SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz can match their longest winning streak of the season on Monday when they host the Detroit Pistons, who continue a five-game road trip at the Delta Center.

The Jazz have won three consecutive games after losing eight of their previous 11. They won a season-high four games in a row from November 21-December 1.

Utah completed a two-game road trip with a 102-97 victory over the league-leading Sacramento Kings on Friday.

Andrei Kirilenko collected 24 points and 14 rebounds and rookie Maurice Williams scored 19 points for the Jazz, who had a 53-43 rebounding advantage.

Raja Bell added 15 points off the bench and Greg Ostertag grabbed 14 rebounds for Utah, which got 59 points from their reserves.

Detroit opened its five-game road trip with a 100-88 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

Chauncey Billups scored 28 points and Richard Hamilton had eight of his 21 in the final seven minutes for the Pistons, who rallied from a 12-point deficit.

Ben Wallace collected 13 points and 13 rebounds for Detroit, which has won four in a row after losing eight of nine. It has not won five straight since a franchise-record 13-game run from December 27-January 19.

The Pistons have won three consecutive games away from home to improve to 17-14 on the road.

Detroit has won four consecutive meetings with Utah, including a 96-75 romp on December 21.
