Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics, who are trying to remain in the Western Conference playoff picture, managed to hang around with the Utah Jazz for 43 minutes. Then Karl Malone and Donyell Marshall took over.

Malone scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and Marshall added 10 as the Jazz pulled away for their seventh straight road win, a 96-84 triumph over the SuperSonics.

Malone and Marshall each made 4-of-5 shots in the final period, when Utah shot 55 percent (11-of-20) and outscored Seattle, 29-17. Malone finished with 33 points and 10 rebounds and Marshall added 20 and six, helping the Jazz remain 1 1/2 games in front of second-place San Antonio in the Midwest Division.

"I'm just happy to help the team in any way I can," Marshall said. "We're starting to play defense and picking it up."

Utah has won all three meetings with Seattle this season and is percentage points behind Portland for the top spot in the West.

"They only come out one way, and that's to win," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said of the Jazz. "They play hard, they play for 48 minutes. I expected this game to be as tough as it was."

Gary Payton collected 19 points and eight assists and Ruben Patterson added 17 points and eight rebounds off the bench for Seattle, which made just 5-of-14 shots in the fourth quarter and wrapped up a disappointing 1-3 homestand.

Rashard Lewis had 16 points and eight boards for the Sonics, who fell four games behind Minnesota for the final playoff spot in the West.

Utah shot an uncharacteristic 68 percent (21-of-31) from the free-throw line but dominated inside, outscoring Seattle in the paint, 44-26.

John Stockton, who had nine points and six assists, made a jumper to put the Jazz ahead for good, 69-67, with 9:22 remaining. He sank a 16-footer to push the lead to 78-71 with 6 1/2 minutes to play.

Seattle came back as Patterson sank two free throws with 5:46 left and Payton nailed a 3-pointer to trim the deficit to 78-76 with 4:49 to go.

"We're getting better," Stockton said. "I don't know where we need to be. We try to play against ourselves, regardless of what they're doing. We try to do the things we do well and if we do that, then we're successful. If we don't do that and the other team does, then we're in trouble."

Malone made a 15-footer 21 seconds later to trigger a 9-0 burst. He followed with an 18-footer and, after Marshall converted a three-point play, made a layup for an 87-76 cushion with 3:06 left.

"We had a tough game last night and they were sitting here, waiting on us to come into their building," Malone said, referring to Thursday's 90-84 victory over Portland. "They need wins and now we've got the tiebreaker, and that's what you want to do."

Patterson scored 11 points in the first half, when the Sonics shot 49 percent (18-of-37) and built a 48-44 edge.

Malone, who made 9-of-10 free throws, hit a pair to cap an 8-0 spurt and give the Jazz a 57-50 lead with 7:01 left in the third quarter. He had a basket with 5:25 left to push the margin to 63-54.

But Seattle outscored Utah, 13-4, the rest of the period and tied it on a pair of free throws by Lewis with 54 seconds remaining.
