Ricky Rubio scores 29 as Jazz win 7th straight, 92-88”

Updates with new lead, quotes.

Rubio had 16 points at the half, while Gasol scored 13 for Memphis.

With Utah rolling to their seventh-straight win, Jazz fans have even more reason to smile, as Dante Exum edges closer to his return to the court.

Utah's latest win was hardly indicative of its recent play on offense.

Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood has been made available ahead of the February 8 trade deadline, with several teams, including the Thunder, Bulls, and Pistons, expressing interest.

After lighting up the scoreboard for the past week, the Jazz cooled off significantly in Memphis on Wednesday night-and they still came out on top.

"I thought we looked a little tired and sometimes that shows itself on offense", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "Sometimes that shows itself on offense, and really, we were able to play through that and still defend. That's what won us the game".

Ricky Rubio had 29 points and eight rebounds to lead Utah, while Rodney Hood scored 18. The Jazz never trailed, and they still held an 11-point lead early in the fourth.

Utah led by 11 in the fourth quarter, but Memphis cut it to 80-74 midway through the period. "We've been playing really well offensively in this win streak".

Andrew Harrison stuffed the stat sheet for the Grizzlies (18-36), finishing with 23 points, one rebound, four assists, two steals and two blocks. JaMychal Green and Dillon Brooks added 11 apiece. "And we recognize the odds, right?"

Jazz: Royce O'Neal, the rookie from Baylor, missed his first 3-pointer, ending a streak of converting five straight from outside the arc over the past two games.

Hood is averaging a career-high 16.8 points in 27.9 minutes per game. He responded with a bucket four separate times after Memphis pulled within three points. Utah's Rudy Gobert collected 12 rebounds and scored eight points.

Memphis held out leading scorer Tyreke Evans (19.5 points per game) for the fifth straight game as the franchise hopes to move him prior to Thursday's trading deadline. Harrison's previous career high was 21 points at Toronto on November 30, 2016. Gasol had three blocks and five assists.

Bickerstaff was called for two technical fouls in the fourth quarter of the game, including one for telling one of his players to ignore Davis. "But I think finally I got it to click and I'm feeling good".
