SALT LAKE CITY -- Carlos Boozer had 24 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists and the Utah Jazz tied their season-best winning streak with their third straight victory, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 120-93 Monday night.

The Jazz scored their most points this season and beat the Grizzlies for the 10th straight time, going 45 for 77 from the floor and hitting 7-of-14 3-pointers.

Ronnie Brewer was one off his career high with 25 points and Wesley Matthews scored 17, going 6 for 7 from the floor. Deron Williams had 22 points and six assists for the Jazz.

O.J. Mayo had 20 points to lead the Grizzlies, who fell to 2-9 on the road.

The Grizzlies were coming off a 98-88 loss at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, when they blew a 20-point lead and scored just seven points in the fourth quarter. The only lead Memphis held on Monday was 2-0 and that didn't last long.

Sam Young scored 17 and Zach Randolph had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Grizzlies.

All nine Utah players who made it in the game scored and six of them scored in double figures. The Jazz never trailed after Matthews broke a 2-2 tie on a 3-pointer with 10:14 left in the first quarter.

Boozer was flirting with a triple-double, but played just three minutes of the fourth quarter as the Jazz improved to 4-1 on a six-game homestand.

The Jazz went up 88-68 after a layup by Kyrylo Fesenko, then they closed the period on a 7-2 run. Williams started it with a 3-pointer, then Brewer stole a pass from Marcus Williams and took it in all alone for a showboat one-handed dunk, which he followed with an acrobatic layup over DeMarre Carroll after another turnover by the Grizzlies.

The rout continued in the fourth quarter when Matthews dipped the ball behind the backboard for a reverse layup that made it 103-78.
