SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Trey Burke scored 17 points, including a high-arcing 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining, to push the Utah Jazz past the Orlando Magic 89-88 on Saturday night.
With the Jazz trailing 88-86, Gordon Hayward dribbled through the center of the Magic defense and found Burke in the corner. The big shot snapped Utah’s six-game losing streak and extended Orlando’s skid to eight games.
Down the stretch, the game turned into a battle between Burke and Victor Oladipo, two rookies drafted in the top 10 of last summer’s draft.
Oladipo, the second selection, scored 19 points for the Magic. He made a jumper and then added two free throws with 21 seconds to play to give Orlando an 85-82 lead.
