Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- It was hard to tell who was more lifeless - the rat that was thrown on the court or the Philadelphia 76ers. The Utah Jazz booted a rat off the court in the second quarter, then completed a 98-69 rout of the 76ers, who were held to a season-low in points. With 4:13 left in the second quarter, Utah's Karl Malone was set to take his second of two free throws, but a rat thrown from the top of the lower deck at the Delta Center landed at his feet. Jazz forward Scott Padgett kicked the rat under the front row next to the Utah bench, where it was gathered in a towel by assistant trainer Terry Clark and disposed of. "The referees looked kind of scared to go get it, so I thought I'd try to get on with the game," Padgett said. "It's a little unusual," Utah point guard John Stockton added. "I figured it was a fake rat, but I'm still kind of sticking to that story." Malone and former Sixer Matt Harpring each had 20 points and eight rebounds as Utah held Allen Iverson, the NBA's second-leading scorer, to 13 points for the second straight game. Iverson, who averages 28.1 points and a league-leading 42.9 minutes per game, picked up his third foul in the third quarter and played just 21 minutes. He never has won a game at the Delta Center and left the arena after saying, "I got no comment." Calbert Cheaney added 11 points and Padgett contributed 10 and eight rebounds for the Jazz, who returned from a 3-1 road trip and snapped a three-game home losing streak. "Iverson had a difficult night shooting the basketball and got himself in foul trouble," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "I think Cheaney did a terrific job of trying to get over screens. He has dedicated himself to helping us defensively. He has played some guys that have got big numbers." Sloan said his team used Friday's 103-98 loss at Portland as motivation. "We came out and used it as an excuse to play, to get our hands on the basketball a tremendous number of times," he added. "I thought they tried to help each other a little more, if not more than any games we have had all year. We tried to do the right things defensively." Utah also continued its mastery of Philadelphia, winning for the 21st time in the last 26 meetings. The Jazz owned a 22-12 lead after the first quarter and were up 44-29 at halftime before yielding just 13 points in the third quarter. Keith Van Horn and Kenny Thomas scored 10 points apiece for the 76ers, who dropped their fifth straight road game and fell to 0-2 on a season-high six-game trip. "We didn't show up to play," said Philadelphia coach Larry Brown, who pulled most of his starters midway through the second half, leaving only Van Horn, a former University of Utah star. "I wouldn't call us a team, but Utah was a team. They executed great, they were so much more physical and aggressive. ... You name it, we got 11 turnovers and six assists in the first half. That's happened to us a lot. You don't pass the ball and you can't guard." The Sixers had an extra-long Christmas break, with their last game a 79-77 defeat at Atlanta on December 21. Brown refused to use the layoff as an excuse. "This is the way we've been playing for a long time. We've gotten by because we've had a favorable schedule against some teams that weren't playing very well," Brown said. "This is the way we play." Asked if his team called a players-only meeting after its latest loss, Brown replied, "Oh, we lead the league in meetings. We should have met at halftime. That was what we were trying to do. "Tonight we didn't play as a team. I cracked up when (the media) said, `team.' That's a team, down in the other dressing room. Their starters are a team. It's all about winning and playing the right way and making your teammates better. We're not doing that." Philadelphia's Todd MacCulloch forged a 10-10 tie with a layup with 5:33 left in the first quarter, but Malone scored six points in a 10-0 spurt that gave Utah a 20-10 lead with 2:26 to go in the period. The Jazz scored 10 of the final 12 points of the quarter. Iverson's 20-foot jumper with 10:45 left in the second pulled the Sixers within 22-18. But Utah answered with a 17-5 run to push its advantage to 39-23 with 4:13 remaining before halftime. The Jazz, who owned a 44-29 edge at intermission, began the third quarter with a 26-5 burst to put the game out of reach. Mark Jackson's layup gave Utah a 70-34 lead with 4:07 to go in the period. Philadelphia shot 35 percent (24-of-68) from the field, making just 2-of-5 3-pointers, and surrendered 23 points off 21 turnovers. It was outrebounded, 45-33. "We got beat in every aspect of the game," said Sixers guard Eric Snow, who had four turnovers and just three points. "We got outworked, outdefended, they played better on offense, we turned the ball over more. You're not going to win any games playing like that. "We got to hold each other accountable. We got to look at ourselves in the mirror and realize that if you do what you are coached to do, and if you come in and know at the end of the day and know that you tried as hard as you can, if you can do that, I know we can win more games." The Jazz shot 50 percent (36-of-72) and converted 23-of-26 trips to the free-throw line.
