The Rudy Gobert franchise continues to fall in the Western Conference standings. The additions are increasingly salty and this is a very surprising thing for Utah Jazz. Salt Lake City, renowned for its defensive rigor, conceded Monday evening a third loss in as many matches, and the 131 points left to the Phoenix Suns (111-131) worry.

The results of the night The meeting marked the return of Ricky Rubio, a former Jazz resident, to the Vivint Smart Home Arena for the first time. The Spanish leader did not let the emotion, however present, overwhelm him during the game, on the contrary: his 22 points, 11 assists and above all 7 interceptions weighed particularly heavily against Utah. "& Nbsp;I know their game and I played with them for a while& nbsp; ”, added Rubio, aware of having taken advantage of this advantage to accumulate the stolen balloons. At his side, Devin Booker delivered a good match (24 points, 10 rebounds) while the Jazz has long held the shock through the free throw line (37 out of 43 in the exercise). The classification of the Western Conference 121.3 Over its last three games, Utah Jazz has averaged 121.3 points. With the exception of Donovan Mitchell, no other Jazz player was able to really influence the match. Rudy Gobert, skilful at throws (7 out of 8), had a second consecutive game without relief (13 points, 8 rebounds) and was especially little solicited (3 out of 5 in shooting only). Mike Conley (8 points) and Joe Ingles (9 points) were far too discreet. This collective failure has logically impacted Utah's ranking in the Western conference: the franchise is now fifth (36v-21d) and is found to look as well upwards – Denver, 2nd, is 3 wins – as downwards – Dallas, 7th, has only one less victory -. Proof that it is not yet time to panic, but above all to rediscover the game identity that had made Jazz a credible outsider before the break dedicated to the All-Star Game. 4 Utah has won only four of its last twelve games. Miami surprised, Orlando and Dallas winners Private of Jimmy Butler, absent for personal reasons, the Miami heat bowed to the Cleveland Cavaliers after extension (125-119, a.p.). The Florida franchise, which played nine, was overtaken by Kevin Porter Jr. (30 points) while Kevin Love validated a double-double (17 points, 14 rebounds). It also took an extension to Orlando to win among Brooklyn nets (115-113, a.p.), thanks in particular to Aaron Gordon (27 points, 10 rebounds). Dallas and Luka Doncic (20 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists) won fairly easily against Minnesota (139-123). After an excellent first quarter (40-14), the Los Angeles Clippers took place in front of Memphis grizzlies (124-97) behind Kawhi Leonard (25 points, 8 rebounds).
