Bucks blow big lead late

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Boozer made a go-ahead layup with 46 seconds left and the Utah Jazz narrowly avoided another surprising road loss by beating the Milwaukee Bucks 114-110 at the Bradley Center tonight.

Deron Williams led Utah with 26 points and 13 assists, his ninth straight double-double and 41st overall. Ronnie Brewer scored 21 and Boozer added 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz, who bounced back from their 12-point loss at Chicago last night.

Charlie Villanueva and Michael Redd scored 26 points each to lead the Bucks, who nearly pulled out a victory thanks to Charlie Bell's strong outside shooting in the fourth quarter.

Bell scored 24 and tied a season high with five 3-pointers, including two in a 12-0 run midway through the fourth quarter that allowed Milwaukee to take a 99-89 lead.

Utah went 7 minutes without a field goal down the stretch, but used good free-throw shooting to stay in the game.

The Jazz then went on a 12-2 run of their own and later took the lead on Boozer's layup and pulled away by making free throws.
