SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Shawn Marion scored a season-high 22 points, including a late layup, as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Utah Jazz 94-91 Thursday night to snap a two-game losing streak and cool off the league’s hottest team.

The Mav (9-7) were coming off back-to-back last-possession losses to the Lakers and Clippers.

The Jazz (9-5) lost at home for only the second time all season, and second time in 10 games overall.

The Jazz were down by 13 in the second quarter and by 11 in the third before rallying.

Utah led by three early in the fourth after a dunk by C.J. Miles. The game was tied at 87 before Jason Terry hit a 3-pointer, and Marion a layup.

Al Jefferson led Utah with 22 points.
