SALT LAKE CITY – Carlos Boozer scored 19 points, including 11 straight in the fourth quarter, and the Bulls closed out a six-game road trip with a 93-89 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Nate Robinson added 18 points for the Bulls, who rebounded nicely from a 32-point loss in Denver 24 hours earlier.

Al Jefferson had a season-high 32 points for Utah, scoring the first eight in the fourth period to give the Jazz a 77-73 lead.

Boozer, plagued by foul trouble early, got rolling with about 5 minutes remaining against his former team. His layup tied it at 83 with 2:29 left and he scored the next five from the free throw line, including a pair with 27 seconds left for an 88-85 Bulls lead.

Randy Foye's layup pulled Utah to 88-87 with 22 seconds left, but the Bulls sealed it at the foul line.
