(Newser) – Considering the dominating January Utah has had—a 11-2 record with 10 straight home wins—they may have let the Knicks come too close in last night's 100-89 victory. The Jazz never trailed, but did let New York within seven points in the fourth before Deron Williams put the lid on the game, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Elsewhere in the league:

  • It took only eight healthy Clippers players to come back from a 7-point Atlanta lead, handing the hapless Hawks their third straight road loss, 95-88.
  • All five Sacramento starters hit the double digits, and Brad Miller pulled in a career-high 21 boards, in the Kings' 105-91 win against Charlotte.
