Jordan Shines in OT To Sink San Antonio

CHICAGO -- Michael Jordan rescued the Chicago Bulls again.


He hit a 3-pointer to force overtime Monday, made a tying jumper in the first overtime and scored three of Chicago's final four points in the second extra period as the Bulls outlasted the San Antonio Spurs 87-83.


Jordan, who shot just 12-of-39 from the field, finished with 29 points and 13 rebounds.


San Antonio rookie Tim Duncan also had 22 rebounds along with 19 points. David Robinson had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Spurs.


Chicago led by four in the second overtime but Robinson dunked and Rodman drew a technical foul for lowering his shoulder into his former teammate on the play. Jaren Jackson's free throw cut the lead to one with 2:14 remaining.


The Spurs had a chance for the lead, but Jordan made a steal and Rodman and Ron Harper grabbed offensive rebounds as the Bulls kept the ball before Jordan scored again for an 85-82 lead.


Dennis Rodman had 22 rebounds for the Bulls.


Wizards 90, Jazz 86. In Salt Lake City, Chris Webber scored 26 points and Rod Strickland had 17 points and nine assists as the Washington Wizards snapped Utah's 14-game home winning streak.


Karl Malone led the Jazz with 21 points, but last year's MVP missed three jumpers late in the game as Washington survived a Utah rally.


Both teams are now 1-2.


Malone tied the game at 78 by hitting two free throws with 3:22 left, but Strickland and Calbert Cheaney hit clutch jumpers to seal the victory.


Hornets 112, Heat 99. In Miami, Glen Rice scored 28 points as the Charlotte Hornets won their first game.


The Hornets, who lost their first two games of the season, also got 20 points from David Wesley and 16 points apiece from Matt Geiger and Del Curry.


Jamal Mashburn scored 18 points for Miami, which was bidding for a 3-0 start for only the second time in franchise history.


Shaquille O'Neal was suspended for one game and fined $10,000 Monday for hitting Utah center Greg Ostertag last week between practice sessions.


The suspension means O'Neal will miss Tuesday night's game at Sacramento.
