GAME RECAP

Glen Rice scored 27 points and David Wesley added 13 and nine assists as the Charlotte Hornets used a pair of second-half runs to cool off the red-hot Portland Trail Blazers, 106-92.

Rice and Wesley scored five points apiece in a pivotal 12-1 run midway through the third quarter. With Charlotte leading 60-59 with 7:15 to go, Rice buried a jump shot to ignite a burst of seven straight points.

"We did one of the things we wanted to, which was was come out aggressive," said Rice. "Against Portland you have to be physical. That was another thing I knew we had to do."

After former Hornet Kenny Anderson's free throw brought Portland within 67-60, Rice hit two free throws and Vlade Divac sank a short jumper. Divac finished with 19 points for the Hornets, who broke open the game with a 12-1 spurt to begin the fourth quarter.

Charlotte has won five of its last six games after opening the season with consecutive defeats. It has won four straight home contests and is 5-0 when scoring over 100 points. The Hornets also improved to 6-0 when Rice leads in scoring.

Rasheed Wallace, Arvydas Sabonis and Isaiah Rider scored 18 points apiece for Portland, which had won seven of its last eight but is opening a five-game East Coast trip. The Trail Blazers had won their first four road games.

"This was a tough ballgame for us to lose," said Wallace. "But we are a tough team and will bounce back from this. The Hornets had the homecourt advantage and we will have our chance soon."

"We got down big early," said Trail Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy. "We didn't have a good rhythm and it was just a flat start."

Portland, which had won both of last season's meetings, had won 16 of the first 20 meetings between the teams. The game also featured a shoving match between J.R. Reid and Brian Grant midway through the fourth quarter. Both players were assessed technicals for the incident.

"Last year we didn't beat this team so it was nice to break the ice finally," said Hornets coach Dave Cowens. "We won the battle of the boards. Glen and Dell (Curry) did an excellent job of hitting the threes and our defense was active."

Anthony Mason added nine points, 15 rebounds and six assists for the Hornets, who held a 36-33 advantage on the boards against the much bigger and much more physical Trail Blazers.

"The whole season is a test and we passed this one," said Mason. "Tonight was a game we wanted to win. They were big and strong in each position, but if we dominate the boards, it gives us an honest chance to win games. If we play like this we will win games."

After Rice's jumper gave Charlotte a 62-59 advantage with 6:50 left in the third quarter, Wesley hit a layup and Rice hit a free throw after Anderson was assessed a technical. Wesley buried a running jumper for a 67-59 lead but Anderson hit a free throw to snap the string.

Rice hit two free throws with 5:19 before Divac capped the run with a short jumper. The Hornets maintained a 79-71 lead at the end of three quarters and a red-hot Dell Curry sealed the win by scoring seven of Charlotte's next 11 points. Burying a three-pointer and a pair of jumpers, Curry sparked a run that gave the Hornets a 90-73 lead with 9:12 to play.

Anderson struggled on 2-of-13 shooting but had 10 assists and no turnovers in 31 minutes. Sabonis added eight rebounds, five assists and two blocked shots.
