Hayward’s 22-footer with four seconds remaining gives the Jazz just enough for the victory, capping a fourth quarter rally.
Hayward led the way with 23 points, getting to the free throw line nine times and hitting every one of them. Marvin scored 20, Jefferson had 19 & 8, and Favors was a monster of the bench with 16 & 14.
Mo only played eight minutes before leaving the game with an injury.
The Kings led most of the way, behind Tyreke Evans’ 19 points and five assists. Marcus Thorton scored 18 and Aaron Brooks chipped in with 17.
Sacramento led by as many as 13 in the fourth quarter before the Jazz surged back for the win.
Tinsley played 31 minutes due to Mo’s injury, dishing out 12 assists but getting destroyed repeatedly on the defensive end several times throughout the night. To his credit, however, he did come up with a huge steal in the final minute when the game was tied, which set up Hayward’s game-winner.
Earl Watson made his 2012-13 debut, playing 10 minutes and recording two assists and two rebounds.
The Jazz are still a perfect 5-0 at home, and above .500 for the first time since the opener (7-6).
They’ll fly to Sacramento to play the Kings again tomorrow night.
Jazz player of the game: Gordon Hayward
