Paul Millsap scored 18 points, Gordon Hayward added 17 and the Utah Jazz survived a fourth-quarter rally to slip past the Orlando Magic 97-93 on Sunday night.
Orlando cut the lead to one in the waning seconds, but came up empty at the foul line attempting to tie it.
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 with a thumb injury.
Arron Afflalo had 20 points, and Nik Vucevic added 16 points and 16 rebounds to lead Orlando, who has dropped back-to-back games since losing starting forward Glen Davis to a shoulder injury.
The loss also ended the Magic's three-game home winning streak.
