ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Jamaal Tinsley connected on a go-ahead 3-pointer with 2:24 left Sunday, capping a comeback that carried the Utah Jazz to a 97-93 win over Orlando.

The Jazz trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half but caught up early in the fourth quarter and finally forged ahead for good on Tinsley's shot, earning a 2-2 split on their four-game road trip.

Tinsley, subbing for Mo Williams (injured thumb), finished with 11 points and four assists. Paul Millsap led the Jazz with 18 points. Gordon Hayward added 17 on 7-of-10 shooting for Utah.

Orlando, meanwhile, lost its second straight in the absence of Glen Davis (shoulder).

Arron Afflalo (20 points) and Nikola Vucevic (16, 16 rebounds) paced the Magic.
