Utah Jazz forward Jonas Jerebko (8) reacts after he was fouled by Washington Wizards guard Jodie Meeks (20) during an NBA basketball game at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017.

Everything went right for the Utah Jazz Monday night at Vivint Arena as they picked up their sixth straight win in convincing fashion over the Washington Wizards 116-69.

The turning point: Already off to a good start, the Jazz went on a 10-0 run over the final 2:19 of the first quarter and cruised from there.

3 keys:

  • Rudy Gobert returned from injury after an 11-game absence.
  • The Jazz shot over 56 percent from the field while the Wizards shot under 29 percent.
  • Utah won every major statistical category.
