Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- John Stockton used his temper to set the tempo.

After being called for a technical foul, Stockton scored six of his 22 points in a decisive second-quarter burst that gave the Utah Jazz a 119-108 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

The game featured seven technicals but none as important as the one called against Stockton, who was arguing a foul call midway through the second quarter. He responded with six points in an 11-2 run that gave Utah a 53-38 lead with 2:56 remaining in the first half.

"Everyone came out to play," Stockton said. "We focused in on what we needed to do defensively. It's amazing what kind of lift offensively that gives us."

The 37-year-old Stockton, who played in his 10th All-Star Game on Sunday, made 9-of-12 shots and fell one point shy of his season high. He added 10 assists and limited flashy Kings point guard Jason Williams to 2-of-10 shooting.

After Stockton's explosion, the Jazz never trailed, turning back a handful of rallies by the Kings. Karl Malone had 30 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists and Jeff Hornacek scored 22 points for Utah, which shot 52.5 percent (42-of-80) from the field.

"I thought we had a lot better effort in the first half," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think we were aware that they were going to come back into the ballgame. Of course, we didn't let them get all the way back in."

"I think we came out ready to play," Malone said. "It's the first time I've seen us play like that for a long time and it's kind of refreshing."

In what is becoming a fierce rivalry, the Jazz (30-19) moved one-half game ahead of the Kings (30-20) into fourth place in the Western Conference standings.

Chris Webber scored 22 points and Corliss Williamson added 18 for Sacramento, which has lost 12 straight regular-season visits to Utah. The Kings did win Game Two of the first round of the 1999 playoffs at the Delta Center.

Webber and center Vlade Divac had technical fouls and reserve guard Darrick Martin picked up two and was ejected seconds after Stockton's technical. Malone had a technical foul and the Jazz were whistled for an illegal defense.

"I'm not sure why there were so many technical fouls tonight. There could be many reasons why," Webber said. "I do think the intensity of the series is one of them and we definitely wanted to win and we weren't successful, so I think that could be it."

Utah took the lead for good at 29-28 on a dunk by Greg Ostertag with 11:07 left in the second quarter. The Jazz widened the margin to 42-35 on two free throws by Armen Gilliam with 6:12 remaining, but Stockton was whistled for a foul and a technical nine seconds later.

After Jon Barry made the foul shot, Stockton and Martin went at it. Stockton was called for an offensive foul, then drew a foul from Martin, who argued and was ejected.

Hornacek made a free throw and Stockton sank two before capping the burst with a layup and long jumper for a 15-point lead.

"Emotions were riding high at times and that's one thing about Utah that makes them win," Webber said. "No matter who's in the game is the fact that they keep their composure and stay in it all the time."

The Jazz led 64-47 at halftime and opened their largest margin at 69-47 when Hornacek made a free throw following a technical on Divac with 10:42 remaining in the third quarter.

A jumper by Stockton kept the lead at 77-58 before the Kings went on a 13-2 run, capped by a free throw by Williams after a technical on Malone that cut the deficit to 79-71 with 3:40 left.

A 3-pointer by Nick Anderson moved Sacramento within 90-85 with 30 seconds left before Hornacek answered with a 3-pointer.

The Jazz scored seven of the first nine points of the fourth quarter. The Kings battled back to 104-98 on a jumper by Tony Delk with 5:09 remaining before Utah sealed it with a 9-2 run. Hornacek's 3-pointer made it 113-100 with 2:50 to go.

"We had a nice run in the third quarter and in the start of the fourth, but we couldn't sustain it," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They made big shots to keep us away."

Bryon Russell scored 14 points and Gilliam added 10 for the Jazz, who held a 43-37 rebounding edge and committed just 11 turnovers. Hornacek, the two-time defending Long Distance Shootout champion, was 4-of-4 from beyond the arc.

"We made some shots," he said. "John was aggressive when we ran the high pick-and-rolls and he made some great passes and when they didn't come to help, he shot. That was a big key for us."

Predrag Stojakovic scored 15 points and Williams handed out nine assists for the Kings, who shot 44 percent (34-of-77) and made 35-of-43 free throws.
