Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz wasted little time ending the Boston Celtics' dreams of a third straight victory against the Western Conference's elite.

Utah opened up strong and used a 15-2 run in the second quarter to jump into first place in the Midwest Division with a 114-99 victory over the Celtics, who were coming off wins against Seattle and Portland.

Karl Malone had 30 points, 13 rebounds and two steals as the Jazz moved one-half game ahead of San Antonio in the Midwest.

Utah's John Stockton made just 1-of-5 shots from the field and scored five points but collected 11 assists and six rebounds.

Bryon Russell scored 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting and Jacque Vaughn added 10 off the bench for the Jazz, who have won seven of their last eight games and improved to 14-6 against the Eastern Conference.

Utah shot 47 percent (35-of-75) and made 6-of-11 from the arc but won the game on the boards, where they held a 55-28 edge.

"If you want to win championships, that's one of the things (rebounding) that has always been important," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think Donyell Marshall has opened guys eyes up to see how you have a chance to rebound. You have somebody who sets a tone and because he has done that I think other guys have made improvements with it."

Marshall was in foul trouble from the start and had just eight points and three rebounds in 28 minutes. Utah's bench was a huge factor with 53 points, 24 rebounds and 18-of-35 shooting from seven different players.

Aside form the contributions of Russell and Vaughn, Greg Ostertag had eight points and five rebounds, Danny Manning and Scott Padgett scored seven apiece and DeShawn Stevenson chipped in with five points.

"We got some great minutes from the bench," Malone said. "That really sustained what we had going. The guys have really been working hard. Once you get in there you have to ready to play and they were."

"It was real team effort and it's good that we have guys that can come off the bench and play the way they do," said Utah guard John Starks, who scored eight points.

The Jazz took control early with a balanced offensive attack. Utah broke a 4-4 tie with 12 straight points, capped by a dunk from Stevenson that made it 16-4 with 6:21 to go.

Antoine Walker singlehandedly kept the Celtics in it, scoring 11 points during a 13-4 second quarter run that brought them within 35-33 with 7:11 to go.

"We got off to a fairly decent start," Sloan said. "We went through a stretch of the ballgame where we had a nice lead and they came down and keep making shots."

But Utah scored 15 of the next 17 points to seize control of the game and take a 50-35 lead with four minutes to go in the first half. Boston closed within eight but the Jazz scored six of the final seven points in the half and took a 58-44 lead into the half after John Crotty nailed a 3-pointer with three seconds left.

"When they get a lead in their building they tend not to relinquish that lead," Boston coach Jim O'Brien said.

The Jazz led by as many as 21 in the third quarter and 23 in the fourth as Boston never threatened after halftime.

The Celtics did not help themselves offensively, shooting just 39 percent (28-of-71). Boston made 30-of-40 from the line and shot 47 percent (13-of-28) from 3-point range.

Walker finished with 27 points and Paul Pierce had 22 but the duo combined to shoot just 16-of-37 and committed seven of Boston's 16 turnovers.

Chris Carr added 15 points off the bench while Vitaly Potapenko and Bryant Stith chipped in 10 apiece for the Celtics, who fell to 2-2 on their seven-game road trip.
