(Newser) – The pick-and-roll, as executed by Utah's Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer, proved more than adequate against a porous Philadelphia defense in a 106-95 win. Williams had 15 assists and 15 points, and Boozer scored 26; the extra day of rest the Jazz had over the 76ers seemed to show. In other NBA action:

  • The Bucks added to a miserable road record by falling to the Hawks, 96-80.
  • Spanish Night favored the Raptors (Jose Calderon) over the Grizzles (Pau Gasol, Juan Carlos Navarro), 103-91.
