Jazz top Bulls in OT
SALT LAKE CITY -- Trey Burke made a key 3-pointer to help the Utah Jazz outlast Chicago 89-83 in overtime Monday night -- the Bulls' first game since learning Derrick Rose would again be lost for the season.
Burke, a rookie finally enjoying extensive playing time after spending most of the season recovering from finger surgery, had 14 points and six assists. He also had five turnovers and shot 5 for 17 but was on the court in clutch time directing the Jazz to their second win of the season.
Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 16 rebounds and Luol Deng added 24 points for the Bulls, who were exhausted in their fourth game in five nights and still processing the loss of Rose for the season.
Marvin Williams had 17 points and Gordon Hayward and Richard Jefferson each had 15 as the Jazz scored the first seven points of overtime.
Burke made a 3-pointer in overtime and then Hayward, who had a career-high 12 assists, threw an alley-oop to Jeremy Evans for a dunk that made it 85-78 with 1:24 left in the extra period.
Joakim Noah had 10 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who lost their fourth straight and are just 1-7 on the road.
With the game tied at 78, Hayward dribbled down the shot clock and launched a step-back, 16-foot jump shot that barely drew iron. Deng, who scored 11 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, missed a contested jumper and Boozer's follow attempt rimmed out at the regulation buzzer.
Rose was the only Bull who could consistently create his own shot and his teammates struggled to find good looks against Utah, shooting just 39 percent.
Rose lost his footing without contact while trying to change direction Friday against Portland, and had season-ending surgery for a torn meniscus on Monday morning.
