He got a welcomed surprise. Paul Millsap scored 18 points, Gordon Hayward added 17 and the Jazz survived a fourth-quarter rally to slip past the Magic 97-93 on Sunday night. Utah snapped a two-game losing streak with its fifth consecutive regular-season victory over Orlando. The Jazz played without point guard Mo Williams, who is out indefinitely after suffering a sprained right thumb in Saturday's loss to Miami.

Turnovers frustrate Magic again

One play does not define an entire game. It might be the postgame focus or the highlight seen on SportsCenter. But it was not the game. When Gustavo Ayon went to the foul line with 2.4 seconds left in the game and a two-point deficit after a brilliant transition drive and dish by Jameer Nelson, the game very much rested on Ayon's foul shots. Ayon entered the game shooting...
