Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Karl Malone is not 10th on the all-time steals list without a reason. On a night when he scored 40 points and became just the second player in NBA history to reach 36,000, Malone came up with a key steal in the waning seconds to help the Utah Jazz cap a 111-108 comeback victory over the Orlando Magic. "After all these years, winning is still fun," said Malone, who turns 40 in July. "Winning makes my food taste better." "He's playing extremely well right now," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "He's had a great year considering his age and the way he takes care of himself. It's unbelievable to me that he's still playing." The Jazz trailed, 104-95, after a pair of free throws by Andrew DeClercq with 5 1/2 minutes remaining, but stormed back to take the lead, 109-107, with 1:43 left on two free throws by Andrei Kirilenko, who scored 11 points off the bench. "Andre made a couple of big shots and some big free throws," Sloan said. "He played well on (Tracy McGrady), and when he's stretched out, he's almost seven feet long. That has a little bit of an effect on people." The score remained unchanged when John Stockton missed a runner in the paint with eight seconds left. DeClercq grabbed the rebound under the basket and passed to Darrell Armstrong, but Malone intercepted the pass and was fouled with 1.5 seconds left. "I knew (DeClercq) was going to throw it," Malone said. "He was in a rush. Twice in the game I almost got two of them. Sometimes you get all caught up in one quick basket. I kind of knew what he was going to do." "To me, Drew (DeClercq) was so good tonight that without Drew we don't get back in this game," said Magic coach Doc Rivers, whose team trailed by 13 points early in the third quarter. "He was sensational, so for that one bad play, you count the 15 effort plays that he made. You were really happy for him. I thought he played great." Malone made 1-of-2 from the line to give the Jazz a three-point cushion, and the Jazz fouled sharpshooter Pat Garrity before he could attempt a shot. Garrity sank the first free throw to make it 110-108 with nine-tenths of a second to go but did not hit the rim while attempting to intentionally miss the second. Malone made 1-of-2 from the line and rookie Gordan Giricek was well off on a court-length shot at the buzzer. "We were talking about it earlier this year, just kind of joking around, like if you had to miss a shot, how would you do it?" Garrity said. "My intention was to get up there quick but it just got away from me a little bit, a little high, it hit the board instead of the rim. I was just trying to throw it as hard as I could at the front of the rim, have it come back to me. The chances of that happening are low." Malone joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) in the 36,000-point club. In addition to his season high in points, he had nine rebounds, seven assists and four steals. Stockton and Harpring added 12 points apiece for Utah, which has won back-to-back games after losing five of seven. Six players reached double figures for the Jazz, who shot 54 perent (38-of-71) and limited Orlando to 43 percent (35-of-82). McGrady scored 32 points and Garrity 20 off the bench for the Magic, who have dropped two in a row after winning eight of 10. Utah led by two points after one quarter and extended its lead to 58-49 at the break. The Jazz opened a 73-60 lead on a jumper by Malone with 8:01 left in the third quarter before the Magic tied the game, 88-88, entering the fourth quarter. "When you dig yourself a hole and you try and get yourself back into the game, the effort is great and everything is good, (but) when you finally get yourself back in there, it's like you don't have enough energy to get yourself over the hump," McGrady said. The Magic were coming off a 106-105 loss at Washington on Tuesday, while the Jazz had a day off. "I wouldn't think (Orlando would run out of gas)," Sloan said. "They're not 40 years old. Don't tell me about running out of gas. Hell, Karl likes to play basketball. There's no rules for being in shape. Playing back-to-back is the biggest cop-out in this business." "You just gotta be in shape," Malone said. "Everyone of those guys over there is a hell of a lot younger than we are. If you're running out of gas down the stretch, shame on you. ... it ain't about desire, it's about having your (rear) in shape." With the loss, Orlando failed in a bid for its first season sweep of Utah since the 1993-94 campaign, when it was led by Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway. "The only thing I told our guys, I thought what got us back in the game is we started attacking the basket," Rivers said. "Once we got the lead, we went back to taking jumpers and to me that's the sign of a tired team. It's easier to take the jump shot."
