The Utah Jazz got its first road-win of the season by defeating the Toronto Raptors 140-133 in triple overtime, Monday night.
The Jazz did not lead in the first four quarters of regulation play. Down by three in the last few seconds of the clock ticking in the fourth quarter, Mo Williams unexpectedly found Al Jefferson behind the 3-point line. Jefferson's shot bounced around the rim and dropped, sending the game into overtime.
Utah led for the majority of the time in the first two overtimes but couldn't quite close the door on Toronto until the third overtime.
Paul Millsap led the Jazz in scoring with 34 points, nine boards and two blocks. He shot 3-4 from beyond the arc, including multiple 3-pointers in overtime. The Jazz had seven players who reached double-figures in scoring, including all five starters. Randy Foye had 20 points off the bench.
Toronto's DeMar DeRozen led all scorers with 37 on 16-33 shooting from the field. The Raptors had six players who reached double-figures in scoring.
The Jazz struggled to close out the Raptors due to stellar play on the glass. Toronto out-rebounded Utah 52-46 and grabbed 20 offensive boards.
