Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Miami Heat coach Pat Riley did not like what he saw from his team during the first 2 1/2 quarters. The view from the locker room could not have been much better. Karl Malone collected 29 points and 13 rebounds as the Utah Jazz handed the Heat their 10th loss in 12 games, 83-73. "We're fighting for our playoff lives right now," said Malone, whose team is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for sixth place in the Western Conference playoff race. "Nobody's going to be talking about the playoffs if we don't take care of business. We might not go to the playoffs, so of course a win is a win. And at this point they're big wins for us." The Heat, who fell behind for good at 4-2, shot just 30 percent in the first half but trailed just 48-41 when Riley was ejected with 6:34 left in the third quarter after picking up two technicals in 11 seconds. He was whistled for the second technical for arguing a foul called on Brian Grant. "You get to the point where you don't get the calls where you feel you deserve one," said Riley, who has been fined multiple times this season for criticizing officials. "It's ticky-tack at one end, and couple of hammers at the other end that you don't get. It just boils over. It is very frustrating for me, and it's frustrating for my players." "That's not a big deal," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, who served a seven-game suspension after shoving an official at Sacramento on January 28, of Riley's ejection. "We've all had problems with officials. You think I'm worried about that?" Utah opened a 15-point advantage four minutes later and took a 66-57 lead into the fourth quarter. Miami did not score for the first 3:53 of the final period and got no closer than seven points thereafter. Matt Harpring added 17 points and John Stockton 14 for the Jazz, who had lost five of their previous seven contests but extended their winning streak against the Heat to five games. "A win is a win, no matter how you look at it," said Harpring, whose team lost by 24 points at Dallas in the opener of a five-game road trip on Saturday. "A win over the Miami Heat is the same thing as a win over Dallas in the standings. We gotta win. There's guys right behind us in the standings, and of course there's guys right ahead of us, too. So we gotta win." "Losing should never get out of your system," Malone said. "Losing should make your food not taste the same, should make music not sound the same. Losing should leave a bad taste in your mouth. Losing to Sacramento and Dallas still matters. Everybody says you played hard, but a loss is a loss." Utah shot just 44 percent (28-of-63) but limited Miami to 33 percent (27-of-82). "You can't win when you shoot 33 percent against them," Riley said. "We play with a lot of grit, but also a lot of frustration at the same time. It sort of diffuses your effort also defensively. So when you break down and you're not making enough shots, you don't feel good about what you're doing." Heat rookie Caron Butler scored 19 of his 24 points in the third quarter but was blanked over the final 12 minutes. His production in the third period was a team season high for any quarter. "They foul hard," said Butler, who shoved Malone late in the contest. "Lot of back picks, lot of cuts, and it's hard to try and defend that because when you try to body them, they get calls." "Come on, man, I got kids older than him," Malone said of Butler. "I don't get caught up in that (stuff)." No other player reached double figures for Miami, which capped a five-game homestand with four straight defeats. "In the third quarter we didn't zone hardly at all," Sloan said. "In the fourth we zoned a little more, and they missed some shots. I don't know if it was our zone in particular, I just think they missed."
