Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz won the final game of the regular season. They hope to win the final game of the postseason as well.

Armen Gilliam scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter as the Jazz fought off the Sacramento Kings, 95-86, in the last contest of the 1,189-game NBA season.

The Jazz (55-27) finished atop the Midwest Division for the fourth straight season and are seeded second in the Western Conference. Losers to Chicago in the 1997 and 1998 NBA Finals, they open their 17th straight postseason appearance against the Seattle SuperSonics.

"We have a lot of respect for that team," Jazz star guard John Stockton said. "They played very well the last couple of games to get in the position to basically play us. They're scrappers and it should be a tough battle."

"The guys have done a tremendous job, I think," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "This team overcame a great deal of deficiencies. You look at all the things that happened -- we got a new director of player personnel and all of the other changes in the organization. We hated to see those people change, but we still tried to fight back through all of that stuff."

The Kings (44-38) also are headed for the postseason, albeit as the West's eighth seed. That makes them the first-round foe of the powerful Los Angeles Lakers, who are the favorites to win the NBA title.

"It starts all over again," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We've got to get ourselves in the mind-set to play the Lakers and see what we have to do to be successful. ... We're in the playoffs the second year in a row and it's going to be a challenge. But we've competed against them (Lakers) all year."

"We ain't scared of the Lakers, man," Kings guard Jason Williams said. "I don't know why y'all keep wanting us to say we're scared of the Lakers. We ain't scared of the Lakers."

In the first round of the 1999 playoffs, these teams played the most exciting series of the postseason, with Utah winning in five games. Tonight's contest had none of that intensity as the primary objective was to keep everyone healthy.

Karl Malone and Jeff Hornacek scored 18 points apiece for the Jazz, who used all 12 players between 12 and 25 minutes. Utah shot 43 percent (36-of-84) from the field and and held a 50-38 rebounding edge.

Darrick Martin scored 16 points and fellow reserve Lawrence Funderburke added 14 for the Kings, who shot 40.5 percent (32-of-79) and scored just 11 points in the fourth quarter.

The Kings led 49-47 at halftime and the teams traded huge runs in the third quarter. Malone scored nine points in a 21-0 explosion capped by Hornacek's 3-pointer that gave the Jazz a 70-56 lead with 5:38 remaining. But Sacramento responded with a 14-2 burst over the final 4:15 of the period to pull within 76-75 entering the last 12 minutes.

Gilliam took over from there as he nearly matched Sacramento's total for the fourth quarter.

Kings starters Chris Webber and Nick Anderson were placed on the injured list prior to the game and did not play.
