AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Al Jefferson scored 10 of his 20 points in the third quarter, and the Utah Jazz rallied to beat the Detroit Pistons 90-87 on Saturday night. Detroit's Brandon Knight missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have tied the game after the Pistons trailed by 13 points with 3:26 left. Jefferson helped the Jazz outscore Detroit 25-11 in the third, powering them to their first lead after trailing by as many as 15 points. Utah also put together a 17-3 run after Austin Daye's 3-pointer with 8:38 left gave the Pistons the lead for the last time. There was one comeback left, and it came up just short.

Knight and Pistons coaches lobbied for a foul, but didn't get what they wanted. The Jazz (20-19) avoided falling under .500 and into a last-place tie with Minnesota in the Northwest Division. D...
