NEW YORK, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Mo Williams popped in 19 points and Al Jefferson added 16 Tuesday, allowing the Utah Jazz to hang on for a 92-90 victory over Brooklyn.

Williams distributed six assists and Jefferson hauled down 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who broke a two-game skid.

Utah only secured the win when Brooklyn's Gerald Wallace missed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left and Reggie Evans' put-back try balanced on the rim before falling off at the buzzer.

Derrick Favors helped out with 13 points in the victory.

The Nets, meanwhile, lost for the seventh time in nine games despite 19 points from Joe Johnson.

Brook Lopez supplied 16 and Deron Williams chipped in 14 and five assists for the Nets.
