Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Karl Malone and Matt Harpring gave John Stockton a 41st birthday present he would enjoy - another Utah Jazz victory. Malone scored 24 points and Harpring added 18 as the Jazz blew past the Portland Trail Blazers, 94-85, for their fifth straight triumph. "He's amazing, he's 41 and still playing NBA basketball," Harpring said of Stockton, the league's all-time assists and steals leader. "He's playing against guys that are 21 and still beating them, it's phenomenal. Words can hardly express what a phenomenal feat it is to play in this league at 41." "The thing that is so good about him is his consistency in the way he plays," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "You couldn't tell if he was 25 or 30 tonight or throughout the year. He still plays the same way he played before, and I think that's the beauty of playing with him." Stockton, the NBA's oldest player, had eight points and 10 assists and smiled broadly after diving into a cameraman while trying to save a loose ball in the third quarter. "I was just glad I didn't hit anything," Stockton said. "I ran in there and the cameraman bailed me out. He lifted the camera up and I just hit him, so it was a relatively soft landing." "You just come to expect it," the 39-year-old Malone said of Stockton's high-quality play. "I've played with him enough, I think I'm probably like his family, we take him for granted." The Jazz scored the first eight points and took a 27-18 lead into the second quarter. Utah led 48-36 at the half, 70-49 after three quarters and by as much as 79-54 with 8:47 left before Portland's subs made the final score respectable. "It was pretty good, pretty good (three) quarters we played," Malone said. "Everybody competed and played hard and did what we needed to do but it was a nice team effort by everybody." "They did well up until the finish," Sloan said. "You watch the end of the ballgame and it looked like we were playing ratball." Rasheed Wallace scored 21 points and Jeff McInnis added 15 off the bench for the Blazers, who have lost five of seven games. "If we win, you don't need to worry about it," said Portland forward Bonzi Wells, who scored just three points. "We are losing right now, so we got to worry about it. When we start to win, we'll put all this stuff behind us." Portland saw its lead for fifth place in the Western Conference standings slip to two games over sixth-place Utah. It is 1 1/2 games behind fourth-place Minnesota. "I'm not concerned with the (playoff) race, I'm just concerned with the way we played tonight," Cheeks said. "We have to get back to playing the basketball we know we can." "You just take every game as an equal but after the fact you realize (the playoff ramifications)," Malone said. "You still just try to go out and play and take one game at a time. Then after the game you say, 'OK," and start looking at (the standings) a lot more." Portland, which allowed Washington to shoot 51 percent in a 95-91 home setback on Tuesday, permitted Utah to connect on half its 70 shots while shooting 45 percent. "They just beat us in pretty much every area," Cheeks said. "It was a well-played game by them and a tired, poorly played game by us." Utah had 31 assists and committed 16 turnovers, while Portland had 18 assists and 20 turnovers. Stockton had only two giveaways. "We have always said he is a guy that is always playing forward - he never plays backwards," Sloan said. "He is a very unique player. Even if he is 41, I think he looks as good as some guys at 21." "I still love to play," Stockton said. "It's a great game and there's no other game like it. "I do love to play, and (age) is just part of the deal."
