SACRAMENTO, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Richard Jefferson and Alec Burks each had three of Utah's 13 3-pointers Wednesday in sending the Jazz to a 122-101 victory over Sacramento.

Utah ended a four-game losing streak, won on the road for just the second time this season and at least temporarily avoided becoming the first team in the NBA with 20 losses.

The 122 points were easily the most scored this year by Utah, which began the season with eight straight setbacks.

The Jazz shot 53 percent from the field and made 13-of-23 from beyond the arc. Jefferson finished with 20 points and Burks had 17.

Utah outscored the Kings by nine points in the second period and by 12 in the third to create a one-sided contest.

The Kings, who had won two in a row, were led by DeMarcus Cousins with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
