Jazz offense in tune in high-scoring rout of Rockets

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- No, Jerry Sloan wasn't replaced by George Karl or Don Nelson for a night. It only seemed that way.

The Utah Jazz treated their game against the Houston Rockets on Saturday night like a track meet, something that's rarely been seen during Sloan's tenure with the Jazz. It certainly worked, as Utah set a few offensive season-highs, including one for points, in a 133-110 victory over the Rockets.

Deron Williams led Utah's breakneck pace, scoring 35 points on 13-for-17 shooting. He also had 13 assists and seven rebounds.

"I think it (pushing the pace) definitely benefited us," Williams said. "They're a team that likes to slow it down and get into a lot of sets and we were able to push the tempo a little bit and get out and run. We were having fun tonight."

The Jazz (38-21) were motivated after losing in Sacramento the previous night. Williams had a subpar game against the Kings, and he was in full-attack mode from the opening tip. The Rockets (29-29) didn't have anyone who could slow him down.

"He came out really looking to attack," Houston guard Kevin Martin said of Williams. "I was like 'you're feeling it tonight, huh' and he was like, 'you know, I just had a bad game last night,' and great players in this league, that's what they do."

Williams set a career-high for points in a quarter when he scored 20 in the first period against the Rockets. He intended to look for his shot a little more than usual to get into a rhythm.

"I've been a little passive to start games and that kind of hurts me because then it takes a while to get into a groove," Williams said. "I've passed up a lot of open shots, jumpers that I usually make. I told myself today I wasn't going to pass those up."

Williams scored 10 points on 4-for-16 shooting and had 13 assists against Sacramento on Friday.

"Last night he didn't play his best game," said Jazz forward Carlos Boozer, who had 18 points and eight rebounds. "Tonight he came back strong and started cooking. They didn't have a guy that could stay in front of him. He just kept taking it to them. When he can get by you, he's dangerous."

The Jazz followed Williams' lead. The pick-and-roll and methodical half-court sets were replaced by running-and-gunning for a night. They took shots early in the shot clock, ran after most Houston misses and took 25 3-pointers, which can sometimes be a sore spot with Sloan.

"I guess we need to shoot more threes," Sloan said to a laughing group of media members. "We shot the ball really well. I've always felt over the years in this business that you shoot much better the second night (of a back-to-back set) than the first night. I guess that's why we shot the ball so well."

The Jazz were deadly from just about everywhere in the half-court. Utah shot 67.5 percent against the Rockets, including 56 percent from 3-point range. The team's 52 made field goals was a season-high.

Utah's previous high for points this season was the 124 it scored against Phoenix on Jan. 25. The Jazz topped that total with 6:16 left in the game when Williams scored on a layup to give them a 125-100 lead.

The Jazz were explosive throughout the night. They made 12 of their first 13 shots. They didn't blow the game open early, however, because they were extremely sloppy with the ball. At one point in the first quarter, Utah was shooting 87.5 percent but was tied with Houston at 32-32 because it had committed a whopping nine turnovers.

Utah cleaned up its play while continuing to scorch the nets. The Jazz had just three total turnovers in the second and third periods, and it helped them build a 107-92 lead after three quarters.

"Just a very poor defensive effort," said Houston coach Rick Adelman. "I think they just took it to us. We weren't mentally tough enough to guard their cuts. They got it going."

The Jazz, who had season-highs in points in a half (70 in the first half) and made 3-pointers (14), also enjoyed success in the half-court. They dished 36 assists, and mostly took advantage of what the Rockets gave them.

On this night, the Rockets gave them the chance to get out and run and show they can win games in different ways.

"When we're scoring like that it shows we can play in a variety of ways," said Jazz forward Wesley Matthews, who had 18 points on 7-for-9 shooting. "I don't think we would have played like that if our shots weren't falling. We can do different types of styles and that's a testament to this team and their maturity and the talent level."
