GAME RECAP

Greg Ostertag scored 21 points to lead seven players in double figures and the Utah Jazz cruised to a 132-99 victory over the Denver Nuggets, who have lost 11 straight games.

Antoine Carr scored a season-high 19 points and Karl Malone added 18 for the Jazz, who took control in the first quarter before exploding for 76 points in the second half. Utah has won its last seven meetings with Denver.

"We seemed to shoot the ball very well," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, whose team was a blistering 61.5 percent (48-of-78) from the field. "We had 35 assists because we had guys pass the ball. It isn't very often that (John) Stockton and Malone don't play in the fourth quarter."

Johnny Newman scored 21 points and rookie Bobby Jackson added 18 and seven assists for the Nuggets, who have not won since December 7th against the Los Angeles Clippers. Denver (2-26), which is 0-3 against Utah this season, also lost its first 12 games.

"You saw the best and worst of it tonight," Nuggets coach Bill Hanzlik said. "They're one of the best teams in the league. They totally executed us to death tonight. I hope we learned a lot from this game."

The Nuggets have surrendered the two highest point totals in a regulation game this season, allowing 133 to the New Jersey Nets on December 13th.

The Jazz trailed just once, at 6-5 just over two minutes into the contest. Malone and Howard Eisley scored four points each in a 10-0 spurt that closed the first quarter and gave Utah a 31-16 lead.

Ostertag came on in the second quarter and scored the first seven points in a 9-0 burst that was capped by Greg Foster's 16-footer, extending the lead to 40-16 with 10:32 remaining. Ostertag scored 17 points in the period, which ended with Utah holding a 56-41 lead.

"When Ostertag went into the game we finally had somebody go to the rim and we got some easy baskets because of it," Sloan said.

A 19-footer by LaPhonso Ellis cut the deficit to 62-50 with 9:22 left in the third quarter, but the Jazz scored 43 points in the period -- including 10 apiece by Carr and Adam Keefe -- to open a 99-68 lead entering the final period.

After the opening basket of the fourth quarter, Utah did not need to score again. Its largest lead came at 104-70 on a basket by Ostertag with 10:13 remaining.

Keefe and Jeff Hornacek scored 12 points, Chris Morris added a season-high 11 and Foster 10 for the Jazz, who held a 45-28 edge on the glass and made 34-of-42 free throws.

"I had my shot going a little bit," said Carr, who was 6-of-8 from the field. "We were clicking today, that's all it was. Our big guys had it going."

Rookie Danny Fortson scored 15 points and Ellis added 14 for the Nuggets, who shot under 34 percent (26-of-77) and were 42-of-52 from the line. A total of 66 fouls were called.

"We just didn't play very well," Jackson said. "In the second half we tried to come out with more excitement and play harder. We just have to keep working hard and not get down."

"Denver has good, young players," Sloan said. "I thought they kept trying hard. Their day will come if they stay with it."
