After Cleveland pulled ahead by one point in the final minute, Jazz guard Mo Williams drove to the paint and put up a layup that barely missed.

With the game clock nearly expiring, the Jazz were forced to foul Cavaliers guard Wayne Ellington who pushed the Cleveland lead up to three points. Mo Williams subsequently fired up a last second three-pointer that was just short as Utah fell to the Cavaliers, 104-101.

Utah led Cleveland by as many as 14 points in the second half. Behind all-star guard Kyrie Irving's second half showing, finishing with 20 points and 10 assists, Cleveland stole the momentum in the final minutes.

Gordon Hayward proved his case for the Jazz sixth-man by scoring a game-high 25 points for the Jazz. In his first game back from injury, Mo Williams finished with eight points and six assists.
