Unlikely man off bench saves the day for Warriors in epic comeback win over Jazz

OK, maybe that’s going a little far, but the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz put on an absolute thriller on Friday night in a game that felt more like a playoff slugfest than the second game of the regular season. The Warriors capped their furious rally with a tip-in from Jonas Jerebko, of all people, in the final second to win 124-123 and erase a 16-point deficit. Jerebko’s putback came on a miss from Kevin Durant, who played a big part in helping the two-time defending champs rally back with his 38 points on a lethal 14-of-25 shooting line.
