SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Derrick Favors scored three of 19 points on clutch free throws late in the game Sunday and the Utah Jazz recorded a 105-103 comeback win over Denver.

The Jazz trailed by as many as 12 points in the third quarter, but went on a 14-0 run capped by 3-pointers from Randy Foye and Marvin Williams to grab the lead.

Favors' two foul shots with 41 seconds remaining put the Jazz ahead for good at 104-102 and he added another with 4 seconds left to seal the victory.

Favors finished with seven rebounds and two blocks while Al Jefferson pumped in 28 points for Utah.

The Nuggets, meanwhile, saw their four-game winning streak snapped despite 21 points and nine boards from Kenneth Faried.

Ty Lawson supplied 16 points and nine assists for Denver.
