GAME RECAP

Karl Malone scored 10 of his 24 points in the third quarter as the Utah Jazz rolled to their sixth straight win and gave coach Jerry Sloan his 600th career triumph with a 111-84 thrashing of the injury-depleted Houston Rockets.

Sloan became the 13th coach in NBA history to reach 600 wins and the first since Philadelphia 76ers coach Larry Brown, who reached the plateau with Indiana last season. Sloan's career record with the Jazz and Chicago Bulls is 600-370.

John Stockton and Shandon Anderson added 16 points apiece for the Jazz, who matched their longest winning streak of the season. Utah also won six in a row from November 22nd-December 3rd.

Kevin Willis scored 20 points to lead the Rockets, who have lost four straight games to the Jazz, including the last two of the Western Conference finals.

Houston was without four starters as All-Stars Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler and Charles Barkley and point guard Matt Maloney all were sidelined by injuries.

"They've got three great players sitting down," Sloan said. "You're not going to replace those players. They are All-Star players, they know how to win, and they are going to be rested when they come back."

The Jazz never trailed, opening a 22-17 lead after one quarter. They held a 24-22 lead early in the second quarter before a 10-0 spurt. Howard Eisley drained a three-pointer, Anderson scored five consecutive points and Antoine Carr capped the run with a short jumper for a 34-22 lead with 7:19 left before halftime.

Leading 36-28, the Jazz took their biggest lead of the half with an 11-3 surge. Stockton scored six points in the burst, which gave Utah a 47-31 cushion with 2:04 to play.

Houston closed the quarter on a 16-4 run keyed by six points from Othella Harrington to draw within 51-40. Harrington, who started at forward and played 38 minutes, finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

The Jazz wasted no time in putting away the game by starting the third quarter on a 24-7 spurt. Malone had 10 points in the burst and Stockton added four, capping the run with a layup as the Jazz took their biggest lead of the game, 75-47, with 4:58 left.

"You really can't judge from this game," Malone said. "It's the type of game you just have to go out and play. Unfortunately, guys get hurt and the shoe could be on the other foot, but you have to go out and play hard."

Malone connected on 9-of-14 shots from the floor for the Jazz, who shot a healthy 59 percent (48-of-81) from the floor while limiting Houston to only 38 percent (28-of-73) from the field.

"Basically, we got overpowered by a very good team," Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "We had some good looks at the basket in the first half, but couldn't put it in the hole. Then we had a terrible third quarter and couldn't get back in the game."
