GAME RECAP

Karl Malone and Jeff Hornacek scored 21 points apiece and Greg Ostertag blocked a career-high 11 shots to lead the Utah Jazz to their fourth consecutive win, a 98-95 overtime defeat of the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers staged a furious rally in the fourth quarter, coming from 16 points down with 9:35 remaining. A three-pointer by Allen Iverson with 2.8 seconds left capped a 21-5 run and forced overtime, where the Jazz got four points each from Malone and Hornacek.

John Stockton added 16 points and 14 assists and Ostertag nine rebounds for the Jazz, who defeated Philadelphia at home for the 10th straight time.

"I think we had to have a little bit of luck to win a game like this. We only scored 12 points in the fourth quarter. When you quit executing and quit defending, that's what happens," said Utah coach Jerry Sloan. "Instead of going ahead and playing the game like I thought we had been, we just got in too big a hurry.

"Larry's (Brown) got that team playing together and passing the ball, doing things to give them a chance to win. They're alive on the boards, they hustle and play hard, and it's fun to watch them."

Iverson led all scorers with 27 points, Derrick Coleman had 16 and Clarence Weatherspoon added 13 boards for Philadelphia, which concluded its seven-game West Coast trip with a 3-4 record.

"We gave the effort and played as hard as we can, we just couldn't come out with the win," said Iverson. "We couldn't catch a break at the end. I guess we're not supposed to be in a game with teams like that."

Utah was seemingly in control in the fourth quarter after Shandon Anderson scored off a layup to give the Jazz an 83-67 lead with 9:35 remaining. The Jazz then went into a scoring drought, going 5:16 without a point, before Malone hit a layup to make it 85-79.

Consecutive jumpers by Weatherspoon were sandwiched around a free throw by Hornacek, making it 86-83 Utah with 2:42 left.

Neither team scored until 31.6 seconds were left, when Iverson stole the ball from Stockton and hit a layup at the other end to bring the Sixers to within one, 86-85.

Stockton was fouled on an inbounds play and converted two free throws with six seconds left, moving the Jazz ahead 88-85.

Iverson capped Philadelphia's 21-5 run by banking in a three-pointer with 2.8 seconds left. The three-pointer was just his third from behind the arc in his 17 previous attempts. Iverson accounted for nine points and Coleman six points during the spurt. Utah's Howard Eisley had his three-point attempt at the buzzer rim out, mandating overtime.

Another three-pointer by Iverson gave Philadelphia a 91-90 edge with 4:23 left in OT. After Hornacek hit a jumper at the 3:13 mark to make it 92-91 Utah, the Sixers took their last lead with 2:35 to go following two Weatherspoon free throws.

Malone put the Jazz on top for good, 94-93 with 1:59 left, after being fouled by Coleman on a drive and converting two free throws. Malone added two more free throws before Iverson went to the line and hit a pair, making it 96-95 with 13.8 seconds remaining.

Hornacek was fouled on an inbounds play and made two free throws to make it 98-95, and the Sixers missed their final chance to tie when Coleman misfired on a three-pointer with four seconds left and Hornacek gained control of the rebound.

"I hope these guys feel good about themselves. I think we've improved as a team this whole trip," said Philadelphia coach Larry Brown. "I don't think we get respect and that's tough. I don't think officials think we're capable of winning games right now. That's the way it's always been in this league. You've got to earn that respect and fight through it."
