Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Despite Damon Stoudamire's best efforts, the Utah Jazz avoided their longest losing streak in two decades. Matt Harpring scored 11 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and five players scored in double figures as the Jazz snapped a six-game losing streak with a 92-87 triumph over Stoudamire and the Portland Trail Blazers. Utah had not lost seven consecutive games since a nine-game slide during the 1982-83 season - the last time the franchise finished with a sub-.500 record. "This is big. It's a relief and, at the same time, we made progress," Jazz forward Carlos Boozer said. "We played really good defense, we got big stops down the stretch, got key rebounds and hit our free throws. It's definitely a big win for us." Harpring, who struggled early in the game and scored just three first-half points, was pivotal down the stretch. On four separate occasions in the second half, he scored to give Utah the lead. "He was alive, he was active, he came off of screens and we got him the ball a couple of times. He played hard in the first quarter, but things weren't falling for him," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I thought he played really hard, and I think a lot of the guys played really hard. Not all the time, but more so than we have been during this stretch. Our confidence had been getting pretty thin." After a clutch layup by Utah rookie Kirk Snyder snapped a 76-76 tie with 33 seconds remaining, Portland's Zach Randolph answered with a runner in the lane 14 seconds later to tie the score. Randolph quickly went from hero to goat 18 seconds later, fouling Mehmet Okur on a 3-pointer with 1.3 seconds remaining. "That was just a bad call," Randolph said. "I thought we got a lot of bad calls toward the end. It was a close game. I feel like we matched their effort, we played well toward the end, but we got some bad calls." Okur sank all three free throws to give Utah an 81-78 edge, but Stoudamire - who had just one basket over the first 47 minutes, used a screen to break loose from Carlos Arroyo - caught the inbounds pass in the corner and buried a game-tying 3-pointer as time expired. "Usually, in the last six games when we lost, when it came down to crunch time, the other team always seemed to score," Harpring said. "We tried to give the game away again in a couple of sequences, but we fought back." The overtime period was just as tightly contested as the fourth quarter. Harpring's jumper gave Utah an early 83-81 edge, but Portland knotted the game at 84-84 just a minute later as Stoudamire's fourth steal of the game led to a layup by Randolph, who scored 23 points. Just 41 seconds later, Randolph was called for traveling for the third time in the game, giving the Jazz another chance to take the lead. They did just that as Boozer's lefthanded layup gave them an 86-84 lead with 2:10 remaining. Derek Anderson's 3-pointer 28 seconds later put the Blazers ahead before Harpring answered with a jumper with 1:20 remaining, giving the Jazz the lead for good. Boozer and Arroyo each hit a free throw in the closing moments and Harpring sank a pair of foul shots with one second remaining to seal the victory. "Utah hung in there and they just grinded the game out. They grinded it out a little more than we did," Stoudamire said. "They made the plays and got the calls down the stretch and, in a game like this, that's what you need. You've gotta make plays, and they made them." Snyder saw significant playing time for the third game in a row, playing 26 minutes. He scored a career-high 13 points to go along with three boards and a pair of blocks. "I just put (Snyder) out there because he's got athletic ability," Sloan said. "He needs playing time, and it looks like he'll probably get some more. That's what it's all about. When things get as tough to win as we've had here lately, we've gotta start putting somebody else in. I thought he played really hard." Boozer and Harpring each scored 17 points and Okur added 14 for the Jazz. Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who hit the game-winner against Boston on Thursday, scored 19 points and rookie Sebastian Telfair added a career-high 13 off the bench for Portland.
