Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The New Orleans Hornets snapped a dismal stretch with a win in Salt Lake City in late November, surprising the Utah Jazz. Their return visit was not nearly as successful. Carlos Boozer scored 18 points to lead seven players in double figures as the Jazz rolled to a 108-92 win over the Hornets to snap a three-game losing streak. New Orleans had a very different roster when it snapped a season-opening eight-game losing streak with a 76-75 triumph here November 22. The Hornets held Boozer to eight points in that contest. Boozer gave the Hornets no chance the second time around, scoring six points during a 16-4 run in the second quarter that left Utah with a 49-33 lead. Andrei Kirilenko added a dunk and Raul Lopez two free throws as the Jazz led 53-37 at the break. "We got off to a good start," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "I thought we played hard. We've been playing hard, for the most part, these last three games." "Obviously, they were missing a couple of players from last time," Jazz guard Raja Bell said. "But I think we did a good job trying to play unselfishly tonight. A lot of guys scored, a lot of guys had three or four assists, and we were helping each other get open. When you play like that, you can score a lot of points." Utah matched its best scoring output since January 12 when it defeated Phoenix, 115-108. Boozer had a layup just over two minutes into the second half and was 8-of-8 at that point. He was held scoreless in limited minutes thereafter but got plenty of support in a balanced attack. Kirilenko and Matt Harpring scored 17 points apiece and Bell added 16 for the Jazz, who beat the Hornets for just the second time in their last seven meetings. "(We were) much better," Kirilenko said. "Even though it's not the greatest team in the NBA, we actually lost one to them (earlier). But we need this kind of win, just for the feeling, to start feeling like we can win games and get our confidence back." Utah led by double figures for the entire second half, but the Hornets started chipping away late in the third, cutting a 17-point deficit down to 10 with 2:23 left in the period. The Jazz, who have made a habit of blowing late leads in recent weeks, didn't let it happen this time as Bell helped ignite a 22-4 run bridging the third and fourth quarters to put Utah up by 28, its largest lead of the game. "I think we did a good job staying really aggressive. We were crashing the offensive glass and trying to execute our defensive game plan," said Bell, who had seven points and a pair of steals during the run. "We did let our guard down for a minute, but we did a good job bouncing back from that and staying aggressive." "After all those games that we had blown leads, I think maybe we might be maturing," Boozer said. "Hopefully, it might be a sign of maturing down the stretch. When a team makes a run at us, we can gather the troops and go right back at them, and that's what I feel like we did tonight." That burst was highlighted by eight straight points to end the period, capped by Mehmet Okur's follow shot at the buzzer that put Utah ahead, 83-63. The Jazz' balanced attack was a welcome relief for Sloan, who has been upset recently with his team's selfish and sloppy offensive play. Utah shot 13-of-16 in the first quarter to take a 30-22 lead. "That's what we talked about the last couple of days, try to push the ball up the floor and try to keep pressure up more with our defense," Sloan said. "We still played a lot of selfish basketball. We should have made a couple extra passes a few times. We've got to do a better job if we're going to try to compete." Just one New Orleans starter, P.J. Brown, was in the starting lineup for both games, but in this one, the Hornets' starters were held to 37 points and had 10 turnovers. Utah's aggressiveness in the paint paid off as they finished 33-of-41 (80 percent) from the line. "In this league, when you're aggressive, you're going to get a lot of calls," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "I'm not complaining about the referees one bit because (the Jazz) were the aggressors, and they deserved the calls they got. When you're going to be passive, you're always going to be on your heels." New Orleans' Bostjan Nachbar came off the bench to score a career-high 21 points and Casey Jacobsen matched a season high with 14, but most of their scoring came late when the Jazz were comfortably ahead.
