Bojan Bogdanovic led six Utah players in double figures with 23 points as the Jazz snapped the Golden State Warriors’ nine-game winning streak with a 111-85 victory on Wednesday in Salt Lake City.

Donovan Mitchell finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for Utah, which earned its fourth consecutive win. Reserve center Hassan Whiteside totaled 17 rebounds, nine points and seven blocked shots.

Golden State’s Jordan Poole scored 18 points and Steph Curry added 16 points, but they shot a combined 10-for-27 from the field on a night the Warriors made just 35.9 percent of their shots.

The Warriors played without Klay Thompson, who rested ahead of a Thursday home game against the New York Knicks. Both teams were without an injured frontcourt starter, Utah’s Rudy Gobert (calf) and Golden State’s Draymond Green (back).

Aside from a red-hot start to both halves, the Warriors were dominated by the Jazz, who outscored the visitors 111-72 after the first three minutes of the game.

The Warriors jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead — and that was before Curry even attempted a shot.

Udoka Azubuike finally got the Jazz on the board with a dunk that came shortly after Poole hit five consecutive free throws.

Utah used a 14-2 run to roar back and grab a 21-20 lead in the seesaw first quarter.

Utah surged the rest of the quarter to go into the fourth up 79-65. Mitchell capped an 8-0 run with back-to-back treys and Bogdanovic scored the final five of the quarter.
