GAME RECAP

Karl Malone scored 16 of his 20 points in the first half and Adam Keefe added seven of his 15 on a key run bridging the first and second quarters, leading the Utah Jazz to a 103-74 romp over the San Antonio Spurs.

Utah led 12-10 midway through the first quarter when Malone's jumper with 4:49 left sparked a 27-2 burst that ended early in the second period. Keefe had a three-point play and two more buckets late in the opening quarter before Greg Foster drained a three-pointer with two seconds left to build a 32-12 lead.

"We have some pretty good shooters on this team and so when they spread out to cover our shooters, it leaves me pretty open," Keefe said. "And I have been able to put a few down from the outside myself this year."

Utah then scored the first seven points of the second period. Howard Eisley hit a three-pointer and sank two free throws to cap the run with 9:14 to go, creating a 39-12 cushion. The Spurs got no closer than 17 points thereafter and lost for the fourth time in the last five games.

Malone argued with the official on a pair of foul calls in the third quarter and was ejected for receiving his second technical with 53 seconds left. He still finished with 11 rebounds and seven steals in 31 minutes.

"It don't matter who the refs are, whether they are veterans or rookies and we had both out there tonight. They are like your dad...they are always right," Malone said.

Jeff Hornacek contributed 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds as Utah snapped a two-game skid and beat the Spurs for the fourth straight time. Hornacek's 22-foot jumper midway through the third quarter gave the Jazz their biggest lead of the game, 73-41.

David Robinson collected 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who were held to a season-low 74 points for the second consecutive game.

"Well, we've had this problem with putting the ball in the hole for a lot of games and we've got to work through it," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "There's not a lot you can do but keep letting the ball fly and keep shooting."

Utah shot 51 percent (33-of-65) from the field, including 6-of-12 from three-point range. Eisley drained three three-pointers and finished with 13 points.

"We got a little bit casual a time or two in the second quarter and I thought we were going to let them back in the ball game because we kind of fell asleep just a little bit," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "But I thought for the most part we stayed fairly intense for the entire game and as everybody knows, we haven't been able to stay intense in the fourth quarter."

Tim Duncan was held to nine points and seven rebounds and made just 4-of-12 shots as the Spurs connected on 37 percent (27-of-73) from the floor. San Antonio has shot just 35 percent (55-for-155) over the last two games.

"We just couldn't get anything going," Duncan said. "It's the second night in a row that we start off slow and they really jumped on us and when we're down that much, it's hard for us to get back into it."

Cory Alexander scored 13 points off the bench for San Antonio, which was outrebounded, 41-32, and committed 21 turnovers.
