SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Los Angeles Clippers 106-85 Monday night to keep alive their slim hopes of climbing out of the no. 8 seed in the Western Conference.
Utah closes the regular season Tuesday night on the road against the top-seeded Lakers, the team the Jazz will face in the first round of the playoffs if they can't catch Dallas or New Orleans.
Deron Williams had 17 points and nine assists, and Paul Millsap finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz.
Marcus Camby had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who have lost eight of nine.
