Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Even with Orlando Magic veteran Grant Hill sidelined for most of the fourth quarter, the slumping Utah Jazz couldn't end their losing streak. Cuttino Mobley scored 19 of his 26 points in the second half and hit seven 3-pointers to lead the Magic to a 106-100 victory over the Jazz, who have lost six straight games. Rookie Dwight Howard's layup with 6:01 remaining snapped an 89-89 tie and gave Orlando the lead for good. Hedo Turkoglu added a running jumper just over a minute later and the teams exchanged baskets over the next four minutes. "Both teams played extremely hard and I thought for the most part it was a hard-fought game," Magic coach Johnny Davis said. "We made the plays down the stretch when we had to have them." "This team will make you confused because they do a terrific job getting you in an open court game," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "And we did a terrible job trying to guard them after they made baskets, and that put us back on our heels." Mehmet Okur's clutch 3-pointer with 1:19 remaining cut Utah's deficit to 99-98, and his rebound on the other end gave the Jazz a chance to take their first lead since the third quarter. But Carlos Arroyo committed a turnover on Utah's ensuing possession. Mobley hit his final 3-pointer of the game with 21 seconds left, giving the Magic a 102-98 lead to all but seal things. "I was definitely calling for the ball in the second half, and the guys found me, and I kind of forced it on myself sometimes," Mobley said. "I felt it in the first half, but I just didn't take that many shots. In the second half, I figured we've gotta go out with a bang. Thankfully the shots started falling in the second half." With the Jazz holding a 67-60 lead with 7:29 remaining in the third quarter, Mobley rallied the Magic. He knocked down three of his 3-pointers in a 15-4 surge that Grant Hill, who scored 18 points before leaving with sore shins, capped with a reverse dunk for a 75-71 lead. "When we're down, I think it's the responsibility of myself and Steve (Francis), and whoever is on the court to be leaders," Mobley said. "You take it upon yourself. You don't wait for anybody else to do it. I just took it upon myself to go out there and shoot the ball and see what I could do." With Hill on the sidelines and Kelvin Cato on the injured list, the Magic relied on a handful of reserves. Turkoglu scored 17 points off the bench and backup center Mario Kasun added five and nine rebounds. "It wasn't just me and Cuttino. I thought Mario Kasun and Hedo (Turkoglu) did a wonderful job off the bench," said Magic guard Steve Francis, who collected 20 points and five assists. "This whole season, we've been talking about playing together as a team, and I think tonight we won together as a team." Howard, who celebrated his 19th birthday Wednesday, had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic, who shot 62 percent (8-of-13) from the arc. "We came out tonight and got a good win," Howard said. "We started off a little slow but we picked it up at the end, so that's a great birthday present for me." The Jazz are winless since All-Star forward Andrei Kirilenko went on the injured list November 30, and have allowed over 100 points in all five of those losses. "I thought tonight we probably played harder than we've played in five or six games," Sloan said. "To me, that's the most important thing that we've got to try and overcome. We really have a difficult time when things get tough for us. When we make a mistake, we really have almost a defeatist attitude right away." Carlos Boozer scored 19 points and Okur and Arroyo each added 10 in the first half to help Utah to a 57-55 lead. Boozer finished with 29 points and 12 rebounds.
