Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Rasheed Wallace was ejected again and took the Portland Trail Blazers' inside game with him. But Bonzi Wells picked up the slack.

Wells nailed a pair of 3-pointers during a key second-half spurt as the Trail Blazers completed their first season sweep of the Seattle SuperSonics in nine years with a 95-82 victory.

Wells and Detlef Schrempf each scored 16 points off the bench for Portland, which never trailed after the first quarter en route to its third straight win. The Blazers were 4-0 against Seattle, sweeping the season series for the first time since 1990-91.

Wallace had only one point before picking up a pair of technicals early in the second quarter for his sixth ejection of the season. Center Arvydas Sabonis is injured and starting forward Jermaine O'Neal managed only four in 18 minutes as Portland was outscored in the paint, 46-32, and managed only two second-chance points.

"We have an advantage on the frontline which was hindered tonight when Rasheed Wallace was ejected," reserve point guard Greg Anthony said. "We still have a lot of guys we can count on down low. We made the all shots we needed at the right times, and it is a solid win for us."

"He's a big part of our team, especially on the low post," guard Steve Smith said of Wallace, who set an NBA record with his 33rd and 34th technicals. "Defensively, he brings a presence, so everybody had to step up. Detlef did a great job, Brian (Grant) did a great job and even the guys who don't play much, like Stacey (Augmon), did a great job for us."

The SuperSonics closed within 67-63 early in the final period before Wells connected twice from beyond the arc. His second 3-pointer capped the 12-4 run and gave the Blazers a 79-67 lead with 8:07 to play.

"We lost Rasheed early and guys got to know who is going to step up, and everybody said, `I am going to step up,'" Wells said. "And that's what a great team is all about -- everybody doing their part and making the team better."

Smith led Portland with 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting and Scottie Pippen added 18 points and seven rebounds.

"Probably the difference between the way we have been playing the last two games and the way we were playing earlier is we are much more aggressive on our defense," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "If there was one thing we were lacking during our spell, it was defensive intensity."

Gary Payton nearly had a triple-double with 21 points, 11 assists and seven boards, but Seattle has lost six of its last seven games and fell 1 1/2 games behind Sacramento for seventh place in the Western Conference.

"We played hard but not particularly well," Sonics coach Paul Westphal said. "Losing Rasheed didn't hurt them. They always step it up when they lose players. Don't worry about Portland. They have plenty of players. We had good chances in the first half and couldn't exploit them. And we had to play the way Portland wanted us to play in the second half."

Seattle got no closer than eight points after Wells' 3-pointer capped the 12-4 outburst.

Rashard Lewis had 18 points off the bench on 8-of-16 shooting and gave the Sonics an early 16-9 lead with a 3-pointer midway through the first quarter. But Pippen's 3-pointer in the final minute of the period put the Blazers ahead for good, 19-18.

Wells had eight points in the second quarter, helping Portland extend the lead to 45-43 at halftime. The margin grew to 67-61 entering the final period.

Schrempf also had eight rebounds and Pippen, Smith and Grant added seven apiece for the Blazers, who shot 41 percent (33-of-80) but made 24-of-30 free throws compared to 14-of-26 by the Sonics.

"Our missing 12 free throws was catastrophic," Westphal said. "We didn't do a job on the boards in the second half and we continued to turn the ball over too much."
