SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz have missed Mehmet Okur for four straight games, but that may come to an end Saturday.

Okur went through a full practice Friday for the first time since straining his hamstring 11 days ago. He says if he feels good Saturday, he's ready to go.

Even without Memo, there were plenty of heroes in Game 3 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Carlos Boozer tied a Jazz playoff record with 22 rebounds and Deron Williams hit the game-winning shot. Still, without the way Matt Harpring played Thursday night, the Jazz may be down 3-0.
