Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Every once in a while, Isaiah Rider shows everyone how good he can be.

Working mainly against star guard Reggie Miller, Rider scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 100-92 victory over the Indiana Pacers in their home opener.

Rider, whose career has been marred by inconsistency, a poor attitude and off-court troubles, was averaging just 10.5 points and 4.5 rebounds entering tonight's contest.

The Blazers trailed 15-9 midway through the first quarter but Rider drained a five-foot jumper to cap a 10-2 run which gave Portland the lead for good, 19-17, with 2:13 left.

"J.R. played with a lot of energy," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I told him he had to take his shots and he came back with a lot of energy."

"I guess Mike thinks I'm tired sometimes," added Rider. "I got a chance to sit down after I missed two shots and I guess I calmed down by seeing the game from the bench. I came back in, took my time and kind of went towards them."

Damon Stoudamire scored 23 points and handed out nine assists for the Blazers (2-1), who made half their 76 shots in avenging an embarrassing 124-59 dismantling at the hands of Indiana last February. It was both the second-lowest point total and second-largest margin of defeat in NBA history.

"Obviously, we're very pleased," Dunleavy added. "It was a great win for us. We didn't get off to a very good start, but we stayed focused. After we got the lead, they made that expected run against us and we held the fort."

"Tonight was a team effort," said Stoudamire. "I think when the game first started, Indiana got a lot of good looks. They were pounding us on the glass, especially offensively. But as the game went on, we kind of seemed to wear them down a little bit."

Rik Smits scored 23 points, Travis Best collected 20 and Jalen Rose added 13 for the Pacers (2-2), who shot 45 percent (35-of-78) and committed 20 turnovers.

Miller had a rough night, making just 3-of-9 shots for 12 points. He missed a 3-pointer with 39 seconds left that could have pulled Indiana within three. Miller quickly fouled Walt Williams, who sank a pair of foul shots to give Portland a 96-88 cushion with 38 seconds remaining.

A frustrated Miller, whose team has split its first four games after being touted as the early-season favorite out of the Eastern Conference, tore into an official and was ejected.

"Technicals are technicals," said Miller. "With the inconsistent play, you're going to get inconsistent refereeing and tonight it was our turn for inconsistent refereeing. They're keeping players off balance and the game is sometimes getting out of control, as in tonight. They can't get control of the game and that's not our job, that's their job. They were locked out too and they're getting back in shape as well as we are."

Smits was 11-of-17 from the field and thoroughly outplayed Portland center Arvydas Sabonis, who managed just seven points on 3-of-9 shooting.

"They got stops when they needed them," Smits said. "They got big baskets when they needed them and we just seemed to be doing one thing at a time."

Williams scored 14 points and Rasheed Wallace added 10 for the Blazers, who were outrebounded, 39-35.

Rose hit a lane jumper with 1:20 remaining that pulled Indiana within 92-88, capping a 9-1 run. But Brian Grant made a pair of free throws with 44 seconds to play before Miller missed his crucial 3-pointer.

The Pacers still have stops in Vancouver and Los Angeles before completing their season-high five-game road trip.

"We could score points, but it was like playing horse out there," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "The problem for us was at the defensive end. We dug too big a hole. Portland made runs, they had four good runs that hurt us and we only had two."

The Blazers have three days off before their next contest at Golden State on Sunday.
