Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks were so focused on stopping Karl Malone that they forgot about Andrei Kirilenko. Kirilenko scored 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter as the Utah Jazz posted a 95-92 victory over the slumping Mavericks. Malone finished with 23 points, but had just four in the final period as Dallas centered its defensive strategy around containing him. But that backfired as Malone found Kirilenko for several easy baskets down the stretch. "He executed the offense," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "He shot the ball when he got it. That was a wonderful thing about him to be able to finish that way. Whatever it takes, we have to do a better job to try and get him to be a better player. That is my responsibility." The inability to stop the Russian forward sent the Mavericks (57-22) to a season-high third straight loss and dropped them two games behind San Antonio for first place in the Midwest Division and the NBA's best record. "He's so long," Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki said. "He's an amazing offensive rebounder and if you don't put a body on him after a shot goes up, he's going to find a way to get to the glass and get his long arms on it. He made some special plays down the stretch. He's a special player." "He executed very well," Utah forward Calbert Cheaney said. "Sometimes, Andrei with all of his excitement, gets running around a little bit. But I thought he stayed in our stuff and that really enables him to make big plays for us down the stretch." Utah took a tenuous 68-66 lead into the fourth quarter before Kirilenko went to work. His final dunk of the game gave Utah the lead for good at 80-78 with 5:41 remaining and his layup with 2:38 to go extended the advantage to 89-81. "You know I was just in the right spot at the right time," Kirilenko said. "I try to do what I can." Utah seemed to finish off the Mavs when John Stockton drilled a 3-pointer with 92 seconds remaining for a 92-83 lead. But Steve Nash hit a fadeaway and Nowitzki added a 3-pointer to close the deficit to 94-92 with eight seconds to play, forcing the Jazz to sweat at the end. "I thought we had some minutes where we played very well," Sloan said. "They are a tough team for us to try and guard to keep them from getting on top of the basket." Kirilenko's big effort helped the Jazz overcome one of its worst efforts from the line. Utah shot 21-of-38 from line and held a slim 95-92 lead when Kirilenko missed its final free throw. But the Mavericks never got a shot off. Guarded by Kirilenko, Nick Van Exel, who buried two clutch 3-pointers in the final 4 1/2 minutes of their 92-90 win at the Delta Center on February 3, dribbled the ball off his foot. "Anybody that's on the floor is an option and Raja Bell saw that Kirilenko fell down and thought that maybe Nick would have an open shot," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "Everybody on the floor has an opportunity to catch and make the game winner." Nowitzki scored 34 points and Raef LaFrentz added 21 for Dallas, which has split its last 12 contests. "It was a tough road trip," LaFrentz said. "We played three good teams and three teams that are playing better than we are right now. We're not playing that great, but we'll get around in time for playoffs." The teams headed into the locker room tied at 45-45 and Dallas took a 70-68 edge into the fourth quarter as Nowitzki had 20 points.
