Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- That's pride.

Veteran superstar John Stockton came up with a key steal and layup in the final seconds as the Utah Jazz snapped their longest losing streak in nearly 17 years with a 93-90 victory over the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs.

Karl Malone scored 25 points for the Jazz, NBA finalists in 1997 and 1998 who ended their first six-game losing streak since March 19-29, 1983 -- more than a year before Stockton became an NBA player.

"It's only one win, but it's going to feel a lot better just walking around the house than it did after the previous one, so it's a start," Stockton said.

The all-time assists and steals leader, Stockton scored seven of his 16 points in the fourth quarter for an aging team that on Friday matched the second-worst loss in franchise history, 113-67 to the Los Angeles Lakers.

With Utah trailing 90-89, Stockton stripped superstar Tim Duncan in the lane and banked home a layup over the shot-blocking forward at the other end for a 91-90 lead with 16 seconds left.

"Stockton made some big plays there right at the end," Spurs All-Star center David Robinson said. "That's our defense. That's what we've got to take pride in. That's what wins games for us."

Duncan scored 32 points but forced a miss from 16 feet against Malone after Stockton's layup and threw up an air ball from 3-point range as time expired. Bryon Russell sank a pair of free throws between the misses for the final margin.

"They started doubling in the second half," Duncan said. "They started coming in a little quicker. I still had opportunities to take and make shots. I just didn't make any shots down the stretch."

"Everything he got, we wanted to have some pressure on him and make it difficult for him," said Jazz forward Armen Gilliam, who had eight of his 10 points and five of his seven rebounds in the fourth quarter.

Robinson scored just 11 points for the Spurs, who had won four of their previous five games. They are just 6-5 in their last 11.

"The game was a great game. It was a war," Spurs coach Greg Popovich said. "Both teams busted their butts. Both teams played great `D'."

Utah moved within 2 1/2 games of first-place San Antonio in the Midwest Division and leads the season series, 2-1. The teams meet for the final time in the regular season on April 15 in San Antonio.

"To come out and get a win against San Antonio -- we're going to end up in a run with them for the top spot toward the end of the season -- we needed this win," Jazz guard Jeff Hornacek said.

The Jazz led for the first 8 1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter before a layup by Duncan and jumper by Avery Johnson put the Spurs ahead, 88-86, with 2:40 to play.

Stockton followed with a 3-pointer, but after a pair of empty possessions, veteran Terry Porter gave San Antonio a 90-89 edge on a driving layup with 69 seconds left.

Malone missed from 10 feet with 48 seconds to go, setting up Stockton's dramatics. He came off his man under the basket and stripped Duncan from behind before racing the other way for the decisive layup.

Stockton finished with nine assists and one steal in only 28 minutes, picking up his fourth foul with 7:38 left in the third quarter.

Malone was just 7-of-20 from the floor but hit 11-of-13 free throws and added six rebounds and six assists. Hornacek and Russell combined for 33 points.

Both teams had their biggest leads in the third quarter. The Spurs were ahead by seven at halftime and 57 seconds into the third, but a 15-2 run gave the Jazz a 64-57 advantage with 6:23 to play in the period.

Hornacek scored the final seven points in the run, sinking a driving layup, 3-pointer and 21-footer.

Johnson scored 10 points for San Antonio, which shot just 42 percent from the field (33-of-78) and lost the rebounding battle, 39-32. Duncan grabbed 10 boards.
