JAZZ AT HORNETSFriday, March 19 Charlotte's Derrick Coleman once called Utah's Karl Malone an Uncle Tom, which may explain why Malone regularly goes postal on DC. In 10 head-to-head matchups, all Jazz victories, Malone has averaged 26.6 points (on 52.2% shooting) and 11.2 rebounds while Coleman has averaged 14.7 points (on 34.8% shooting) and 10.8 boards. Perhaps not coincidentally, Coleman has sat out five of his team's last II meetings with the Jazz because of a variety of ailments. If Coleman isn't on the court for the opening tip on Friday, look for him under the trainer's table.
