|Kirilenko Scores 7 in OT to Lift Jazz Past Sixers
|SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Andrei Kirilenko scored seven of his 16 points in overtime to lead the short-handed Utah Jazz to a 112-107 victory against Philadelphia on Monday night.
The Jazz led by as many as 21 points in the second quarter, 18 in the third and 15 in the fourth before Philadelphia rallied. The Sixers had a 103-101 lead with 11.5 seconds left in regulation thanks to a 14-point quarter by Andre Iguodala.
But C.J. Miles' driving layup tied it and Iguodala missed what would have been the game-winner.
Kirilenko then took over, hitting a 3-pointer, putback dunk and two free throws to seal the win.
The Sixers haven't won in Utah since Jan. 5, 2005, losing 10 of the last 12 overall against the Jazz.
