NEW YORK (ABC4 Sports) – After a thrilling come from behind win Friday night at Toronto, the Utah Jazz ran out of gas Saturday night against the New York Knicks.

Jalen Brunson scored 22 of his 38 points in the first half, Josh Hart had 11 points off the bench in his Knicks debut and New York outlasted the Jazz 126-120 on Saturday night.

Julius Randle added 31 for New York, which has won three of four to improve to 31-27. R.J. Barrett scored 20 points before fouling out, and Immanuel Quickley finished with 15.

Lauri Markkanen scored 29 points to lead the Jazz, who lost for the fourth time in five games. Jordan Clarkson had 24, Talen Horton-Tucker added 23 off the bench and Collin Sexton finished with 15.

“Sometimes it’s just the game gets away from you and you struggle with some of the details on the defensive end,” Jazz coach Will Hardy said. “Situational basketball is something we talk about a lot.”

Hart, acquired Wednesday night from Portland, made a quick impact on his new team while adding seven rebounds and four assists.

Hart snapped a 101-all tie with 6:44 left in the fourth with a corner 3 off a feed from Brunson — his former college teammate at Villanova. On the ensuing possession, Isaiah Hartenstein fouled Markkanen to prevent a dunk. After Utah’s power forward knocked down both free throws, Hartenstein’s follow dunk allowed New York to regain its three-point lead.

The teams traded baskets over the next two minutes, culminating with Clarkson’s 12-footer which tied it at 109.

“Madison Square Garden, it’s tied, four minutes left, the place is rocking,” Hardy said. “It’s a great environment for our team and we relish those moments. Obviously we wish we could have executed better down the stretch.”

Consecutive 3-pointers from Brunson and Barrett gave New York a 115-109 lead with 3:49 left. A few moments later, Randle’s third 3 extended the advantage to 118-109.

On New York’s next two possessions, Randle had a baseline dunk and found Hart with a cross-court pass that pushed the lead to 123-114.

“I like the way he’s attacking the basket,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said of Randle. “He’s attacking the rim and it sets up everything else for him. He knocks down a couple 3s (and) now they come up on him. He uses his quickness and strength really well.

“When I see his aggressiveness, I know we’re (going) to be hard to beat.”

The Jazz next play at Indiana Monday night.
