NBA Power Rankings: Utah Jazz riding NBA's longest win streak up the rankings


The most recent win, a road tilt against the Washington Wizards , involved a 15-point third quarter comeback while missing Donovan Mitchell .


CBS Sports, NBA.com , Rotoworld and the USA Today’s Sagarin ratings all have the Jazz behind only the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks .


Gobert leads the West in rebounds (14.4 per game), field goal percentage (67.3%) and screen assists (7.6) in addition to his typical defensive dominance.


Six players are averaging double figures over the nine-game streak, including five over 14 points per game, and their offensive rating leads the league at 121.9 over that stretch.


That’s nine in a row and 14 out of 15 for the Jazz after Sunday’s win over the Wizards, and Quin Snyder ’s squad leads the league in net rating since Dec. 19.


Rudy Gobert is cramming everything in sight of late, and Donavan Mitchell is cooking at point guard with Mike Conley out of the lineup.
