Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Arvydas Sabonis hit a layup with 9.8 seconds left as the Portland Trail Blazers blew a 21-point lead but came back to post their sixth straight win, an 88-86 triumph over the Phoenix Suns.

Brian Grant rebounded a miss by teammate Jim Jackson and passed to Sabonis under the basket. Sabonis reached up and calmly laid it in with the right hand to give Portland a two-point lead.

"I saw it coming off long," Grant said. "I tried to get it and take it to the hole. I saw Sabonis cutting and I dished it because I knew he'd put it in."

Phoenix had a chance to tie, but Tom Gugliotta's shot at the buzzer, off a poor pass from Jason Kidd, fell well short as he was challenged by Rasheed Wallace.

Sabonis, Damon Stoudamire and Isaiah Rider finished with 18 points apiece to lead Portland to its ninth win in the last 12 meetings with the Suns. Grant grabbed 14 rebounds and Sabonis pulled down 13 helping the Blazers post their fifth victory in their last six trips to Phoenix.

After shooting 39 percent (27-of-69) over the first three quarters, Phoenix made half of its 16 shots in the final period.

Gugliotta paced the Suns with 18 points and rookie Pat Garrity added a career-high 14 but Phoenix suffered its third straight loss.

Portland raced to a 19-6 lead just under seven minutes into the game as Jackson led the way with seven points and Sabonis added six. The Trail Blazers also closed the first quarter with strong, scoring 11 of the final 13 points. Stoudamire drilled a pair of 3-pointers during that spurt and finished the period with 12 points, helping Portland build a 32-11 lead.

"In the first quarter, I was getting open looks," Stoudamire said. "The past three or four games I have been working on my shot. It's back. When I hit the shots like I normally can, that opens up our game even more."

The 11 points tied a Suns record for fewest points in one period at America West Arena. It was also a season-low for Phoenix in any quarter.

"The biggest thing is that we can't get down 32-11," Kidd said. "It doesn't matter who we are playing, espcially the best team in the league. It's awful hard to win a game when you start out like that."

The Blazers connected on 68 percent (13-of-19) of their shots in the first quarter while holding Phoenix to 22 percent (5-of-23).

The Suns used a 13-5 spurt to close the first half and pulled within 52-41 at intermission. Phoenix coach Danny Ainge inserted Garrity into the lineup and he responded with 12 points in the second quarter.

"I was just glad to have the opportunity to play that much," Garrity said. "I know they are not going to run plays for me, but I was happy to do what I could."

The Suns scored the first eight points of the second half and pulled within 52-49 as Gugliotta and Luc Longley netted four points apiece. But Stoudamire scored six of the final eight points of the third quarter, giving the Blazers a 67-60 edge.

Phoenix opened the fourth quarter with a 10-3 burst and tied the game at 70-70 with 8:32 remaining.
