GAME RECAP

Shawn Kemp scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers were 13-for-13 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter of a 106-101 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Rookie Derek Anderson added a season-high 23 points for the Cavaliers in 31 minutes off the bench, including hitting all 16 of his free throws. Fellow rookie Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 16 points and had 10 boards. Kemp was 10-for-14 from the line.

"The key to making free throws is concentration and accuracy. I stay in the gym every day and try to shoot my free throws in a straight line," said Anderson. "I feel if I'm going to the hole, I'm either going to get a field goal or free throws. I made 12 out of 12 once in college. I don't mind coming off the bench because if this role works for the team and gets us wins, that's all that counts."

Coming off a 27-point home loss to New York on Friday, the Cavaliers shot 83 percent (39-for-47) from the line and won for just the second time in five games. Utah connected on 69 percent (20-for-29) of its free throw attempts.

"That's really a good win for our guys. They bounced back from a real tough loss to New York," said Cleveland coach Mike Fratello. "I was anxious to see if they were going to be able to piece it back together again and they did. Utah is deep, they're good and they're smart, but we hung in there. And we made our free throws when we had to down the stretch.

"Derek Anderson has been on a terrific roll the last week and a half and playing his best basketball. And thank goodness, because it's been a great lift for us. When New york played us physically it kind of set us back on our heels and we didn't respond to it. We were more ready for it tonight."

Karl Malone scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter for the Jazz, who dropped to 2-2 on their current five-game road trip, with a game remaining Monday at Atlanta. Malone also had 13 rebounds, Adam Keefe 16 points and Bryon Russell 13.

"The Cavs did a good job. It looked like we were going to try to put the big burst on them and win the ballgame," said Utah coach Jerry Sloan. "Every time they put pressure on us we just kept getting farther away from the basket. You've got to go inside to get to the free throw line and we didn't do that.

"The Cavs rookies are very good and very talented. They play hard and seem to be enthusiastic. My goodness, that's a plus for this league, to see some enthusiasm."

With the game tied at 79-79, Utah took its last lead at the 8:39 mark of the fourth quarter when Russell hit a fast-break layup off a pass from Howard Eisley.

Cleveland countered with a 6-0 spurt, with Kemp hitting a jumper in the lane and two free throws and rookie Brevin Knight capping a fast break with a driving layup. Knight had 15 points, seven assists and four steals.

Malone then took over on offense, scoring 10 of the Jazz's next 12 points. The last of those was on a corner jumper, cutting the deficit to 94-93 with 1:39 left.

The Cavs scored the next six points, capped off by a pair of free throws by Knight, to make it 100-93 with 28 seconds to go.

Jeff Hornacek hit a three-pointer three seconds later, and after Anderson hit two free throws, John Stockton hit another three-pointer, pulling the Jazz within 102-99 with 15 seconds to go.

Two free throws apiece by Knight and Anderson, wrapped around a layup by Stockton, finished the scoring.

"I think we wanted to come out and show that we're a better team than we showed against the Knicks," said Knight. "We went out and played tough tonight. We really tightened up defensively down the stretch. Our guys inside did a great job and we cut down the passing lanes.

"I'm not gonna get points and steals every game. My strength is to do the little things that don't show up in the boxscore."

With the game tied 7-7 in the first quarter, Utah used a 9-0 spurt to take a 16-7 with 2:47 left, capped off by a jumper by Antoine Carr. The Jazz used that run to take a 23-16 lead at the end of the quarter.

Cleveland bounced back with a 19-11 spurt, and following a layup by Kemp with 5:37 left in the first half, the Cavs grabbed a 35-34 advantage.

The game was tied at 45-45 at halftime and 75-75 after three quarters.
