Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers are having trouble showing the composure they displayed last season as one of the NBA's best teams.

Karl Malone had 20 points and a season-high 17 rebounds and John Crotty scored 10 of his season-high 17 points in the decisive second quarter as the Utah Jazz cruised to an 89-81 victory over the struggling 76ers.

Philadelphia had few miscues en route to the NBA Finals last season but has lost four of its last six. The Sixers fell to 1-3 on a seven-game western road trip, and a string of inconsistent performances are forcing them to lost their cool.

After getting thoroughly outplayed in the second quarter, Philadelphia was trailing, 54-45, with seven minutes left in the third when Derrick Coleman -- who never has been considered well-behaved -- threw a punch at Malone.

Utah's Donyell Marshall was ejected after receiving two technicals for arguing a call 39 seconds later and Sixers forward Corie Blount soon followed. He received a technical with 5:25 left and was sent to the locker room.

Blount, who replaced Coleman after he was ejected, was given his first technical in the first half.

Philadelphia had a 26-21 lead after Aaron Mckie opened the second quarter with a running hook shot, but the Jazz responded with an 18-4 run.

Crotty scored 10 points during the burst. His layup with 8:17 to go put Utah ahead for for good, 27-26, and he capped the run with a jumper to make it 39-30 at 3:25.

"John Crotty is playing real excellent for us right now," Malone said. "He's playing with confidence and he's not afraid to shoot the ball. He learned that from me, I guess."

Philadelphia managed just 10 points in the period and trailed at halftime, 44-34. The Sixers got within 67-64 with 10:16 remaining in the fourth quarter, but Malone scored four points during a 6-0 spurt, securing Utah's fourth straight victory.

John Stockton had 10 points and six assists and rookie Andrei Kirilenko added 10 points and four blocks for the Jazz, who shot just 36 percent (33-of-91), going 1-of-11 from 3-point range.

Crotty and Kirilenko led Utah's bench, which outscored the Sixers' reserves, 51-23.

"We just come off the bench and try to give the team a lift," Kirilenko said. "We just come strong, crash the boards and play good defense. We try to play with confidence."

"I think our bench did a great job," Malone added. "They stepped up again, and that's what we need. It doesn't always show up what those guys do for us, but those guys are doing a great job."

The Sixers shot just 38 percent (29-of-76), made 20-of-32 free throws and committed 18 turnovers.

"The end result is we hurt ourselves by missing free throws," said Philadelphia coach Larry Brown, who was back on the sidelines after missing Friday's game with neck and shoudler spasms. "When you're making a rally and coming from behind, you have got to make free throws."

Crotty also did an excellent job defensively on Allen Iverson, who made 7-of-25 shots and scored 21 points.

"You've just got to stay between Allen and the basket and make every shot as tough as you can, making him shoot over you every time," Crotty said. "If you can take him out of the offense at all and get him out of rhythm, it really disrupts their flow."

Matt Harpring had 19 points and 10 rebounds and McKie added 14 points off the bench for the Sixers, who have lost 12 of their last 13 visits to the Delta Center.

"It's always tough to come into this building and leave with a win," McKie said. "We got ourselves into a position to win, then we just self-destructed."
