Utah went on a 14-0 run over that stretch, turning a 1 point Wolves lead into a 13-point lead for the Jazz.

Zach LaVine was a perfect 7-of-7 from the floor in the first half of Friday night's game, including a buzzer-beating jumper right before the break.


LaVine made 19 straight 2-point shots, before he finally missed one. He finished the night 9-of-12 from the floor, and with 19 points.

3. Career high for KAT

Karl-Anthony Towns recorded his 24th double-double of the season and recorded a new career high with 32 points and 12 boards.
