SALT LAKE CITY - When the game is on the line, Trey Burke wants the ball. Even if he is shooting 38 per cent from the field overall this season, the Utah Jazz rookie always feels like his final shot is going in. "I still have confidence and believe I can make the big shot," Burke said. The rookie point guard scored 17 points, including a high-arcing 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining, to push the Jazz past the Orlando Magic 89-88 on Saturday night. With the Jazz trailing 88-86, Gordon Hayward dribbled through the centre of the Magic defence and found Burke in the corner. The decisive basket snapped Utahs six-game losing streak and extended Orlandos skid to eight games. "I had an ugly game, turned over the ball a couple of times and felt like I really needed to make it," Burke said. Down the stretch, the game turned into a battle between Burke and Victor Oladipo, two rookies drafted in the top 10 of last summers draft. Oladipo, the second selection, scored 19 points for the Magic. He made a jumper and then added two free throws with 21 seconds to play to give Orlando an 85-82 lead. Hayward, who had 14 points, made two free throws and then assisted Derrick Favours and Burke for the game-winner, all in the final 20 seconds. "They understood the pace. Gordon made a great pass to Trey in the corner, and he made the shot. Its great to see the young guys show a lot of character. We could have fell apart there," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. Despite his overall inaccuracy, Burke is 15 for 26 from beyond the arc in the final five minutes of closely contested games (within five points) this season. Richard Jefferson scored 17 of his 21 points in the first quarter and Favours, Enes Kanter and Diante Garrett all scored 11 for the Jazz. Aaron Afflalo scored 19 points for the Magic. He made three free throws in the final 20 seconds but his miss with 12 seconds left opened the door for Burke. Favors knocked the inbounds pass away after Burkes shot, leaving just 0.4 seconds on the clock. The Magic inbounded to Afflalo, who missed a desperation 26-footer that may have left his hands after the buzzer sounded anyway. At times, it seemed neither team wanted to win. There was no exceptional defence on display but both squads struggled to hit open shots, neither topping 40 per cent from the field. Burke, who was taken ninth and had some battles with Oladipo in college, saved his best for last. He was embarrassed on a couple of Oladipos drives to the hoop earlier in the game and made only five of his 15 shots. Just as he did at Michigan as the consensus national player of the year, Burke showed hes not afraid to take the big shot with two 3-pointers in the final three minutes. "Its a shot I work on a lot, specifically in that corner, and it fell for me," Burke said. Oladipo, meanwhile, also struggled with his shot, going 5 for 14. But had a far better performance than his three points while shooting a season-worst 1 of 12 in the 86-82 loss at Orlando in this seasons first matchup on Dec. 18. "Trey made a tough shot at the end but I did a great job of contesting it. Hes been big with big shots like that for a long time," Oladipo said. "We both are going to continue to get better. Theres definitely going to be more interesting games down the road in our careers." The Magic are 4-23 against Western Conference teams, including 0-14 on the road. Jefferson made four 3-pointers and had 17 points in the first quarter to spark the Jazz to lead by as many as 14 points in the first half before the Magic cut it to 49-43 at halftime. The Jazz have won seven in a row against the Magic, one of the few teams they can consistently beat these days. Orlando came along just at the right time for the Jazz, who had dropped 11 of 12, including six straight by an average of 14.0 points. The teams ineptitude was on full display even as the game was up for grabs. During a five-minute stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters, the teams combined for 12 empty offensive possessions. Jameer Nelson rested his sore left knee for the second straight game, giving Oladipo more opportunity to play. But the Magic were absent one more playmaker when they needed to make just one more play. Notes: The Jazz honoured the franchises first playoff team, which featured scorers Adrian Dantley and Darrell Griffith, Rickey Green and shot blocker Mark Eaton.

Left-handed reliever Boone Logan agreed to a $16.5 million, three-year contract on Friday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc hit back at mounting criticism of his team on Tuesday, predicting his star-studded squad will soon play the attractive football its fans crave and observers expect.PSG is unbeaten after 21 games, trailing league leader Marseille by one point, ahead of Wednesdays match at Lille.I couldnt care less about observers. Im beyond that. It doesnt interest me anymore, Blanc said. We accept the criticism. Were the first to say that, in terms of how were playing, theres still a lot of room for improvement. We agree, but you (the media) are going way too far and you know it.Despite boasting Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani, Lucas and Javier Pastore, PSG has struggled to break down teams in the French league.In last weekends dour 1-0 win over Nice, the team managed only two shots on target despite having Cavani and Ibrahimovic in attack.Even after nine straight wins, fans are still not seeing the feast of attacking football such an expensive, attack-minded side is expected to produce. Lucas, Pastore and defenders Thiago Silva and David Luiz all cost more 40 million euros ($50 million).PSG often relies on late winners from its star players, rather thann dominating sides over an entire match, and is prone to big lapses in form — as was the case against Nice and in last weeks 3-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League.ddddddddddddYou can probably say were not as dominant as we were last season. We have individual players who arent as good as they were last season and that has a bearing on the whole team, Blanc said. But I really think that in the future we will improve, I genuinely believe that.Ajax coach Frank de Boer said PSGs players were too nonchalant and said they struggle to concentrate.Blanc proudly points out that his players are nonetheless resilient.Theyre winning games and youre asking them why theyre playing badly. Theres reason to be annoyed, Blanc said. I cant imagine what its going to be like the day we lose.After the Lille match, PSG hosts Nantes on Saturday and then travels to play Barcelona in the Champions League next Wednesday, with both teams vying for first place in Group F.The Barcelona game is shaping up as a crucial one, and not just in deciding the group winner.We need this game to gauge our true level, Pastore told beIN sport television on Sunday.
