GAME RECAP

Brian Grant scored 15 points and Arvydas Sabonis and Alvin Williams added 13 apiece to lead six players in double figures as the Portland Trail Blazers halted the Utah Jazz's six-game winning streak with a 94-77 victory.

Williams, making his first NBA start for injured point guard Kenny Anderson, also grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists for Portland, which avoided its first three-game home losing streak since 1996. Williams comitted just two turnovers.

"It's a big win for us" Williams said. "We players just have confidence in and support each other, and that's good. We had two real hard practices the last two days and I think it showed tonight. Not too many turnovers and we made our foul shots, things we've struggled with in the past."

The Trail Blazers scored more than 93 points for the first time since a 120-75 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on November 17th, a span of eight games.

"What was especially pleasing was the way we followed our details and game plan," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I was especially pleased about the way we rotated on defense and did a great job against one of the best, if not the best, executing team in the NBA."

Karl Malone had 24 points and 12 rebounds to record his fourth straight double-double for Utah, which fell to 14-38 all-time at Portland.

The Blazers went on a 14-2 run early in the second quarter that turned a 27-25 edge with 9:38 left in the session into a 41-27 margin.

During the burst, which began when Rasheed hit a pair of free throws, and culminated with a layup by rookie Kelvin Cato at the 4:31 mark. Grant and Gary Trent each netted four points during the run.

After Howard Eisley hit a jump shot that temporarily halted the onslaught, Portland promptly reeled off the next seven points on three-pointers by Kato and Isaiah Rider and a free throw by Wallace to build its largest lead of the game at 48-29 with 2:06 remaining before halftime.

The Blazers outscored the Jazz 23-13 in the second quarter.

"We had no fire tonight," Malone said. "You wonder why or how, but we need to get ourselves ready to play. I have never seen us as lost as we were in the second quarter. We stunk. Tonight we didn't look like a professional team."

Portland shot 48 percent (33-of-69) from the field, including 3-of-9 from three-point range. Cato blocked eight shots in 19 minutes for the Blazers, who held a 39-34 advantage on the boards.

"As a team, we have size and a lot of guys can be replaced with someone who is just as talented," Cato said. "This year we have let some wins get away from us. But tonight we played physically and mentally tough."

Jeff Hornacek had 18 points and eight assists for the Jazz, who shot 36 percent (27-of-75) and connected on just 2-of-12 three pointers.

"They played us well tonight," Hornacek said. "They hurt us on the boards. It's tough when you aren't scoring. We tried to play off of Karl (Malone) but we couldn't put a run together to make it close. Tonight we just didn't get it done. We had no agressiveness or enthusiam."

Utah was able to draw within 10 points on two occasions in the fourth quarter but couldn't get any closer.

Byron Russell's layup with 3:41 remaining made it 83-73 and Eisley hit a pair of free throws with 3:12 left to make it 85-75 but Portland went on an 11-4 run to close the game.

"They took us out of our offense" Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "They have so many big guys. We did not know where we were half the time. If they had Anderson, it would have been worse. We had no passion for the game tonight. It makes for a long evening. They hurt us every time we tried to come back."
