But this wasn’t quite a Darryl Dawkins backboard-buster. The rim was already loose from repeated jams by he and Jeremy Evans, he said.

"It was coming down already and I just went up and took it," Carroll said. "I actually took it home. They let me take it home."

Carroll said he gave the hoop "the last yank and I got it." Tuesday morning he said the rim was in his trunk — in case he needed proof — but that he may not be keeping it for too long.

"I might sign it," he said, "and put it up for auction for the Utah Jazz, for the Larry Miller Foundation."

Williams sent home

Marvin Williams went from doubtful Tuesday to expected to play against Oklahoma City. But before tip off, Williams, who missed Monday practice due to a stomach flu, went home sick.

In addition to Williams, Jazz guard Alec Burks missed his second straight game due to a sprained left ankle.

It was the eighth game in which Williams was inactive this season, his first with the Jazz. Previously he missed three games with concussion-like symptoms and four with right knee inflammation. He sat out Friday’s win over New Orleans due to tendinitis in his right heel, but was in uniform and available to play.
