Garland missed a potential game-winner with 2.9 seconds left as the Jazz, who got 35 points from Donovan Mitchell, survived Cleveland’s late surge for their fourth straight win, 109-108 over the Cavaliers on Sunday.
Garland scored 31 points, Allen added 17 points and 11 rebounds and rookie Evan Mobley had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Cavs, who were back at home after beating Dallas, Miami and Washington.
“I work on that shot every day,” said Garland, who has scored 30 points in consecutive games for the first time. He’s the first Cleveland player to score 30 points while reaching those other marks since LeBron James in 2018.
“Garland is going to be a hell of a player,” Mitchell said.
