LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Charles Barkley scored 35 points and the Philadelphia 76ers survived a furious fourth-quarter rally to defeat the Utah Jazz 102-95 Tuesday night in an NBA exhibition game.

Barkley, who had 31 points through three quarters, came off the bench with 3:27 to play after the Jazz had gone on an 18-7 run and cut a 12-point deficit to 94-93.

He made two free throws and finished off the Jazz with a reverse slam dunk to put the Sixers up by seven points in the waning moments.

Karl Malone led Utah, which remained winless in the preseason at 0-5, with 26 points. John Stockton and Jeff Malone each had 21.

For Philadelphia (3-2), Hersey Hawkins scored 16 points and Johnny Dawkins 14.
