Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- No Karl Malone, no problem for the Utah Jazz.

Playing without the suspended Malone, the Jazz coasted to their season-high seventh straight win with a 98-80 victory over the lowly Vancouver Grizzlies as Jeff Hornacek and Shandon Anderson scored 18 points apiece.

Hours after being named the NBA Player of the Week, Malone was suspended one game without pay and fined $4,000 for throwing a punch at Houston's Othella Harrington in Sunday's 85-76 win. Tonight's absence was just the sixth for Malone in 1,102 career games.

Hornacek and Anderson scored nine points apiece in the opening half as the Jazz opened a 17-point halftime lead and never were threatened in remaining perfect against the Grizzlies in 15 all-time meetings. Utah also swept three games from Vancouver this season.

"You don't take Karl Malone out of the lineup and not get worried," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We've been fortunate because we haven't had to worry too much because he doesn't miss games. Fortunately we had a lot of people who played well."

The winning streak has pulled Utah even with the Portland Trail Blazers for the best record in the league at 28-8.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 22 points and rookie Mike Bibby had 12 for the Grizzlies, who lost for the 12th time in their last 14 games. Vancouver (7-31) has the second worst record in the league, better than only the Los Angeles Clippers.

"They are a good team regardless if you take him off the team," commented Abdur-Rahim about Malone's absence. "I mean they are still not a terrible team because they still got Stockton, Hornacek and Bryon Russell. I mean they still got guys that could play the game. There are a lot of teams in this league they could beat without Karl Malone."

The Grizzlies actually were competive with Utah early in the game and within 31-28 with 8:20 left in the second quarter on a 21-footer by DeJuan Wheat.

But after Wheat's jumper, the Grizzlies began to look like the team that has accumulated the most losses in the league over the last three seasons while the Jazz started looking like the team that has been to NBA Finals the last two years.

Howard Eisley made a driving layup and Greg Ostertag sank a jumper to fuel a 17-4 burst Anderson capped with a free throw to push the lead to 48-32 with 3:09 to play before the half. The Jazz led 56-39 at intermission.

Anderson finished 5-of-7 shots as the Jazz shot 53 percent (34-of-64). Hornacek made 7-of-9 attempts from the floor.

"I think it worked to our advantage tonight because usually everybody knows the ball is going to Karl (Malone)," Anderson said about playing without their leading scorer. "Tonight we were able to spread the ball around and other people got their shots and it really worked for us."

The Jazz took their biggest lead of the contest at 61-39 with 10 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter after John Stockton, who finished with 12 points and 11 assists, converted a layup.

A jumper by Bibby with 9:40 left in the fourth quarter pulled the Grizzlies within 79-65, but they could get no closer.

Bibby made 8-of-15 shots as Vancouver shot shot 37 percent (27-of-74).
