Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Jimmy Jackson's 20-foot jumper with 39 seconds to go completed a late rally as the Portland Trail Blazers edged the Washington Wizards, 82-81, for their sixth win in seven games.

Signed as a free agent to offer backcourt bench depth, Jackson drew the start when leading scorer Isaiah Rider was suspended one game for leaving the bench during an altercation in Friday's loss at Charlotte.

Jackson made the most of his start, scoring 13 points and making the game-winning shot after taking a pass on the left wing from Damon Stoudamire.

"The play we ran was a pick-and-roll," Jackson said. "Damon penetrated and he had the confidence in me to take the shot. This game for us was all about ball movement. It's an adjustment for me coming off the bench but I'll do what I have to do to help this team win."

"When one guy is not around, you know the other guys are going to pick up the slack," Stoudamire said.

The Trail Blazers got a little lucky in the waning seconds. On the ensuing possession, Wizards guard Rod Strickland penetrated and perfectly set up center Terry Davis, who missed a layup.

Portland rebounded with 27 seconds left and Washington elected not to foul, even though it was out of timeouts. Jackson missed a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down and Brian Grant tipped the ball into a vacant corner. By the time the Wizards ran it down, the game clock practically had expired.

"We wanted to run the clock down because we knew they didn't have any timeouts," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said.

"I'm pretty sure I looked over and (Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff) said, `Don't foul,'" Howard said. "I am so frustrated that I can't pinpoint anything right now. We had this opportunity and we didn't do it."

Grant had 19 points and 18 rebounds and Arvydas Sabonis added 15 and 10 for Portland, which has won its last four visits to Washington. The Blazers improved to 2-1 on their road trip, which concludes Sunday in Minnesota.

"We kept plugging and plugging and we kept in the game," Grant said.

They worked hard and had good chemistry," Dunleavy said. "They believed that they could come back. Our defense got better in the second (half) because we were a little off synch tonight."

Juwan Howard scored 25 points for the Wizards, who have lost three in a row to fall to 2-3 on their six-game homestand.

The Blazers did a good job of containing Washington's backcourt of Strickland and Mitch Richmond. Strickland had 10 points and seven assists but made just 5-of-16 shots. Richmond scored 13 points on just 4-of-10 shooting.

"We couldn't get it done. That's the bottom line," Strickland said. "For me, I'm not getting it done. I'm playing like (crap) and it's very, very frustrating."

"Late in the game, everything is a struggle for us," Richmond said. "We don't get any clean shots. So many things are going wrong late in the game. We're just not flowing right on offense."

Howard's three-point play gave Washington a 79-75 lead with 3:10 remaining before Portland battled back. Grant made a foul shot, Sabonis hit a jumper and Grant was credited with a basket on a questionable goaltending call against Washington's Ben Wallace. That gave the Blazers their first lead since the first quarter at 80-79 with 1:23 remaining.

Howard gave Washington its last lead on a jumper with 59 seconds to go.

"I thought down the stretch we had some opportunities," said Bickerstaff. "We could not score. Our ball movement was good, but it just came down to two (points) we could not score. We have to keep reaching down and get over this hump."

Walt Williams scored 11 points and Rasheed Wallace added nine for Portland, which shot 44 percent (33-of-75) from the field and held a 42-32 rebounding advantage.

Otis Thorpe had 14 points and eight rebounds for the Wizards, who shot 45 percent (32-of-71) and made 16-of-19 free throws.

Davis scored four points in a 9-0 first-quarter run that gave Washington a 20-14 lead. An 11-2 burst, featuring five points from reserve guard Chris Whitney, extended the advantage to 43-33 with 4:16 left in the first half.

Portland cut the deficit to 52-45 at halftime and Sabonis' six points in the third quarter pared it to 65-63 entering the final period.

Wizards guard Calbert Cheaney was hit is the side of the head late in the third quarter and left with blurred vision. He did not return and his status is day-to-day.
