SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Mehmet Okur scored 22 points and hit consecutive late 3-pointers to boost the Utah Jazz past the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-107 on Tuesday night for their seventh straight home win.

Paul Millsap led Utah with 28 points and 15 rebounds and his dunk gave the Jazz a 97-89 lead midway through the fourth quarter.

The Wolves cut the lead the 97-96 on Randy Foye's 3-pointer. Al Jefferson, who had 25 points and eight rebounds, missed a jump hook and Okur grabbed the rebound. He then made his consecutive 3s and added a free throw.

Williams, who had 17 points and 11 assists, drained a jumper to expand the advantage to 106-97.

Ryan Gomes and Foye each had 19 points for Minnesota.
