Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Karl Malone scored 19 points in 27 minutes and took the rest of the night off as the first-place Utaz Jazz cruised to their 16th straight victory over the feeble Golden State Warriors, 105-84.

Malone connected on 7-of-9 shots, 5-of-6 free throws and handed out three assists as the Jazz built a comfortable 84-61 cushion entering the final period.

The NBA's third all-time leading scorer took a seat on the bench and watched his teammates remain unbeaten against the Warriors since a 92-83 defeat here on April 14, 1996.

"We just try to go out there and try to do our job and play our game," Malone said. "Every win is important. We take care of our own destiny and not worry about anything else. You can't worry about whose behind you in the playoff race, you just have to continue to play."

The win gave the Jazz a five-game lead over second-place San Antonio in the Midwest Division with seven games remaining.

"I think the important thing is to continue to play basketball," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "You don't know what's going to happen and try to do the best you can to finish up the season so hopefully you have a little bit of momentum. That doesn't mean it's going to translate into wins when you make the playoffs."

Bryon Russell scored 17 points and John Stockton added 14 and 10 assists for Utah, which needs three more victories to wrap up their third division title in four seasons and the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

"We're just trying to play well," Stockton said. "Every night, regardless of who we play and regardless of our standings and try to do a good job every night and get prepared for the playoffs. We don't underestimate (Golden State), we take them seriously and we prepare for the games."

The Jazz improved to 11-2 in their last 13 games away from the Delta Center and are an impressive 23-14 on the road this season.

Larry Hughes scored 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting for Golden State, which looked more like it was scrimmaging with Utah than competing in an NBA game.

"We got down early and that kind of killed us," Hughes said. "They are a tough team all the way around. They play good defense and on offense they are always looking for cutters."

Warriors forward Donyell Marshall left in the first quarter with tendinitis in his left knee and is questionable for Sunday's game against Denver.

Golden State has lost 11 in a row, marking its third skid of at least 10 games this season.

Howard Eisley scored 13 points for Utah, which shot 52 percent (38-of-73) and scored 29 points off turnovers.

Rookie Vonteego Cummings scored 13 points off the bench, Mookie Blaylock had 12 and Tony Farmer added 11 for the Warriors, who shot 40 percent (32-of-80) and held a 40-39 rebounding edge.

Malone had just four points in the opening quarter when the Jazz opened a 25-16 lead. He had a pair of three-point plays late in the first half, helping to extend the margin to 53-32.

The 6-9 power forward added another three-point play, two free throws and a driving layup to make it 76-52 with 4:36 remaining in the third quarter.
