Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Utah Jazz appeared on the verge of a complete collapse until Andrei Kirilenko flashed his complete game. Kirilenko had 19 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, seven blocks and four steals to lead the surging Jazz to their third straight win, an 85-77 victory over the Washington Wizards. Earlier this season, Kirilenko twice had games where he had at least five in each of the five major statistical categories, a feat that had been done just twice in the previous 10 years. With his team's surprise playoff run hanging in the balance, Kirilenko lived up to his All-Star billing. The Jazz were clinging to a slim 74-71 lead when he sank a 3-pointer with 3:46 to play. "That was luck," Kirilenko said. "In the last three or four games, I've made maybe one. So that was the second one, and it was a big help." Kirilenko immediately made his presence felt on the defensive end, blocking Larry Hughes' layup that led to Gordan Giricek's fast-break layup that gave Utah a 79-71 advantage. "He does everything. He's everywhere," said Giricek, who had 12 points and five boards. "Blocked shots, steals, assists, everything. He's doing a tremendous job for this team. He's a great all-around player and he does his job every night." Etan Thomas made a free throw, but the 6-9 Kirilenko outleaped a pair of Wizards for an offensive rebound and drew a foul. His two free throws made it 81-72 with 2:54 to play, and Washington got no closer than seven points thereafter. The Jazz (37-34) moved one-half game ahead of Denver for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Utah has not missed the postseason since 1983. Kirilenko's fourth-quarter energy ignited the Jazz, who had gotten complacent in the third quarter. "I felt like we would win this game for sure, even in the third quarter, because I didn't see in their eyes that they really wanted to win," Kirilenko said. "(The Wizards) played good, they played pretty hard, but I didn't see that they really wanted it like us." Raja Bell scored 12 points in the second quarter to give Utah a 52-40 halftime lead. But after scoring the first six points of the third period, the the Jazz managed just seven points over the final 10:46 of the quarter and took just a 65-62 lead into the fourth quarter. The sluggish offense finally came to life and the Jazz avoided what could have been a considerable letdown given the stiff competition for the last playoff spot. "We got really casual in what we were doing, and those are things you shouldn't have happen to you," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "You have got give them credit, too, because they didn't go in and lay down. They came right back at us, and they executed their offense pretty well. That's what kept them in the game." The Wizards were without leading scorer Gilbert Arenas, who was nursing a sprained right ankle, and rookie forward Jarvis Hayes, who went on the injured list with a strained hamstring. Washington committed 24 turnovers, including nine from rookie point guard Steve Blake, who filled in for Arenas. "(It was) just carelessness, it wasn't their pressure," said Larry Hughes, who led Washington with 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting. "It's on our part, making bad plays, making bad decisions. It's what we've been doing all year pretty much."
