[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the Orlando Magic last night and the Jazz did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 114-107 victory. The win bumps Utah's record up to 26-16 on the season, while the loss drags Orlando's down to 17-25. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Jazz. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.
An impressive performance from Elfrid Payton led all players in the contest and his 28 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 blocks and 2 steals in 39 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Payton, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Jazz. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Orlando back in the win column before too long.
At the helm for the Jazz in the victory was Rudy Gobert and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Payton, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Gobert posted 19 points, 19 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.
Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Jazz walking away victorious was Utah's ability to limit Orlando's offensive output. By holding the Magic to less than they usually produce the Jazz made their life considerably easier.
Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the while the visiting Magic will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
Payton 65.0 FP
Gobert 58.0 FP
Hayward 44.5 FP
