New Orleans
Utah

[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the Jazz did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 108-100 victory. The win bumps Utah's record up to 45-29 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 31-43. Though a win's a win and Jazz fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

Leading the way in one of the finest individual performances of the season was Anthony Davis. Davis's borderline-historic night of 36 points, 17 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 3 steals in 41 minutes will be remembered as one of the nights he truly displayed why he's held in such regard at the NBA level. Unfortunately for Davis, 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 New Orleans 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 Davis, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Gobert posted 20 points, 19 rebounds and 1 assists in the win.

Utah's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pelicans, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Jazz will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the Sacramento Kings while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Dallas Mavericks.
