SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz ended their first quarter against the New Orleans Pelicans with a smooth buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Kyle Korver.

It was the 10th buzzer beater of the season for the Jazz.

Coming off a pick and roll, Jazz forward rifled pass to the corner for Kyle Korver, who did what he had done 2,321 times before and knocked down the triple.

Earlier in the season Korver came over to the Jazz for his second stint in Utah after being swapped for long-time Jazzman Alec Burks.
