Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Greg Ostertag fell two blocks shy of a triple-double and Karl Malone scored 29 points as the Utah Jazz rebounded from their worst loss of the young season with a 105-98 victory over the Orlando Magic.

The 7-2 Ostertag collected 14 points, 12 rebounds and eight blocks for the Jazz, who suffered a 117-96 loss to Toronto on Friday but were able to get by the Magic for the ninth time in 10 meetings.

"We've just been struggling and I tried to come out with a lot of energy," Ostertag said. "Everybody was active tonight. It was fun to watch."

Utah, which had lost three of its first four games at the Delta Center, took control by scoring eight straight points in the fourth quarter after Orlando had fought within 78-73 on a pair of free throws by Grant Hill with 8:43 remaining.

Malone capped the run by making the first of two free throws with 6:17 left to give the Jazz an 86-73 advantage.

"I think our bench did a great job tonight, but I think the thing that sticks out the most for us was Greg Ostertag," Malone said. "I think if we get an effort like that from him every night, we'll be competitive in every ballgame."

The Magic responded with a 13-3 burst, cutting the deficit to four points in the final minute, but John Stockton hit a pair of free throws with 32 seconds left to finally put the game out of reach.

"I thought that was probably the hardest we've played for 48 minutes," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think we'll be a pretty good team if we can realize that we've got to defend first. We've tried to outscore everybody here in the beginning instead of going out and trying to stop people."

Orlando, which has lost its last six trips to Utah, shot just 37 percent (23-of-93) despite going 10-of-20 from 3-point range. Darrell Armstrong led the way with 18 points before fouling out in the final seconds.

Tracy McGrady contributed 17 points and reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Mike Miller, still recovering from a foot injury suffered during the exhibition season, had 16 in 26 minutes off the bench for the Magic.

"It was a tough one for us tonight," said Orlando coach Doc Rivers. "We didn't shoot the ball well."

Hill grabbed seven rebounds to go along with his 15 points, including the two foul shots that made it a five-point contest. Following a miss by Bryon Russell, the Magic had a chance to get even closer but Pat Garrity could not hit a long jumper.

Russell did not miss on the next trip up court, connecting from 19 feet on the right sideline to push Utah's advantage to seven. Ostertag then went 1-of-2 from the line, Andrei Kirilenko made two free throws and the Jazz regained control.

Stockton dished out eight assists and Kirilenko contributed 13 points and eight rebounds for Utah, which connected on 48 percent (37-of-77) of its shots and held a 56-44 advantage on the boards.

"We played a lot better tonight," Russell said. "We covered for each other and we were all over the place. We let them back into the game, but we also buried them, too, with the defense at the end."

The Magic lost for the fourth time in five games despite committing only 12 turnovers.

"When you get behind on the road, you fight so hard to get back in the game," Armstrong said. "It just seems like you lose a lot of energy trying to come from behind and then they start making plays, especially at the end. It just wore us down."
