Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Coach Jerry Sloan was not on the bench, but it hardly mattered as the Utah Jazz defeated the Dallas Mavericks, 106-95, to set a franchise record with their 20th consecutive home victory.

Sloan, who has had led Utah to consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals, missed just his second contest in 15 years with the team after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

Sloan has been on the bench for 1,151 out of a possible 1,153 games since joining Utah as an assistant coach in 1984. He was suspended by the NBA for the April 17, 1993 game against Phoenix after being ejected in the previous contest for bumping referee Bob Delaney.

"I imagine he's a lot better now than when we were losing that lead," said Phil Johnson, who served as Utah's interim coach. "I imagine he probably threw the TV against the wall."

Karl Malone scored 30 points for Utah, which appeared headed for an easy win, opening an 83-61 cushion on Howard Eisley's 3-pointer with 1:37 remaining in the third quarter. But Dallas made it interesting in the final minutes.

Hubert Davis' 3-pointer capped a 14-2 run that cut the deficit to 94-87 with 2:50 remaining. John Stockton answered with two free throws and Jeff Hornacek hit a jumper, giving the Jazz a more comfortable 98-87 margin with 2:12 left.

In keeping pace with Portland and Orlando as the only teams with perfect home marks this year, the Jazz improved to 8-0 at home and have not lost at the Delta Center in the regular season since a 104-102 defeat to Miami on February 24, 1998. However, Utah did lose three home playoff games last year, including Game Six of the NBA Finals to Chicago.

Hornacek added 18 points for the Jazz, who also notched their 24th consecutive home victory over Dallas. The Mavericks have not won at Salt Lake City since February 9, 1989 and have dropped nine straight in the series.

Utah beat Dallas for the third time this season. The Jazz posted a 90-79 at Dallas on February 9, then tied a franchise record for fewest points allowed in an 80-65 home victory over the Mavericks on February 26.

"This was a very tough game for us because of the way they (Dallas) didn't compete against us the last time we played, and we were very concerned about it, at least as a coaching staff," Johnson said.

"It was a much closer game than last week but it shouldn't have been," Utah center Greg Ostertag added. "We got lackadaisical there and the end with about six minutes to go and they put on a little run that never should have really happened."

Michael Finley scored 29 points for the Mavericks, who have dropped three of their last four and fell to 2-9 on the road this season. Shawn Bradley and Dirk Nowitzki added 10 apiece for Dallas.

"We zone-trapped them a lot during the game and it was successful some of the time," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "We stayed with it and got back in the game. Finley did a great job and I thought Bradley was good again."

Bryon Russell added 13 points for Utah, including two foul shots that capped a 9-2 run and gave the Jazz a 54-42 lead with 58 seconds left in the first half.

Malone scored 13 points in the third period, helping the Jazz build their lead to 84-63. Rod Stickland hit a 3-pointer to cut Utah's lead to 84-66 entering the final period.

After Malone's 10-footer gave Utah a 92-73 lead with 7:14 left, the Mavericks began their comeback. Davis had seven points in the run and Bradley five.

Utah responded, however, putting the game away with an 8-4 run. The Jazz stretched their lead to 102-94 on Thurl Bailey's jumper with 1:03 left.

"I don't know if you just keeping hustling and trying to work they'll (Utah) let you back in the game," Bradley said. "But they'll also come back and finish it off."

"We played well enough to win," Stockton added. "It was a strange game, so we just tried to hang in there and run some semblance of an offense."
