ATLANTA (ABC4 Sports) – The Utah Jazz just can’t put consecutive victories together.

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points, Taurean Prince added 17 and the Atlanta Hawks pulled away from the Jazz Monday night, 104-90.

Utah still hasn’t won back-to-back games since early December.

“There were times it looked like we didn’t want to play, including me,” said Donavan Mitchell, who was held to 13 points.”

The Jazz missed their first ten shots of the game, but stayed close throughout the first half, trailing 42-41 at the break.

The Hawks began to pull away late in the third quarter, closing with a 13-3 run for a 74-63 lead that was their largest to that point. Dewayne Dedmon knocked down a 3-pointer, Malcolm Delaney converted a four-point play and Schroder scored off a couple of drives.

It got totally out of hand at the start of the fourth as Atlanta led by as many as 26 in the final period.

Kent Bazemore and Marco Belinelli had 11 points apiece for Atlanta, which knocked down 12 of 26 from 3-point range. The Jazz, on the other hand, made only 4 of 15 from outside the stripe.

Alec Burks came off the bench to lead the Jazz with 17 points. Utah’s starters combined for just 40 points, led by Mitchell with 13.

The Jazz made a season-low four three-pointers and shot just 43 percent from the field.

Utah (19-28) next plays at Detroit Wednesday night.
