Spotlight on Mo Williams: Ask Nuggets coach George Karl why he thinks the Jazz has been so good lately and Williams' name comes up quickly. Utah has "one of the top five (hardest) courts to win in basketball, and I think Mo Williams has ... he and (Randy) Foye are playing incredible right now." Williams is averaging 17 points and 6.6 assists per game in his last five games. He's shooting 51.7 percent from the field, 57.9 percent from 3-point range and hasn't missed a free throw during that span.
