(AP) SALT LAKE CITY - Randy Foye had 20 points, including six in overtime, and the Utah Jazz defeated the Sacramento Kings 98-91 on Monday night.
Paul Millsap added 14, with a key block, step-back jumper and rebound in the extra session for the Jazz, who used an 8-0 fourth-quarter run to take the lead with 2:40 left in regulation.
Utah had a chance to win it in regulation, but big man Al Jefferson shot an air ball 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Jason Thompson led the Kings with a season-high 23 points, and Tyreke Evans added 20 but had a key turnover in overtime.
Sacramento played the second half without leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins, who was ejected for arguing with officials at midcourt during the halftime break.
Cousins started 4 of 4 and finished 5 of 8 with 10 points and six rebounds.
