DENVER (AP) -- Gordon Hayward scored a season-high 30 points to go with a career-high 13 rebounds, Derrick Favors had 19 points and the Utah Jazz rallied after blowing a big third-quarter lead to beat the Denver Nuggets 103-93 Friday night.

Wilson Chandler and Jordan Hamilton had 17 apiece for the Nuggets.

The Nuggets struggled from the foul line, going 14 for 24, while the Jazz hit their first 13 free throws in going 19 of 20 from the line.

Denver fell to 6-3 on its home court after losing just three times at Pepsi Center all of last year.

The Nuggets trailed by 16 early in the third, but finished the quarter on a 26-8 run to go ahead by two. The lead grew to four before Utah responded.
