GAME RECAP

Glen Rice scored 26 points on 11-of-15 shooting and Vernon Maxwell added nine of his 14 in a pivotal second-quarter run as the red-hot Charoltte Hornets snapped the Utah Jazz's 11-game winning streak, 111-85.

David Wesley added 13 points and tied a season high with 13 assists as the Hornets, who have won 12 of 13, shot 60 percent (45-of-75) from the floor. Vlade Divac also tied a season high with seven assists.

Charlotte led 24-23 just under a minute into the second quarter when Maxwell sparked a 26-8 burst that broke open the game. Anthony Mason capped the spurt with a dunk with 1:45 to go in the half.

"Obviously this was one of our best games of the year," Cowens said. "We executed our offense very well; we had excellent movement and that resulted in a lot of layups. We seemed to take a page out of the Jazz's playbook by playing close to a perfect game."

"Tonight the execution on offense and defense was great," said Rice. "This was one of my best games all season. It was the type of game we've been working for all season. We're playing with a lot of confidence."

Karl Malone, who shot 6-of-15 from the field, led Utah with 17 points. Chris Morris added 12 and Bryon Russell 10 for the Jazz, who suffered their worst setback of the season but lost for just the second time in 20 games.

"They beat us every way we could be beaten," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, who was ejected in the second quarter. "We had no answer for them. They took us out of everything we wanted to do. If we don't execute, we won't beat any team in this league. This is not an athletic team. I don't have a 1-on-1 player who can break down a defense."

"The Hornets came out and beat us at every aspect of the ballgame," Malone said. "To put it simply, they kicked our butts."

After opening up a six-point lead late in the first quarter, the Hornets had to settle for a 22-21 edge. Rice opened the second period with a layup but Morris answered 33 seconds later to cut the deficit to 24-23.

Maxwell then began the key burst with a seven-foot runner and Bobby Phills followed with a jumper. Morris hit another layup to draw Charlotte within 28-25, but J.R. Reid buried a 16-footer and added a fast-break layup off a feed from Wesley for a 32-25 advantage.

Wesley hit a technical free throw with 7:31 left as Sloan was ejected for arguing and Reid added two more from the line to push the lead to 35-25. Shandon Anderson made a layup to temporary halt the burst, but Maxwell sank a three-pointer.

Anderson hit a five-footer and Malone sank a free throw around a 19-footer by Wesley before the Hornets scored eight straight points. Divac had two free throws, Maxwell made back-to-back baskets and Rice drained a five-footer with 3:53. After a free throw by Malone, Mason capped the burst at 50-31 with 1:45 to go with a dunk off a feed from Rice.

"This was close to a total game for us on offense and defense," said Mason. "We finally put a team away by pulling ahead early. We're more confident and we're playing that way. We're the hungriest team in the league."

Charlotte made 12-of-17 shots in the second quarter.

The Jazz never got within single digits thereafter and trailed by 29 late in the contest. Malone had 13 points in the third quarter.
