I think they can win, IF they play physical (especially on Dirk-They might need a lot of fouls to do so, but they've got to affect his game). Defense will be key if they can pull it off.

I hope they are ready to play. Dallas will school them, otherwise.

I'd really appreciate a good defensive effort from AK47. Hasn't happened in quite a while.

Well... you called that one. That was a bloodbath out there. I actually felt bad for the Mavs cuz we may have marred them for the season. Ha - i guarantee people are gonna start saying the Jazz are dirty again. Last time I heard that was during the Finals runs. We were pretty good back then... so if we're "dirty" again... we must be doing something right!!

We still have three more games against them (don't we?). They'll come back with a vengeance unless we keep up the physical play.

Utah 101, Dallas 79

SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 11 (AP) -- As much as he wanted to treat it like any other victory, Jerry Sloan had to suffer through a little adulation after the Utah Jazz gave him his 1,000th win as an NBA coach.

Jazz fans saluted Sloan with a chant of ``Jer-ry! Jer-ry!'' for the final two minutes, then a standing ovation at the end of Utah's 101-79 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.

``That's better than hearing them boo me. I've had a few of those over the years,'' Sloan said. ``The most important thing is they were having fun because our team was playing well and I think they enjoyed that.''

After the buzzer, Sloan quietly shook hands with his players and assistant coaches, then started toward the locker room as if it were any other victory. He had to stop for a few moments as Dallas coach Avery Johnson walked all the way down the floor for one more handshake.

``He's been doing it for a long time and I went over to congratulate him. He deserves it,'' said Johnson, who has 90 wins in his short coaching career. ``He's been one of the most consistent coaches in the history of our game.''

Carlos Boozer led Utah with 31 points and 11 rebounds. He said after the game the Jazz players all signed the ball, then presented it to Sloan - whether he wanted it or not.

``That's how Coach is. Coach is one of those guys that's the same guy every day. He's not going to celebrate a big win,'' Boozer said. ``That's not who he is. He has bigger goals in mind.''

Sloan is the fifth coach to win 1,000 games. It was much more important to him that the Jazz (16-5) kept the NBA's best record and beat the defending Western Conference champion Mavericks.

``I'm glad it's behind us and now we can play basketball,'' said Sloan, who is 1,000-663 as a coach.

Deron Williams finished with 15 points and seven assists for Utah and Andrei Kirilenko had four blocks and six assists to go with his 10 points. Matt Harpring added 15 points and eight rebounds.

Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 26 points and 11 rebounds. No one else approached double figures on the boards for the Mavericks, who were outrebounded 42-26.

``They really got the best of us at both ends of the floor,'' Nowitzki said. ``In the third and the fourth, we couldn't really get it down to 10, eight, to make it a ballgame. You've got to give them the credit.''

Dallas has lost three of five since its 12-game winning streak.

The Mavericks had won seven of their last eight game against the Jazz, but never held a lead in their first meeting this season.

Dallas shot 26-for-69 from the field. Anthony Johnson was the only Maverick other than Nowitzki to score in double figures with 10 points.

The Mavericks made a brief push by hitting their first four shots of the third quarter, cutting Utah's 51-39 lead to 55-47 on a shot in the lane by Josh Howard.

Dallas got within 65-54 on a 3-pointer by Johnson as the shot clock expired, but the Jazz answered with a 10-2 run. Kirilenko drove around Devean George for a layup, then dunked over DeSagana Diop off an inbounds pass to put the Jazz ahead 69-54.

Utah led 75-63 at the end of the third quarter and Williams opened the fourth with a 3-pointer to start a 13-2 run for the Jazz.

Boozer converted a three-point play that put Utah up 85-65, then hit an 18-foot jumper to make the lead 22 with 8:07 left. Mehmet Okur added a free throw before Maurice Ager hit Dallas' second field goal of the quarter. Only 6:19 remained and the Mavs had already pulled their starters.

Nowitzki and the other four starters were on the bench at the end to hear Utah fans celebrate Sloan's milestone.

``That's awesome,'' Nowitzki said, shaking his head. ``I'm not really happy that we got to be a part of it, but he meant so much to this league. He always gets the best out of his players.''

Notes: The Jazz had 24 assists to eight for Dallas. ... George and Avery Johnson received technicals at the end of the third for complaining after Utah kept possession when the ball was knocked out of bounds. Kirilenko made both free throws to put Utah ahead 75-59. ... Fisher and Nowitzki received technicals after colliding in the first half. Utah assistant Phil Johnson got a technical a few seconds later.
