MEMPHIS, Tenn. Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz extended their winning streak to eight games Saturday night with a 110-91 victory over the new-look Memphis Grizzlies.
The Jazz have won 12 of their last 13 and sit atop the Western Conference's Northwest Division. Meanwhile, Memphis lost its third consecutive game, and Grizzlies fans got a glimpse of what the rest of the season might be like without team leader Pau Gasol, who was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.
Six players finished in double figures for the Jazz, who built the lead to 27 in the fourth quarter and were in control the entire game.
Deron Williams had 16 points and 11 assists, and Mehmet Okur added 15 points and 13 rebounds. Ronnie Brewer scored 16 points, Kyle Korver had 14 and Matt Harpring 12.
Rudy Gay led Memphis with 15 points, but was 5-of-15 from the field. Mike Miller and Hakim Warrick scored 14 points apiece, while Darko Milicic finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Juan Carlos Navarro had 11 points for the Grizzlies.
Memphis was short-handed because the team is in transition following Friday's trade with the Lakers. None of the three players obtained from Los Angeles Javaris Crittenton, Kwame Brown and Aaron McKie dressed for the game, although Crittenton did participate in pregame warmups.
That left Memphis with only nine players in uniform, and by the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies were out of gas.
