Game Recap

Karl Malone scored 11 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter as the Utah Jazz remained in the chase for the NBA's best record and perfect against the Vancouver Grizzlies with a 99-93 victory.

Jeff Hornacek added 17 points for the Jazz, who never trailed and fought off a fourth-quarter rally by the Grizzlies. Utah (56-18) is one-half game behind Seattle for first place in the Western Conference.

The Jazz also remained 1 1/2 games behind the Chicago Bulls, who have the league's best mark. Utah swept the season series from Chicago and owns the tiebreaker edge should the teams finish with identical records.

"I think we just kind of coasted in, scoring just enough to get by," Hornacek said. "That happened the last time we played them. They scored a bunch in the fourth. We were a little tentative but nothing to worry about. In the end it was just a win."

Bryant Reeves scored 30 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 26 for the Grizzlies, who fell to 0-12 all-time against the Jazz and have lost six straight games overall. Vancouver (16-58) already is assured of its best record since entering the NBA three years ago.

Hornacek scored eight points and Greg Foster added seven of his nine in the first quarter as Utah grabbed a 25-23 lead. The Jazz began the second period with a 17-4 burst featuring seven points from Chris Morris, whose layup opened a 42-27 advantage with 6:37 left in the first half.

Utah shot 50 percent (10-of-20) from the field in the second quarter and held Vancouver to 35 percent (6-of-17) in building a 54-40 lead.

The teams played even through the third quarter and a 20-footer by Malone gave the Jazz an 80-64 lead with 10:56 to play. But Reeves scored seven straight points, cutting the deficit to nine points with 9:09 to go.

"We dug ourselves a big hole early," Reeves said. "If we came out in the third like we did in the first we would have been all right. It's tough to crawl out and get over that hump."

Utah responded with layups from Shandon Anderson and Bryon Russell to rebuild the lead to 13 points before Vancouver put together a 13-6 run, closing to 90-84 on an inside hoop from Abdur-Rahim with 3:31 remaining.

Malone scored five points down the stretch to seal the win. The Grizzlies closed to 95-91 on a dunk by Antonio Daniels with 25 seconds left, but John Stockton answered with two free throws to seal it.

"We had kind of a letdown in the fourth quarter and didn't play great defense," Malone said. "But I don't need to talk about that. We have kind of a tough time beating these guys but the most important thing is we did."

Stockton had 11 points and eight assists and Morris scored nine points for the Jazz, who shot 51 percent (38-of-75) and made 21-of-33 free throws.

Lee Mayberry scored nine points and Abdur-Rahim pulled down nine rebounds for the Grizzlies, who shot 45 percent (33-of-73) and made 26-of-31 foul shots. Vancouver held a 41-39 rebounding edge.
