Daily Deron: Williams, Jazz Rally for Overtime Victory Against Rockets

Trailing by 14 points to the Houston Rockets at halftime on Saturday night, the Utah Jazz appeared headed to its first three-game losing streak of the season.

However, thanks to stingy defense that held Houston to just 13 field goals after the break and Paul Millsap scoring 12 of his 27 points in overtime, the Jazz were able to pull out yet another comeback victory.

While struggling with his shooting on back-to-back nights, former University of Illinois point guard Deron Williams dished out a team- and game-high 15 assists during the 4-point overtime victory against the Rockets, which have lost 5 straight games.

Here’s a look at Williams’ statistics.

Until next time.
