With 21 points apiece, Mo Williams and Marvin Williams -- who came over from the Atlanta Hawks -- paced a balanced Jazz attack that featured six players, including all starters, in double-figures.
The Mavericks shot 37.6 percent overall from the floor, as Darren Collison led the team with 17 points (on 6-of-12 shooting from the field) for the second straight night.
Elsewhere, James Harden's career with the Rockets launched in a 105-96 Houston win over the Detroit Pistons. Harden went for 37 points (on 14-of-25 shooting), 12 assists, six rebounds and four steals in the comeback win.
