CHICAGO(AP) Carlos Boozer had 17 points and 15 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz beat the Chicago Bulls 88-80 in a preseason game on Saturday night despite losing Deron Williams to injury in the first quarter.
Williams left the game after falling awkwardly and spraining his left ankle. Williams had X-rays, which were negative, but he didn't return to the game.
Leading 68-64 early in the fourth quarter, the Jazz pulled away when Andrei Kirilenko's basket started an 8-1 run. Kirilenko scored six points in the spurt that put Utah up 76-65 with 7:07 left.
Kirilenko scored 18 points off the bench for the Jazz (3-3) and Paul Millsap added 14 points.
Williams pulled up for a 3-pointer midway through the opening period. He made contact with Chicago guard Derrick Rose when elevating for the shot and fell to the floor. Rose was called for a foul on the play.
Williams was carried off the court by two teammates as he grimaced in pain. He then left the floor for the locker room on a wheelchair.
Williams, who was on the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic team at the Beijing Olympics, has career averages of 15.3 points, 8.1 assists and 2.9 rebounds while appearing in a total of 242 of a possible 246 career games, including all 82 during the 2007-08 regular season.
Rose, the No. 1 overall pick, started and scored 11 points in 40 minutes. Tyrus Thomas, who fouled out in the fourth quarter, led the Bulls (1-4) with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Larry Hughes scored 10 points.
Chicago played without guard Ben Gordon, who was out with a jammed right toe.
The Bulls beat the Jazz on Friday night in a game played on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign.
