Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Jerry Sloan returned to the sidelines and the Utah Jazz returned to their winning ways at home.

Sloan, who missed the last two games recuperating from arthroscopic knee surgery, guided the Jazz to an 88-75 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers as Karl Malone scored 21 points. In typical fashion, Sloan picked up a technical foul.

Assistant Phil Johnson guided the Jazz to a 106-95 home win over Dallas and a 97-89 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that snapped the club's franchise-record 20-game home winning streak dating to last season.

Utah took control with a 21-4 run that bridged the second and third quarters. Cleveland managed one basket in 6 1/2 minutes during that stretch.

"We were coming off some pretty good defense when we got the ball on the defensive rebound a couple of times and got it up the court, and that's what you like to see more of," Sloan said. "We're letting some of those things slip away from us at times."

Shawn Kemp scored 16 points for the Cavaliers, who have won just once in Utah in the 1990s.

"Utah is very, very good," Cleveland coach Mike Fratello said. "They're a very good team and they execute extremely well. You guys know about that. They've been together for a while, they play so well together, they're extremely well-coached and they have a terrific basketball team."

Cleveland got off to a slow start as Jeff Hornacek scored eight of his 11 points in the first quarter, helping Utah to a 21-13 lead.

A free throw by Kemp cut the deficit to 32-31 with 2:33 to play in the second quarter before the Cavs went cold. Malone scored six points in a 14-3 burst that closed the quarter and gave the Jazz a 46-34 halftime lead.

Utah started quickly in the third quarter. Hornacek made a jumper and Russell sank two free throws before Hornacek was hit with a technical foul. Brevin Knight converted for Cleveland, but Hornacek made a technical foul shot for an illegal defense and Greg Ostertag hit a layup, giving the Jazz their largest lead at 53-35 with 8:05 left.

Utah took a 66-55 lead to the final period and extended to 70-56 on a free throw by Malone with 10:16 remaining. Quiet to that point, Kemp came to life with seven points in a 10-2 run that cut the deficit to 72-66 with 7:15 remaining.

Utah responded with a 12-3 burst to seal the win. Malone scored five points, and a pair of free throws by Adam Keefe gave Utah an 84-69 bulge with 2:21 left.

"There was a lot of different things going on, but we stayed focused and in the game, and that's the most important thing," Malone said. "But physical? Please. Holding and grabbing, yeah. But we stayed involved in the game and did what we had to do to win. That's the most important thing to do -- bounce back from a tough loss."

Keefe scored a season-high 15 points and added eight rebounds for the Jazz, who shot 47 percent (28-of-60) and made 31-of-41 free throws. Utah also held a 44-28 rebounding advantage as Malone and Ostertag pulled down eight apiece.

"We made a couple of plays to win the game," Sloan said. "Adam Keefe did a great job coming off the bench. I thought Jacque Vaughn did a nice job coming off in the situation he was put in, so it was great to see that."

Person and Danny Ferry each scored 10 points for the Cavs, who shot 34 percent (22-of-64) and made 28-of-33 from the line. Starters Kemp, Vitaly Potepenko and Brevin Knight fouled out.

"Losing Shawn and Brevin early to foul trouble completely took us out of our offense," Person said. "Shawn's our go-to player so we can't have them guys sitting on the bench. And they sure took advantage of that."
