Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Bonzi Wells scored seven of his 13 points during a decisive fourth-quarter run as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Sacramento Kings, 102-95.

Wells keyed an 11-4 spurt that gave Portland an 88-81 lead with 7:29 left and helped the team keep alive its bid for a 60-win season.

The Trail Blazers are 58-22 with a road game against the lowly Los Angeles Clippers and a home contest with the Denver Nuggets remaining. They have won 60 games once, going 63-19 in 1990-91.

"I have never done this before," said Wells, a second-year pro out of Ball State who played in only seven games last season. "It's all new for me, so 60 wins in my first season will be good for me."

Rasheed Wallace led six players in double figures with 18 points for Portland, which has won the last 11 meetings with Sacramento and nine in a row at home.

"When we play Sacramento, we just try to come out and contain," Blazers point guard Damon Stoudamire said. "Chris Webber is going to do what he does. We feel like if we can hold everybody else down a little bit, we will be fine."

Webber scored 21 points for the Kings, who are tied with Seattle for seventh place in the Western Conference. The team that finishes seventh will avoid the powerful Los Angeles Lakers in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Kings host the SuperSonics on Tuesday, with a win guaranteeing them the seven seed and a first-round meeting with Utah, their first-round opponent last season.

"We're looking forward to our game with Seattle," coach Rick Adelman said. "If we beat the Sonics, we're the seventh seed. At least we have a day to get ready for Seattle."

"It doesn't matter who we play in the playoffs," said Kings point guard Jason Williams, whose team lost a thrilling five-game series to Utah last season. "I think we learned a lot by playing the Jazz last year."

The Blazers, who are 13-11 after an 11-game winning streak, have locked up the third seed and likely will play Minnesota in the first round.

"It was a good win for us," Stoudamire said. "It was important for us to get our rhythm and our focus back. It doesn't matter who we play right now."

Sacramento trailed by as many as 14 points in the second quarter but managed to get even at 77-77 entering the fourth. But Portland scored the first six points of the final period and 11 of the first 15 to put away the game.

Wells began the 11-4 run with a layup for a 79-77 edge. After the Kings closed within 83-81 with 9:09 left, Wells sank a free throw and added a pair of driving layups for an 88-81 lead.

"We always come out on top against these guys," Portland forward Brian Grant said. "They definitely play us hard. It's just more of a finishing thing with them. They just can't finish us off at this point in time."

Portland led by as many as 10 points on a 23-foot jumper by Wallace with 4:12 to play and by at least five points the rest of the way. Wallace had eight points in the fourth quarter and finished with nine rebounds.

"He's a great talent," Sacramento center Vlade Divac said. "If I'm a GM, he's the first player I pick, easy."

Wells hit 6-of-10 shots in just 19 minutes for the Blazers, who shot 90.5 percent from the free-throw line (19-of-21) and 45.5 percent from the field (40-of-88).

Scottie Pippen had 15 points and nine assists and Steve Smith added 15 points for Portland.

Stoudamire had 12 points and eight rebounds and Arvydas Sabonis added 12 and 10 for Portland, which held a 50-42 rebounding advantage.

The Kings committed only eight turnovers but shot just 42 percent (37-of-88), with the starters combining to go 27-of-66. Webber was 8-of-20 from the floor in 45 minutes.

"We tried to throw a lot of guys at Webber," Grant said. "He had a great game. He always has at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. But we came out on top because we can wear him out."

Williams had 15 points and six assists without a turnover for Sacramento, which got 18 points from reserve Predrag Stojakovic and 11 and 14 rebounds from Divac.

Portland led by 14 points twice early in the second quarter and 46-35 with 4:28 left in the half. But Williams hit a pair of 3-pointers during an 11-0 run as the Kings tied it at 46-46 with 95 seconds to go before halftime.

"It was just a little bit of a letdown," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "It was like we weren't sure what we were doing. That led to some bad shots and some poor judgement on our rotation."

Sacramento led 50-48 after two quarters and stayed within four points throughout the third.
