GAME RECAP

Karl Malone had 28 points and 17 rebounds and forgotten Chris Morris added a season-high 20 points as the Utah Jazz remained in front of the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference with a 108-97 victory.

Malone scored 13 points in the first quarter as the Jazz never trailed and won for the eighth time in nine games. They led by as many as 20 points and held off several rallies by the Suns, who fell 1 1/2 games behind second-place Utah in the conference standings.

Morris was unhappy in Utah and was traded to Orlando, only to see the deal voided when Rony Seikaly refused to report to the Jazz. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, including a three-pointer after Phoenix pulled within nine points.

Jason Kidd scored 23 points and recent arrival Dennis Scott added 17 for the Suns, who have lost two in a row following a five-game winning streak and have dropped four of the last five meetings with Utah.

The Jazz led 19-14 midway through the first quarter when Malone and Adam Keefe scored six points each in a 14-5 spurt that ended the period and opened a 33-19 lead. Utah shot 56.5 percent (13-of-23) from the field and limited Phoenix to 35 percent (8-of-23).

A basket by Antoine Carr gave the Jazz a 41-23 lead with 8:24 left in the second quarter but the Suns closed to 57-46 at halftime behind Danny Manning, who scored eight of his 11 points in the period.

A three-pointer by Kidd cut the deficit to 61-54 with 8:45 to go in the third quarter and Phoenix still was within 10 points when Carr and Jeff Hornacek scored four points apiece in a 13-5 run that capped the quarter and extended Utah's lead to 85-67. Morris had a three-pointer to complete the spurt.

Morris, whose previous season high was 11 points, kept the Suns at bay in the final period. A three-pointer by Scott made it 101-92 with 3:17 to play, but John Stockton made two free throws and Morris banked in a three-pointer to seal it with 57 seconds left.

Keefe had 12 points and seven rebounds, Carr added 10 points and Stockton had eight and nine assists for the Jazz, who shot 53 percent (40-of-75) and held a 41-36 rebounding edge. Morris was 7-of-10 from the field, including 4-of-7 three-pointers. Backup point guard Howard Eisley handed out 10 assists.

Rex Chapman scored 16 points for the Suns, who shot 41 percent (35-of-85), including 10-of-20 from behind the arc. Scott made 6-of-10 three-pointers but Kevin Johnson was 0-of-9 overall from the floor.
