Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- John Stockton still has plenty left in his tank. The 40-year-old Stockton scored 12 of his season-high 22 points in the fourth quarter and added 10 assists as the veteran Utah Jazz handed the precocious Indiana Pacers just their second defeat in 15 games, 102-91. "It was the Stockton of old," said Jazz forward Matt Harpring, who scored 15 points. "It's amazing that he can still do that at age 40." "He really played great, he really controlled the flow of the game," backup guard Mark Jackson said. "He attacked, was aggressive, big foul shots, great defense - even being overmatched (against bigger players). You appreciate guys who time and time again make solid plays and win ballgames." Karl Malone, 39, added 21 points for the Jazz, who have won seven of eight. "They have a lot of pride," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said of Stockton and Malone. "Especially after Malone had the game that he had in San Antonio (seven points on 1-of-16 shooting in a 107-85 loss on Saturday). We knew he'd come out and have a pretty good game tonight." Jermaine O'Neal contributed 25 points and Al Harrington 17 in the loss. Future Hall of Famer Reggie Miller, 37, was held scoreless for the first time since 1989. Miller, one of the NBA's best free-throw shooters, uncharacteristically missed all three of his attempts from the line and was 0-of-3 from the field in 26 minutes. "It's our fourth game in five nights, just like Malone just went through a 1-for-16 night," Thomas said. "You know, when you are at that age, and you come to do it every single night, some nights, it's just not there." "I was surprised a little bit," O'Neal said. "But he's one of those guys that when he scores, he scores in a big way. He's one of the all-time greatest, and he makes big shots when we need big shots. One thing I know about Reg, he's going to come back for us." Utah led, 86-75, after a layup by Jarron Collins with 6:01 to play, but Indiana climbed within 93-89 on a jumper by O'Neal with 2:37 left. But Ron Artest lost the ball on a 4-on-1 break and Harpring converted a layup to give the Jazz a six-point cushion with 1:54 remaining. With 59 seconds left, Andrei Kirilenko missed a 3-pointer for Indiana. But Greg Ostertag grabbed the offensive rebound and fed Kirilenko for a layup, and Stockton went 5-of-5 from the line down the stretch to close out the scoring for Utah. "Greg played very good, especially the last two minutes," Kirilenko said. "It was excellent. We helped each other and got those two points. "It was a big win, especially coming off the loss we had the other day, when we just got manhandled in the second half. We played pretty much together the whole night and made stops in the end, too. They may have made a nice little run, but we held on and got the win." The Pacers fell to 1-1 on their season-high six-game road trip. Utah extended a three-point halftime lead to 70-55 on a pair of free throws by Malone with 5:14 to play in the third quarter. Indiana scored the next 10 points but Utah closed the period on a 9-2 burst to extend its advantage to 79-67 entering the fourth quarter. "We didn't come out well in the third quarter," O'Neal said. "We kind of got ourselves in a hole. They played well. Once we got ourselves back into the game, there wasn't a shot that we could make. They really put us on our heels." The Jazz defeated the Pacers for the fourth time in five meetings and beat them for the ninth time in 11 games at the Delta Center. "It's our fourth game in five nights and I could see our guys were running a little bit in the mud," Thomas said. "But I thought that Utah came out and were really sharp and played a solid game." "I don't think we saw Reggie Miller at the top of his game, but the others played well," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said of the Pacers. "That is why they are such a good team. "You can see why they have won a lot of games. They have a lot of terrific starters. They can win if they play together. Their future looks real bright." The physical contest featured five individual technical fouls, three defensive three-second violatoins and a flagrant foul.
