OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Corey Maggette scored 24 points and Stephen Jackson had 20 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in the Golden State Warriors' latest impressive home victory, 116-96 over the Utah Jazz on Sunday night.

Kelenna Azubuike scored 16 points and C.J. Watson added 14 for the Warriors, who routed Phoenix four days earlier in Oakland behind Jackson's first career triple-double. With Jackson again catalyzing the offense, Golden State rolled past the Jazz with a 38-point third quarter and a strong finish, eventually going ahead by 25 in the waning minutes.

Deron Williams had 31 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Jazz, who slipped back into ninth place behind the Suns in the Western Conference with their first loss in four games.
