Mo Williams put the dagger in the hearts of the Warriors Sunday night.

With 14 seconds remaining and a three-point Jazz lead, Williams stepped into a three-point shot and crushed it with confidence. On the next play, Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who pounded Utah in the first half, missed a 3-pointer of his own and the Jazz held on to win 97-90.

Derrick Favors was the defensive man of the game for the Jazz with three blocks and 13 rebounds. He had a huge rejection on Warrior Draymond Green with less than a minute left in regulation to prevent Golden State from cutting the Jazz lead to one point. DeMarre Carroll also came in off the bench and provided defensive energy. In the effort, the Jazz totaled 10 steals and six blocks.

Mo Williams led the Jazz in scoring with 25 points and had five assists. Curry finished the contest with 22 points for Golden State, however 17 of those came in the first half.
