Jordan Clarkson scored a season-high 40 points to send the streaking Utah Jazz past the Philadelphia 76ers 134-123 in a matchup of conference leaders despite a career-best 42 points from Ben Simmons. Clarkson hit a career-high eight 3-pointers and Donovan Mitchell added 24 points to help the Jazz overcome an early 14-point deficit. Utah has won eight straight games and 19 of 20. Philadelphia was minus big man Joel Embiid, a late scratch because of back tightness. Playing without his All-Star running mate, Simmons had 12 assists and nine rebounds — barely missing a triple-double. Tobias Harris scored a season-high 36 points for the Sixers in a fast-paced game between championship hopefuls.

Good and bad news for the Philadelphia Flyers who have a handful of players remaining in COVID protocol. Another name has been added to that list Sunday, Travis Konecny.
