Mehmet Okur had 22 points and 11 rebounds and the Utah Jazz won, 103-87, last night in Washington, extending the Wizards’ team-record losing streak to 15 games.

Deron Williams had 20 points and 12 assists for the Jazz, and Carlos Boozer added 22 points — hitting all eight of his second-half shots — and 10 rebounds.

Andray Blatche led Washington with 20 points and Nick Young had 16.

The Jazz shot 59 percent from the field, the best mark for any team against the Wizards this season, and outrebounded Washington, 45-34.

“Their bigs mauled our guys,’’ Wizards coach Flip Saunders said.

Mavericks 111, Warriors 90 — Rodrigue Beaubois scored a career-high 40 points as visiting Dallas beat Golden State.

Beaubois made 9 of 11 3-pointers, was 15 of 22 overall from the field and made his only free throw. The 6-foot guard from Guadeloupe had 26 points in the first half.

Corey Maggette led the Warriors with 21 points, Monta Ellis had 14, and Anthony Tolliver grabbed a career-high 21 rebounds — 20 in the second half.

Trail Blazers 112, Hornets 101 — Brandon Roy scored 28 points as visiting Portland eliminated New Orleans from playoff contention.

Roy hit 11 of his first 12 shots, only two of them layups. He finished 12 of 14 in 32 minutes. LaMarcus Aldridge added 24 points and Nicola Batum 13 for Portland.

The Blazers won for the 10th time in 12 games.

Darren Collison had 22 points for New Orleans on a perfect 10-of-10 shooting from the field and 2 of 2 from the foul line.

Lakers 109, Rockets 101 — Pau Gasol scored 30 points and visiting Los Angeles used a 20-0 run in the second quarter to beat Houston, which was playing without Kevin Martin (left shoulder) and Shane Battier (knee).

Bulls 106, Nets 83 — Jannero Pargo scored a season-high 27 points and Taj Gibson had a career-high 22 points and added 13 rebounds to help host Chicago.
