Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- For one night, John Stockton was not the Utah Jazz point guard reaching a career milestone. Mark Jackson became the third player in NBA history to reach 10,000 career assists as the Jazz rallied for a 99-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns. In his 16th season, Jackson reached his milestone when he fed Matt Harpring for a basket with 57 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Jackson (10,002) joined Stockton (15,434) and Magic Johnson (10,141) as the only players in league history with 10,000 assists. Barring injury, he should pass Johnson later this season. "It's only happened to two other guys in the history of the game. It's just an incredible feeling," Jackson said. "It made me feel really good to do it here because of the way they (crowd) showed they appreciated it." "This is a tremendous honor for Mark," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "He has done a great job for us in the time he has been here. He would like to play more, I'm sure, but I think he has handled his role very well with our team." Karl Malone, the other half of Utah's veteran superstar tandem, scored 24 points to lead the Jazz, who used an 18-7 run to start the fourth quarter to take a 93-85 lead. Stephon Marbury had 29 points and 10 assists for Phoenix, which was coming off Tuesday's victory at Portland. The Suns fell to 2-7 in the finale of back-to-back games. Suns coach Frank Johnson did not want to use the back-to-back games as an excuse. "They're too young to be tired," Johnson said. "Even the older guys - they're too young, too." Marbury carried the Suns for the first three quarters, scoring 23 points as Phoenix held a 78-75 lead. But the rested Jazz took over in the final 12 minutes. Scott Padgett started the fourth quarter by scoring the first six points to give the Jazz the lead for good. Perhaps weary from Tuesday's game, the Suns went scoreless to start the final quarter until Marion's jumper with 8:27 remaining. "I don't think we were tired, we just didn't execute when we needed to," Marbury said. Marion finished with 25 points, making 10-of-15 shots. Rookie Amare Stoudemire chipped in 13 points. Matt Harpring, who had 22 points and 11 rebounds, converted a layup off a feed from Stockton to give the Jazz their biggest lead at 93-85 with 4:11 remaining. Led by Harpring, the Jazz held a commanding 47-26 rebounding advantage against the more athletic Suns. "Bottom line, they just kicked out butts on the board," Johnson said. "(Heck), we shot 49 percent. We shot 49 percent, only 12 turnovers. They got 17 points off turnovers. The biggest discrepancy is they just kicked our butts on the boards." But the Suns fought back as Marbury, Scott Williams and Marion had baskets, helping Phoenix close to 93-91 with 74 seconds remaining. After Malone and Marbury traded baskets, Padgett sank two foul shots with nine seconds remaining, giving the Jazz a four-point lead. Marion missed badly on a 3-pointer and Malone made two foul shots to seal it. Andrei Kirilenko added 14 points for the Jazz, who shot 49 percent (36-of-74) and committed 16 turnovers. Kirilenko led a strong effort by the Jazz reserves, who outscored the Suns' bench, 32-10. "Last night we went all the way into our bench and our bench pulled through," Johnson said. "Tonight just wasn't our night. We got 10 points out of our bench tonight, not that I really gave them a chance, but I'd like, at least, maybe a little more from the bench." For a time, it looked like the Suns would pick up their second straight impressive victory. Penny Hardaway's 3-pointer gave the Suns their biggest lead at 70-59 with 4:58 left in the third quarter. Kirilenko sparked a 12-1 run with six points, capped by his two foul shots that tied it at 71-71. The Suns closed the quarter strong and held a three-point lead entering the final period. Williams finished with 10 points for Phoenix, which shot 49 percent (34-of-69).
