Utah came in on top 2 games to one in the best of five series. And give the Jazz credit for going all out. Watch Karl Malone make the save, leap and then walk the plank on press row. But Malone and the Jazz have had to play catchup all night thanks to the "Glove" Gary Payton.
[SUPER=32-Utah/93/Seattle/101/Game Four;]

The Jazz lose to the Sonics 101 to 93.

Moore is excited about playing in Buffalo because the Bills are one of only a handful of teams that still use a four linebacker set. And he knows he'll be expected to produce like former Bill and Hokie Bruce Smith did in Buffalo.
