GAME RECAP

Karl Malone scored 20 points to move into sixth place on the all-time scoring list and the Utah Jazz cruised to a 115-88 victory over the Golden State Warriors, who have lost eight straight home games.

Malone surpassed Oscar Robertson's 26,710 points when he made a 17-foot jumper with 7:03 remaining in the first quarter. He finished with 26,724 points and at his current pace of 25.9 points per game should pass Elvin Hayes and Moses Malone and move into fourth place by the end of the season.

"I get the ball a lot," Malone said. "It's just one of those things. I tried to give what I can and a lot of things have to happen to reach this level.

Malone did not make a big deal of his milestone, but he did keep a token of the occasion.

"Maybe in three or four years I'll think about it a little bit more," he said. "However, I do keep every ball since I've gotten to the top 10."

Malone also had a team-high nine assists and eight rebounds for the Jazz, who never trailed and have won eight of their last 11 road games. Utah has beaten Golden State seven straight times, including all three meetings this season by an average of 19.7 points.

"We're not a team that is going to rub it in anybody's face," said Malone, who sat out the fourth quarter instead of pursuing a triple-double. "For me to stay in the game to do that is degrading to the other team and other players."

Tony Delk scored 20 points for the woeful Warriors, who shot under 35 percent from the field and lost for the 15th time in 16 games. Golden State has lost nine games this season by at least 20 points.

"We were never in the game," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "They played agressively, both offensively and defensively. We were in the game for three or four minutes and they had us back on our heels. We just didn't have the energy that we've had in the past two games."

Adam Keefe scored five of his 11 points as Utah raced to a 9-0 lead in the first three minutes. Malone and Jeff Hornacek scored eight points apiece in the first quarter, which ended with the Jazz holding a 27-16 lead. Utah shot 50 percent (12-of-24) from the field while holding Golden State to 33 percent (7-of-21).

"We got off to a real good start to begin the ballgame," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We passed the ball and shot the ball real well."

John Stockton scored four of his eight points in a 10-2 burst that gave the Jazz a 57-35 lead with 22 seconds remaining in the first half.

Utah led by 20 points at halftime and blew it open with a 15-4 burst to start the third quarter. Malone scored seven points in the run, which was capped at 72-41 on a banker by Hornacek with 8:44 remaining.

The Jazz led 91-59 after three quarters and emptied the bench in the final period. They opened their largest lead at 100-64 on a layup by Shandon Anderson with 8:28 to go and the Warriors got no closer than the final margin.

Hornacek and Anderson scored 16 points apiece and Greg Ostertag and Greg Foster added 10 each for the Jazz, who shot 52 percent (44-of-84) and made 27-of-32 free throws. Stockton added eight assists.

"We know what we need to do once we come into the game," said Anderson. "I think they have a lot of younger guys and our team has a lot of older guys and that can make the difference."

Joe Smith scored 18 points and Todd Fuller added a season-high 17 and a career-high 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who shot 34.5 percent (30-of-87) and held a 50-45 rebounding edge. Golden State committed 22 turnovers.

Fuller had has a pair of solid games against last season's NBA finalists. He had 11 points and 12 rebounds Friday against the Chicago Bulls.

"It takes time to play against great players," he said. "We've played against two very good teams. Today Utah took it right to us. Malone is a great player. He's been around a long time."
