SALT LAKE CITY — Lamar Stevens scored 15 of his career-high 23 points in the third quarter and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the short-handed Utah Jazz 111-91 on Wednesday night.

Darius Garland had his first triple-double with 11 points, a career-high 15 assists and a career-high 10 rebounds. Lauri Markkanen added 20 points, Kevin Love had 16, and Eric Mobley finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. Cleveland (24-18) improved to 3-1 on its six-game trip.

Former Cav Jordan Clarkson scored 22 points for the Jazz (28-14), Eric Paschall added 18 points, and Donovan Mitchell had 17. Utah lost its fourth consecutive game and suffered a wire-to-wire loss for the first time in 117 games.

The Jazz were without four players who are in the NBA's health and safety protocols, notably two-time All-Star center Rudy Gobert. Utah is now just 1-4 on the year when Gobert is not on the court.

The Cavaliers have just two games remaining on this west coast trip, beginning with the San Antonio Spurts Friday night.
