Recap: Utah vs. Orlando

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Trey Burke buried a corner 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left to lift the Utah Jazz to an 89-88 win over the Orlando Magic on Saturday.

Derrick Favors made a layup to cut the Utah deficit to 87-86 with 12.5 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Gordon Hayward then fouled Arron Afflalo, who split a pair at the line to make it a two-point game with 12.5 ticks to go.

Afflalo missed the second attempt and Hayward raced up the floor, drove the lane and skipped it out to Burke, who knocked down the trey for the lead.

Orlando called a timeout to advance the ball to halfcourt, but the inbounds pass was tipped out of bounds with 0.4 seconds left. Afflalo's 3-point heave as time expired hit iron and Utah held on.

"We were down two and Coach (Tyrone Corbin) wanted us to get a quick two," said Burke on the final play. "(Hayward) drove on the baseline and found me in the corner. (Victor) Oladipo closed in hard, and I just tried to get the ball in there as much as possible and it dropped."

Richard Jefferson paced Utah with 21 points, while Burke scored eight of his 17 in the fourth and Hayward contributed 14 to snap Utah's six-game losing streak.

Favors deposited an 11-point, 12-rebound double-double and Enes Kanter added 11 points with 11 boards.

Oladipo netted 19 points, Afflalo had 18 and Nikola Vucevic scored 16 points with 13 rebounds in the setback, Orlando's eighth straight.

"We played hard the whole game," said Vucevic. "We started the game off a little slow, but we got back into it. We played well throughout the rest of the game."

The Magic lost for the seventh straight time against Utah and fell to 4-23 against Western Conference teams this season, including 0-14 on the road.

Utah led 27-16 after one quarter and brought a 49-43 lead into the halftime break.

Burke capped a 10-2 run to open the third quarter with a 3 to help the Jazz to their largest lead of the game, 59-45.

Utah, however, shot just 6-of-20, from the field in the quarter and led 66-61 entering the fourth.

Afflalo capped a 13-3 run with a triple at 4:07 of the final period to tie the game at 74-apiece.

Hayward knocked down a jumper with just over two minutes left to push Utah in front by two, but Maurice Harkless and Oladipo scored back-to-back buckets to give the Magic their first lead of the game before Burke's heroics down the stretch.
