Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Apparently 48 minutes is not enough when the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings square off. The weary Jazz somehow won the rubber match, ending their recent overtime troubles.

Veterans Karl Malone -- back after a one-game league suspension -- and John Stockton were too much for the youthful Kings as the Jazz pulled off a 105-100 victory in the third overtime meeting between the teams this season.

Malone had 30 points and 10 rebounds and hit the first two baskets in overtime off feeds from Stockton as Utah took control, running its season-high winning streak to eight games. The Jazz remained tied with Portland for the league's best record at 29-8 and ended a four-game losing streak in overtime contests.

Stockton assisted on Utah's first three buckets in overtime, including Malone's basket in the lane with 2:48 left that forged a 97-97 tie. Those were two of the Jazz's 36 points off 26 turnovers by the Kings.

Malone then faked Corliss Williamson on a jumper, drove the lane and hit a lay-in to put Utah ahead for good. Stockton's pass to Greg Foster on the fast break led to a layup that made it 101-97.

"They turned the ball over, fortunately, a couple of times and missed a couple of shots," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "And that's all you can hope for. Fortunately, we were able to score, otherwise we were in trouble."

Kings rookie Jason Williams threw away a pass that Jeff Hornacek flipped ahead to Bryon Russell, whose layup pushed the lead to 103-97 with 1:25 to go. Rookie Predrag Stojakovic answered with a 3-pointer and Sacramento had a chance to tie after Foster missed two free throws.

But Williams attempted a wild 3-pointer that was well off the mark and Vlade Divac missed badly on his attempt from beyond the arc.

Hornacek helped put away the game with two free throws and Chris Webber missed a high, arching 3-pointer in the final seconds.

"No more moral victories, overtime or not," Webber said. "Maybe next year, once we win a championship or something, we can look back and say those were great lessons. But not now, things are too cloudy."

Malone returned after serving his suspension for throwing a punch at Houston's Othella Harrington in Sunday's 85-76 win. Without Malone, the Jazz coasted to a 98-80 victory over Vancouver.

Playing their third game in as many nights and fifth in six days, the last thing the Jazz needed was overtime. But it was inevitable against the Kings.

Russell contributed 24 points and hit five 3-pointers for Utah, which needed double overtime to defeat Sacramento on February 15, 120-112. Following that victory, the Jazz lost four straight overtime games, including a 104-101 setback at Sacramento on March 30. That was Utah's last loss of any kind.

"I don't know why the Kings match up so well. They just play us hard," Russell said. "Three overtime games, damn. They're a great team, what can you say? They play us so much better than most teams."

This contest featured several technical fouls and the ejection of Jazz center Greg Ostertag in the third quarter after he was involved in an altercation with Divac.

Williamson scored 22 points, Divac had 17 and 13 rebounds and Webber added 16 and 16 for the Kings, who dropped one game behind Phoenix for the final playoff spot in the West.

"If you don't take care of the ball, you're not going to beat a team like Utah, or many other teams for that matter," said Kings coach Rick Adelman. "It's something where if it's a hard lesson to learn, we certainly learned one tonight."

With 8:25 left in the third, Ostertag and Divac received technical fouls after battling under the boards and jawing at each other. Just over a minute later, Divac drove the lane and was floored by a blatant forearm from Ostertag.

"I didn't mean to tackle him like that," Ostertag said. "I just meant to give him a hard foul. I guess I caught him pretty good."

Webber and Williamson managed some minor retaliation against Ostertag, each drawing a technical foul. Hornacek hit both free throws and Divac sank both foul shots after Ostertag's ejection. Seconds later, Adelman was slapped with a technical for arguing an offensive foul against Webber.

A layup by Malone with 5:17 left gave the Jazz a 66-62 lead, Williams answered with a 3-pointer to spark the Kings' 11-0 burst. Divac tied the game with a free throw after Malone was hit with a technical foul.

A pair of baskets by Webber capped the run, making it 73-66 with 2:06 remaining. Sacramento went on to take a 77-70 lead at the end of the period.

The Kings had an 83-70 lead on Williamson's jumper early in the fourth, but Utah stormed back with a 15-3 burst. Russell contributed a pair of inside baskets before Malone capped the run with a short hook shot, cutting the deficit to 86-85.

Two free throws by Stockton tied it, 95-95, with 11.9 seconds left. After Malone tipped away a pass by Divac, Stockton had a chance to win in regulation but missed a baseline jumper at the buzzer.
