Statistically, this seemed like a good play by the Jazz with the game tied and time running down — cut off Jimmy Butler attacking the basket, let Derrick Rose have the three. Rose is shooting 25 percent overall from three this season and is 2-of-6 from that zone of the court all season, let him beat you from there.
It’s a make-or-miss league, and Rose made it.
Then he took a bow.
The shot put the Bulls up three, but it didn’t end up being enough. Gordon Hayward was fouled at the other end, hit the first free throw, missed the second, but the rebound got away from Taj Gibson and Rodney Hood grabbed it, giving Utah another shot. Hayward drove again and scored, and the game was tied. Hayward missed a potential game winner but in overtime, the Jazz pulled away enough to get the 105-96 win.
