SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz continued their impressive play on Monday night.

They led the Charlotte Bobcats by as many as 44 points Monday on their way to a 94-66 win.

The Jazz have now won a season-best six games in a row. They’re the hottest team in the NBA, going 11-2 since the NBA all-star break.

Rookie Rodney Hood was a 5-5 from 3-point range and he finished with a career-high 24 points.  Gordon Hayward scored 18 points and Rudy Gobert had nine points and 22 rebounds.

The Jazz shot the ball extremely well as a team in the first half.  They hit 8 of 9 3-points in the first quarter and 12 of 15 in the first half, setting a franchise record for most 3-pointers in a half.

The 66 points scored by the Bobcats were a season low.

The Jazz (30-36) will play their next game at home against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
