Boozer, Okur lead second-half rally as Jazz top Celtics


By Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- It didn't bode well for the Utah Jazz when their big men Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur combined for more fouls (five) than points (two) in the first half against Boston on Monday night.

Fortunately for the Jazz, Boozer and Okur quickly rebounded after halftime and led them to a 110-97 win. Boozer scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half and Okur finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds.

C.J. Miles also had a big game with 23 points for the Jazz (46-25), who avenged an embarrassing 19-point defeat to the Celtics (45-25) early in the season.

Utah trailed by as many as 12 points in the first half when Boozer and Okur were saddled with foul trouble. Boozer picked up his second foul with 3:38 left in the first quarter and sat for nearly the rest of the first half. Okur got his second foul less than a minute later and sat next to Boozer, waiting for the halftime break.

"It was tough in the first half for us big guys," Okur said. "It was a long first half for us big guys. In the second half, we didn't want to give up. We wanted to be active at the beginning, active on the defensive end, active on the glass. We stayed hungry."

The halftime break did wonders for both players. Okur had 11 points and seven boards in the third quarter. Boozer played the entire third quarter, contributing six points and six rebounds.

"I was so anxious (while sitting in the first half)," Boozer said. "I couldn't wait to play. I was just on the bench aching to get in there. In the second half, we came out like we were shot like a bullet out of a gun."

The Jazz scored the first nine points in the third quarter and took the lead for good when Okur hit a 3-pointer to put them up 56-54. Okur, who missed Utah's previous game against New Orleans on Saturday with a stomach ailment, also had two blocked shots in the third quarter that were converted into two points by Deron Williams and a 3-pointer by Miles.

Okur's second block came when he wasn't fooled by a move by Rajon Rondo in the paint, and Miles' 3-pointer started an 8-0 run that gave the Jazz their first double-digit lead of the game at 73-63.

Boozer had a big blocked shot of his own. He swatted a 3-point attempt by Ray Allen, then led a one-man fast break and dunked to give Utah a 95-81 lead with 6:41 remaining in the game.

"I knew they were going to throw it to Ray because they were looking for 3s at the moment and he was hot a little bit," Boozer said. "I just ran up and got a piece of it, and tried to sprint my butt off down the court and get an easy bucket. It worked out good for me."

The overall play of Boozer and Okur worked out pretty well for the Jazz in the second half.

"Boozer and Memo had some big blocks," Miles said. "Boozer being able to be on the floor without getting fouls allowed him to do what he does offensively, and it opened the whole game up and had everybody rolling."

The Jazz outscored the Celtics 33-19 in the third quarter, shot 5-for-8 from 3-point range in the period, and outrebounded Boston 16-8.

"They started the third quarter pretty electric," said Celtics forward Kevin Garnett. "You pretty much have to anticipate it. As many times as I've played here they have always been able to come back out. They came out with some energy, made shots and executed."

Utah's rally actually started in the second quarter. The Jazz scored the final seven points of the first half with Miles capping the scoring on a layup with 7.4 seconds left until halftime.

"We closed out the half terribly," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "Then the third quarter, we didn't get any stops, they scored every time down."

Williams almost single-handedly kept the Jazz from getting blown out in the first half. He had his 37th double-double of the season with 22 points and 11 assists. He had 13 points in the first half, and shot 11-for-11 from the free-throw line.

Utah lost at Boston 105-86 back on Nov. 11 in a game that the Celtics thoroughly dominated. Jazz players say it was a turning point in their season because it motivated them to play as a unit and defend the way Boston does.

The Jazz showed what lessons they learned from the Celtics on Monday night.

"Boston gave us a lesson in defense over there," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "Our guys did a better job tonight getting over screens. We couldn't get over screens over there. I thought everybody was focused to try and play the game together tonight."
