Mitchell helps Jazz beat Pelicans for 7th straight win

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah Jazz got off to a tough start. Then Donovan Mitchell and company pushed their way right past the New Orleans Pelicans.

Mitchell scored a season-high 36 points, and the Jazz rallied to beat the Pelicans 129-118 on Thursday night for their seventh straight win.

"Every chance I got, just kept putting pressure on the defense and getting to the basket," Mitchell said. "I was able to get 13 quick and they focus on me so now the guys are open. Then guys are hitting shots, now they're not worried about me anymore - just a mind game in the sense."
