Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- After his first scoreless game and his 10th missed game, Karl Malone had his 1,000th great game. Malone had a huge second half and finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists to power the Utah Jazz to a 110-97 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Earlier this week, the durable Malone was battling a head cold and went scoreless for the first time in his illustrious career in Sunday's loss at Seattle. His condition worsened to the flu and he sat out Wednesday' home loss to Detroit, just the 10th time he has missed a game in 17-plus seasons. Malone started slowly, scoring just six points in the first half. But he set the tone on both ends at the outset of the second half, when the Jazz took control of the game. "He didn't look sick to me; he looked good," Hawks forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim said. "He was much more aggressive in the second half. That was the difference." "He had a humongous game," Jazz assistant Phil Johnson said. "He played within himself, he let the game come to him and then he got the ball to other people." Malone scored 13 points in the third period, including eight in an 18-4 burst that opened the second half. He had eight more in the fourth quarter, when he shoved Theo Ratliff before having words with Atlanta's center. Asked after the game how he felt, Malone snapped, "No one gives a (hoot). You'll make your own assumptions anyway. That's it." "He's healthy, he's alive, we're glad to have him back," long-time teammate John Stockton said. Matt Harpring scored 25 points off the bench for the Jazz, who have won their last nine home meetings with the Hawks. Jason Terry made a career-high six 3-pointers and scored 31 points for Atlanta, which beat Utah in its opener but failed in a bid for its first season sweep since the 1992-93 campaign. "They were the aggressors," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "They really got after us from the start. We tried to respond and get back into it at halftime, and they came right back in the third. Every time, they turned it up a notch and got a little aggressive and physical with us. We lost those battles." Atlanta led 52-51 at halftime, but Utah scored the first eight points of the second half and 18 of the first 22 to open a 69-56 lead with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter. Malone led the charge with eight points. "We just couldn't recover from that," Hawks forward Glenn Robinson said. "We made a lot of unforced errors. I know I had a lot of turnovers in the third quarter that kind of took us out of our rhythm. I feel kind of responsible for that run in the third quarter." "It's simple: balls were passed to him," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "Karl knows how to get open, but he can't be effective if he calls for the ball on his left side and they throw to his right." Two 3-pointers by Terry cut the deficit to 83-77 late in the third quarter. But Mark Jackson made a jumper at the horn and Malone opened the final period with a basket, rebuilding the lead to 10 points. A 7-0 burst capped by a hoop from Harpring gave Utah a 96-81 lead with 8:40 to play. Andrei Kirilenko scored 16 points and Stockton and DeShawn Stevenson added 11 each for the Jazz, who shot 49 percent (40-of-82) from the field and made 28-of-39 free throws, including 15-of-15 in the second half. "For some reason they keep score when you shoot free throws, and it is always nice when you see them go in," Sloan cracked. Kirilenko also did a fine job on Robinson, limiting the high-scoring forward to 16 points on 6-of-19 shooting. "Kirilenko came out early and was very, very active," Kruger said. "He took the fight back to (Robinson) and set the tone, perhaps." Abdur-Rahim scored 17 points for the Hawks, who shot 48 percent (34-of-71) but were outrebounded, 43-25.
