GAME RECAP

Rony Seikaly did not show up and neither did the New York Knicks, who suffered a 94-78 beating at the hands of the suddenly center-less Utah Jazz, who won their sixth straight game.

The Jazz acquired Seikaly on Monday from the Orlando Magic, but the 6-11 center refused to report to his new team, apparently citing contract assurances. The Jazz had set a deadline of 10 p.m. EST and had several conversations with Steve Kauffman, the agent for Seikaly. But an agreement could not be reached and the Jazz have voided the deal, with the trade deadline looming Thursday at 6 p.m. EST.

"Rony Seikaly did not report today at the time that he was told and was part of the trade agreement and so the Jazz has voided the trade," Jazz vice president of basketball operations Scott Layden said.

The Knicks were competitive for one quarter, trailing 21-19 after 12 minutes. But they were outscored 35-11 in the second period and trailed by as many as 34 points.

Karl Malone scored 10 of his 25 points in the final 3:09 of the second quarter and sat out the fourth quarter for the Jazz, who stopped New York's winning streak at four games. Adam Keefe added 13 points and 12 rebounds for Utah.

"Adam is doing a great job for us," Malone said. "He has a knack of knowing where the basketball is at and he gives us that hustle-spark that we need all the time."

The Jazz sent center Greg Foster and forward Chris Morris to the Magic for Seikaly. Center Greg Ostertag is out with a stress fracture, forcing Utah to start unknown William Cunningham for the second straight game. Cunningham scored two points in 14 minutes.

"The trade is undone and we'll receive the two players back, Greg Foster and Chris Morris," Layden said. "This is probably the toughest thing in the whole trade."

"I don't think it really affected us that much in the locker room," Malone said. "Those were things you don't have any control over. Now you go from having one center to explaining to the two guys who are coming back here what happened. It's a tough spot to be in."

A basket by Chris Childs had the Knicks within 24-21 with 10:23 left in the second quarter but New York scored just four points in the next eight minutes. The Knicks went scoreless for 4:16 between layups by Charles Oakley and Larry Johnson.

Meanwhile, Shandon Anderson scored six points and Bryon Russell added five in a 25-4 burst, and Utah opened a 49-25 lead on a jumper by Malone with 2:22 left in the first half. Malone, who sank a free throw before the jumper, added seven more points as the Jazz opened a 56-30 halftime lead.

In the opening 24 minutes, Utah shot 51 percent (19-of-37) from the field while holding New York to 30 percent (13-of-43).

"When we started helping each other and got a couple of steals we got in the open court and got some easy baskets," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think for the most part we played hard and played with a great deal of concentration."

"The first quarter was pretty close but the second quarter we started settling for a lot of long jump shots," Knicks guard John Starks said. "We weren't being aggressive on the court taking the ball to the basket."

The Knicks were unable to get untracked in the third quarter, managing just 14 points. Malone added six more points in the period and the Jazz opened their largest lead at 72-38 on a layup by Jeff Hornacek with 1:36 to play. New York scored 25 points in the middle 24 minutes.

Malone, Hornacek and John Stockton all sat out the final period. Malone grabbed 10 rebounds, Hornacek had 11 points and six assists and Stockton added eight and five. Anderson scored 13 points and Russell added 12 for the Jazz, who shot 46 percent (32-of-70) and made 28-of-40 free throws.

The Knicks, who never led, cut the deficit to 14 points in the fourth quarter. They were led by Allan Houston, who scored 13 points but shot just 5-of-18 from the field.

Chris Mills and Anthony Bowie added 11 apiece for New York, which shot 42 percent (32-of-77) and missed 12-of-23 foul shots. Starks added 10 points for New York, which has not won at Utah since January 27th, 1992.

"You have to drive the ball to get open shots; we didn't do that," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We mishandled the ball, so there was high turnovers (17). We know our formula for success right now and we didn;t play the way we need to play to be competitive."
