Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Karl Malone scored eight of his 21 points during a decisive second-quarter run as the Utah Jazz extended their season-high winning streak to four games with a 101-83 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics.

Malone shot 7-of-14 from the field and grabbed 11 rebounds as he continues to power the Jazz. During the winning streak, he is averaging 27.8 points and 11.5 rebounds.

"I think it's definitely the best effort we've given all year," Malone said. "We played with a lot of intensity, guys did a lot of things that we kept them at bay pretty much the whole night."

John Stockton collected 15 points, 10 assists and six steals for the Jazz, who never trailed and led by as many as 20 points in avenging a 99-94 loss to Seattle on November 6. Stockton scored six points during the second-quarter surge.

"This is a good win. We needed to settle down," said Stockton, whose club begins a seven-game road trip on Monday. "We're playing a little bit better, we've done that, but it's a different story out on the road. We have a lot of games coming up out there."

"I said the other day I thought our guys were concentrating better the last four or five games," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "I don't know if it always means wins but in order to get everyone back to playing together and concentrating on doing the right things, you have to have much better concentration than what we had to start with."

Gary Payton had 22 points and 10 assists for the SuperSonics, who shot below 40 percent (30-of-76) from the field, committed 21 turnovers and were outrebounded, 49-34.

"If you were to come into a game and say you're going to have 20 turnovers against the Jazz, you can count it up as an `L' because they are a great executing team," Seattle forward Vin Baker said.

The Jazz led 23-21 after one quarter and the Sonics closed to 33-32 on a free throw by Rashard Lewis with 6:05 left in the second period.

Two foul shots by Stockton triggered the pivotal burst. Adam Keefe also scored four points in the run, including a dunk off a feed from Stockton that capped it at 51-35 with 1:29 left in the first half.

"They certainly didn't look like they are aging or slowing down out there," Sonics coach Paul Westphal said. "They are a very talented and very good team. They know their offense and when they run it to perfection it's very difficult to beat them."

Utah led 55-39 at halftime and maintained a double-digit edge throughout the third quarter. A layup by Lewis opened the final period and cut the deficit to 75-65 before the Jazz used a 7-0 surge to put away the game.

Howard Eisley made a jumper and rookie forward Quincy Lewis had a layup. Malone was flagrantly fouled by Brent Barry and made 1-of-2 free throws before another layup by Lewis off an inbounds pass made it 82-65 with 9:40 remaining.

Utah opened its largest lead at 99-79 on a 3-pointer by Eisley with 44 seconds left.

Jeff Hornacek scored 19 points and Greg Ostertag added 11, nine rebounds and four blocks for the Jazz, who shot 45 percent (39-of-86) and made 20-of-25 free throws.

"A win is a win, so it don't really matter who you are playing," Malone said. "Seattle is one of the best teams in the league and to be able to get a win like this before you go on a road trip gives you a lot of momentum."

Barry scored 15 points and Baker added 11 and 10 rebounds for the Sonics, who were 7-of-20 from 3-point range and 16-of-26 from the line. Seattle lost forward-center Horace Grant to an injury in the first half.
