Jazz keep rolling despite turnovers, edge out Hornets

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Utah Jazz played one of their sloppier halves of the season committing, 14 first-half turnovers. They only average 15 per game normally.

Jazz point guard Deron Williams and coach Jerry Sloan both pointed to the careless start from tonight's game against the New Orleans Hornets as a way to get their streaking team beat.

But as the Jazz continues to pile up wins, they find a way to overcome issues as Utah toppled New Orleans 98-90 to pick up a solid set of back-to-back road wins against the Rockets and now the Hornets. Utah has to be considered one of the hottest teams, along with Cleveland, in the NBA as the Jazz are 15-2 in their last 17 games.

"It's just a sign of maturity and a sign of growing," Williams said. "We know what it takes now."

The Jazz committed 22 turnovers overall, but came out cleaner in the second half. Utah started the quarter on an 8-2 run through the first two minutes and never allowed the Hornets to take a lead the rest of the way.

"I was just trying to get everyone involved," Williams said. "I had the turnovers early and makes me a little tentative because I didn't want to keep doing it. Second half I just came out and wanted to be aggressive and get going a little bit."

Sloan added: "It's learning how to win and learning how to play things out. Our team hasn't really had to play things out. Our team hasn't really had to gut things out. I think they're doing a better job of having to do that and playing better defense at times and giving themselves a chance to win. If we tried to exchange baskets with them all of the time, it's much more difficult to win.

"It seemed like we ran our offense a little more crisp [to open the second half]. When we execute that way, 'bang, bang, bang,' and then Deron hit a couple of shots. But hey, they stayed after us and never gave up."

Hornets rookie Darren Collison, who scored 24 points and dished out nine assists, admitted the third-quarter run, though brief, served as the poison pill for New Orleans on Wednesday.

"I think it was in the third quarter when Deron Williams got it going and I take responsibility for that," Collison said.

The Jazz only committed two turnovers in the final quarter. It's the early flaws that still concern Sloan.

"They made us turn the ball over. You wonder how you can win a ball game with that many turnovers," Sloan said.

You can look to Paul Millsap coming off the bench as probably the No. 1 reason Utah stayed in the game through the sloppiness. Millsap came off the bench to go 11-for-13 from the floor for a team-high 24 points. He also added eight rebounds.

"When Paul is given a lot of minutes, he's always produced," Williams said, who scored 16 points along with 10 assists. "It's on coach to find him some time to get him out there. ... If it's Paul's night, you've got to ride with him."

Boozer added 16 points and 15 rebounds, while Mehmet Okur had 10 points in the win for Utah.

The Jazz are also .500 on the road for the first time Sloan can remember as Utah is 12-12 this season.

Is he satisfied with the mark?

"I don't get happy about anything," Sloan said. "That's when you get hit in the head in this business. When you think things are going well, things cave in on you."

Peja Stojakovic added to Collison's production with 24 points of his own. Marcus Thornton came off the bench to add 14 points for New Orleans.

David West was near invisible as he scored a mere five points in nearly 26 minutes. His minutes dropped Wednesday as he was riddled in foul trouble and turned the ball over six times.

The injuries continue to pile up for the Hornets as Darius Songaila sprained his right ankle in the third quarter and limped off the floor. His availability for the Hornets' next game Friday is uncertain. New Orleans is already missing Chris Paul with an injured ankle.
