Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Thanks to Andrei Kirilenko, the Utah Jazz avoided a winless four-game road trip. Kirilenko had a tip-in as time expired to lift the Jazz to a 91-90 victory over the struggling New Jersey Nets. With the Jazz trailing by a point, John Stockton drove along the right baseline and took a one-handed jumper with just under two seconds left that appeared to be tipped by Nets forward Kenyon Martin. But with the ball falling short of the rim, Kirilenko managed to tip it in as the buzzer sounded. "I was actually open for the last shot," Kirilenko said. "I tried to tip it up and I thought I had missed the shot. I knew it was an airball, so I tried whatever I could to get it up to the basket. "We played very good today. We concentrated on playing zone, which surprised the Nets. The first three games of the road trip were frustrating, but today was a good win." New Jersey had grabbed a 90-89 lead when Martin drove for a layup with 14 seconds remaining. Coach Byron Scott reminded his team to box out when Utah called a timeout. "That was one tough loss," Scott said. "I thought we played well enough tonight to win the game. I remember in the huddle, the last thing I said was, 'Once that shot goes up, we have to get the guys off the glass. We can't allow them to get a second opportunity.' And they threw it up and Kirilenko tips it in." Utah coach Jerry Sloan admitted the play did not go according to plan. "They came out in a zone and we did not have a lot of stuff to look at," Sloan said. Karl (Malone) rolled out of the lane, (Scott) Padgett stepped out and they still had us covered. We tried a little high-low on the zone. "You have to take whatever you can and just stay after it because that is as important for guys to understand the shot goes in the air in that situation. That is who you want to be: the guy who rebounds and puts it in, instead of being a spectator standing out there, watching it drop and the clock running out." Malone had 20 points and eight rebounds and DeShawn Stevenson scored a career-high 18 off the bench for Utah, which posted a 106-103 overtime victory over New Jersey on January 20. In that game, Malone tipped in a tying shot just before the regulation buzzer. "I felt real comfortable out there," said Stevenson, whose previous career high was 16 in a loss against Minnesota on December 12, 2001. "The shot felt real good, so I kept shooting. Coach put us in a zone, which helped a lot and we were able to get a couple of steals and a couple of easy baskets." Kirilenko scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half. Martin scored 24 points and Kerry Kittles added 21 for the Nets, who fell to 4-7 since the All-Star break. Jason Kidd had 12 points, 15 assists and nine rebounds as New Jersey lost for the third time in its last six home games after a 23-2 start at Continental Airlines Arena. Kidd also had nine of New Jersey's 24 turnovers, which led to 18 points. "We have to take better care of the ball," Kittles said. "We are playing against a team with good structure and leadership. We were very careless with the ball, which allowed them to get a lot of easy points." Richard Jefferson had 13 points and 10 rebounds for New Jersey, which held a 44-31 advantage on the boards, including 15-8 in offensive rebounds. The Nets led by as many as 10 points in the first quarter and took a 48-39 advantage into the locker room as Martin made 5-of-6 shots and scored 13 points. Utah closed within one point three times in the third quarter, but New Jersey never trailed and took a 70-67 edge into the final 12 minutes. The Nets went over three minutes without a basket and Utah took an 84-83 lead on two free throws by Kirilenko with 3:58 remaining. After a bad pass by Kidd, Malone hit a turnaround jumper to give the Jazz an 86-83 advantage with 3:18 left. Martin ended New Jersey's drought by completing a three-point play with 2:54 remaining. Martin blocked a shot by Greg Ostertag, but Jefferson turned the ball over and Kirilenko capped a break with a dunk to put the Jazz ahead, 88-86, with 2:26 left.
