Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Karl Malone picked up where he left off and when the Vancouver Grizzlies were still hanging around in the fourth quarter, the All-Star scored eight straight points to lead the Utah Jazz to a 92-82 victory.

Malone, who tied his own team record by shooting 12-of-12 in Saturday's 111-91 victory over undermanned Seattle, hit his first four shots before missing a 12-footer from the left corner with 2:14 to play in the first quarter. He scored 11 points in the period, when Utah took a 27-21 lead.

The Grizzlies, trying to defeat the Jazz at home for the first time, were competitive throughout and closed to 79-78 when Shareef Abdur-Rahim hit two free throws with 4 1/2 minutes remaining. Then Malone took over.

The 13-time All-Star made two free throws with 4:13 left to push the lead to 81-78 and hit an 18-footer 63 seconds later. After a turnover by Michael Dickerson, Malone nailed another 18-footer to give the Jazz a seven-point lead with 2:24 to play.

"Vancouver held in there a while tonight," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "I thought they played a solid game. But Karl came up big for us. He got on a roll and was knocking down his shot, and that was basically the difference. It's tough for anyone to guard Karl when he gets on a roll and gets his confidence."

Dickerson missed a jumper and, after Bryon Russell grabbed the rebound, Malone hit a jumper from the right sideline for an 87-78 cushion with 1:39 left.

The 37-year-old Malone finished with 34 points and eight rebounds as the Jazz improved to 10-0 all-time in Vancouver.

Donyell Marshall, Utah's other starting forward, added 24 and six as the Jazz won for the eighth time in nine games and maintained a half-game lead over second-place San Antonio in the Midwest Division. John Stockton made just 1-of-9 shots but handed out 14 assists while committing just two turnovers.

"We came out and played our game down the stretch and we ran the bread-and -butter plays and made them guard it," Malone said. "I've shot the ball tons of times, I think 23,000 field goals or something like that. But when you start to get on a roll, the basket looks big and the guys are giving you the opportunity, especially Stockton. He was telling me the ball was going to me every time down the floor."

The Grizzlies committed two of their 19 turnovers during Malone's 8-0 run. After Abdur-Rahim made a free throw with 1:23 left, Danny Manning answered with a layup and Marshall completed a three-point play to push Utah's lead to 92-79 with 61 seconds remaining.

"Karl came through big, that's his job," Marshall said. "He comes out (and) plays hard, that's why he's an All-Star. He came out there and made some big buckets and that's why he's out there at the end of the game. He got hot and that's why we call him `The Mailman.'"

Dickerson broke out of a shooting funk and led the Grizzlies with 27 points. The 6-5 guard knocked down 11-of-21 shots after clicking at 30 percent (17-of-57) in his previous four games.

Abdur-Rahim added 20 points on 5-of-17 shooting. Frontcourt mate Grant Long was scoreless in 18 minutes.

"He is who he is. He's done that his whole career," Abdur-Rahim said of Malone. "I tried to make it tough on him, tried to get in his face and play defense. But he is what he is, and down the strech he showed that. That's why he's one of the great players."

The Grizzlies shot 41 percent (29-of-70) and have lost 22 straight games to Western Conference foes. Vancouver is firmly entrenched in the Midwest basement, 11 games behind sixth-place Houston.

Marshall scored 18 points in the first half, helping the Jazz take a 44-42 lead into the locker room.
