GAME RECAP

Arvydas Sabonis scored 28 points, including the go-ahead dunk with 7.1 seconds left, and grabbed 20 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers held off a furious late charge and posted their 11th straight home win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, 95-92.

Stephon Marbury's lay-in with 22 seconds to play capped a 13-point comeback over the final 3:26 and gave the Wolves a 92-91 lead. But Sabonis ended his huge effort with a follow dunk of a blocked shot and Isaiah Rider sank two free throws with a second remaining. Marbury's three-point attempt at the buzzer bounced off the front of the rim.

Rasheed Wallace's quickness played a crucial part in the victory. After Sabonis put back Kevin Garnett's rejection of Rider's wild shot, Wallace stole the inbounds, leading to Rider's free throws.

"I was going to shoot the little jumper, but I wanted to get closer, because my jumper wasn't falling," Rider said. "I tried to go in and draw some contact, I thought I got fouled. That's why I turned my body and threw that shot up like that. 'Sabas' got it back and put it in. That was a huge play for us."

"We had a timeout left," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "We told our guys that we had a lot time left (on the stolen inbounds), that we weren't going to call one. It wasn't Kevin's fault throwing it in, but do you call it (a timeout) or not call it? We probably should gave done a better job of knowing the time. Rasheed made a great play and they took advantage of it."

Sabonis hit 9-of-13 shots and matched a career high in rebounds that he established earlier this season. Rider and Wallace finished with 15 points apiece for the Blazers, who improved to 31-5 all-time against Minnesota.

Portland hit 41 percent (35-of-86) of its shots and held a 51-41 rebounding edge over the Wolves. It was the 10th time this season that the Trail Blazers grabbed 50 or more rebounds in a contest.

It was the 29th double-double of the season for Sabonis, whose second 20-point, 20-rebound effort in seven games was also the second of his career.

"I don't know how they got so far up on us," Garnett said. "I didn't play particularly well tonight, but as a team we played together. We made a run at the end and stuff happened. Sabonis makes it hard with the stuff he's able to do."

Sam Mitchell collected 21 points and nine rebounds and Terry Porter, who drained a pair of three-pointers in the last 2 1/2 minutes, added 16 points for the Wolves, who lost for the seventh time in 10 games.

"That was a tough way to lose," said Porter. "The ball just bounced right for them in that situation. It just didn't work out for us tonight. They didn't let up, we just made shots and some big threes. Steph (Marbury) stepped it up for us in the end."

Sabonis recorded 15 of his points in the first half to lead the Blazers to a 46-39 edge at the break. Portland made its move in the third quarter, rattling off the first nine points and taking a 55-39 advantage on a three-pointer by Rider with 9:38 to go.

The Wolves fought back and cut the deficit to 63-58 on a basket by Porter, but the Blazers went on to lead by as many as 16 points in the quarter.

In the fourth quarter, consecutive three-pointers by Rider and Rick Brunson -- who had 12 points -- created an 84-71 Portland advantage with 3:26 to go. The Wolves answered with the longball, closing the gap on two straight three-pointers by Porter followed by Mitchell's shot from behind the arc.

Anthony Peeler had 16 points, Garnett 15 and Marbury 12 for the Wolves, who shot 20-of-24 from the free throw line but just 39 percent (34-of-86) from the floor.
