Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert led the way as the Utah Jazz produced a devastating second-half scoring display to rout a depleted Los Angeles Clippers 114-96 at the Staples Center.

Mitchell and Gobert combined for 47 points to give Utah a ninth straight victory and extend the team’s lead to 24-5 at the top of the Western Conference.

The Clippers, missing the injured Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, had scraped their way into a 51-46 lead at half-time, with 14 points from Lou Williams helping set up a five-point cushion.

But the Clippers’ hopes were snuffed out in a one-sided second half as Utah cut loose, outscoring the home team 68-45 in the third and fourth quarters.

Mitchell finished with 24 points while Gobert had 23. Jordan Clarkson delivered another useful cameo off the bench with 18 points including four three-pointers.
