SALT LAKE CITY – Alec Burks scored 10 of his 26 points in the final two minutes to lift the Utah Jazz to a 105-100 win over the skidding Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
The game was tied at 91-91 when the Jazz looked to Burks to create some offense. The guard made a number of acrobatic drives to the basket and capped a personal 9-0 run with a soaring dunk to make it 100-91 with 22 seconds to play.
Utah's top scorer off the bench got to the free throw line with his aggressive play, making 13 of 14 from the stripe in 22 minutes of play. His clutch scoring extended Utah's winning streak to three and sent the Sixers to their ninth straight road loss to the Jazz.
Evan Turner scored 21 points and Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young had 19 apiece for Philadelphia, which lost its eighth straight.
