Game Recap

Karl Malone capped an NBA season-high 56-point effort with a driving layup with 2.2 seconds left as the red-hot Utah Jazz swept their second straight season series from the Golden State Warriors with a 101-99 victory.

Malone, who scored 25 of Utah's 29 points in the third quarter, was 18-of-29 from the field and 19-of-23 from the free throw line. He fell five shy of his career high of 61 points, set against Milwaukee on June 27th, 1990.

"Those were the shots they were giving me, they felt good when they were leaving my hand," Malone said. "I just wasn't hitting them in the beginning. I settled down and they started to go down.

"It was a big game. Every game we play is big. ... It wasn't about taking the game over, it was about staying in the offense of what we were trying to do. It was a good win for us."

The 56 points by Malone were the fourth-highest total in franchise history and the fourth time in his career he has scored at least 50.

"We tried to double a lot on Karl and there were a lot of fouls called," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo. "We spent a lot of time trying to double him and before we could even get there, there was a foul called. ... Obviously we didn't get any semblance of control on him the whole game."

Shaquille O'Neal of the Los Angeles Lakers and Tracy Murray of the Washington Wizards each have scored 50 points in a game this season for the previous league high. Murray accomplished the feat on February 10th against the Warriors while O'Neal matched it on Thursday at New Jersey.

The Jazz, who improved to 57-18, are 26-3 since the All-Star break and have won four straight and nine of their last 10 games. They won their 12th straight contest against a team with a losing record and took over the top spot in the Western Conference.

Utah leads Seattle by one-half game and is two games ahead of the third-place Lakers. The Jazz also have won eight straight and 13 of the last 14 meetings with the Warriors, who secured their fourth 60-loss season.

Jim Jackson scored 28 points and Erick Dampier added 20 and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which has lost 13 of its last 15 games.

Things got even worse for the Warriors, who already have endured a year of controversy and misfortune. Donyell Marshall, who was finally coming into his own after he was the fourth overall pick in the 1994 draft, fractured his 10th rib with 53 seconds left in the third quarter and will miss the rest of the season.

The Warriors led 58-48 with just under 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter but Malone's dominance, capped by a 26-foot three-pointer at the buzzer, tied it, 73-73, heading into the final period.

"I said, `If this goes, I am in one of those zones.' When that shot went, I thought maybe I don't want a breather in the fourth quarter. In the second half, there was no doubt in my mind I wasn't coming out of the game."

Malone was 8-of-11 from the field and 8-of-10 from the free throw line in the third period. The 25 third-quarter points were good enough to make Malone Utah's high scorer in 31 games this season.

The Jazz led 92-85 with 4:42 left in the fourth quarter but Jackson converted a three-point play and Clarence Weatherspoon dunked to pull Golden State within 92-90. An illegal defense call resulted in a free throw by Jeff Hornacek but Weatherspoon answered with a free throw of his own.

Jackson sank two foul shots with 2:47 left to knot the contest, 93-93. But Hornacek countered with a jumper with 2:01 to go to put Utah back on top. Hornacek was whistled for a technical foul with 98 seconds remaining and Muggsy Bogues sank the free throw. Golden State's Jason Caffey followed with two foul shots for a 96-95 advantage.

Bryon Russell's driving layup put the Jazz ahead, 97-96, with 79 seconds to go and John Stockton added two more from the line before Jackson sank a tying three-pointer with 11.4 seconds left.

After Malone hit his go-ahead layup, the Warriors called a 20-second timeout but Gerald Madkins made a bad pass and Golden State never got off a shot.

Former Jazz center Felton Spencer had six of his season-high 10 points in the first quarter as Golden State made 11-of-20 shots and led after one period, 25-24.

The Jazz went ahead, 28-27, following a 13-footer by Malone 42 seconds into the second quarter. But the Warriors reeled off an 8-0 burst to open a 35-28 lead with eight minutes to go. They took a 50-44 edge at halftime on the strength of 13 points by Marshall and nine by Dampier.

Malone had 19 at the half.
