Up by 10 points at halftime to lowly Minnesota, it seemed the Utah Jazz were on their way to picking up an easy home win.
That's when disaster struck.
The Jazz repeatedly stumbled in the second half, and the end product was a disappointing 103-102 loss Friday evening inside the Energy Solutions Arena.
Utah had the ball with 2.4 seconds to go, but Deron Williams' desperation 15-foot jumper at the buzzer spun off the backboard and out, dropping the Jazz to 46-30 on the season.
With Williams leading the way, Utah led 56-46 at halftime and seemed to be in control.
However, Minnesota (22-54) came storming back in the second half.
The T-Wolves went on a 13-2 early in the third quarter and simply found ways to stick around the rest of the evening.
Minnesota forward Mike Miller's field goal with 32.9 seconds remaining put the T-Wolves up for good at 103-100, and they pulled out the unlikely road win when Williams' buzzer beater spun out.
Ryan Gomes and Rodney Carney each scored 25 points for Minnesota, while Williams led all scorers with 34 points.
Jazz starting forward C.J. Miles left the game at halftime with a dislocated left index finger and did not return in the second half. It is unclear whether he'll be available for Utah's next game at New Orleans on Sunday.
