Jazz's Williams keeping Utah in home-court hunt


By Bradley Handwerger, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Utah's loss on Wednesday dropped the Jazz from second in the Western Conference to fifth.

The Jazz's 114-103 win Friday night over the Hornets only moved them up to fourth.

Such is life, in a conference where the difference between home-court in the first round and second and fifth is only one game.

For Utah (52-28), it was all about keeping pace with less than a week to play in the regular season.

And that meant making sure it picked up a win at the New Orleans Arena against a team long out of the playoffs and playing for pride.

Per usual, the brunt of Utah's push to stay within the home-court race fell upon the shoulders of Deron Williams.

After the Jazz led by only five points heading into the half, the spectacular point guard did his thing, rattling off nine straight points early in the third quarter, pushing a seven-point game to a 15-point game.

"First half I wasn't trying to be aggressive," said Williams, who finished with 27 points, 16 assists and only three turnovers. "I think I was passing a little bit more. We shot a real high percentage so I didn't feel like I needed to be as aggressive."

It was quite the change for Williams, who had seven of Utah's 26 turnovers in the Jazz's 113-96 loss to Houston two nights earlier and wanted to do nothing but forget about that.

"He knows that he didn't play well," Utah Head Coach Jerry Sloan said about Williams. "You don't have to run and tell him whenever he does that. He just comes out (the next game) and plays. That's what all great players do."

But great teams don't let happen, what happened next.

The Hornets (35-45) came back, cutting a deficit that was at one time 21 points to five points late in the fourth quarter.

"People don't understand how tough it is to play against these teams that are not in the playoffs," Sloan said.

Then again, Williams does understand that. He's why the Jazz still have a legitimate shot at ending the season at least in the top four of the Western Conference.

With the game suddenly anybody's to grab, he nailed a 3-pointer and then assisted on three consecutive positive possessions.

"There hasn't been a guy like him since Jason Kidd who could dominate a game," Hornets guard Morris Peterson said. "Not just scoring. He presents a lot of problems. He's a big point guard. He knows how to post up. He doesn't get the credit he deserves. I think he's one of the best point guards in the league."

The Jazz now head to Golden State for their final road game of the season. A win there and their season finale against Phoenix could be for home-court advantage in the first round.

There's a good chance Deron Williams will make sure Utah has that chance
