Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Arvydas Sabonis scored 24 points and Jim Jackson added 17 as the Portland Trail Blazers earned their first win of the season with a 95-76 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Sabonis scored 13 points in the second half, when the Trail Blazers outscored the Grizzies, 48-29. Vancouver ended the second quarter with a 12-4 run to pull into a 47-47 tie, but managed only 10 points in the third period.

"Our main problem was that we weren't making the extra pass and it hurt us and let the Grizzlies into the game," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "In the third quarter, our defense was quite strong and we started finishing on our breaks. That was the difference."

Portland rebounded from Sunday's 91-88 season-opening loss at Seattle in which it squandered a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter. Tonight, the Trail Blazers put the game away with a 14-1 run late in the third quarter, opening a 65-52 lead on Sabonis' free throw with 1:56 left in the period.

Sabonis was 7-of-12 from the field and 10-of-16 from the foul line, in addition to grabbing 12 rebounds.

Damon Stoudamire added nine points and eight assists for the Trail Blazers, who outscored the Grizzlies 50-32 in the paint. Portland also had a 20-8 edge in fastbreak points.

Tony Massenburg had 24 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 14 for the Grizzlies, who set a franchise record by shooting just 12.5 percent (3-of-24) from the field in the third quarter. The previous record low for a quarter was 13.3 percent.

"We said to ourselves at the half we have to make a conscious effort to play better at the start of the third quarter," Abdur-Rahim said. "We came out and didn't play together at all. It was all individuals."

Massenburg set team marks for most consecutive field goals and most consecutive field goals made at the start of a game.

After shooting 4-of-4 in Sunday's 109-87 loss to Sacramento, he made his first nine shots against Portland, giving him a 13-of-13 streak to start the season. But Massenburg missed all six of his shots in the second half, scoring just four points.

"I can't be all that happy with the performance I had," Massenburg said. "When you lose, it takes away from it. I would have much rather won, but we didn't play well enough in the second half."

"I don't think I prepared very well for Massenburg," Sabonis added. "We started playing much harder defense in the second half and then moved the ball better on offense for good open shots."

Portland opened its biggest lead at 95-74 on Bonzi Wells' layup with 8.5 seconds remaining.

"When you take the scoring from Abdur-Rahim and then if Tony's doesn't hit any more shots, they don't have a third scorer out there," Jackson said. "We denied the open shots for everyone and they couldn't bring anybody else to beat us."

Tony Mack added 11 points for Vancouver, which committed 20 turnovers and shot just 33 percent (27-of-81).

Rookie Mike Bibby had just three points on 1-of-12 shooting and is a combined 4-of-26 in his first two NBA games. He scored 11 points against Sacramento, but was just 3-of-14 from the field.

Portand grabbed a 43-35 lead on Brian Grant's three-pointer with 5:18 left in the first half, but Vancouver rallied to take a 47-45 lead on Mack's three-pointer with nine seconds left in the half. Sabonis hit two free throws with one second remaining to tie it and the Trail Blazers took control in the third quarter.

"We didn't respond to their intensity," Massenburg said. "They realized it wasn't going to a cakewalk in the first half. They turned it up and we didn't. We made a lot of mistakes, turning over the ball and taking bad shots. The next thing you know we're out of the game."
