Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz are making the best of a bad situation.

Karl Malone narrowly missed a triple-double with 35 points, eight rebounds and seven assists as the Jazz extended their road winning streak to five games with a 103-92 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Utah used a 14-5 burst to open the fourth quarter and pull away from Cavaliers, who had a four-game winning streak snapped. Malone had 10 in the final quarter as the Jazz improved to 5-2 on its franchise-record nine-game road trip.

The journey, which bridges the All-Star break, was a byproduct of Salt Lake City hosting the Winter Olympics. But after dropping their first two games on the trip, Utah has rebounded to play some of its best basketball of the season.

"You go on the road and you lose the first two and then we win five straight after the All-Star break," Malone said. "You take one game at a time and don't worry about back-to-backs. You don't worry about how the other team is playing."

"It's a character building trip for us," said Jazz guard John Starks, who had 10 points. "We know what this means to our season. We play on the road as a team and it is a month on the road together as a team. Staying on the road keeps you hungry and focused."

Rookie Andrei Kirilenko had 15 points and John Stockton added 12 for the Jazz, who are in the midst of their longest winning streak since reeling off five straight wins in February 2001.

"It's better to have long road trips and I have always felt that way," Stockton said. "Every one of the guys is on the same page. That has helped us."

Lamond Murray scored 25 points and Andre Miller added 18 for Cleveland.

The Cavaliers were within 77-73 just 78 seconds into the fourth quarter, but Kirilenko had a dunk to ignite an 11-1 run. Malone had the final four points in the spurt -- all from the free throw line.

Miller sank two free throws with just over four minutes to go that got Cleveland within 95-87, but an 8-3 Utah run, capped by a free throw by Byron Russell sealed the game.

Kirilenko had 11 points in the final quarter while Cleveland made just 4-of-15 shots in the period.

"When we started the fourth quarter we looked like a young inexperienced basketball team," Cavaliers coach John Lucas said.

"They played hard-nosed defense," Miller said. "They got to the free-throw line and made some big plays to win the game."

Malone had six points in the opening quarter, when Cleveland made just 4-of-20 shots. Utah led 22-13 after 12 minutes and was up 15 at the half.

"You can't have droughts like we did tonight and expect to win," Lucas said.

Cleveland, which shot 26 percent (10-of-38) in the first half, got back in the game with a huge third quarter. Murray had 11 points in the period as the Cavaliers outscored the Jazz, 36-25.

Cleveland was seeking its first five-game winning streak since winning six in a row from December 5-16, 2000.
