(Newser) – The Utah Jazz rode Deron Williams in the fourth quarter and overtook the Milwaukee Bucks to earn a 98-87 victory at home. Williams had 14 of his game-high 33 points in the final period, as Utah used tough defense and a glut of free throw attempts to win their fourth straight contest and sixth in their last seven games, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

Former Utah Ute Andrew Bogut led the visiting Bucks with 23 points and 10 rebounds, but Milwaukee went ice cold from the field in the fourth quarter. Mo Williams’ three-pointer with 4:35 remaining was Milwaukee’s first field goal of the period; they ended up shooting a dismal 2-for-18 in the fourth.
