Chicago 101, at Utah 100: Larry Hughes' 22-foot jumper as time expired gave the Bulls the win and handed the short-handed Jazz its first home loss of the season. Hughes rebounded Derrick Rose's miss inside and got off the winning shot in time as Jazz players stood stunned, looking to see if it counted. The play was reviewed and the shot stood to give the Bulls their second road win of the season. Rose finished with 25 points, 10 in the fourth quarter, and nine assists. Mehmet Okur had 26 points and nine rebounds for Utah, which was without injured starters Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer.

The Utah Jazz fell into an 11-point hole in the first quarter, its defense nonexistent in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals, the Lakers having their way in shooting 78.9% from the field. The Jazz fell deeper into that hole, going down by 14 points in the second quarter, the Lakers still doing as they pleased, shooting 60.5% at the half. Though his Jazz team played a better second half and even had a lead in the fourth, Utah Coach Jerry Sloan still questioned his team's "toughness."

Wednesday morning, hours before the Bulls applied the brakes to the Heat's run at history, Chicago Coach Tom Thibodeau was asked if he had mentioned Miami's 27-game winning streak. "What streak?" Thibodeau said. Indeed, on a night in which the only Derrick Rose appearance came via a bobblehead doll and Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton and Marco Belinelli also sat with injuries, the Bulls made history disappear. The second-longest winning streak in North American major professional sports league history is over thanks to a 101-97 victory that, out of nowhere, rekindled talk of a lengthy Bulls' postseason run. Heat, meet grit.

There are plenty of exciting, sizzling point guards in the NBA -- Steve Nash, Chris Paul and Jason Kidd among them. Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz also is considered one of the best point guards in the league. Williams has yet to make the All-Star team, but he was second-team all-NBA in 2008. In the eyes of many, Williams doesn't have to take a back seat to any of his counterparts at point guard. "It feels good to be considered one of the best in the world," Williams said before Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Traditionally, Lakers assistant coach Frank Hamblen said, Game No. 2 in the playoffs has the potential to be the trap game. The Lakers lead the best-of-seven series against the Utah Jazz, 1-0, and play Game 2 Tuesday at Staples Center. But Hamblen, in charge of putting the Lakers' game plan together against the Jazz, doesn't want his team to be comfortable, even if the Lakers are playing at home. Why? "I think the visiting team has a better comfort level [for Game 2]

Carlos Boozer turned a battle of the backcourts into a blowout. The Duke center tied his career-high with 28 points and had seven rebounds on Thursday night at Boston as the top-ranked Blue Devils opened a 29-point first-half lead and coasted to an 88-78 victory over Boston College. "We've got the best perimeter in college basketball," Boozer said. "I try to complement those guys so they can make threes and break down the defense."

It doesn't always take a big shot, a big rebound or a big steal to win a game. Sometimes what seems insignificant can prove to have the greatest impact. Sometimes, the sound of silence from a referee's whistle can reverberate through a game. And sometimes a seldom-used star can emerge from the shadows at just the right time. So it was Wednesday night at Staples Center, where the Clippers defeated the Utah Jazz, 101-90, in front of 17,481. The Clippers had lost seven of eight to fall to 12-14.

Carlos Boozer changed his mind, much to the dismay of the Cleveland Cavaliers and to the delight of the Utah Jazz. Boozer, a restricted free agent, said last week that he planned to stay with the Cavaliers, but the Jazz said Thursday they had a deal in place to bring Boozer, a forward and center, to Salt Lake City. "We've reached an agreement for an offer sheet to be delivered on July 14," said Kevin O'Connor, the team's vice president.

The Lakers won a game, but it was hard to tell. They're now 1-0 in the Western Conference semifinals, though there were no smiles in their locker room Sunday at Staples Center. A 104-99 victory over the Utah Jazz felt almost like a loss to them, even though Kobe Bryant had his best shooting game in five weeks, Pau Gasol continued his steady play and the Lakers managed to win despite only 39 hours to recover from the fleet feet of the Oklahoma City Thunder, no small concern for a veteran, banged-up team.
