Video: Jazz's Trey Burke hits game-winning three-pointer to beat Magic

Trey Burke hit a game-winning three-pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining to lift the Jazz to an 89-88 victory over the Magic in Utah on Saturday.

With the final seconds ticking down and Orlando holding an 88-86 lead, Gordon Hayward drove the length of the court following a missed free throw by Arron Afflalo. Heading straight for the heart of Orlando's defense, Hayward drew four Magic players into the paint. As the clock hit five seconds, he swung a quick pass from the baseline to Burke, who was spotting up in the right corner. The rookie guard slid into the catch, set his feet and drained the three-pointer over fellow 2013 lottery pick Victor Oladipo, who rushed out to contest the shot.

A last-second three-point attempt by Afflalo was no good and Utah held on for the one-point victory.

Burke finished with 17 points (on 5-for-15 shooting), four assists and two rebounds. Richard Jefferson led Utah with a game-high 21 points (on 6-for-12 shooting), three rebounds and two assists.

Oladipo led the Magic with 19 points (on 5-for-14 shooting), six rebounds and four assists.  Afflalo chipped in 18 points (on 4-for-9 shooting), six assists and two rebounds.

Utah improved to 23-47 with the win. Orlando dropped to 19-51 with their eighth straight loss.
