SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Marvin Williams netted five sorely needed points in the game's closing moments Monday, helping the Utah Jazz put away Houston 109-103.

The Jazz were clinging to a 3-point lead with just over 2 minutes remaining when Williams picked off a James Harden pass and cruised in on a breakaway for a slam dunk.

Then, after each team had posted a basket, Williams drained a 3-pointer off an assist from Gordon Hayward to secure the victory.

Hayward pumped in 29 points while Trey Burke and Alec Burks each provided 21 for Utah, which won a second straight game for the first time this season.

Williams finished with 10 points.

Harden paced the Rockets with 37 points and eight assists.
