Boozer Leads Jazz Over 76ers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 16 rebounds and Deron Williams played for the first time this season to lead the Utah Jazz past the Philadelphia 76ers 93-80 on Tuesday.

Williams had seven points and nine assists after missing the first six games because of a sprained left ankle he suffered in a preseason game Oct. 18 against Chicago. Williams averaged a double-double last season - 18.8 points and 10.5 assists - and was part of the United States' gold medal-winning men's basketball team at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Andrei Kirilenko and Ronnie Brewer added 16 points apiece for the Jazz, who improved to 6-1 and lead the Northwest division.

Brewer scored all of his points in the fourth quarter.

Andre Miller scored 25 points to lead Philadelphia.
