MILWAUKEE - Karl Malone scored 27 points and Jeff Hornacek 20, including nine late in the fourth quarter, leading the Utah Jazz to a 101-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks Sunday night, Utah's team-record eighth consecutive road win.

The Jazz, playing their fourth game in five nights, won their fifth straight game overall and sixth in a row against the Bucks.

Todd Day led Milwaukee with 23 points, Eric Murdock had 19 and Glenn Robinson 18. The Bucks haven't beat the Jazz since Jan. 8, 1992.

Utah took a 98-94 lead with 59.4 seconds remaining on Malone's two free throws and Hornacek's 3-pointer.

John Stockton made one of two free throws with 24 seconds to go to give the Jazz a 101-98 lead.

The Bucks missed three 3-point attempts in the final seconds, two by Robinson and one by Johnny Newman.

Robinson had eight points and Murdock seven in a 17-4 run at the beginning of the fourth quarter as the Bucks took a 88-83 lead with 5:53 remaining.

Malone and Hornacek combined for the next seven points and Hornacek's technical free throw gave the Jazz a 90-88 lead with 4:01 left.

Malone's three-point play and breakaway dunk capped a 9-0 run at the start of the third quarter as the Jazz went up 58-52. Malone had 11 points and three steals in the quarter. Utah led 79-71 going into the fourth after holding Milwaukee to 23.5 percent shooting (4 of 17).

The Bucks, averaging 5 blocks a game, swatted away six shots by the Jazz in the first quarter, including four by Alton Lister. Milwaukee made 7 of its first 8 shots and took a 24-13 lead behind Day, who had 12 first-quarter points.

Antoine Carr came off the bench and made all five of his shots in the second quarter, including a basket with 5:09 left, giving the Jazz a 42-40 lead.

The Bucks led 52-49 at the break by outscoring the Jazz 5-0 in the final 1:27 of the half.

Knicks waive Rivers

NEW YORK - The New York Knicks' muddled backcourt situation became clearer Thursday when the team waived 12-year veteran Doc Rivers.

Rivers, 33, had played substantially the last two games while Greg Anthony sat on the bench as questions swirled about which of New York's three backup point guards would be the odd man out.
