Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Karl Malone passed Michael Jordan and the Utah Jazz gave coach Jerry Sloan a 48-minute effort in a 115-99 blowout of the floundering Golden State Warriors.

Malone scored 27 points in three quarters and hit his first three shots of the night, the last of which catapulted him ahead of Jordan and into third place on the NBA's all-time points list with 29,278.

The 14-year veteran from Louisiana Tech has captured two of the last three NBA Most Valuable Player awards, but has failed to capture an elusive championship, while Jordan picked up six trophies during his illustrious career.

"It's all happened really fast, even though its been 15 years, it's still happened really fast and I haven't had the chance to enjoy it yet," Malone said.

Malone's patented jumper from 19 feet out with 9:12 left in the first quarter pushed the 6-9 power forward past Jordan and within striking distance of Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) for second place.

Officials called timeout on the floor as the appreciative Delta Center crowd gave Malone an extended standing ovation.

"I've been fortunate enough to stay healthy and had a lot of guys that believed in my abilities when a lot of people didn't," Malone added. "The coaching staff, the organization -- I've had some great teammates that helped me out in that aspect and you know it's by hard work and that's what you try to do, but I'm glad that it was done within the team concept."

Malone hit 12-of-14 shots and also had eight rebounds and 10 assists in 31 minutes. He was denied a chance at a triple-double by Sloan, who kept him on the bench for the fourth quarter.

"When I finish playing the game, I don't want to be known as a guy that just scored and rebounded," Malone said. "I want to be the guy that had a well-rounded game."

The Jazz were coming off back-to-back lackluster performances, including Friday's 100-87 loss here that elicited some heavy criticism from Sloan regarding the effort of his starting five.

Tonight, the first unit pounded the Warriors from the outset and kept the pressure on all night, coasting to their 14th consecutive win in the series. Malone averaged 30.7 points in the previous eight meetings with Golden State.

"Congratulations to Karl Malone. I think that's quite an accomplishment on his part," Sloan said. "I guess the most important thing is winning and not about getting better or anything."

Rookie Scott Padgett scored a season-high 16 points off the bench and John Stockton also had 16 for Utah (8-6), which avoided slipping to .500.

Damon Jones had a season-high 17 points off the bench for the Warriors, who have lost a season-high six straight games to slip to 2-11, the worst record in the Western Conference.

Antawn Jamison and Tony Farmer tallied 15 points apiece for Golden State, which shot 52 percent (37-of-71). But the Warriors were unable to contend with Utah's 58 percent (42-of-73) performance behind Malone.

The Jazz set the tone in the opening quarter, outscoring the Warriors 41-19 as Malone drained all six of his shots.

Mookie Blaylock opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, giving the Warriors their lone lead of the night. Malone sank a 17-footer and Stockton added a layup as the Jazz pulled ahead for good, 6-4, with 10:39 remaining in the first quarter.

"We are digging ourselves a hole to some pretty good teams," Jamison said. "This is the NBA with some of the best athletes in the world. You spot them a 15-, 20-, 25-point lead in the first quarter, it's going to be difficult for you to try to come back and get a victory."

Malone followed with a layup on a perfect feed from Stockton, but it was Hornacek who fed the "Mailman" for his biggest basket of the night, the one that moved him past the one player that stood between him and a pair of NBA championships.

"You know what? That little kid that grew up in Louisiana is living proof that if you believe in yourself when nobody else does, you can do a lot of things," Malone said.

Bryon Russell scored 14 points and capped a 12-0 run with a 3-pointer to give Utah a commanding 22-6 lead with 6:48 left in the opening period. Golden State never seriously challenged thereafter.
