CLEVELAND — (AP) Donovan Mitchell scored 27 points and the Utah Jazz rolled to a 117-87 win over the injury-depleted Cleveland Cavaliers, wrapping up their six-game road trip.

Utah (7-4) was scheduled to play Wednesday at Washington, but the NBA postponed the game because the Wizards do not have the minimum eight available players. Jordan Clarkson had 21 points and eight rebounds off the bench and Bojan Bogdanovic added 20 points for the Jazz, who made 24 3-pointers.

Cedi Osman paced Cleveland (5-7) with 17 points and six assists. Rookie forward Isaac Okoro and Damyean Dotson had 11 points apiece for the Cavs, who failed to score 100 for the ninth straight game and have lost three in a row.

Cleveland's Andre Drummond, the NBA's leading rebounder, was ruled out just before tipoff with an Achilles bruise. Collin Sexton missed his fourth straight game with a sprained ankle, joining Kevin Love, Darius Garland, and a slew of other contributors who are suffering from various injuries.

The Cavs are next scheduled to take on the New York Knicks Friday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
