SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Derrick Favors scored a career-high 35 points, and the Utah Jazz rallied for a 122-119 overtime win against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

Favors converted a three-point play to help send the game to overtime, and then added six more points in the extra period. Favors had a layup off a pick-and-roll with Trey Burke with 17.1 seconds left, and George Hill missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Indiana wasted career-high 48 points from Paul George, who carried the offensive load for much of the night. But two missed jumpers down the stretch of regulation helped Utah come back.

Favors also grabbed 13 rebounds, and Gordon Hayward had 22 points, five rebounds and five assists. Burke added 19 points and seven assists.
