The Jazz haven’t lost since Nov. 26, when a one-point loss to the Pelicans in New Orleans may have given their season the boost it needed. They have won since, including a rematch win against New Orleans the following night, and have now won ten of their last twelve games.
“We’re just not playing well,” Donovan Mitchell said after the opening loss to the Pelicans. “I’m not playing well, we just aren’t – it doesn’t look good. I mean, you see, it doesn’t look good and it doesn’t feel good. “
Since then, Mitchell has been crying, scoring 36, 35, 34 and 30 points in the run-up to the game against Philadelphia. He finished the night against the Sixers with 22 points and 6 assists.

Of the team’s seven losses this season, two have come to the Heat, the rest against Orlando, Indiana, Memphis and New Orleans.
During this current six-game winning streak, the Jazz have the best offensive rating in the league at 128.6. In this same stretch, Utah is enjoying the spoils of the second best net rating in the league (17.8), behind only the Memphis Grizzlies.
Against Philadelphia, an opponent who had won three straight early in the game, with a rampant Joel Embiid to contend with, the Jazz played probably their best game of the season.
Offensive execution was good and they made good contributions across the board. Hassan Whiteside, in just his second game back from injury, had 14 points and 10 rebounds, while Rudy Gobert had 17 points and 21 rebounds.
