AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Deron Williams scored 29 points and the Utah Jazz beat the Detroit Pistons 120-114 in double overtime Friday night.
The win was Utah's seventh straight over the Pistons and Mehmet Okur, who finished with 26 points and 12 rebounds, is 8-1 against them since leaving after winning the 2004 NBA title.
Allen Iverson led Detroit with 38 points and Richard Hamilton added 30.
Rasheed Wallace's 3-pointer pulled Detroit within 96-94 with 1:20 to play, and Rodney Stuckey picked off the inbounds pass and laid it in to tie the game moments later.
Okur and Wallace both missed, giving the Jazz a chance at what they thought would be the final shot of regulation. Williams drove on Stuckey, then stopped and pivoted to hit a short jumper with 2.2 seconds left. Hamilton, though, took the ensuing inbounds pass and hit a baseline jumper to send the game to overtime.
