BOSTON (AP) - Ricky Rubio had 22 points, Donovan Mitchell added 17 points, nine assists and five rebounds, and the Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics 107-95. Jonas Jerebko and Rodney Hood also finished with 17 points for the Jazz, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Jazz center Rudy Gobert left the game early in the first quarter with a left knee injury after teammate Derrick Favors fell backward into his knee. Favors left in the second quarter after taking an errant elbow to the left eye.

BOSTON (AP) - Celtics guard Gordon Hayward says he is open to playing this season, but says it will depend on how fast he is able to heal and show progress as he works his way back from a broken left ankle. Hayward was at TD Garden for Boston's matchup with the Utah Jazz, the team he left this past summer in free agency after seven seasons to sign a four-year, $128 million contract with the Celtics. He was injured in Boston's season opener at Cleveland.

CHICAGO (AP) - Dikembe Dixson scored 19, Dominique Matthews added 18 and Illinois-Chicago led the entire second half in a 76-60 win over Dartmouth. The Flames (4-6) pulled away late with a 14-2 run that made it 76-55 on Dixson's free throw with 1:34 left before the Big Green (3-5) scored the final five points.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Kelsey Mitchell made four 3s and scored 22 points and No. 13 Ohio State scored 33 straight points to pull away for a 103-70 win over Dartmouth. The Buckeyes (10-2) led 58-51 with four minutes left in the third quarter and extended to 91-51 on Makayla Waterman's free throw with 6:30 left in the game. The Big Green (7-3) missed nine straight shots and committed seven turnovers during that stretch.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - Russian lugers Roman Repilov and Semen Pavlichenko won gold and silver at a World Cup race in Lake Placid. They then dedicated their results to their country. It was the best finish for Russia in any major international luge race at Mount Van Hoevenberg. And it comes with their country dealing with a massive doping scandal that could keep Repilov and Pavlichenko, and many other Russians, out of the Pyeongchang Olympics.
