Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) Behind Raja Bell and rookie Kris Humphries, Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan moved ahead of a legend. Bell scored 23 points and Humphries added 17 - both season highs - as the Jazz posted a 94-89 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. The win was the 939th of Sloan's 20-year coaching career, one better than Hall of Famer Red Auerbach, the patriarch of the dynastic Boston Celtics. The victory moves Sloan into sixth place on the all-time list. "I haven't really given any thought to it. It's not really important to me. That kind of stuff has never been important to me," Sloan said. "Passing Red Auerbach is kind of silly because I don't feel like I've passed him. He's a great, great coach who had great success with great teams, and we haven't even scratched the surface in those areas." In 20 seasons in the NBA - 17 with the Jazz and three with the Chicago Bulls - Sloan has an overall record of 939-608 and is only five victories away from tying Bill Fitch for fifth all-time. "Jerry is obviously a major focus and part of their franchise; he's been here forever and he's done a lot of great things for this organization," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "He's done a lot of good things for the coaching arena, and as another coach, I admire what he's been able to accomplish." "A lot of my success here is because Jerry believes in me and lets me play," said Bell, who also matched a season high with five assists. "I'm a really big fan of Jerry's, and I'm excited that he got that win and hopefully he'll have many, many more." It looked for some time like Sloan would have to wait another game to reach the milestone. Milwaukee led for most of the game and took a 71-70 lead into the fourth quarter. But the Bucks' offense went dry as they failed to score until Desmond Mason's two free throws with 4:46 left. During that span, Mehmet Okur scored six points as part of a 15-0 run bridging the third and fourth periods. The surge turned Utah's five-point deficit into an 81-71 lead before Mason's free throws. "I think we executed offensively. We were cutting with a purpose, looking for the ball, making that extra pass," Bell said. "Defensively, we were playing as a team. We weren't a step behind. Tonight we seemed to be beating them to the spots sometimes." Overall, Milwaukee went nearly nine minutes without a point and shot just 5-of-21 (24 percent) in the final period. "That really was the dagger for us. We couldn't score," Michael Redd said. "The ability to not make plays really hurt us in the fourth quarter. On their part, they made plays, made free throws, made shots in the fourth quarter and pushed the lead out to nine, 10, 11 points at one point. So it was frustrating." "We had good looks and didn't make them. It just boiled down to that," Porter said. "That hurt us. It wasn't like our offense was bad; we just didn't make some shots. You're not going to win many games going 5-of-21." Milwaukee got within 91-89 on Joe Smith's layup with 11 seconds left before Bell's free throw made it a three-point game with 10 seconds to go. Redd missed a 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds left, and Matt Harpring made two free throws to seal it. Redd, the NBA's 10th-leading scorer with a 23.2 average, struggled to find his game, scoring just three points in the first half and finishing with 14 on 5-of-14 shooting. "Our guys played him as hard as they could," Sloan said. "It was their fourth or fifth game in six or seven days, so I'm sure that had to have had a little effect on him. Our guys tried hard to stay up and down on him, where he didn't get into a good rhythm all night. But players like that, I don't know that you really stop them. They really stop themselves most of the time." Bell scored nine points in the third and Humphries shot 7-of-9 while starting in place of Andrei Kirilenko, who is out for the season with a broken left wrist. Former Jazz guard Maurice Williams scored 19 points for the Bucks, who finished their West Coast road trip 0-5. Overall, Milwaukee went 0-15 on the road against Western Conference opponents this season. "I think it's been typical of our season," Redd said. "The (road) losses we've had have been pretty much all close losses. Losing last night on a buzzer-beater was a sign of our season. Tonight, no different, a close game again that we could have won and that we lost. That's pretty much how our season's been."
