Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz got one forward back but may have lost another.

Donyell Marshall returned to score a season-high 29 points and Karl Malone also had 29 before leaving in the fourth quarter as the Jazz won consecutive games for the first time this season with a 102-86 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Marshall missed the last two games with a pulled groin muscle but hardly looked out of sync. He made 13-of-20 shots, grabbed seven rebounds and was key in Utah's fourth-quarter dominance.

"I was a little nervous at first," he said. "I didn't think I would be able to come out and play as well as I did. I tried to play the best I could. I think I was able to be aggressive and that helped the team."

Malone made 10-of-16 shots and collected eight rebounds and seven assists. But he left due to a hyperextended left knee with 6:12 remaining and will be re-evaluated Saturday.

Fortunately for Utah, Marshall had already helped ensure the outcome before Malone left.

The Jazz were clinging to a 69-67 lead entering the final period. Malone opened with consecutive baskets to spark a 14-3 run in which Marshall scored four points.

Marshall scored 11 points in the quarter and capped the decisive run with a dunk for an 83-70 advantage with 8:25 left.

Utah led by double digits thereafter and secured its first winning streak since April 7-9.

"There has to be a confidence factor that builds," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "When things are tough, can you fight back or are you just willing to lay down and die and accept the fact that you are supposed to lose?"

The Clippers made just one basket in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter and just 4-of-18 shots in the final 12 minutes.

"We just got flat," Los Angeles forward Elton Brand said. "They don't have a great record but they're still a good team. They're a veteran ballclub."

John Stockton had 13 points, seven assists and six rebounds and rookie Andrei Kirilenko added 11 points and six rebounds for the Jazz, who have won 12 straight meetings with the Clippers dating to March 27, 1999.

Utah shot just 41 percent (34-of-83) but made 31-of-42 free throws in a sloppy game that featured 59 fouls. Los Angeles also shot 41 percent (32-of-77) but made only 21-of-35 free throws on its home floor.

"The bottom line is that we didn't play very good," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry said. "They executed well against us and once they got a lead, made it very difficult on us."

Brand had 25 points and 10 rebounds and Lamar Odom added 15, nine and seven assists for the Clippers, who played without guard Eric Piatkowski due to a strained right hip.

Corey Maggette and Jeff McInnis scored 14 points apiece but combined for seven of the team's 20 turnovers and made 12-of-30 shots.

"Every time we got the lead, we made silly turnovers," Gentry said. "It's tough to beat (the Jazz) when you turn the ball over. We did all the things that will cause you to lose to a veteran team."

Los Angeles went on a 14-4 run bridging the first two quarters to snap a tie and take its largest lead, 31-21, with 8:50 left in the second period.

The Clippers had a 33-24 cushion when Utah reeled off nine straight points and tied it on hook shot by Marshall with 4:29 left.

The teams were tied at halftime, 42-42, but Los Angeles opened the second half with seven straight points highlighted by five from Brand, who hit a jumper and completed three-point play.

The Clippers led, 59-50, with 5:28 left in the third quarter, but the Jazz scored 11 of the next 13 points. Malone opened the run with a three-point play and tied it, 61-61, on a jumper at the 3:19 mark. He added six more points during the spurt and collected 11 in the final 5:14 of the period.

Scott Padgett gave the Jazz the lead for good, 69-67, on the final play, tipping in a missed 3-pointer by Kirilenko.
