Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal got tired and the Portland Trail Blazers did not.

Wrapping up a five-game road trip, the Trail Blazers conserved their energy wisely and used a big fourth quarter for a 95-91 victory over the Lakers, who were without an exhausted O'Neal for their most important possession.

Steve Smith scored 27 points and backcourt partner Damon Stoudamire added 22 for Portland, which completed a 3-2 road trip and snapped a five-game losing streak in Los Angeles.

"I felt like the guys hung tough and never gave up on the game," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "We got down by 10 at the half, made some more mistakes and they made us pay for them early. At halftime we talked about playing tough and coming out ahd showing the character that we have been showing all year long."

Rasheed Wallace had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Scottie Pippen added 15 points and seven assists for the Trail Blazers, who moved within 2 1/2 games of the first-place Lakers in the Pacific Division.

"We just continued to stay composed and continued to work anc chip away at the lead," Pippen said. "We feel very confident in what our defense can do, especially down the stretch of the game, and we were able to make some big plays and limit them to second shots. We did all the little things right tonight."

Portland outscored Los Angeles, 22-13, in the fourth quarter, limiting the Lakers to 25 percent shooting (6-of-24). Portland got just four points from its bench but kept its starters fresh for the final period.

Kobe Bryant scored 28 points and O'Neal added 17 and 16 rebounds in 47 minutes for the Lakers. O'Neal was fatigued in the final period and had just two points and no rebounds.

"I think we ran out of gas that second half and I'm trying to figure out why, but for whatever reason we just didn't finish that game very well," said Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson.

The superstar 7-2 center, who had seven assists and six blocked shots, passed out of a double-team to Robert Horry, who nailed a 3-pointer to pull the Lakers within 93-91 with 15 seconds to play.

"We played pretty good defense, except for the last nine or 10 possessions," O'Neal said. "We just didn't play good defense down the stretch. They played very well and we just lost concentration on nine or 10 possessions. They rebounded the ball very well and played very well."

The Lakers had a chance to tie or go ahead after Brian Grant missed two foul shots with 14 seconds left. But with O'Neal on the bench, Derek Fisher's shot from behind the arc was an airball missed and Glen Rice knocked the ball out of bounds. Stoudamire sealed the win with a pair of free throws with 4.6 seconds left.

"We had a number of options. We were pretty much looking to get the ball to Glen," Fisher said. "The play got broken up a little bit and Robert ended up swinging the ball to me. You look back on it and wish you can have that one back."

Portland outrebounded Los Angeles, 45-37, as it beat the Lakers for the second time in three meetings this season.

Smith made a free throw with 2:35 left to give the Blazers an 85-84 edge, their first lead since early in the second quarter. Pippen followed with a driving layup to cap a 14-2 run. Bryant responded with a 10-footer to cut the deficit to 87-86 with 1:43 remaining.

Wallace, Pippen and Grant each missed shots but Grant got the ball back after a block by O'Neal and made a layup for an 89-86 lead with 40 seconds left. Smith then blocked a jumper by Rice, broke downcourt and received a pass from Wallace for a dunk and 91-86 lead with 24 seconds to go.

"I went with a guess that he was going to step sideways so I went behind him," Smith said. "I took a gamble because he could have gone under me and got a shot off. I thought I knew what he was going to do. I've seen him for a while and got a hand on it."

Bryant made a running jumper to cut Portland's lead to 91-88 with 18.5 seconds left. But Smith converted two foul shots with 18.1 seconds to go.

Bryant scored 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting in the first half to help the Lakers to a 57-47 lead. Portland opened the third quarter with an 11-2 burst, closing within 59-58 on Stoudamire's layup.
