SALT LAKE CITY — Marvin Williams scored five points in the final two minutes, Gordon Hayward broke out of a shooting slump to score 29 points and the Utah Jazz earned their first back-to-back wins of the season with a 109-103 victory over the Houston Rockets on Monday night.
With Utah clinging to a 101-98 lead, Williams stole James Harden's pass and raced down for a dunk with 2 minutes left. Williams then hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 59 seconds to go to boost the lead to 108-100.
Trey Burke posted career highs of 21 points and six assists for Utah, which shot 54 percent and made 10 of 17 from beyond the arc.
Harden had 15 of his season-best 37 points in the fourth quarter to keep the Rockets close, but they couldn't get enough defensive stops.
