The Clippers only could manage 17 points in the second period to Utah's 30, thus, beginning the blowout. At intermission, the Jazz held a comfortable 59-4- 6 lead. With the lead, it opened the door for the rookies to come in and show what they had to offer. Billy Donovan, Providence University; Eddie Hughes, Colorado State University; Bart Kofoed out of Kearney State; and Derrick Rowland from Potsdam State all saw considerable minutes in the second half. The veterans also contributed to the cause. Scurry exploded for 14 points in the second half to sink the Clippers' ship. The Jazz had six players score in double figures.

Norris Coleman and Darnell Valentine had 11 and 10 points respectively. Layden was pleased with the play of Scurry and Turpin. "Scurry played sensationally.

Clipper Head Coach Gene Shue wasn't surprised at the outcome of the game. "We looked abojt like thought we would look. We have a whole new group of players and a orand new coach. Everything is new to the players." The game wasn't a complete loss for Coach Shue; he was able to accomplish what he wanted to. "My purpose for these first couple of exhibition games is to see the players and see what players can do what." Without new acquisition Darryl Dawkins or Thurl Bailey in the line up, the Jazz had to rely on their second year men, Karl Malone and Carey Scurry, and third year man, out of Kentucky, Mel Turpin to provide1 the firejxnver for the blowout. Malone had a game high 24 points, Scurry netted 21 and Turpin scored 15 points. Malone played the entire ballgame as if it were the final game of the NBA Championship. "I've been waiting all summer to play against somebody else," said Malone after the game. "I was just really excited, really happy and fired up to get at some new meat (the Clippers)." The crowd of 4,250, expecting an early blowout by the Jazz, got an unexpected surprise, as the score was I excited." One thing for sure, the Jazz did excite the crowd at the Centrum and it does look like good things are in store.
