Jazz 136, Timberwolves 130 (2OT): Trey Burke posted a career-high 32 points and added nine assists and seven rebounds as Utah outlasted Minnesota to snap a seven-game road losing streak.

Gordon Hayward racked up 23 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for Utah, which had dropped 21 of its previous 24 contests. Derrick Favors went off for 21 points and 12 boards while Jeremy Evans registered 18 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and three blocks for the Jazz.

Kevin Martin scored 22 of his season-high 36 points after the third quarter while Kevin Love added 19 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists to fall one helper short of a triple-double for the second straight game. Six other Timberwolves finished in double figures, including Ricky Rubio with 14 and Dante Cunningham with 13.

Each team had a shot to win it in the first extra period, but Love and Martin both missed shots in the final 35 seconds while Hayward came up short twice in the final moments. Burke drained a long 3-pointer with just over a minute left in the second overtime to make it 130-125 and added four free throws over the final 19 seconds to seal it.    

The Jazz built a 14-point advantage after one quarter and stretched the margin to 19 on a basket by Evans with just under nine minutes to go in the first half before Minnesota rolled off the next 15 points to get back into the contest. Martin gave the Timberwolves a brief lead with a 3-pointer midway through the third quarter and he scored Minnesota's last seven points in regulation to send the game into overtime.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Utah had lost the first three meetings this season by an average of 19.3 points. … Burke’s previous career-high point total was 30 against the Orlando Magic on Dec. 18. … The Timberwolves (40-42) dropped their final three games and came up short of securing their first non-losing season since going 44-38 in 2004-05.
