Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- As long as the ball was in John Stockton's hands, the Utah Jazz were just fine.

Stockton scored 12 of his 20 points and ran a flawless floor game in the final nine minutes as the Jazz rallied for a 94-90 victory over the Sacramento Kings, who again were without Chris Webber.

The NBA's runaway all-time leader in assists and steals, Stockton was practically perfect down the stretch. With his precision shooting and passing, he outclassed Kings point guards Jason Williams and Bobby Jackson on nearly every possession.

"Our defense got a little bit better down the stretch," Stockton said in his usual understated fashion. "Offensively, we executed."

Via a basket or assist, Stockton was responsible for 20 of the Jazz's 24 points until Karl Malone made two clinching foul shots with 5.4 seconds to go. The 38-year-old point guard was 6-of-6 from the field with four of his eight assists in the last nine minutes.

"They were paying attention to Karl and Donyell all the time and fortunately a couple shots went in and we were able to get the win," Stockton said.

"They ran their pick-and-roll until the end," Jackson said. "They executed well on offense."

Donyell Marshall scored a season-high 31 points with 14 rebounds and Malone added 24 and nine for the Jazz, who avenged a 97-94 overtime loss to Sacramento six days ago. In that game, Webber sprained his ankle at the end of regulation.

"It's always our plan to go inside to Karl," Marshall said. "I just think we were able to do it a little more since Webber was out."

The forward tandem of Marshall and Malone kept the Jazz in it through three quarters before Stockton took over in the final period.

"Once John drove, a lot of their guys turned their backs and I was able to sneak in and get the easy layups," added Marshall, who made 10-of-17 shots.

Peja Stojakovic scored 27 points but missed a potential tying shot in the final seconds for the Kings, who fell to 21-5 at home. Sacramento never trailed for the first 43 minutes but never regained the lead upon losing it.

"It was tough, we were there the whole game," Stojakovic said. "At the end they were more focused than we were."

The Jazz have won 14 of their last 17 games. The Kings fell to 1-2 without Webber, their All-Star forward who is expected to miss one more game.

A layup by Stockton cut Utah's deficit to 76-70 with 8:59 to go and began his streak. Two free throws by Kings rookie Hidayet Turkoglu made it 81-74, but Stockton sank a jumper and made two drives around a pair of free throws by John Starks to give the Jazz their first lead at 82-81 with 4:45 remaining.

Stojakovic made a free throw, but Stockton drove for another hoop and shoveled a pass to Marshall for a dunk and an 86-82 lead with 3 1/2 minutes to go. After two free throws by Jason Williams pulled Sacramento within 88-86, Stockton made a 15-foot jumper and fed Malone for a basket that made it 92-86 with 1:37 left.

Stojakovic made two free throws and a drive to cut the deficit to a bucket with 36 seconds remaining. The Jazz did not get the ball to Stockton and Doug Christie stripped Starks for his sixth steal, eventually setting up Stojakovic's miss.

The Jazz shot 41.5 percent (34-of-82), made 24-of-25 free throws and held a 46-39 rebounding edge.

"They beat us on the boards again, like they did last time," Stojakovic said. "I think that was the key."

Vlade Divac scored 16 points, Jackson added 14 and Williams 10 for the Kings, who shot 42 percent (31-of-74) and made 25-of-31 from the line.

Sacramento led by as many as 13 points in the first half before settling for a 44-39 halftime advantage behind 18 points from Stojakovic. Marshall scored 15 points in the third quarter but Utah trailed 71-64 entering the final period.

"I don't know if we were sleepwalking or what, but they just manhandled us all day until the last part of the ballgame," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said.
