TORONTO, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Alvin Williams scored nine of his 17 points in the final two minutes Monday night as the Toronto Raptors rallied late to overcome the Utah Jazz, 88-83.
Williams sank a 3-pointer from the right sideline and a 21-footer from the left before going 4-for-4 from the line in the closing 10 seconds to cap an 11-4 run as the Raptors moved above .500 with a 3-2 exhibition record.
The Jazz had put together runs of 12-3 and 12-2 in the third and fourth quarters, respectively, to take a 79-77 lead with 3:14 left before Williams took over.
Both clubs were missing an important starter. The Jazz (3-2) still have not seen All-Star forward Karl Malone, who is in Louisiana to be with his ill mother. Raptors forward Antonio Davis did not dress due to a hyperextended left elbow.
For Toronto, guard Carlos Arroyo contributed two rebounds, an assist and a steal in 18 minutes, and forward Michael Bradley had a rebound and a blocked shot in four minutes.
Utah starting forward Andrei Kirilenko and forward-center Jarron Collins combined for six rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes.
