Maybe, Jeff Malone was afraid he was in danger of losing his job as the shooting guard for the Washington Bullets to red-hot Leon Wood. As Wood, the former Cal State Fullerton star, finally cooled off, Malone put on a display of shooting Sunday at Landover, Md., to lead the Bullets to a 112-98 victory over the Chicago Bulls. After shooting better than 50% in his first five games as a Bullet, Wood was 0-for-8 against the Bulls. Malone easily took up the slack.

Jeff Malone's 18-foot shot from the corner with 12 seconds to play squelched a remarkable rally by the Denver Nuggets and gave the Utah Jazz a 96-95 victory Tuesday night at Denver. The Jazz led in the final minute, 94-86, but Rodney Rogers made three three-point baskets in 8.8 seconds, giving the Nuggets a 95-94 lead with 20 seconds remaining. Denver stole two inbounds passes by Karl Malone, leading to the second and third of Rogers' three-pointers.

It's simple math, really: Malone to the second power. Karl Malone is the All-NBA power forward who glides the court like a guard. Jeff Malone is the veteran shooting guard the Utah Jazz acquired from the Washington Bullets in the off-season to give outside support to the mostly inside game of his namesake. Their chemistry offers problems too tough for NBA scientists to solve.

The Clippers managed to lose to the Washington Bullets, 101-96, on a night when Moses Malone didn't score a basket. They managed this difficult feat Wednesday night before a crowd of 6,852 at the Sports Arena, failing to maintain a 74-69 lead in the third quarter. "I'm not disappointed; I'm mad because we had so many opportunities to win," Clipper rookie swingman Reggie Williams said.

A three-way NBA deal Monday began with the Washington Bullets trading guard Jeff Malone and a draft pick to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for center Pervis Ellison. The Kings then traded Malone and a draft pick to the Utah Jazz for Bobby Hansen, Eric Leckner and two draft picks. The Kings received a second-round pick in 1991 from the Bullets and the two choices from the Jazz are in Wednesday's draft--the 23rd, a first-rounder, and 49th.

The Utah Jazz signed guard Jeff Malone, the team's No. 2 scorer, to a five-year contract reportedly worth about $2 million a year. Malone earned $916,000 last year and became a restricted free agent at the end of last season. If he had accepted an offer from another NBA team, the Jazz would have had the opportunity to match it. Malone, 30, averaged 18.6 points a game on 50.

Karl Malone was furious. And when a man with biceps the size of Malone's is angry, you'd better take cover. Angry after being called for a questionable foul on Clipper center James Edwards late in the third quarter of Sunday's NBA playoff game against the Clippers, Malone took out his frustration by pounding his fist on a padded press table, destroying a TV microphone. Malone, who drew a technical foul, will gladly pay the automatic $100 fine.

Michael Adams was light-headed because of flu, but that didn't prevent him from making two three-pointers during a fourth-quarter surge to lead the Washington Bullets past the New Jersey Nets, 97-92, at Landover, Md., on Monday night. The Bullets, already without injured center Pervis Ellison, had to play without rookie Tom Gugliotta and guard Rex Chapman, both of whom also had flu. Adams scored 22 points in 39 minutes. "I was a little light-headed . . .

Bouncing back from one of the worst performances of his career, Karl Malone beat up on the worst team in the league. Malone poured in 36 points Monday night at Dallas as the Utah Jazz cruised to a 109-96 victory over the Mavericks, extending the Mavericks' club-record losing streak to 19 games. If the Mavericks lose to Orlando at Dallas Wednesday night, they will tie the NBA record for consecutive defeats in one season held by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers.

It would be hard enough for the Utah Jazz to beat the streaking Houston Rockets at full strength. But without Karl Malone, forget it. Malone was ejected from Saturday night's game in Houston with 9:15 left to play for cursing at official Jack Madden after a foul was called on Utah's Larry Krystkowiak. The Jazz was ahead by a point at the time, but the Rockets immediately took the lead and went on to take the win, 104-95, for their 13th consecutive victory and 26th in their last 31 games.

With 32 seconds to play in the first half at the Delta Center on Saturday night, Utah Coach Jerry Sloan was ejected for consecutive technicals. Maybe it was motivation for the Jazz. Or maybe it was simply a good time to disappear. "I don't know if any coach wants to get kicked out of a game," said his Clipper counterpart, Larry Brown. "Unless it was me in the last five minutes." By then, the game had taken a dramatic turn.
