SALT LAKE CITY, April 2 (UPI) -- Utah's Al Jefferson and Mo Williams combined for 44 points Monday, boosting the Jazz to a fifth straight win, 112-102 over Portland.

Jefferson provided 24 points with 10 rebounds and Williams went 6-of-7 from 3-point range for Utah, which has used the hot streak to grab sole possession of the Western Conference's eighth and final playoff spot.

The Jazz hold a one-half game lead over the Los Angeles Lakers for eighth place.

Wesley Matthews supplied 23 points for the Trail Blazers, who dropped a fifth straight while playing without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge.

Damian Lillard added 17 points for Portland.
