    SALT LAKE CITY -- Gordon Hayward had 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists to lead a balanced Utah Jazz offence in a 109-86 win over the slumping Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. Tyson Alualu Jersey . Richard Jefferson scored 17 points and Diante Garrett had a career-high 15 points as the Jazz had seven players with 10 points or more in Utahs largest margin of victory this season. The Jazz shot 57.5 per cent from the field, the highest mark of any Phoenix opponent this season. Gerald Green had 17 points and rookie Archie Goodwin matched his career-best with 16 for the Suns. Playing their only road game in a nine-game stretch, the Suns have been looking to improve their playoff position. However, with a third straight loss, Phoenix leads Memphis by just one-half game the eighth and final Western Conference berth. Hayward, mired in a shooting slump (31 per cent in his previous 13 games), made plays all over the court in this one. Some fans chanted to put Hayward back in the game to get his first-ever triple-double. He just smiled as he watched the Jazz play the last 6:15 of the runaway win. Goran Dragic did not dress due to a sprained ankle and the Suns missed his playmaking abilities. Dragic twisted his right ankle in the third quarter in a loss to Minnesota on Tuesday and will have the injury re-evaluated on Thursday. Ish Smith had 13 points and five assists but the Jazz didnt respect his outside shooting and the defence wasnt spread like it would have been with Dragic. The Suns were 6 of 19 on 3-pointers. The Jazz turned a five-point lead into a 72-57 advantage thanks a 12-2 run and a 5:08 stretch where they held the Suns without a field goal. The Jazz broke it open in the fourth quarter as Garrett showed the skills he wished the Suns could have seen last season. Garrett was a late pickup for the Jazz this season after playing 19 games for Phoenix in 2012-13. Garrett had 11 points in the first five minutes of the fourth period to push the Jazz lead to 95-73. Derrick Favours scored 15 points in his second game back from a hip injury and Alec Burks scored 15 and Jeremy Evans had 11 in reserve roles. The Jazz outscored the Suns 50-36 in the paint and were equally adept from beyond the arc, making 9 of 18 attempts. After allowing a 35-point fourth quarter against the Timberwolves on Tuesday, the Suns defence was again porous against the Jazz. Utah players often beat their Phoenix counterparts down the courts and were one step quicker to the hoop on drives. Though the Jazz are buried near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, the starting lineup of Jefferson, Marvin Williams, Favors, Hayward and Trey Burke improved to 18-9 on the season. NOTES: Morris got a technical in the third quarter for yelling at official Zach Zarba after he was called for a foul on Jeffersons attempted dunk. ... The Suns largest lead was one point. ... The Jazz outscored the Suns in every quarter. ... Utahs previous biggest win this season was in a 122-101 victory at Sacramento on Dec. 11. ... Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek played for the Jazz from 1994-2000 and served as an assistant coach with Utah from 2011-13. His No. 14 jersey number hangs in the rafters. Ernie Stautner Jersey .

But now that its over, Im glad he did.Teddy Bridgewater cut down on mistakes that have hindered him as a first-year quarterback, throwing for 241 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions for the Vikings in his fourth NFL start. The Vikings (3-5) improved to 2-2 in those games, with both wins coming on the road.The stunning end came after Minnesota extended the game on Blair Walshs 38-yard field goal on the final play of regulation.Barrs score came 17 seconds into the extra period, the quickest of any fumble return for a touchdown since regular-season overtime was instituted in 1974.Tampa Bay (1-6), playing for the first time since allowing Joe Flacco to throw five TD passes in the first 16 minutes of a 48-17 loss to Baltimore, fell to 0-4 at home. The Bucs have lost 16 straight games in which the opponent scored first.Coach Lovie Smith hoped last weeks bye would help his team return with a more competitive effort.Ideally thats not how we wanted to start it, as simple as that. We let one slip away. But after the disappointment, you still analyze where we are, and looking at our division were still in it, Smith said.At the end when you have a lead, youve got to be able to close it out, especially at home, Smith added. Late in the game we needed someone to step up.Mike Glennon threw a 7-yard pass to Seferian-Jenkins to give Tampa Bay a 13-10 lead with just over two minutes left in regulation. But the Bucs porous defence couldnt stop Bridgewater from pputting together a nine-play, 61-yard march to get the game into OT. Kameron Canaday Jersey. It was just one of those deals where we knew we had to go down and get some points, some way, somehow, Bridgewater said. The guys in the huddle, they believe in each other. ... That last drive, guys just made big plays for this team.I felt like we were in pretty good control of the ballgame most of the time, Zimmer said. During the week, the practices, we were humming pretty good defensively. I said: If we can continue to do these things, then we have a chance to be a good defensive football team. Were definitely not there yet, weve got a long way to go, but I think weve made pretty good strides since the beginning of the season.Many of the Bucs walked to the sideline with heads bowed, waiting for an officials replay review to confirm the game was over.Its a lot of ups and downs, a roller coaster, Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. Its not how you want to see a game end.

Jerick McKinnon rushed for 83 yards on 16 carries, and Cordarrelle Patterson had six receptions for 86 yards, including a couple of nice sideline grabs that helped Bridgewater out of tight situations.Predictably, the matchup of two of the leagues least-productive offences was low-scoring, even though Tampa Bays struggling defence entered ranked 32nd in yards allowed and yielding a league-high 34 points per game.Minnesota scored 29 total points in the losing streak, with Bridgewater throwing for one touchdown and five interceptions and being sacked 13 times in starts against Detroit and Buffalo.The Bucs finished with 225 yards total offence, 66 on the ground.
