SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Carlos Boozer collected 17 points and 10 rebounds and Mehmet Okur added 15 and seven as the Utah Jazz posted a 101-93 preseason victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Deron Williams had 12 points and 10 assists and Ronnie Brewer scored 14 for Utah, which shot 55 percent (43-of-78) from the field and held a 14-point edge after the first quarter.

A first-round pick in 2006, Brewer seems to have distinguished himself as the No. 1 candidate to join Williams in the starting backcourt for coach Jerry Sloan.

In helping the Jazz build a early advantage, Brewer slashed and cut his way to an impressive 12-point opening quarter. The 22-year-old entered averaging 19.5 points this preseason.

With the game tied, 49-49, Utah got back on track in the second half behind Williams, who poured in 10 points during a 19-7 surge.

Andre Miller netted 18 points and Andre Iguodala chipped in 14 and two steals for Philadelphia, which remained winless in the preseason at 0-4.
