05:03 PM ET 03.30 | After lighting up the Trail Blazers for 14 points in the fourth quarter of a 105-95 win Friday night, Jazz point guard Mo Williams said he got the motivation from being benched earlier in the game. Following a quiet first quarter from Williams in the game, Utah coach Tyrone Corbin decided to mix things up in the second quarter by leaving his starting point guard on the bench. The veteran admitted to being frustrated by the situation after the game, but added that it gave him motivation to go out and play better. He finished with 28 points and five assists. "Yeah, you know, yeah. You get pissed off. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself you come out and be aggressive," Williams said.
