CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Trey Burke scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and the Utah Jazz snapped the Charlotte Bobcats' three-game winning streak with an 88-85 victory Saturday night.
Burke hit a 3-pointer with 1:38 left to put his team up by three and added a pair of free throws with 10 seconds remaining.
Gordon Hayward had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who had lost three of their past four games. Derrick Favors added 14 points.
Kemba Walker scored 20 points and Al Jefferson had 19 for the Bobcats, who were playing their fourth game in five nights. The victory would have gotten the Bobcats (13-15) back to .500 on the season.
At halftime, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan unveiled the team's new primary logo for when the team changes names to the Charlotte Hornets after this season.
