Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz tied a franchise record for fewest points allowed at the expense of the Dallas Mavericks once again.

The Mavericks shot a pathetic 29 percent from the field (20-of-68) and suffered their eighth straight loss to the Jazz, 80-65.

Utah set a club record for fewest points allowed in a 96-65 rout of the Mavericks on March 5, 1997. At the time, it was a franchise record-low for the Mavericks, who broke the mark with an 83-62 loss to Milwaukee on November 22, 1997.

The Jazz shot just 37 percent (26-of-70), but led by as many as 22 points in the first half and cruised to an easy win. Bryon Russell led the Jazz with 17 points. Karl Malone played just 29 minutes and had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

"Dallas didn't come to play tonight, but we did our job," Russell said. "They didn't present a challenge, but a `W' is a `W'."

Utah improved to an NBA-best 10-2, but coach Jerry Sloan was not happy after the game.

"I'm offended sometimes when we play like the game is a joke," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "Some people may say that's old fashioned and demanding and all those things, but we have to play like we are interested and want to be here."

Utah has won 31 of the last 35 meetings with Dallas.

Robert Pack led the Mavericks with 18 points off the bench. Samaki Walker was the only other Dallas player in double figures with 11.

"We couldn't get it going," Walker said. "Of course, we played a lot of reserves tonight. Who knows, there's no saying that if we kept our starters in we could have come back."

Dallas' starters combined for just 15 points. Leading scorer Michael Finley played just 12 minutes and had two points on 1-of-3 shooting. Mavericks coach Don Nelson rested him for the entire second half.

"After the first quarter I kind of figured what our coach was going to do," Finley said. "He felt like he could give his major-minute guys a rest and go out and try to win tomorrow."

"We tried to get some rhythm for the guys that didn't play and to rest my starters," Nelson said. "I was hoping to stay competitive and stay in the game, but that didn't happen. So we did the next best thing and played the game out."

A 19-5 run in the second quarter opened a 48-26 lead for the Jazz. Malone had two layups and three free throws and Russell converted a running jumper and a pair of free throws in the spurt.

Dallas hit just 4-of-18 shots in the second quarter and trailed 52-34 at the half.

"At that point, I didn't want to burn up our starters and have nothing left for tomorrow," Nelson said. Dallas plays its fifth game in six days on Saturday.

A 10-2 run in the third quarter, capped by a dunk by Greg Foster with 2:02 left, gave Utah its biggest lead at 68-42. The Mavericks scored just 10 points in the quarter on 2-of-15 shooting.

Dallas had just 61 points with less than a minute remaining and was on the verge of setting a club record for fewest points, but Hubert Davis hit a 22-foot jumper with 49 seconds left.

The Mavericks prevented Utah from breaking its club record for fewest points allowed when Erick Strickland hit a 20-footer with 24 seconds left.

Utah played without starting shooting guard Jeff Hornacek, who did not dress due to a sore knee.

The Mavericks played their first game without Cedric Ceballos, who will be sidelined 6-to-8 weeks with a fractured right wrist. He suffered the injury in the first quarter of Thursday's win over Denver.
