PHILADELPHIA– The solution to a long losing streak? Play the 76ers.
The Utah Jazz ended a five-game skid on Saturday by defeating Philadelphia 104-92, sending the Sixers to their 16th straight loss.
Tony Wroten came off the bench for Philly to score a game-high 30 points, but it wasn’t enough. Gordon Hayward came in with 22 points, Alec Burks added 19 and both Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter provided double-doubles.
The matchup of rookie point guards went Utah’s way, with Trey Burke (Utah) scoring seven points and Michael Carter-Williams just four. The Jazz end their six-game road trip with a 1-5 record. They next host Atlanta on Monday in the return of long-time Jazz forward Paul Millsap.
