SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Deron Williams had 11 points and 15 assists in 27 minutes in his return to the lineup, leading the Utah Jazz to a 117-100 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
Paul Millsap, who started in place of the injured Carlos Boozer, led Utah with a season-high 24 points and 16 rebounds. Mehmet Okur and Ronnie Brewer each added 21 points as the Jazz got back on the winning track in their second game of a four-game homestand.
Rudy Gay broke out of a shooting slump to score 27 points and O.J. Mayo had 22 on 10-15 shooting, but the Grizzlies lost their fourth straight and their eighth in nine games.
