Bojan Bogdanovic snapped out of a recent scoring slump and sparked the Utah Jazz to a 114-106 win over Golden State Friday at Vivint Center in Salt Lake City.

Bogdanovic hit a go-ahead shot in the final two minutes, to go along with eight 3-pointers and a game-high 32 points. The Jazz forward was 8 of 13 from behind the arc.

Donovan Mitchell was next with 28 points for the Jazz (15-11), who picked up their third win in four games. Also, for Utah, Rudy Gobert had 15 points and 15 rebounds, Joe Ingles scored 13 points along with eight assists, and Royce O’Neale chipped in with 14 points.

Alec Burks was the Warriors’ top scorer with 24 points, followed by Damion Lee with 21 and D’Angelo Russell with 18. Marquese Chriss pulled down 13 rebounds, matching his career high.

Bogdanovic and Mitchell hit back-to-back 3’s with 1:18 left, putting Utah up 109-104. The Warriors (5-22) lost, despite outscoring Utah 52-12 in bench production, and holding a 48-43 rebounding edge.

Golden State led 31-22 in the second quarter, and led by as many as 13 with a 9-0 run that gave Golden State a 50-37 lead. The Jazz responded with a 14-4 third quarter run, fueled by back-to-back 3-pointers by Bogdanovic, putting Utah up 76-68.

A Russell 3 put Golden State up 91-88, capping a 7-0 run early in the fourth quarter.
