Joe Ingles had the hot hand in Utah, leading the Jazz to a narrow 108-103 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Ingles poured in 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting, including 4-of-9 from beyond the arc, combining with Rudy Gobert, who posted 17 points and 15 rebounds in the win.

Utah got into their offensive rhythm early, with Kyle Korver knocking down a pair of early threes to help them take a 24-21 lead at the end of the first quarter, with Gobert dominating inside, grabbing eight of his 13 rebounds in the opening 12 minutes.

The Warriors hit back in the second thanks to Steph Curry who poured in 18 of his 32 points in the period on 6-of-8 shooting to cut the lead to one point at the half.

Utah, who shot 16-of-42 from the three-point line turned it on in the third, connecting on six threes, thanks to Korver, Crowder, Donovan Mitchell and Ingles to take a four-point lead into the fourth. They kept the pressure on, opening the period on a 9-2 run top take a 93-82 lead.

They kept the Warriors at bay for most of the quarter, until Kevin Durant cut the lead to 106-103 with a three-pointer with 1:12 remaining, missing a potential game-tying shot with 39 seconds to go.

Crowder finished with 18 points and Donovan Mitchell added 15 points on a poor shooting night, connecting on just 5-of-26 from the field.

Curry led the way for the Warriors with 32 points, while Kevin Durant added 30. Klay Thompson was the only other Warrior to crack double figures with 12 points on the night, shooting just 3-of-12 from the field.
