown in the fourth quarter against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.

In the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter, Malik Beasley hit four triples against the Hawks, which sparked a run. The first triple came early in the fourth to cut the Hawks’ lead to 90-88 with 11:11 left in the game.

His second three-pointer came with 9:32 remaining in the game to give the Jazz a 93-92 lead. The third three-pointer came with 5:49 left in the contest and put the Jazz ahead 103-98. The fourth triple came with 4:35 remaining in the game and extended Utah’s lead to 111-100.

Beasley finished with 18 points, five rebounds, and two steals on 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc.

Jazz Get First Taste Of The East

The Jazz have had a unique start to the season facing 12 consecutive Western Conference opponents.

NBA schedulers appeared to have given the Jazz a gauntlet of unwinnable games to open the year but the team has exceeded even the wildest expectations.

The Jazz are a perfect 5-0 in Utah and have a 4-3 record on the road, including consecutive wins away from home over the Lakers and the Clippers.

The team now faces the Hawks to open a three-game road stand, before back-to-back games against the Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday and Sunday.

Lauri Markkanen continued his strong play in Monday’s win over the Lakers finishing with 23 points on 10-15 shooting.

Jordan Clarkson added 22 points, four rebounds, and four assists.

Atlanta didn’t miss a beat without Trae Young in the lineup, handing the Milwaukee Bucks their first loss of the year 117-98.

Young is averaging 28.2 points and 9.4 assists but has struggled shooting the ball. The guard has knocked down just 38 percent of his field goal attempts including 32 percent of his threes.

Former Spurs star Dejounte Murray had 25 points in Young’s absence to lead the Hawks.

The Jazz and Hawks is televised on AT&T SportsNet and can be heard on 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone. The game will also be streamed on DirecTV Stream and FuboTV.
