MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Deron Williams had 19 assists and scored 13 points, and the Utah Jazz sent the Memphis Grizzlies to their eighth straight loss, 113-92 on Saturday.

Seven scored in double figures for Utah, including all five starters. Carlos Boozer led Utah with 18 points, and Mehmet Okur finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

Rudy Gay led Memphis with 20 points. Hakim Warrick and Juan Carlos Navarro scored 17 points apiece, with Warrick grabbing 13 rebounds. Darko Milicic finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Utah held a 12-point lead early in the fourth, but Memphis used a 12-2 run to cut the margin to 82-80.

Memphis could never overtake Utah as the Jazz answered with a 16-3 run later in the period to put the game out of reach.
