(Newser) – Together, Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, and Mehmet Okur accounted for 73 of Utah's points in last night's 110-101 outpacing of the Heat. Williams added 15 assists, Boozer grabbed 15 rebounds, and Okur, a center, nailed four of five three-pointers to bust open an 87-87 tie, reports the Miami Herald.

Though Miami stayed in the game until Utah went on a 23-14 scoring binge near the end, "It don't mean nothing that we played well for 40 minutes. It's another L," said Alonzo Mourning. It's the Heat's 13th loss of the season, and the first in six games against the Jazz.
