SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Carlos Boozer had 25 points and tied his career high with 21 rebounds, and the Utah Jazz snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Golden State Warriors 104-100 Tuesday night.

Deron Williams had 17 assists and scored all 10 of his points in the second half as the Jazz rallied to win and avoid their longest slide of the season.

Paul Millsap added 16 points, including a 3-pointer with 7 seconds remaining as the shot clock was just about to expire. It was Millsap's first career 3-pointer and put Utah up 104-97 and Al Harrington's 3-pointer in the final seconds was meaningless.

Harrington led Golden State with 27 points.

The Jazz outrebounded the Warriors 44-30 and had 32 assists to 21, and Golden State's reserves combined for a total of six points.

Baron Davis had 20 points and seven assists, Jason Richardson scored 21, and Andris Biedrins had 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Derek Fisher had 19 points and five assists against the Warriors, who traded him to Utah last summer, and Andrei Kirilenko added 12 points and three blocks for the Jazz.

Utah was coming off an 0-4 road trip and in danger of losing five straight for the first time this season. Golden State, which had won three in a row, led by 15 in the second quarter and was up by 12 in the third before Utah started to come back with an 8-0 run.

Boozer hit a short jumper and put back a rebound to start the run and Williams added a layup, his first points of the game.

After the Jazz got within 75-73, Davis gave the Warriors a slight cushion by scoring their last seven points of the period, giving Golden State an 82-76 lead. But the Jazz opened the fourth quarter with an 8-2 run, holding the Warriors without a field goal for the first 3:30. They tied it at 84 on Boozer's 17-foot jumper

Davis put Golden State up 91-89 on a 3-pointer with 5:35 left, but that was the last time the Warriors led. Matt Harpring tied it at 91 with two free throws and followed with a jumper to start a 10-2 run that gave the Jazz the lead for good.

Utah led 101-97 as the shot clock was about to expire when Kirilenko underhanded the ball to Millsap at the top of the key. The rookie let it go for just the second time in his career from beyond the arc.

Game notes Golden State made nine 3-pointers in the first half. ... Stephen Jackson fouled out with 3:29 left, finishing with 16 points and five assists and taking a while to leave the court while protesting the final foul. ... Boozer also had 21 rebounds in December 2003 when he was playing for Cleveland.
