SALT LAKE CITY -- The weather outside was frightful.
The action inside EnergySolutions Arena wasn't much better.
On a night when a winter storm dumped on the Wasatch Front, the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings - with their combined record of 8-30 - at times looked as sloppy as a cul-de-sac.
The two Western Conference cellar dwellers needed overtime before the Kings came away with a 112-102 victory in front of 16,500 cold, wet and largely disappointed fans on Saturday.
Utah blew a seven-point lead in the final 2:59 and Sacramento rookie Ben McLemore hit a 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds remaining to tie the game at 97-all. The Kings outscored the Jazz 15-5 in the overtime period.
Sacramento got 28 points from DeMarcus Cousins and 26 off the bench from point guard Isaiah Thomas.
The Jazz (4-18) have lost three in a row.
The Kings (5-13) ended a six-game losing skid.
Neither team shot better then 42 percent from the field and they combined for 26 turnovers.
Utah, playing without power forwards Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams, saw six players foul out.
Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 22 points on 6-for-17 shooting and rookie point guard Trey Burke added 19 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.
Alec Burks scored 19 points off the bench for the Jazz, who haven't won since Dec. 2.
The Jazz led by as many as 10 points in the first half and took a 50-47 lead into halftime.
Sacramento shot just 35 percent from the field in the first half; Utah shot 46 percent from the field but was just 7-for-12 from the free throw line.
Hayward's 3-pointer with 3:23 remaining in regulation gave the Jazz a 90-84 lead but the Kings rallied to score five points in the final 12 seconds.
Kings 112 112, Jazz 102
* BEST PLAY: Gordon Hayward does a Pete Maravich impersonation late in the first quarter when he takes a pass from Trey Burke on wing in front of Utah's bench, slashes and scoops to the hoop for a reverse layup. He's fouled by Ben McLemore and converts the three-point play to give the Jazz a 19-16 lead.
* BEST LINE: In a losing effort Burke flirted with a triple-double, scoring 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists.
* KEY STAT: The Kings outscored the Jazz 15-5 in the overtime period.
* SIDELINE MOMENT: Saturday's nasty snowstorm coupled with the fact neither the Jazz nor Kings are threatening to win a title this season made for a very small crowd at ESA. Consequentially, when Utah big man Andris Biedrins finally makes a free throw after missing his first three attempts, fans send up one of the biggest cheers of the night. Biedrins finished the first half 1-for-6 from the line.
* HISTORY LESSON: Saturday marked the 31st anniversary of the day in 1982 when the Jazz connected on all 39 free throw attempts in a 137-121 victory at Portland.
* INJURY REPORT: The Jazz went without two key power forwards, Derrick Favors (sore lower back) and Marvin Williams (sore right heel). Each has been listed as day-to-day. ... The Kings didn't have forward Carl Landry (left hip).
* ETC.: Hayward was just 1-for-4 from the field in the first quarter but was 5-for-5 from the free throw line and led the Jazz with seven points through the first 12 minutes. ... The Jazz led 24-23 after the first quarter and 50-47 at halftime. ... Richard Jefferson was 4-for-5 from the field in the first half, 3-for-3 from behind the 3-point line, and led the Jazz with 11 points at halftime. ... On the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a group of World War II veterans were in attendance at Saturday's game. When they appeared on the Jazz's new HD video boards, they receive a standing ovation.
*UP NEXT: The Jazz will play host to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.
