GAME RECAP

Jeff Hornacek scored 23 points and John Stockton added 22 while handing out 12 assists as the Utah Jazz won their season-high seventh straight game, defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers, 106-99.

Karl Malone chipped in 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz, who trailed 92-90 with 3:47 to play but ran off a 12-4 spurt to take control. Malone has led the Jazz in scoring in all but four games this season.

"We're starting to get back into rhythm," said Malone. "They (Cleveland) have a pretty good team. They have a young team, they have a lot of energy. We've gutted out some wins but, to me, a win is a win. It's kind of amazing because just about a month ago everybody wanted to abandon the shup and jump off."

Utah, which shot 54 percent (34-of-63) from the field, won six consecutive games from November 11th-December 3rd. The Jazz have won 12 of their last 13 home games.

Rookie Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored a career-high 26 points and pulled down 17 rebounds for Cleveland, which lost for the eighth straight time at the Delta Center as it began a four-game road trip that includes visits to Phoenix, Denver and Seattle.

Cleveland connected on 37-of-76 (49 percent) field goals and outrebounded Utah, 34-32, but was victimized by 18 turnovers that led to 21 Jazz points. Rookie Brevin Knight, who dished out 12 assists, committed just one turnover while Shawn Kemp had six.

One minute after Cleveland took the 92-90 lead with a jump shot by Kemp, the Jazz went up for good when Bryon Russell drained the second of his three three-pointers. After Ilgauskas answered two Karl Malone foul shots with two free throws of his own, Russell gave the Jazz a 98-94 advantage with his final three at the 1:25 mark.

"When they went off and double on me the shot was there for me, and I just stepped up and shot it," said Russell."

Rookie Derek Anderson connected on two foul shots for Cleveland, but Stockton hit a layup and Jeff Hornacek followed with two from the line that put Utah up, 102-96, with 31 seconds remaining.

"We did what we need to do in the second half," added Malone. "I think starting the second quarter we really got active defensively. Whenever you do that you're going to give yourself an opportunity to win and I think we put ourselves in that position."

Greg Foster scored 13 points and Adam Keefe added 10 for Utah, which topped the 100-point mark for the third straight time.

"It's a sign of concern for us," said Keefe abouting blowing the fourth quarter lead. "We certainly don't want to have a team down by 10 in the fourth quarter and then have to battle, we want to extend that lead and push it out."

The Cavaliers lost despite holding a huge advantage in the paint, 38-20, and a decisive one in second-chance points, 17-5.

Utah led 82-72 entering the fourth quarter but the Cavaliers opened the period with a 13-2 burst. Vitaly Potapenko scored all five of his points during the spurt that was capped when Ilgauskas gave Cleveland an 82-72 lead on a dunk with 8:13 remaining.

The teams combined to attempt 65 free throws, with the Jazz hitting on 30-of-38 from the line while Cleveland connected on 20-of-27.

"I was very proud of the effort, we got a great effort," said Cavaliers coach Mike Fratello. "Unfortunately, the three-point line, obviously, was the difference in the game. If you shoot 8-for-10 from the three-point line, it's...it's one of those nights"
