I don’t appreciate him bringing that on the floor.” But Robinson, held to 17 points in 29 minutes of play, stopped short of blaming officiating for the outcome. That, he said, was more due to Karl Malone, who scored 25 points. “He got his team going early. I wasn’t able to. That was a big part of the game,” Robinson said. The Jazz, who open their next series at Seattle on Saturday, led by 14 at halftime on John Stockton’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer. After three quarters, Utah led 78-61, and the advantage grew to 32 with 1:36 left. All of Utah’s playoff wins against the Spurs — who won the regular-season series 3-1 — were blowouts.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—A fourth blowout loss to Utah had David Robinson frustrated. The officiating left the San Antonio center downright angry. While the Jazz celebrated a 108-81 victory and third trip to the Western Conference finals in five years, Robinson, normally the epitome of sportsmanship, bitterly took on the referees, particularly Steve Javie. The All-Star center was especially upset with his third foul, a charging call just 14 seconds into the second quarter with the Spurs trailing by five points. “I thought that call by Steve Javie was garbage, and I think it - as personal,” Robinson said.
