GAME RECAP

All-Star Karl Malone scored 34 points and Jeff Hornacek added 22 as the Utah Jazz assumed first place in the Midwest Division with a convincing 111-91 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics, who had an eight-game home winning streak snapped.

Malone paced Utah to its fourth straight win in dominating fashion despite not scoring in the fourth quarter. He had 17 of his points in the third period, and finished 14-of-23 from the field while grabbing a team-high eight boards and six assists.

Utah (34-15) seized a half-game lead over the San Antonio Spurs (34-16) in the Midwest. The Spurs lost earlier in the evening to the Phoenix Suns.

The Jazz, who shot a blistering 58 percent (44-of-76) from the floor, decided the issue early in the second quarter with an 18-8 burst. They took a 55-40 cushion into the half and went on to lead by as many as 23 points in the fourth quarter.

"Every time they made a run we did some positive things," said Malone. "In the second half we didn't want the game to get under double digits."

John Stockton collected 12 assists and 10 points as Utah avenged a January 28th home loss to Seattle with its third win in a row at Key Arena.

The Sonics were playing their fourth game in five days, including a 113-108 overtime triumph over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday that capped a 2-1 road trip.

"We're a good team, but this is a hard game to tell (how good)," Hornacek said. "The Sonics looked tired. We came out and executed like we were supposed to, and we were alert for all the things they do. We were ready for them tonight."

Gary Payton totaled 23 points, 10 assists and six rebounds and Hersey Hawkins netted 16 points for Seattle. The Pacific Division leaders fell to 20-3 at home.

"Utah came after us tonight," observed Seattle coach George Karl. "They knew we were tired and they took advantage of it. They passed well, and we didn't control either Stockton or (Howard) Eisley. We didn't shoot well, and only Hawkins had any legs tonight."

Vin Baker, Detlef Schrempf and Greg Anthony each had 10 points for the Sonics, who hit just 43 percent (30-of-69) of their shots, including an abysmal 23 percent (5-of-22) from three-point range.

"I wasn't aggressive tonight, and I can't blame it on being tired," conceded Baker. "I've been playing aggressive the last few games, but I didn't play that way tonight."

Baker, also an All-Star, had been hot, averaging 26.3 points and 10 boards over the past seven games. He was kept off the glass by the Jazz, however, managing only three rebounds in 33 minutes as his team lost the battle on the backboards, 36-29.

The Jazz clung to a 27-23 lead after one quarter before opening things up in the second, scoring 18 of the period's first 26 points to carve a 45-31 advantage. Reserves Bryon Russell and Howard Eisley were the main contributors in the burst, scoring five and four points, respectively.

Russell finished with 11 points, Eisley added six and six assists and Greg Foster had eight points in a starting role before fouling out. Russell was on target twice from behind the arc for Utah, which hit 5-of-7 three-pointers and 18-of-22 free throws.

The Jazz, who outscored Seattle in each quarter, held an 87-71 lead after three periods. The Sonics staged a short series of mini-runs in the first half of the fourth, but were unable to gain enough momentum to cut the deficit to single digits.

Utah's 111 points matches the second-highest total allowed in a game by the Sonics this season.
