NBA Game Summary - Charlotte at Utah



(Monday, December 30th)

Final Score: Utah 83, Charlotte 80

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Trey Burke totaled 21 points and five assists as the Utah Jazz came away with an 83-80 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.

Utah never trailed in the second half until Ramon Sessions and Kemba Walker made consecutive layups for a 77-76 Charlotte edge with 1:15 on the clock.

On the ensuing Utah touch, Gordon Hayward drove baseline and dropped off a pass for Derrick Favors, whose jam put the Jazz back on top. After the Bobcats came up empty, Burke's driving scoop layup as the shot clock expired made it 80-77, and Al Jefferson's open 3 from the top of the key missed long.

The Jazz then made 3-of-4 free throws before Jefferson's halfcourt heave was pure at the buzzer for the final margin.

Alec Burks scored 14 points off the bench for Utah, which has won two of three. Marvin Williams and Favors netted 13 points apiece, with Williams also grabbing 10 rebounds.

"I think a lot of these games for this young group of guys is about learning to finish games. Hopefully we will finish teams off without making it close and to be able to make plays down the stretch," Utah head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Gerald Henderson had 19 points and Jefferson and Walker each scored 18, as Charlotte lost for the fourth time in its last five tilts.

"It's a make-or-miss league and they made it and we missed. That's happened to us the last three nights," Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford said.

Trailing 63-53 after three quarters, Walker sparked a 12-2 Charlotte run to tie the score

Burke and Richard Jefferson hit triples to help Utah reclaim control, but Al Jefferson kept the Bobcats close with some of his patented mid-range moves before Walker's tip-in layup put Charlotte in front.

Earlier, the Bobcats managed just 13 second quarter points on 4-of-15 shooting as the Jazz built a 42-34 halftime edge.

Walker's layup cut Charlotte's deficit to five 3:40 into the third, but Burke scored five straight after a Williams 3-ball to keep the visitors at arm's length heading into the fourth.

Game Notes

Both teams scored 34 points in the paint ... Hayward and Richard Jefferson scored nine points each ... Favors matched a season-high with six turnovers. He also had six in an opening night loss to Oklahoma City.
