Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Michael Dickerson scored 27 points as the Vancouver Grizzlies snapped a five-game losing streak against the struggling Portland Trail Blazers with a 89-87 victory.

Dickerson made 10-of-18 shots from the floor, including 4-of-5 from behind the arc, as Vancouver jumped out to a big lead and never trailed.

"Having played well against Portland in the past, I wanted to come out and play well," Dickerson said. "I just tried to come out and play my game and help my team. We know we're not going to the playoffs so we're just coming out and trying to have some fun and knock some people down."

The Trail Blazers continued to stumble toward the playoffs. Ignoring the pleas of coach Mike Dunleavy, who implored his team to take all opponents seriously after Wednesday's disappointing loss to Houston, Portland lost its second straight to a team playing out the string.

"Bottom line is this isn't a game we're supposed to lose," Blazers guard Damon Stoudamire said. "We're not supposed to lose to Vancouver and we're not supposed to lose to Houston. It was definitely frustrating."

The Blazers are 9-10 since a season-high 11-game winning streak lifted them into a tie with the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers. Portland has fallen 9 1/2 games behind the Lakers, who have clinched home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

"As a team, we're in the worst situation you can be in as far as I'm concerned," Dunleavy said. "Somewhere between complacency and urgency. A team that can start the second half and hold a team to 33 points, yet do what we did in the first half tells me that no matter what we do we're not feeling the urgency. It's a dangerous game."

"We're trying to play well in the latter part of the season and go into the playoffs on a high but right now, with seven games left, I don't know if that's enough to get what we need to win a championship," said Scottie Pippen, who had nine points and nine rebounds. It's obvious we're not playing well enough to beat anybody. We have to find something to motivate us and give us a sense of urgency everytime we touch the court."

The Blazers, who trailed by as many as 20 points late in the second quarter, got within 88-84 on a layup by Stoudamire with 2:29 leff in the final period. But they did not score again until Detlef Scrhempf converted a three-point play with 1.2 seconds left.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim made a free throw with nine seconds remaining for Vancouver.

Rasheed Wallace scored 28 points for Portland, which fell to 13-5 all-time against the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies shot 62 percent (13-of-21) in the first quarter and opened a 32-20 lead. Dickerson scored 10 points in the second quarter as Vancouver led 56-41 at the half. The 15-point cushion marked the largest halftime lead for the Grizzlies this season.

The Blazers still trailed 65-49 early in the third but closed the period with a 20-10 burst to close within 75-69 entering the fourth quarter but could not overcome the huge hole they dug for themselves.

"That was an unbelievable win at this stage in the season," Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. "With a team the quality of Portland and the fact that they had a humiliating loss last night at home, they were coming up here to redeem themselves."

Abdur-Rahim had 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Bibby had 15 points and nine assists and Othella Harrington added 15 and nine rebounds for Vancouver, which shot 50 percent (33-of-66) and hit 16-of-23 free throws.

Steve Smith had 14 points for Portland, which shot 40 percent (34-of-86) and hit all 15 of its free-throw attempts.
