(Newser) – Deron Williams buried a long 3-pointer with 17 seconds remaining to pull the Utah Jazz even with the Denver Nuggets at 106 and force overtime. Kyle Korver had six of his 27 points in the extra period, including four clutch free throws in the final 20 seconds to seal a 118-115 Utah victory, according to the Associated Press.

The Jazz have now won 10 in a row and 16 of their last 18 games. The win extends Utah's lead over Denver in the Northwest Division to two games. Allen Iverson led the Nuggets with 34 points and also dished 10 assists. Carmelo Anthony pitched in 29 of his own to go along with 8 rebounds in the loss.
