Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- You only need one really good quarter to beat a really bad team.

Karl Malone scored 17 of his 29 points in the third quarter as the Utah Jazz dominated the period en route to their 14th consecutive victory over the lifeless Golden State Warriors, 94-82.

The Jazz (9-7) were hoping to recover from Friday's embarrassing 100-75 home loss to Indiana and ran into the perfect victims tonight. Utah has won 19 of the last 20 meetings with Golden State since March 1995, with the lone loss coming in Oakland on April 14, 1996.

The Warriors (2-14) trailed 45-43 at the half before Malone and the Jazz dashed their hopes of snapping their losing streak, which grew to nine games.

The 6-9 power forward hit 6-of-7 shots and grabbed six of his 14 rebounds during the 12-minute stretch, enabling Utah to outscore Golden State, 26-18.

"Malone has had stretches where things may not go especially well. But when he gets on a roll it's tough to keep the ball away from him," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said.

"It's important that we got a win," Malone added. "We kept our composure and did the things that we needed to do. We exectuted really well in the third quarter and opened up a lead."

Warriors forward Chris Mills opened the second half by hitting a 10-footer that forged a 45-45 tie. Malone answered with a three-point play to put the Jazz ahead for good and scored six points during an 11-2 run that gave Utah a 69-59 cushion with 1:34 left in the quarter.

"Any time you have a tough game like we did last night, and to be able to bounce back on a team who has been waiting here in their own building, no matter who it is, is a big win for us," Malone said. "We need those wins and I think in that third quarter, we executed really well, we opened up the lead and were able to put it away."

Bryon Russell scored 17 points and Howard Eisley added 12 for Utah, which had lost three of its previous four games.

"(Malone) got hot and if he gets hot, go to him," Russell said. "We kept going back to him and I mean he was making some good shots. It wasn't luck, but good shots."

Mills scored a season-high 24 points for the Warriors, who have not won since a 99-79 home victory over the league-worst Chicago Bulls on November 16. Golden State's only other victory came against the 3-13 Vancouver Grizzlies.

"We were in there and Karl made some big plays in the third quarter," Mills said. "They're a smart team and they're used to playing with each other. They've been doing it for years and they kept their composure. We made our run and they showed they're a good team."

Antawn Jamison scored 17 points and Mookie Blaylock added 14 for Golden State, which failed to reach 100 points for the 13th time in 16 games.

Jason Caffey scored 10 points for the Warriors, who had lost their previous five games by an average of 18 points and entered the contest allowing 104.6 points per game.

Golden State appeared ready to challenge from the outset as it trailed 22-19 after one quarter and by two points at the half. But Malone proved too much in the the third period and the Warriors never mounted a serious challenge after his explosion.

"I thought (the Warriors) did a pretty good job of hanging in there with us tonight," Sloan said. "They made some hustle plays and the most important thing is when you're on the road, there are no easy games. It's tough to win unless things fall apart and I thought they held in pretty well against us tonight."

Jamison's 16-footer pulled Golden State within 58-57 with 4:50 remaining in the third quarter. Malone made two at the line and hit a short jumper to build the lead back to five. The teams exchanged baskets before Eisley hit a free throw, Jeff Hornacek made two more and Malone sank a 12-footer from the left side to open a 69-59 lead for the Jazz.

"We didn't approach (Malone) differently in the second half," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "Our double team started getting there late and a couple of their players stepped up. He did a better job of getting the ball down low in the second half. He wasn't hitting his outside jumper like he usually does against us, so he started getting the ball down low and putting it in the basket."

Jamison made a layup on Utah's ensuing trip but Malone responded with a follow shot with 22 seconds left, giving Utah a 71-61 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

Hornacek scored 10 points for the Jazz, who shot 46 percent (32-of-70) and forced 19 turnovers.

The Warriors shot 40 percent and held a commanding 48-35 advantage on the boards, but were just 16-of-29 from the line, including a dreadful 3-of-11 performance by Jamison.

"It was really bad for us. I'm an 80 percent shooter and I missed three," Mills said. "I felt kind of rusty in the beginning and Antawn couldn't get it going from the line. There are big things we've got to do, like make free throws and play tough defense."
