Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers took their level of futility in the state of Utah to a new low. The Clippers set a franchise record for their worst shooting performance in an 88-73 loss to the Jazz, who got 17 points and six blocks from Andrei Kirilenko. After stopping a 26-game losing streak in Utah on January 22, the Clippers offered one of their worst efforts of the season as an encore. Los Angeles shot a franchise-low 26 percent (21-of-80) from the field. Its previous low was 29 percent (22-of-77) against Chicago on February 19, 2000. "We played ugly. In the beginning, they (Utah) didn't play any better," Clippers coach Dennis Johnson said. "The first quarter and a half, they played just as ugly as we did. That was just a bad game. I would have been really (upset) if the game would have been closer as we played like that." For a time, it looked like the Clippers would threaten the NBA record for futility from the field. They were at just 18 percent (11-of-59) through three quarters before they improved their percentage over the final 12 minutes, which was entirely garbage time. "Once you start shooting bad, it's one of those snowball kind of effects," Jazz forward Scott Padgett said. "They got a lot of easy layups to make it look better, but we played pretty good defensively." The Milwaukee Hawks shot an NBA-low 23 percent (22-of-96) vs. Minneapolis on November 6, 1954, the first season of the shot clock. Matt Harpring added 14 rebounds and 10 rebounds for Jazz, who held a 66-39 lead through three quarters as they cruised to their third straight win. It was a struggle from the start for the Clippers, who missed their first six shots and didn't register their first basket until Eric Piatkowski's layup with 7:04 left in the first quarter. The Clippers went 5-of-18 in the period, but that was only the beginning of their troubles. An alley-oop dunk by Kirilenko off a pass from Mark Jackson, gave the Jazz a 24-13 lead early in the second quarter. With the Clippers continuing to misfire, the Jazz slowly began to pull away. They opened a 33-16 lead with 6:03 left in the half on Calbert Cheaney's jumper and were in front, 45-26, at the break. The Clippers were even worse from the field in the second quarter as they made just 3-of-18 shots. John Stockton handed out 12 assists for the Jazz - two more than the Clippers had. Karl Malone added 13 points and Cheaney 11 for the Jazz, who shot 50 percent (32-of-64) and overcame 24 turnovers. "All we can say about the game is that we won," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "It is nice to, win but it is amazing how we started the ballgame off with the number of turnovers we had. Too many times it looked like there was no concentration at all. The way were playing, it wasn't very exciting to watch." The intermission did not do anything to help Los Angeles, which still looked lost after the break. The Jazz opened the second half with a 13-2 run that featured five points from Harpring to open their biggest lead at 58-28. Corey Maggette netted 13 points and Wang ZhiZhi added 11 for the Clippers, who fell to 9-26 on the road.
