Meanwhile, the Wizards have lost five straight after falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

The Rockets survived the Jazz in overtime despite blowing a 17-point first-half lead, while the Pelicans easily dismissed Utah with a 29-point victory in New Orleans.

After the losses, the Jazz road trip will ease up significantly with games against the Wizards, Charlotte Hornets, and Brooklyn Nets before facing the New York Knicks on Tuesday.

The Jazz currently sit at 22-23 and in the 10th seed in the West.
