It was a record-setting night for the Utah Jazz tonight.

But it was Jonas Jerebko who would have the last laugh when all was said and done.

After Kevin Durant missed a go-ahead jump shot in the final seconds of the fourth quarter, former Jazz forward Jonas Jerebko tipped in the game-winning bucket with just 0.3 seconds left, giving the Warriors a 124-123 win.

Jerebko, 31, was waived by the Utah Jazz in July before being picked up by the Warriors.

The Jazz made a franchise-record 19 3-pointers, including 10-of-16 in the 2nd quarter alone. But the Warriors were able to weather the storm and stage a comeback — led by the star power of Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.

KD was on fire all night. He led the way for the Warriors with 38 points, including 24 in the first half. He went 14-of-25 from the field, and 9-of-9 from the FT line.

Steph had a phenomenal night as well, knocking down five 3-pointers en route to a 31-point performance.

Draymond Green got into it with Rudy Gobert in the third quarter, earning him his first technical foul of the season.

The Warriors will now head to Denver to play the Nuggets this Sunday at 5:00pm. Be sure to catch all the action on 95.7 The Game.
