SALT LAKE CITY – Mehmet Okur scored all of his 14 points in the second half and pulled down 15 rebounds, Deron Williams added 22 points and 11 assists, and the Utah Jazz ended the Boston Celtics’ four-game winning streak with a 110-97 victory Monday night.

C.J. Miles added 23 points and Carlos Boozer overcame early foul trouble to finish with 19 points — all but one in the second half — nine rebounds and two blocks.

Okur added three blocks for the Jazz, who controlled the lane and outscored the Celtics 50-36 inside.

Utah trailed 54-42 late in the second quarter but scored the last seven points of the first half, then the first nine of the third quarter to regain the lead.

Ray Allen had 15 points for the Celtics. Glen Davis scored 13, Paul Pierce 11 and Kevin Garnett 10.

Boston Coach Doc Rivers had seen enough and was ejected when he got two technicals with 1:11 left. After the first technical, Rivers held his hands high while applauding. Referee Ed Malloy felt he was being mocked and called the second technical, then pointed toward the tunnel as Rivers left for the locker room.

The Celtics had Boozer, Okur and reserves Paul Millsap and Kosta Koufos in foul trouble, but could not capitalize. Okur made four 3-pointers during Utah’s second-half surge.

Boozer didn’t get called for a foul in the second half and made the defensive play of the night when he swatted back Allen’s 3-point attempt, then got around Allen and ran down the loose ball for a two-handed dunk that put the Jazz up 95-81 with 6:41 left.

After missing all six 3-point attempts in the first half, Utah was 7 of 15 in the second half. The Jazz also went 21 for 27 from the foul line, where Williams made all 11 of his shots.


BUCKS 98, HAWKS 95: John Salmons scored 16 of his 32 points, including the tiebreaking free throws with 21.8 seconds remaining, and Milwaukee rallied past visiting Atlanta.

Joe Johnson scored 14 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter for Atlanta.


MAGIC 109, 76ERS 93: Rashard Lewis scored 24 points, Dwight Howard added 23 points and 15 rebounds, and visiting Orlando reached 50 wins for the third straight season.


HEAT 99, NETS 89: Dwyane Wade had 27 points and 12 assists, and visiting Miami sent New Jersey to its eighth straight loss.

Brook Lopez had 26 points for the Nets. New Jersey played without interim coach Kiki Vandeweghe, whose mother is gravely ill in California.


HORNETS 115, MAVERICKS 99: Chris Paul played for the first time in 25 games, and Marcus Thornton scored 28 points to help New Orleans beat visiting Dallas.

Returning from a left knee injury, Paul started but was limited to 21 minutes and had 11 points.


RAPTORS 106, TIMBERWOLVES 100: Chris Bosh had 21 points and 10 rebounds to help visiting Toronto hand Minnesota its 13th straight loss.

CAVALIERS: Zydrunas Ilgauskas will consider a couple of different offers from Cleveland and choose the one he wants today, his agent said.

Ilgauskas has the option of signing for just the remainder of this season or adding extra years to the deal.

Cleveland dealt Ilgauskas to Washington at the trade deadline in a three-team deal that brought Antawn Jamison and Sebastian Telfair to the Cavaliers. Monday was the first day he was eligible to re-sign with the Cavaliers under league rules.


ROCKETS: Forward Shane Battier missed Houston’s game against the Chicago Bulls and is expected to be sidelined at least 10 days with a sprained left knee.


WARRIORS: Golden State signed forward Reggie Williams for the remainder of the season and waived guard Raja Bell to reduce its roster to 15 players.
