Donovan Mitchell led the way for Utah with 26 points.

The Utah Jazz held off a late fightback from the Chicago Bulls to clinch a team-record 21st-straight home victory.

After trailing by 12 late in the third, the Bulls rallied in the fourth quarter behind a 25-point effort from Thaddeus Young to pull within three with just 26.7 seconds left.

However Donovan Mitchell and Royce O'Neale each drained free throws in the dying seconds to secure Utah's 113-106 victory.

Mitchell top-scored for the Jazz with 26, while Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 13 rebounds.

The Phoenix Suns added another dominant win to their impressive season, blowing out the Oklahoma City Thunder 140-103.

The result looked sealed as early as the first quarter, with the Suns racing out to a 30-point lead.

Phoenix cruised home from there, led by 32 points from Devin Booker.

A decimated Charlotte Hornets side put together their best game of the season, defeating the Indiana Pacers 114-97.

Despite missing three of their regular starting five, the Hornets rode the hot hand of Miles Bridges as they improved to fourth in the Eastern Conference.

Evan Fournier shot a career-high seven three-pointers to lift the Boston Celtics over the Houston Rockets 118-102.

Fournier finished with 23 points, while Robert Williams did not miss a single field goal as he contributed 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.

A late scoring explosion from Kyle Kuzma led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 21-point victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Kuzma posted 10 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter as the Lakers bounced back from their loss to the Milwaukee Bucks – who also picked up a 127-109 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors rounded out Friday's winners.
