SALT LAKE CITY, March 23 (UPI) -- Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 13 rebounds Saturday to lead the Utah Jazz past Seattle 115-101.

Mehmet Okur finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds and Deron Williams had 15 points and 14 assists for the Jazz -- who have four wins in their last six games and lead second-place Denver by four games in the Northwest Division.

Jeff Green and Kevin Durant scored 23 points each and Earl Watson had 14 points and five assists for the SuperSonics, who lost their 11th straight game.

Seattle took a nine-point lead into halftime, but Utah staged an 11-2 run to tie the game 63-63 at 2:29 of the third quarter -- and then used a 13-4 run at the end of the period to go up 85-81.

Three-pointers by Kyle Korver and Okur put Utah up 91-81 in the opening minutes of the fourth period and the Sonics never got closer than eight points down the rest of the way.
