Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Larry Hughes scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half as the Golden State Warriors snapped an 17-game losing streak against the Utah Jazz with a 100-89 victory.

Hughes also dished out a career-high 11 assists and grabbed eight rebounds and Marc Jackson had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Warriors, whose last win over Utah was a 93-82 home triumph on April 14, 1996.

"I didn't know about the streak before we played today," said Golden State forward Antawn Jamison, who had 13 points and 10 rebounds. "But guys had in mind that we had to end this streak and we had to win this game, period. We hadn't found ways to win games and definitely wanted to change that, and guys did that."

"Our record doesn't describe this team," Jamison added. "Even though we're 9-20, we've been in a lot of ballgames. They just haven't been going our way. We definitely feel we can turn things around. We still have a long way to go before the season is over with, so we feel we can turn things around and win basketball games. We still have a chance and are better than our record shows."

The game four years ago was the last in the series in which Karl Malone was not the leading scorer. Malone had 19 points that night and the future Hall of Famer was limited to 12 tonight as the Jazz suffered its season-high third straight loss. During the skid, Malone is averaging just under 14 points.

Bryon Russell scored 19 points and former Warrior John Starks and former Warrior Donyell Marshall added 13 apiece for Utah, which had a three-game road winning streak stopped. The Jazz dropped into a tie with Dallas for first place in Midwest Division.

"Well, they played well," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "From the beginning of the game, they attacked us. They went after us defensively, made it difficult for us to get any decent shots. Consequently, we took a lot of outside shots, put them in the fast-break mode where they were able to get into the open floor, and they just wore us down."

The Jazz trailed by three points after three quarters but tied it at 68-68 with 11:33 left in the fourth quarter. Greg Ostertag made the first of two free throws but missed the second. Marshall grabbed the rebound and put in a layup.

Golden State answered with a 6-0 spurt as Blaylock hit the go-ahead basket from 17 feet in the right corner with 11:16 left.

Russell nailed a 3-pointer with 6:26 remaining to pull Utah within 82-78, but the Warriors scored the next seven points go ahead by 11. They held on to win for only the second time in the last 24 meetings with the Jazz.

"They definately came out fired up, ready to go. They took it to us," Marshall said. "Tonight they weren't scared of us and came out executing, even when we made our run. We took the lead, but they stayed within themselves with their offense and played smart basketball."

Golden State's losing streak to Utah was the longest in the NBA against one team. Miami now owns the longest winning streak over another team, capturing the last 16 meetings with Dallas.

Golden State scored the game's first six points and owned a 19-8 advantage after the first quarter. The eight points were a season low for one quarter for Utah and the fewest by a Warriors' opponent in the opening period.

Blaylock's 3-pointer put the Warriors ahead, 43-34, with 9:46 left in the second quarter before Utah went on a 13-3 run to take its first lead, 47-46.

Blaylock finished with 20 points and eight assists for Golden State, which shot 53 percent (41-for-77) from the field.

"Any win is big for us," Blaylock said. "As a team we've got to strive on what win we get and carry it on to the next ballgame. Right now we're playing well and we've got a good rhythm going. We felt we really played well tonight."

Olden Polynice contributed 10 points and seven rebounds and Marshall pulled down 12 rebounds for the Jazz, who shot 43 percent.

"We've got to take the ball inside," Marshall said. "We're opening up the game, shooting lots of jumpers, instead of taking it inside and going into Karl and milking Karl and then feeding off of that. That's Jazz basketball. We're doing the opposite way. We've got to go inside."
