GAME RECAP

Karl Malone collected 28 points and nine rebounds as the Utah Jazz extended their season-high winning streak to 10 games with a 109-98 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Jeff Hornacek added 22 points for the Jazz, who have won 17 of their last 18 games overall and eight in a row on the road. They have scored at least 100 points in each of their last 11 games and moved within one game of the Seattle SuperSonics for the top spot in the Western Conference.

Grant Hill tallied 29 points and Brian Williams had 24 and 14 rebounds for Detroit, which had a two-game winning streak and three-game home winning streak come to an end. The Pistons have dropped 14 of the last 16 meetings with the Jazz, including a 98-89 setback in Utah on January 19th.

"That's a hell of a basketball game," said Detroit interim coach Alvin Gentry. "I don't think it was so much as the way we played, as the way they played. They don't allow you to make any kind of defensive mistakes. There is no consistency in your defense. You are always trying to adjust to what they are trying to do. That's why they are a great team. That is a well-oiled team and hard to play. They just keep coming."

Malone scored seven points in each of the first two quarters to help Utah to a 46-41 halftime advantage. Jerry Stackhouse had 12 of his 19 points for Detroit at the intermission.

Joe Dumars' three-pointer with 7:50 to go in the third period drew the Pistons within 55-53 before Greg Foster's layup started a 17-4 run. Malone had seven points in the spurt, including a jumper with 2:48 left that bumped the gap to 72-57.

Malone had 26 points through three quarters as Utah led 77-66. Howard Eisley's runner extended the Jazz lead to 89-74 with 8:17 remaining, but Steve Henson's seven points sparked a 9-3 Pistons surge that narrowed the deficit to 92-83 with 5:50 to play.

But Hornacek, who missed the last two games with a sprained right knee, scored Utah's next five points to make it 97-84.

"You hate to sit over there and watch," said Hornacek. "It makes me think when I quit playing, I'm not going to watch a lot of games because you're used to the competition and being out there."

John Stockton and Eisley each recorded 11 points and seven assists while Bryon Russell and Shandon Anderson scored 10 points apiece for Utah, which shot 52 percent (38-of-73) from the floor and 90 percent (28-of-31) from the foul line.

"After the third quarter, we did an excellent job with our execution and shot selection," said Utah coach Jerry Sloan. "In the second half we went to a smaller and athletic team and it helped us defensively. Detroit didn't shoot the ball as well as they are capable of. If they made all their open looks, they would have spred our defense and it would have been a tougher ball game for us."

Detroit shot 49 percent (39-of-80) from the field, including 4-for-17 from three-point range.

"They are a team that is not that high-powered, but when you shoot that well from the perimeter, you don't need a whole lot inside with Karl Malone," said Williams. "It leaves us a little dejected. A somber and quiet locker room. It was a nice little dogfight. We just came out on the wrong end of the dog."
