GAME RECAP

Chris Webber collected 26 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards to their first win in Salt Lake City in 10 years, a 90-86 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Juwan Howard added 19 points and 10 rebounds and Rod Strickland chipped in with 17 points for the Wizards (1-2), who had lost 10 straight games in Utah since a victory on February 20th, 1987. The victory was just the third for Washington in the last 21 meetings with Utah.

"A lot of teams with the type of crowd they have here and with their team could easily let a team come back," Webber said. "But the true test of time is when they tie it up and you can still maintain that lead and win, so I think we did a great job of holding our composure when they tied the game up."

Karl Malone registered 21 points and 16 rebounds for the Jazz (1-2), who lost only four home games all last season, including the playoffs.

Washington trailed by 10 points early in the second quarter before Webber and Howard fueled a 19-6 burst. Webber had all nine of his second-quarter points in the run and Howard added six as the Wizards claimed a 44-41 lead with 1:03 left in the half.

"It really took a lot of toughness to come back from the loss to Miami (Saturday)," Howard said. "Letting the game slip away, it was a heartbreaker, but tonight we maintained our composure and came out and rebounded well and from that frustrating evening we came and got the job done here."

The Wizards built their biggest lead at 67-58 on two free throws by Chris Whitney with 10:24 left in the fourth quarter. But Utah fought back behind six points from Shandon Anderson, and tied the game, 78-78, on a pair of free throws by Malone with 3:22 to go.

Calbert Cheaney answered with a jumper 17 seconds later to give the Wizards the lead for good. The Jazz were still within three points with less than 10 seconds left, but Terry Davis made one free throw and, after Utah's Jeff Hornacek missed a three-pointer, Cheaney made two more free throws with 4.3 seconds left for an 89-83 advantage.

"We were able to come back and tie it up and then they hit some shots and we didn't," Hornacek said. "At the end they had Rod Strickland penetrating and we had to come over and help out and made him pass it off and Calbert Cheaney hit a couple of big baskets. But they just executed better than we did at the end."

Cheaney finished with 14 points and Whitney contributed 10 for the Wizards, who shot 40 percent (35-for-87) from the field.

Hornacek had 16 points and Greg Ostertag had 12 and nine rebounds for the Jazz, who shot 43 percent (30-for-70).
