New York cut the deficit to 98-97 following a three-point play by Alec Burks. Mitchell fed Udoka Azubuike and Bogdanovic for baskets to preserve the lead for the Jazz. He grabbed an offensive rebound to set up the first, and stole the ball to set up the second.
He capped off a 7-0 run with a three-point play, putting Utah up 105-97 with 1:08 left.
The Jazz built a 10-point lead early in the third quarter when Azubuike dunked to put Utah up 68-58. Then the Jazz went cold on offense, scoring a single basket over a six-minute stretch. Utah missed 13 of 14 shots and committed five turnovers in that span, allowing for a run by the Knicks.
New York surged ahead behind a 24-2 outburst. Randle capped off the run with back-to-back baskets that gave the Knicks an 82-70 lead. He scored 15 points in the quarter.
