SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Coming off one of their most disappointing games of the season on Monday, the Utah Jazz rebounded Wednesday night with a 120-105 road victory over the lowly Sacramento Kings.

Turning point: Trailing 18-8 early on, the Jazz closed the first quarter on a 15-3 run to take a two-point lead into the second quarter. They led by 10 at halftime and 15 at the end of the third quarter.

The hero: Donovan Mitchell scored a game-high 34 points to lead Utah. Rodney Hood bounced back after a bad game Monday to add 25. Willie Cauley-Stein and Bogdan Bogdanovic combined for 51 to lead the Kings.
