Burks responded with a season-high 13 points, including eight in the fourth quarter.
"We needed to get some pace, we needed to get some scoring," Corbin said. "I was a little concerned with the speed of (Darren) Collison awhile on the point, but I thought Gordon and Alec did a good job of trying to stay between him and the basket. And it gave us a bunch on the offensive end."
Al Jefferson added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Utah (18-18), which has won both meetings with Dallas this season.
Dallas led by as many as eight points late in the third quarter after a 3-pointer by Nowitzki, but the Jazz fought back.
Burks' 3-pointer tied the score at 86 with 4:35 remaining, and Hayward's spinning layup after he stole the ball from Nowitzki gave Utah an 88-86 lead.
Al Jefferson then went at Elton Brand and got the call with 2:54 left and a technical on Brand. The Jazz sank 2 of 3 free throws to bump their lead to 90-86.
Hayward's fourth 3-pointer made it a seven-point Utah lead.
Nowitzki got the Mavs within three points but that's as close as they got as O.J. Mayo came up empty on several late shots. He finished with 13 points but was just 5 of 14 shooting, including 1 of 8 from beyond the arc and 0-5 in the fourth.
"It's difficult," Brand said of losing games late. "We're right there. We're playing much better; we just can't close out the game. That's our next step."
