GAME RECAP

Shandon Anderson scored a career-high 26 points off the bench on 11-of-16 shooting, leading the Utah Jazz to their 10th win in 11 games, 108-93 over the Toronto Raptors.

Karl Malone, who had led the Jazz in scoring in their previous 20 games, added 24 points and 10 rebounds. The last Utah player to lead the Jazz in scoring other than Malone was Jeff Hornacek in a win over Cleveland on January 12th.

Anderson, a reserve swingman averaging 8.6 points per game, eclipsed his previous high of 21, established in the season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I didn't have a great game," Malone said. "Kind of a slow start, but you've just got to stay with it. Other guys picked it up tonight and that's what it's all about. Shandon did a great job for us. He brings a lot to the table and gives us a spark off the bench."

Bryon Russell added a season-high 21 points and seven rebounds off the bench and John Stockton 11 assists for the Jazz, who won their third straight game and their sixth in the last seven on the road. Utah (40-16) is one game ahead of San Antonio (40-18) in the Midwest Division.

"These games are tough," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "Toronto hung in there and we were fortunate enough to come away with the win. Shandon and Bryon did a great job off the bench. They double-teamed us, and we took quick shots and didn't execute.

"We still fought through that and Karl really stepped up in the second half. In the first half we were too casual, then we got to where we wanted to be and got layups."

Chauncey Billups scored 26 points, John Wallace added 21 and Doug Christie 20 for Toronto, which was coming off a triple-overtime win at Orlando on Friday. The Raptors have dropped eight of their last 10 games overall and five of six to Utah.

"We just ran into a better team with better coaching," said Raptors interim coach Butch Carter, who is 2-5 since taking over for Darrell Walker. "We're down there fighting for every bucket. We have to become a better rebounding team. We had to try and limit John and Karl as best we could. We got Hornacek out of the game and then we fell asleep."

Utah outrebounded Toronto 47-33 and outshot the Raptors from the field, 51 percent (38-for-75) to 40 percent (34-for-84).

Things started out well for the Raptors in the first quarter, when they used a 15-2 run to open a 22-8 lead with 4:42 left. Christie and Billups each contributed five points to the run.

Utah climbed back game with a 10-2 burst, led by six points from Anderson, that cut the deficit to 24-18. The quarter ended with Toronto holding a 26-20 lead and Billups scoring 10 points.

After Marcus Camby opened up the second quarter with a jumper to give Toronto a 28-20 edge, the Jazz ripped off a 22-7 burst to grab the lead for good.

A layup by Russell triggered the rally and Anderson's two free throws with 5:59 left in the half gave the Jazz the lead for good, 35-33. A free throw by Stockton closed the burst at the 3:28 mark, giving Utah a 42-35 lead. Anderson had 10 of his 12 points in the quarter during the spurt and Russell chipped in with six.

Utah used a 14-3 run in the third quarter to open its biggest lead at 70-55 on a jumper by Hornacek with 4:40 left.

The Raptors cut the deficit to five points twice in the fourth quarter, the last time at 90-85 with 4:12 left following a layup by Wallace.

Utah answered with a 10-4 spurt over the next two-plus minutes. Russell started the burst with a three-pointer and Malone, who had 11 points in the fourth quarter, capped it with a fast-break dunk with 2:05 remaining to make it 100-89.

"They can pick-and-roll in their sleep," Wallace said. "We let Anderson and Russell come off the bench and hurt us. We hung in tough and played well, but that team is a good team and they showed it down the stretch."
