Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz may be old and slow but they still know how to play defense.

The Jazz held the Orlando Magic to 33 points in the second half and none in the final 3:24 of a 99-84 victory that snapped a two-game losing streak.

Despite a starting lineup with three players 35 or older, Utah has not allowed more than 87 points in its last four games. Tonight, the Jazz held the Magic below 40 percent (29-of-73) and forced 23 turnovers.

"I thought we played a bit more aggressively defensively than what we have in the three or four games that we just finished," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said.

"We need more of what went on out there tonight, with everybody coming out and contributing and having great intensity defensively," Jazz guard John Stockton said.

Bryon Russell scored a season-high 23 points for the Jazz, who have won seven of the last eight meetings in the series. Karl Malone added 15 points and 12 rebounds in his 1,200th career contest and John Starks also scored 15.

"Everybody has a bad shooting night and tonight it was Karl so somebody's got to step it up and I just stepped it up," Russell said. "It wasn't just me. It's nice to see everybody step up."

"I think Bryon Russell was the one that really killed us," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I thought he had some really big minutes for them. He blocked a couple of shots, got a couple of dunks for them and he really helped."

Tracy McGrady played through a painful strained right hip and scored 24 points to lead the Magic, who have not won here since the days of Shaquille O'Neal. Orlando has lost five straight visits to Utah since March 31, 1995.

"I think we took another step forward," McGrady maintained. "We showed some pretty good stuff out there, but they're a great veteran ballclub, a ballclub that's been together for quite a few years and we're just getting started."

The Magic pulled within 56-55 on a three-point play by Darrell Armstrong with 9:50 left in the third quarter before the Jazz tightened their defense, holding Orlando scoreless for nearly four minutes.

Russell had a 3-pointer before completing a 9-0 run that pushed Utah's lead to 65-55 with 6:25 left in the period.

The Jazz took a 73-67 advantage into the final period but the Magic closed to 82-79 on a layup by McGrady with 6:02 to play. The teams traded baskets and Orlando still was within 88-84 on a jumper by Michael Doleac with 3:24 left.

But the Magic did not score again, missing their last five shots and a pair of free throws. Greg Ostertag's dunk began a closing 11-0 burst that included four free throws by Russell.

Orlando shot just 27 percent (10-of-37) in the second half.

John Stockton had 13 points and 11 assists for the Jazz, who shot 49 percent (33-of-67) and made 30-of-43 free throws to overcome 24 turnovers.

"I've never really cared who scores," Sloan said. "The bottom line is how we play and how we try to help each other. I was pleased that everybody was trying to be on the same page and working hard and trying to do the right thing. As long as you have that, you're going to be all right."

Armstrong had 16 points and nine assists for the Magic, who made 23-of-36 from the line and committed 23 turnovers leading to 27 points. Rookie Mike Miller scored 11 points and Bo Outlaw added 10, 13 rebounds, three steals and three blocks.

McGrady scored 15 and Armstrong added 11 in the first half but that was not enough to offset Russell's 11 that gave the Jazz a 55-51 lead.
