Gordon Hayward scored 21 points and C.J. Miles added 20 as the Utah Jazz held off a Sacramento rally Saturday night during a 96-93 victory over the Kings at EnergySolutions Arena.

Utah owned a 95-93 lead when former BYU star Jimmer Fredette took a 3-point shot that could have given Sacramento the lead. But he missed and the Jazz iced the win with a free throw.


The First: Jazz 27, Kings 26

After missing 11 straight, Gordon Hayward hits back-to-back 3-pointers. The Jazz take an 11-6 lead. But DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson go to work inside and Jimmer Fredette hits a late 3.

The Second: Jazz 49, Kings 47

The Kings fail to convert seven straight possessions. The Jazz build a 41-32 lead. Fredette's layup ends a 6-0 run, however, and Sacramento outscores Utah in the final three minutes, 13-6.

The Third: Jazz 78, Kings 67

The Jazz jump to a 56-49 lead, but the Kings counter with a 7-0 run. It's 56-56 when C.J. Miles scores seven quick points. Hayward follows with six points and an assist in a three-minute stretch.

The Fourth: Jazz 96, Kings 93

Rookie Alec Burks scores his first eight points of the game. His second 3 gives Utah a 90-78 lead with six minutes left. Sacramento rallies, however, and can take the lead. But Fredette misses a 3 with 4.2 seconds left.
