Utah big Derrick Favors jammed home a rebound off of a miss from teammate Gordon Hayward with two seconds left to give the Jazz a hard-earned 105-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Utah took possession after a pair of free throws from Lakers forward Jordan Hill tied the game at 103-103. Hayward took his man off the dribble, but he could not finish the layup. But the Lakers neglected to box out Favors, who stuffed the game-winner home with authority.
