Recap: Utah vs. Chicago

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Carlos Boozer had 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bulls' 93-89 win over the Utah Jazz.

Nate Robinson added 18 points and nine assists for the Bulls, who had lost three of their last four games coming in.

Joakim Noah tallied 12 points and 11 rebounds in the triumph.

Al Jefferson registered a season-high 32 points and 13 boards for Utah, which had won four of its past five contests coming into Friday.

"They made him work hard to get the ball and, once he got it, they sent another body at him," Utah head coach Tyrone Corbin said of the Bulls' defense on Jefferson.

Paul Millsap netted 21 points in defeat.

After Boozer tied the game with a layup, he split a pair from the line on the Bulls' ensuing possession to give Chicago an 84-83 edge with 1:47 to play.

Four consecutive Boozer free throws, sandwiched around a Millsap turnaround baseline jumper made the score 88-85 in favor of Chicago with 27 ticks left.

Randy Foye's driving layup was followed by two Noah foul shots, but Millsap's step-back left corner triple over the outstretched arms of Taj Gibson was off the mark with 16 seconds to play. Luol Deng hit 3-of-4 at the line to seal the win.

Chicago led 31-27 after a quarter of play and took a 58-50 advantage into the break.

Utah outscored the Bulls 19-11 in the third to knot the tilt at 69 heading into the final frame.
