SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Mehmet Okur and the Utah Jazz seek to extend their winning streak to five games when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.

Okur scored 29 points, including a key basket in overtime, in Utah's 104-102 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

The 6-11 Okur had 13 of his points in the fourth quarter when the Jazz rallied from a 76-66 deficit.

Rookie Paul Millsap had 18 points and nine rebounds off the bench and Deron Williams added 16 points and 10 assists for the Jazz.

The Hawks are coming off one of their biggest wins of the season, a 120-111 victory over Phoenix on Friday.

Former Sun Joe Johnson scored 32 points and Josh Smith added 25 and five blocks as the Hawks took advantage of the absence of two-time MVP Steve Nash.
