BROOKLYN—Mo Williams scored 19 points, Al Jefferson had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-90 Tuesday night despite nearly throwing away the victory.

Utah turned it over on two inbounds passes in the final 31 seconds, the last leading to a Nets steal. They pushed it up and got a potential go-ahead 3-pointer from Gerald Wallace that missed. The Jazz escaped when Reggie Evans' follow shot was no good as time expired.

"All losses hurt regardless of the situation of them, especially against teams we are supposed to be taking care of and winning. When we look back in March and April at these games, that’s when they really show up on the sheet. Losing hurts, period. At home or on the road. It doesn’t matter where we are."
