Jazz pull away to beat Milwaukee 95-86


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Deron Williams scored 22 points and added 11 assists, leading the Utah Jazz past the Milwaukee Bucks 95-86 and overcoming a double-digit deficit for the ninth time this season on Saturday night.

The Jazz (19-9) avoided losing consecutive games for the first time since starting 0-2 and shook off a season-low 71 points on Friday in New Orleans with a second-half surge after falling behind by 12 early to Milwaukee.

Al Jefferson added 18 points and nine rebounds, C.J. Miles scored 16 points and Paul Millsap had 15 for the Jazz, which had 10 of its 14 offensive rebounds in the second half.

Andrew Bogut scored 19 points and had nine rebounds and John Salmons returned from back spasms to contribute 18 points, but the Bucks couldn't hold on to the lead.
