Behind Boozer and Williams, Jazz finally figure out Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- After three straight losses to the Timberwolves, Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer made sure that the Jazz ended their struggles with lowly Minnesota.

All of Utah's starters scored in double figures, but Williams and Boozer shouldered the load as the Jazz sweated out a 107-103 win over the Timberwolves at the Target Center.

Williams had 21 points and 12 assists while Boozer had 16 points and 12 rebounds as Utah got its first win against Minnesota this season, ending a three-game slide to the Wolves that spanned into late last season.

"It was a good win for us," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We have tremendous respect for what their team is. We have a tough time playing them."

After trailing 47-46 at halftime, Utah opened the third quarter with a quick 9-1 run. The Jazz seemed to have the win locked up before the fourth quarter thanks to a 10-0 run that featured eight straight points from Mehmet Okur and a C.J. Miles breakaway jam.

In the fourth quarter, Utah built its lead to 101-84 on a Boozer free throw with 4:40 left. Utah's sloppy play and nine straight points from Kevin Love got Minnesota back in the game and trimmed the Jazz lead to 105-102 with 37.6 to play.

WIth 14.9 seconds left, the Jazz came down the court and saw Okur miss a 3-pointer, but Boozer snared the offensive board and got the ball to Williams, who was fouled. Williams then made the second of his two free throws to help secure Utah's sixth road win.

"We did a lot of things that you can't do in a close ball game," Williams said. "We were up by a comfortable margin, by at least 14 points and then all of a sudden they start hitting some shots and we start missing some and have some turnovers and I thought 'Here we go again'."

"We had about three turnovers down the stretch, five in the fourth quarter, that's when you try to put a team away, when you have the lead," Sloan said. "That's easier said than done. We found that out with this team already."

As the league's fourth-best rebounding team, Minnesota used it's rebouding prowess to its advantage in two wins over Utah this season. Tonight, however, the Jazz established a strong presence in the paint early, grabbing seven offensive boards in the first quarter alone. They outrebounded Minnesota 42-38 and were tied with the Wolves in points-in-the-paint scoring.

Love, who is averaging 16.7 ppg and 13.7 rpg over the last seven games, did his part to keep Minnesota in the game. He had a career high nine assists and narrowly missed a triple-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

"I finally got some shots to go, so I didn't shoot too bad from the field and I knew I must have had 10-plus rebolunds, but I didn't know that I had nine (assists) until they told me after the game," Love said.

"He is a good player," Boozer said. "He plays well and he plays hard. He crashes the board offensively, very talented. For that team to have two guys the size of Al and him, that they can build around."
