Do you remember the 1990-1991 NBA season? It was the year right before our first Western Conference Championship series, so maybe not. Anyway, this guy does, and writes about (among other games) the Jazz' first two games of the regular season -- which were against the Phoenix Suns and played in Tokyo, Japan! Check it out here!
For the record in that back-to-back set Karl Malone averaged 31.0 ppg (15 FTA per game!), 12.0 rpg, 3.5 apg, 0.5 spg and 0.5 bpg. Which, you may remember, is pretty indicative of by how large the order of magnitude Karl was greater than Carlos actually was/is.
Btw . . . in that picture . . . yes, that's a young Jerry Sloan near Karl's bent knee and a young Phil Johnson (white guy with moustache) in the lower left corner in the image. The third coach could be Gordon Chiesa, but I could be wrong . . . I'm just guessing, as it doesn't look like Gordon at all.
