GAME RECAP

Karl Malone scored 23 points to move into fifth place on the all-time scoring list as the Utah Jazz got back on the winning track with a 91-79 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Malone had 12 points and seven of his 16 rebounds in the third quarter, when the Jazz took control of the game. His layup with 10:06 remaining in the period moved him past Elvin Hayes, who scored 27,313 points.

Malone finished with 27,327 career points and needs 83 points to surpass Moses Malone and move into fourth place. Chicago Bulls superstar guard Michael Jordan is third with more than 28,000 points.

"I wish I could've played better than I played but I'm not done," Malone said. "When I retire I'll look back and say it was a good accomplishment. The most important thing is that we won."

Jeff Hornacek and Shandon Anderson scored 11 points apiece for the Jazz, who shot 50 percent (34-of-68) from the field and won for the 12th time in 13 games. They beat the 76ers for the fifth straight time.

"We do a little bit better when we pass the ball," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "The last couple of games we haven't passed the ball and consequently we didn't get as many easy baskets. When we made our run we started to pass the ball better. When they started trapping us, we were able to get decent shots."

Allen Iverson scored 28 points before suffering a sprained right ankle for the injury-depleted 76ers, who had won four of their last five games. Already without injured forwards Derrick Coleman and Joe Smith, Philadelphia lost forward Tim Thomas to a bruised hip with 8:38 left in the third quarter.

"It's life," said Iverson, the only Sixer in double figures. "Other guys have to step up, this is the professional level. You don't belong on this team if you're not a professional. If you are a professional, step up and play like a professional. That's it, the bottom line."

Iverson left with 5:04 to play and did not return. He should be available for Philadelphia's next game Monday against Detroit.

"I didn't know what Timmy's status was," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "Allen is competitive but he played 40 minutes. I thought they had control at that point."

Utah led 41-37 at halftime, but Iverson's drive cut the deficit to 43-41 with 10:25 remaining in the third quarter. However, Malone's milestone points triggered an 18-3 burst.

Malone scored seven points, Adam Keefe added all six of his and Hornacek had five in the run as Philadelphia managed just one basket while committing three turnovers.

"The beginning of the third quarter, they just more or less did anything they wanted," Brown said. "That was the first time Malone even went into the post. That hurt us."

Keefe's layup with 4:16 to go capped the burst and gave Utah its largest lead at 61-44. He also knocked out Thomas, who went down after Keefe slammed into him.

The Jazz held a 69-58 lead after three quarters, but the Sixers closed to 71-63 on a basket by Brian Shaw with 10:44 to play. Utah's Howard Eisley made a technical foul shot as Philadelphia was whistled for its third of four illegal defenses and Malone made a jumper to restore an 11-point lead with 10:05 remaining.

"It's nice to get this one out of our system," Malone said. "This wasn't one of the greatest games we played, but it's a win. When you get beat like we did the other night, it's nice to bounce back. You want to do the little thing and as veteran team you should know what it takes to win."

Greg Foster had 10 points and nine rebounds and Howard Eisley had eight points and seven assists for the Jazz, who held a 41-33 rebounding edge and forced 17 turnovers, six by Iverson.

Shaw had nine points and six assists and Theo Ratliff added nine points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (31-of-70).

A free throw by Thomas capped an 8-0 spurt that gave the Sixers a 14-6 lead with 4:28 left in the first quarter. Philadelphia led 20-15 after one period and still held a 33-27 advantage midway through the second quarter before Utah took the lead for good with an 11-3 run.

Foster scored six points in the burst, including a driving layup that gave the Jazz a 38-36 lead with 2:06 left in the opening half.

"That's a hard team to play against when you don't have everybody," Brown said. "Their bench gave them a life in the second quarter and they outscored us 12-4 just before the half."
