Joe Ingles' Utah Jazz have made a dramatic comeback to beat New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA restart's opening game.
The Jazz won 106-104 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida on Thursday.
The Pelicans led for most of the game and were up by seven points with six minutes to go, but the Jazz, led by Donovan Mitchell who had 20 points, were too strong down the stretch.
Ingles had 13 points but showed some rust with five turnovers.
The Pelicans' Brandon Ingram (equal game-high 23 points) had a chance to win the game with a final three-pointer but it bounced off the rim.
New Orleans' rookie star Zion Williamson played just 15 minutes and had 13 points as the Pelicans eased him back after being forced to leave the bubble for a family emergency last week.
It was the first game since March 11 when the NBA shut the season down after Jazz centre Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19.
Before the game the Jazz, Pelicans, coaches and referees knelt and bowed their heads during the playing of the American anthem in a statement against racism and social injustice.
The players also wore statements on the back of their jerseys.
Ingles had "Ally" to symbolise his support for teammates and the US-Australian alliance.
