The Jazz got an initial boost from their outside shooting starting in the first quarter. Utah hit six 3-pointers in the quarter and shot 60 percent from the perimeter. Ingles led the way, going 3-of-3 from long distance.

The long-distance marksmanship helped the Jazz surge ahead late in the first quarter. Utah used a 10-2 run, culminating in a second-chance dunk from Rudy Gobert, to stake out a 26-16 lead.

Golden State cut the deficit in half on back-to-back baskets from McGee before quarter's end. The Warriors closed to within 38-35 on a jumper from David West. Rubio and Favors scored baskets on three consecutive possessions to push Utah's lead to 44-35.

Ingles came through two more 3-pointers in the second quarter to keep the pressure on Golden State. The baskets helped fuel a 10-0 run that put the Jazz up 64-49.

"I can’t let Joe Ingles get loose on 3s like that and expect us to play well on the road, especially in here," Durant said. "I got to start off the game better if we want to win games."

Utah kept putting distance between itself and Golden State through the third quarter, thanks in large part to dominant play from Mitchell. The rookie guard scored 12 points in the quarter after foul trouble limited him to just nine minutes before halftime.

The Jazz led by as many as 21 points during the third quarter, going up 97-76 when Jonas Jerebko turned a steal into a layup.
