SALT LAKE CITY ó Paul Millsap had 16 points and 15 rebounds to help the Utah Jazz hold off the Washington Wizards 92-88 on Wednesday night.
The Jazz led by 22 points in the second quarter and 15 entering the fourth, but the road-weary Wizards fought back to within two on Kevin Seraphinís jumper with 6:57 left.
Millsapís putback put Utah up by seven, but the Wizards came back again as Utah went cold. Millsapís 14-foot baseline jumper with 21 seconds left halted a nearly 3-minute scoreless stretch for the Jazz and bumped their lead to 90-84.
Martell Websterís third 3-pointer cut Utahís lead to 90-87 with 15 seconds left, but ex-Wizards guard Randy Foye made both free throws with 11 seconds remaining to seal it.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
