Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Latrell Sprewell may not have been feeling well, but he and the New York Knicks had the Utah Jazz feeling blue.

Sprewell, who was fighting a cold, scored 19 points, including eight down the stretch, as the Knicks snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Jazz, 85-79.

After John Stockton hit 1-of-2 free throws to give the Jazz a 72-71 lead with just over five minutes remaining, Sprewell gave the Knicks the lead for good with a pair at the line with 4:11 to play.

Sprewell made a layup to give New York a 79-73 edge with 2:31 to go, and after Karl Malone got Utah within 81-79 on a scoop shot, Sprewell hit a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left.

He then stole a pass -- his fourth steal of the contest -- and iced the game with another pair from the line with six seconds remaining.

Sprewell was 10-of-10 from the line for New York, which made 35-of-40 free throws en route to just its third win in 11 games. Utah made just 13-of-19 free throws.

Allan Houston scored 20 points and Kurt Thomas 18 and 10 rebounds for New York, which had not beaten Utah since December 1996 and had been winless at the Delta Center since January 1992.

Malone paced Utah with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Bryon Russell added 21 and nine for the Jazz, who had won nine of their last 11 contests.
