GAME RECAP

Brian Grant scored nine of his 18 points during a huge third-quarter run that lifted the Portland Trail Blazers to a 122-105 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, who failed to move three games over .500 for the first time ever.

The Trail Blazers held a 66-57 halftime lead and opened the third quarter with a 19-4 burst. Grant's fast-break layup capped the run, which gave Portland an 85-61 cushion with 5:38 remaining.

Arvydas Sabonis added 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists and scored seven points in the third to give Portland a 93-74 advantage heading into the final quarter.

"Sabonis was tough for us to defend and he was able to make some great passes," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said.

Kenny Anderson scored 17 of his 24 points in the first half for the Blazers, who have won 10 straight at home against the Timberwolves. Anderson, who handed out seven assists, was 5-of-5 from three-point range in the first half.

"I just needed a good game. ... I wanted to get out there and get back in my rhythm," said Anderson, who missed much of the exhibition season with an ankle injury. "That will help my confidence a little bit. I think our starting five executed well, played great."

Anderson finished 6-of-7 from behind the arc, tying the league high for three-pointers made in a game this season.

"Our offense looks a little different with Kenny in there from the start," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "His ability to break down defenses is very meaningful."

Stephon Marbury and Tom Gugliotta scored 27 points apiece for Minnesota (2-1), which has never been three games over .500 in the nine-year history of the franchise. The Timberwolves are 2-15 all-time in Portland and just 4-29 overall in the series.

Portland's Isaiah Rider started and scored 20 points after being fined $1,000 by the team for missing practice on Monday. He sat out the first two games of the season serving a two-game league suspension for off-season, off-court behavior.

"I was having fun. Any time you play against your old team and do well, it's a great feeling," said Rider, who played his first three NBA seasons with Minnesota. "We showed great effort. They played well at the beginning, but we kept our composure and turned the game around. They panicked."

The Blazers, who shot 58 percent (44-for-76) from the field, outscored Minnesota, 64-41, over the second and third quarters.

"Obviously, we're really pleased with the way we played tonight," Dunleavy said. "We were trading baskets in the first half, but we did a much better job of contesting their shots in the third quarter."

Gugliotta, who grabbed eight rebounds, scored 10 points in the first quarter to lead Minnesota to a 33-29 edge. But Sabonis scored eight points in a 14-2 run early in the second quarter. A free throw by Rasheed Wallace, who scored 16 points, capped the spurt and gave Portland a 47-39 lead with 5:30 left.

Kevin Garnett scored 18 points and Marbury contributed nine assists.

"They (Portland) shot the ball extremely well, they played a great game," Marbury said. "We came out flat in the second half."
