Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The last time the Los Angeles Clippers won in Utah, the Jazz played in the Salt Palace, the Berlin Wall was still standing and some other guy named Bush was president. The Clippers ended a 26-game losing streak here with a frenetic 96-89 victory over the Jazz as Elton Brand scored 24 points to lead six players in double figures. "It was a good win tonight," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "Everybody knows the trouble we've had winning in this building, so it's a great win for us against a real, real quality team." "This is a big, big victory for team morale," Brand added. "This is a big boost for us as a team." The Clippers had not beaten the Jazz on the road since April 18, 1989. Their losing streak was the fifth-longest in NBA history for any team in another team's city but well off the 43 in a row Sacramento dropped to the Los Angeles Lakers through the 1980s and into the early 1990s. Clippers rookie forward Chris Wilcox was 6 years old when the team last won here. He watched from the bench as his teammates raced to a 15-point halftime lead, then held on - practically for dear life - down the stretch. In the final minute, the Clippers threw away an inbounds pass, committed another turnover that wasn't called and missed four free throws. But they avoided a total collapse and beat the Jazz for the first time anywhere since March 27, 1999, ending a 15-game slide. "It wasn't a work of art, but that's irrelevant," Gentry said. "We found a way to come away with the win, and that's the most important thing." Andre Miller had 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Clippers, who won without injured center Michael Olowkandi (right thigh bruise). Seven-footer Wang Zhi Zhi stepped in and contributed 12 points and seven rebounds. Karl Malone scored 23 points and Matt Harpring added 22 for the Jazz, who had a four-game winning streak snapped. "A lot of people say, `How could this happen?'" Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "This is a part of basketball. You can remind players this is a very talented team. We tried to make that point clear to them. But regardless, it is a letdown." The Clippers led by as many as 15 points early in the fourth quarter, but the Jazz closed to 82-77 on a jumper by Harpring with 4:46 left. They had a chance to get closer, but John Stockton missed a layup and Corey Maggette made a reverse layup at the other end for a nine-point bulge with 3:10 to go. LA still wasn't totally clear. In the final minute, it had trouble inbounding the ball and called timeout, only to throw away the ensuing inbounds pass. Stockton quickly drew a foul and sank both free throws to make it 92-87 with 42 seconds left. Maggette clearly traveled on the next possession, but the violation wasn't called, bringing an irate Sloan off the bench all the way to mid-court. Miller was fouled but made just 1-of-2, and Stockton's layup made it 93-89 with 36 seconds to play. Brand was fouled and missed both free throws, but the rebound was tapped back to Miller, who again made 1-of-2. "We knew they weren't going to coast home, they were going to make a run at us," Gentry said. "We knew they would make several runs at us." "We played through the adversity," Miller added. "We played hard." Maggette scored 13 points and Lamar Odom added 12 and seven assists for the Clippers, who shot 44 percent (33-of-75) from the field and held a 50-39 advantage on the boards. Stockton had 14 points and nine assists and Andrei Kirilenko scored 12 points for the Jazz, who shot just 40 percent (35-of-87). "We just didn't come out ready to play," Harpring said. "We waited until the second half and they already had a 15-point lead. We came back, but it wasn't enough." Sean Rooks, who started for Olowokandi, scored eight of his 10 points in the first quarter as the Clippers opened a 23-19 lead. Brand scored 11 points in the second period to help widen the lead to 52-37 at halftime. Odom's 10-footer began the second half and gave Los Angeles its largest lead.
