Game Recap

Karl Malone knocked out David Robinson with an elbow, then scored 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Utah Jazz clinched their second straight Midwest Division title with a 98-88 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Robinson suffered a concussion at the 9:32 mark of the first quarter. As Malone was cutting through the lane, Robinson grabbed him by the arm. Malone swung around and caught Robinson with an elbow to the jaw.

Robinson was out for a couple of minutes before he was revived and helped to the locker room. He was taken to LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, where a CAT scan was negative. Robinson was admitted for neurological observation and was being held overnight.

"You go out and play and it's a physical game," Malone said when asked if he intentionally elbowed Robinson. "You know you give and you take but it's an unfortunate thing to happen. I post up hard and when I get the basketball I look to go to the hole and that's part of it. It's unfortunate because I wouldn't do it to a guy I didn't like and I sure wouldn't do it it to David because I like him. It's disappointing (San Antonio) would think things like that."

"We couldn't be more proud of our basketball team tonight, thank you very much," was all that San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich had to say after the game.

Stockton added 17 points and nine assists and Jeff Hornacek had 15 points for the Jazz, who have won five straight and 10 of their last 11 games. They have a one-game lead over Seattle for the top seed in the Western Conference and have won nine in a row at home.

"First of all, we hope he's OK because he's a great competitor," John Stockton said of Robinson. "Outside of that you just have to keep playing the game and that's the hard part. You feel sorry for him and continue playing the game. We just hung in there."

Tim Duncan scored 34 points and had seven rebounds and Reggie Geary added 13 points for the Spurs, who have lost six of their last seven meetings with Utah. In addition to Robinson, point guard Avery Johnson was sidelined with a hip pointer.

"This is something you store in your memory and you keep it back there. You know that there is going to be a next time, and when it comes, we're going to be ready," Duncan said. "It's time for payback. That's the only thing we can say about that. If it gets to the playoffs and we're up against them, it's going to be a whole different game.

"I don't know what happened. I saw him (Robinson) hit the floor. My first thought was that he dislocated his shoulder because he had his shoulder in an odd position. I thought maybe they got their arms tangled and it popped out."

Robinson's absence was evident on the boards, as the Jazz outrebounded the Spurs 43-29, with Adam Keefe collecting eight and Greg Ostertag seven off the bench.

San Antonio built a 38-33 lead after Geary sank a pair of free throws with 4:11 left in the second quarter. Utah answered with a 15-5 run to close out the first half, with Malone contributing nine of those points. Malone's two free throws at 1:56 gave the Jazz the lead for good, 41-40, and capped the spurt with two more free throws to give the Jazz a 48-43 lead at the break.

After a layup by Stockton made it 54-45 early in the third quarter, San Antonio scored eight straight points, capped by a three-pointer from Brad Lohaus, to pull within 54-53 at the 5:12 mark.

That was as close as San Antonio would come, as the Jazz scored seven of the next nine points, with a jumper by Malone giving Utah a 61-55 advantage.

The Spurs made one last push late in the fourth quarter and drew within 92-88 with 1:28 remaining after Jaren Jackson drained a three-pointer. But a jumper by Malone and two free throws apiece from Stockton and Bryon Russell down the stretch accounted for the final margin.

"I thought we played pretty well," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We got a little bit tired at times but we tried to play through that. They've got a big team and a big lineup and it's hard to play against them. We played a little more quick than I wanted but that also helped us at times."
