Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Greg Anthony sank a pair of 3-pointers and Detlef Schrempf had four points as the Portland Trail Blazers scored 15 straight points in the fourth quarter to pull away from the Washington Wizards, 102-86.

Less than 24 hours after snapping their three-game losing streak, the Trail Blazers raced to a huge lead at the half and responded when the Wizards drew close in the fourth.

A basket by Juwan Howard got Washington to within 76-69 with just over 10 minutes left when Anthony and Schrempf combined for 10 points in a 15-0 run that salted the game away.

Damon Stoudamire led Portland with 16 points and Greg Anthony and Arvydas Sabonis added 15 apiece.

"That's a very good basketball team," Wizards coach Darrell Walker said. "Very deep, very talented. I didn't know if I should be worried about the first unit or the second unit. ... They should be in the finals, or close to it -- one of the two."

Mitch Richmond had 18 points and Tracy Murray 17 for the Wizards, who have lost 13 of 18.

"They just came out there and pretty much dominated the game right from the start," Murray said. "We got back into it, but they still had control of the game. It's almost like they have a switch to turn it on, turn it off."

The game marked just the second sellout of the season for the Wizards.

Portland raced to a 10-0 lead in the opening four minutes as the Wizards missed their first seven field-goal attempts before Richmond hit a jumper with 7:53 left in the first quarter. After one period, the Trailblazers led 27-17.

"We started off on the wrong foot," said Richmond. "They jumped out on us, and we really couldn't come back."

"We just couldn't make shots," said Wizards guard Rod Strickland. "If you don't make shots, you're not going to win."

While the Trail Blazers were cruising, the Wizards trimmed the deficit to 76-69 on a jumper by Howard with 10:05 left in the game. Then Portland went on a 15-0 run highlight by a pair of 3-pointers by Anthony and a couple of jumpers by Schrempf.

"They went on a 3-point barrage that just put it away," Murray said. "They were raining threes from all over the place, and there was nothing we could do about it. Everytime we went to box out, we were taking the ball out of the net from another three. That will blow a game open in a minute."

"That run in the fourth quarter just killed us," added Richmond. "They've got a great team. They go 12 deep, sometimes 14. They've got two guys on the injured list. Once you get behind against a team like that, it's hard to get back in the game. We cut it to seven and thought we had an opportunity, but our shots wouldn't fall in the fourth quarter."

Howard scored 14 points on 6-for-15 shooting while Aaron Williams had a double-double 10 points and 10 rebounds.

"You're not going to have any post game against Rasheed Wallace and Scottie Pippen," Walker said. "I think people need to talk about putting Rasheed on the All-Defensive Team."

Wallace, a former Wizard, enjoyed this return to Washington.

"We were out there hoopin' it," Wallace said. "It was a confidence thing for ourselves. We knew they were going to come out hard, we just had to try and slow them down. Our main focus is to get into the playoffs with everybody healthy."
