Whaley's tip-in with less than a second left lifts Utah

TORONTO (AP) -- Rookie Robert Whaley's tip-in with 0.8 seconds left in overtime lifted the Utah Jazz over the Toronto Raptors 102-101 on Wednesday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Rookie C.J. Miles, who led the Jazz with 14 points, sent the game into overtime with a 3-pointer with 2.4 seconds left.

Tierre Brown had 24 points and seven assists and rookie Charlie Villanueva added 15 points for the Raptors.

Villanueva, the seventh overall pick in the draft, gave Toronto a 101-100 lead with 17 seconds left in overtime by grabbing an offensive rebound and scoring. He also blocked Miles' short jumper with less than eight seconds left, but Whaley tipped in the winner. Whaley finished with eight points and eight rebounds.

Brown's attempt at the buzzer rimmed in and out.

Utah's Deron Williams, the third overall pick in the draft, had five turnovers in just 16 minutes. Toronto's Joey Graham, the 16th pick in the draft, didn't play in the second half because of left knee tendinitis.
