Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers continued to prove that they may be the league's best team, while the Seattle SuperSonics continued their steady slide into mediocrity.

Coming off his league-leading third suspension, Isaiah Rider paced seven players in double figures with 23 points as the Blazers avenged an opening night loss with a 107-95 victory over slumping Seattle.

Rider, who was suspended for entering the stands in Tuesday's setback at Golden State, was hot early. He was 6-of-6 in the first quarter en route to an 8-of-17 performance from the field.

"I was in a zone," said Rider. "I didn't know I had (13) points in the first quarter. That's how focused I was. I was shooting the ball really good."

Portland (25-6), which dropped a 91-88 decision at Seattle on February 7, have won eight of their last nine games and improved the NBA's best home record to 15-1.

Rasheed Wallace scored 16 points and Arvydas Sabonis added 14 and 12 rebounds for the Blazers, who snapped a five-game losing streak against the Sonics.

"Sabonis was the anchor," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "In the second half we got some great looks off their double team on the low post. He made great passes to cutter and not only did he have seven assists, but often he made the great pass that lead to the pass that scored baskets."

After a 6-0 start under new coach Paul Westphal, Seattle has hit the skids, going 9-16 over the last 25 games. The Sonics (15-16) have sunk below .500 for the first time since they were 23-24 during the 1991-92 season.

Gary Payton scored 27 points and handed out 13 assists for Seattle, which has dropped nine of its last 11 on the road and four of five overall.

Olden Polynice hit a short jumper to pull the Sonics within 79-78 with 10:17 to play but the Blazers responded with a 13-2 run and never looked back.

Sabonis and Augmon made back-to-back layups before Walt Williams drained a 3-pointer to make it 86-80 with 8:02 remaining.

Williams hit a pair of free throws, Wallace sank a 19-footer and Jaren Jackson capped the spurt with a driving layup with 5:12 remaining that gave the Blazers a 92-80 bulge.

Damon Stoudamire collected 12 points and Williams and Augmon added 10 apiece for Portland, which shot 49 percent (40-of-81) and forced 11 fourth-quarter turnovers.

"That's good `D,'" added Rider. "You really have to attribute that to Greg Anthony. Every time we do something like that, it's Greg Anthony at the head of the defense. That's his specialty, that's what he does."

Anthony only had six points, three assists and two steals in 18 minutes, but he did limit Payton to seven fourth-quarter points.

"We used Greg on Payton," added Dunleavy. "He's played Payton a great deal and he knows how he plays."

Brian Grant had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who held a 45-35 advantage on the boards.

Detlef Schrempf scored 22 points and Polynice added 10 and 11 rebounds for the Sonics, who shot 46 percent (37-of-80) and committed 18 turnovers.

Rider may have raised the ire of Westphal and the Sonics in the game's waning moments. Rider was left alone to dribble out the clock, but rather than walk off the floor as time expired, he drove in for an emphatic dunk at the buzzer.

These teams will meet again on Thursday in Seattle.
