Deron Williams scored a career-high 42 points, including a go-ahead jumper from the top of the key with 1.1 seconds left in overtime, and the Utah Jazz pulled into second place in the Western Conference with a wild 140-139 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
Utah overcame 45 points by Kevin Durant, who thought he was
fouled on a 3-pointer just before the buzzer that would have won it
for the Thunder. Durant and several teammates stayed on the court
pleading for a call that never came before the officials were
escorted to the tunnel by security.
Durant hit four of his seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as
the Thunder rallied to force overtime.
Carlos Boozer had 28 points and 15 rebounds for Utah. Williams
finished with 10 assists.
