SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Deron Williams had 31 points and 11 assists and the Utah Jazz snapped the Los Angeles Lakers' seven-game winning streak with a 113-109 victory Wednesday night.

Mehmet Okur scored 22 points, C.J. Miles had 17 and Ronnie Brewer added 16 to give the injury-plagued Jazz their fourth win in the last five games.

Kobe Bryant scored 37 points and Lamar Odom had 19 points and 19 rebounds but the Lakers allowed the Jazz to shoot a season-high 58.6 percent. Odom and Bryant combined for 10 points and Bryant's 3-pointer gave the Lakers their first lead of the fourth quarter, 105-104, at
the 1:36 mark.

Sandwiched around Bryant's steal and layup, Paul Millsap made a three-point play and Okur made a 3-pointer to put Utah up, 110-107.
