Jordan Farmar scored 13 of his 20 points during a 3:17 span of the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Lakers got double-digit scoring from three other reserves en route to a 108-94 preseason victory over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.

The Lakers' starting frontcourt of Pau Gasol, Nick Young and Shawne Williams had nine points each. Los Angeles (3-4) closed with an 11-0 run that included nine free throws, after Utah's Alec Burks cut the margin to 97-94 on a tip-in with 4:52 remaining.

The Jazz (2-4) had six players in double figures. Former Laker Brian Cook had 18 points, while Gordon Hayward added 15 and Burks 14.

The Lakers, returning from a trip to China in which they lost two games to the Golden State Warriors, overcame an early 12-point deficit and led 51-45 at halftime with 14 points by reserve swingman Wesley Johnson.
