Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) - In what was perhaps their last visit to Madison Square Garden, Karl Malone and John Stockton got a good look at the future of the Utah Jazz. Malone scored 21 points and Stockton added 12 in limited time as the Jazz got a big boost from their bench in a 108-87 victory over the New York Knicks for their first road win of the season. Malone, 39, and Stockton, 40, have been together for 17 years, carrying the Jazz on a nightly basis. Both are among the NBA's 50 Greatest Players and shoo-ins for the Hall of Fame. Both also have hinted that this season may be their last. On Tuesday, both players got a well-deserved breather as Utah's reserves dominated the first half, scoring 31 points, grabbing 20 rebounds and building a 20-point lead. Malone played 37 minutes and Stockton played just 23, with both players receiving warm ovations from the nearly empty Garden as they took a seat in the final minutes. "I looked up at the Jumbotron because I didn't know what it was for," Malone said. "That was kinda neat." "It's just great to play here," Stockton said. "As a young player, it was a scary proposition, but it's the greatest place to play." It was scary for young Frank Williams, the rookie point guard of the Knicks who was pressed into action when Howard Eisley encountered foul trouble in the third quarter. Williams looked lost in trying to defend Stockton and veteran backup Mark Jackson, who have combined for more than 25,000 assists. "Those guys were able to take advantage and that's what they're supposed to do," Sloan said. "That's the nature of the game." Stockton, who played six scoreless minutes in the first half, scored 10 points in the third quarter. Malone added seven and Andrei Kirilenko - who also played just six minutes in the first half - totaled 11, helping Utah build an 80-50 lead late in the period. "This is a very unforgiving league," Malone said. "No disrespect, but you gotta kick 'em when they're down. They would've done the same thing to us." Kirilenko had 20 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in just 19 minutes for the Jazz, who shot 54 percent (39-of-72) from the field and held a 50-33 edge on the boards as they beat the Knicks for the ninth time in 10 meetings, including five straight here. Clarence Weatherspoon had 17 points and 12 rebounds - most of them in garbage time - for the Knicks, who shot just 35.5 percent (27-of-76) and dropped their third straight game to fall to 1-7, the worst record in the Eastern Conference. The Knicks again were without injured point guard Charlie Ward. Leading scorers Allan Houston and Kurt Thomas played despite injuries and scored 14 points each. "We let them shoot 50 percent from the field," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "That means we're not aggressive defensively at all. That's not satisfactory whatsoever. It doesn't matter whether you're hurt or not. We had enough healthy bodies out there to be able to defend." Stockton sat down midway through the opening quarter and did not return in the first half. The Jazz took the lead for good at 20-18 late in the quarter on a three-point play by Matt Harpring, who had 19 points and seven rebounds off the bench. With Malone and Stockton on the bench in the second quarter, Jackson had two jumpers around a 3-pointer by Harpring as part of an 11-0 spurt that gave Utah a 35-22 lead with 6:31 remaining. That is usually when Stockton returns, but Sloan kept him on the bench. "That second group we had in there, that's where we excelled," Stockton said. "Jerry just leaned over and said, `We're staying with this.' I just thought it was great coaching." Malone returned with 5:03 left and scored four quick points to push the lead to 41-24. Two free throws by Harpring made it 47-27 with 1:19 to go. "I wanna be out there. That's just the way it is," Malone said. "The young guys did a nice job, but ... I wanna be out there." In the first half, Utah's bench held a 31-7 edge in points and a 20-4 margin in rebounds over New York's reserves. "The second quarter usually has been pretty good for us this year," Harpring said. "The second group performed pretty well." Limited to one basket combined in the first half, Malone and Stockton teamed with Kirilenko to dominate the third quarter. Kirilenko had three three-point plays, including one that made it a 30-point game with 1:06 left. The Knicks got no closer than 17 points thereafter and again heard the boos from the announced crowd of 17,913, some of whom saved their cheers for Malone and Stockton. "We can't come out and play a game like this," Weatherspoon said. "We didn't set the tempo for either half. It was just bad basketball on our behalf."
