Utah Jazz Getting Inside

Utah Jazz Getting Inside
For one reason or another, the Jazz have had the New Orleans Hornets' number this season, winning the two games the teams have played in Utah by 28 and 22 points, respectively.

Deron Williams had one Hornet in particular's number in his last showdown with Chris Paul.

Williams outscored Paul 29-6 in the Jazz's 110-88 victory on Feb. 4. Williams forced Paul to the bench with early foul trouble and went on to hit 11-of-13 shots and total 11 assists. Paul played just 27 minutes and went 3-for-11.

The two always will be linked by the 2005 draft, but have more of a friendship than rivalry. Williams invited Paul to watch the Super Bowl at his house before their last game and Williams attended at least one party hosted by Paul during All-Star weekend.

Paul was selected to play in the game, while Williams was snubbed for the second consecutive year. Williams did beat Paul to win the skills competition at All-Star Saturday night. The two sat with each other the night before at the rookie/sophomore game.

The Hornets self-destructed against a Jazz zone defense in losing 99-71 back on Nov. 23. Since the last time they played, the Hornets acquired Bonzi Wells and Mike James in a trade-deadline deal with Houston.

This will be the start of a two-game trip to New Orleans and Memphis for the Jazz, who have suffered disappointing road losses to the L.A. Clippers and Minnesota since returning from the All-Star break.

JAZZ 103, PISTONS 95: After trailing by as many as 18 points in the second quarter and hearing boos from the home crowd, the Jazz regrouped in the second half for one of their most rousing victories of the season.

It was the Jazz's 15th consecutive home victory -- only four shy of the franchise record -- and their biggest comeback win of the season. The previous biggest before Wednesday was 12 points in a Dec. 31 victory over Portland.

The Jazz came alive in the third quarter, scoring 10 unanswered points in the final three minutes. Mehmet Okur knocked down three three-pointers in the last 2:41 as the Jazz improved to 25-3 at home this season.
