GAME RECAP

Karl Malone scored 33 points to move into a tie for fourth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list as the Utah Jazz held off the Dallas Mavericks, 99-90, in a game that featured nine technical fouls.

Karl Malone tied Moses Malone for the fourth spot with 27,409 points. Jeff Hornacek added 18 points for the Jazz, who have won four straight games and are 21-2 since the All-Star break. Utah is once again one-half game ahead of Seattle for the best record in the Western Conference and has one game in hand.

Michael Finley and Hubert Davis scored 24 points apiece for the Mavericks, who were hit with five technicals and saw coach Don Nelson ejected in the fourth quarter. Dallas fell to 7-7 in March and will need to win its remaining two games at the Los Angeles Clippers and Vancouver to finish its first winning full month since going 10-6 in March, 1995.

Malone keyed a pair of runs in the first quarter. Dallas scored the first six points of the game before Malone knocked down a 17-foot jumper to ignite a 12-0 burst. He also closed it with a 17-footer to give Utah a 12-6 lead midway through the period.

Eric Riley ended that run with a 13-footer, but Malone answered with a 19-footer with five minutes remaining in the quarter to spark a 10-0 surge. He had six points in that spurt, including a layup to cap it and give the Jazz a 22-8 bulge with 1:54 left in the period. Utah led, 25-11, after one.

Malone had just two points in the second quarter, but the Jazz kept pouring it on, opening a 52-34 halftime lead. He came back with 12 points in the third when Utah threatened to make it a blowout, opening a 77-56 cushion entering the fourth.

But Dallas scored the first 12 points of the fourth to close within 77-68 on a layup by Shawn Respert with 8:19 remaining. The Mavericks had the lead down to seven points before Malone made a layup and Nelson was hit with a double-technical and ejected with 5:47 to go. Hornacek hit both free throws to re-open a double-digit lead at 84-73.

The Mavericks kept closing and got as close as 94-89 after Finley buried a three-pointer with 61 seconds to play. But eight seconds later, Donn Nelson was hit with a technical for arguing and Hornacek sank the free throw. Bryon Russell followed with a dunk to push the lead to 97-89 with 25 seconds to go.

John Stockton scored 12 points for the Jazz, who shot 58 percent (36-of-62) from the field. Malone grabbed 14 rebounds and Adam Keefe had eight points and 12 boards, helping Utah to a 46-25 edge on the boards.

Erick Strickland had nine points and eight assists for the Mavericks, who shot just 40 percent (32-of-80).
