PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder isn’t keeping track of those wins just yet.
Utah’s winning streak stood at nine on Sunday night after defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 115-96. Donovan Mitchell scored 27 points and newcomer Jae Crowder had 15 in his Jazz debut.

“It’s nice that there’s a streak because it means we won, but as far as tallying things, no one is taking chalk and putting anything on the board, or carving something on a tree,” Snyder said. “We just need to play basketball, and that’s what we need to keep doing.”

Damian Lillard, coming off a 50-point game against Sacramento on Friday night, had 39 points…
