Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers avoided their worst start in 14 seasons at the expense of the Atlanta Hawks, who established a level of futility not seen since moving to Dixie.

Steve Smith scored 22 points against his former team and Dale Davis provided a strong defensive presence with seven block shots as the Trail Blazers posted a 97-88 victory over the winless Hawks.

Smith, who came to Portland in a four-player deal prior to last season, hit 9-of-16 shots from the field as the Blazers avoided their worst start since 1987-88.

"(Blazers coach) Mike Dunleavey consciously called a lot of plays in the beginning for me," Smith said. "I still have bragging rights. They made the decision to trade me, I don't think it was a good trade. They haven't done well since. I'm trying to go ahead and win a championship here."

When the Blazers acquired Davis in the offseason, they envisioned him performing like he did tonight. He established a career high in blocks and had four in the third quarter, when Portland broke open a close contest.

The veteran power forward also grabbed 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who have won the last four meetings and 10 of the last 14 at the Rose Garden.

"We pushed a lot of guys baseline and I had the opportunity to help out," Davis said. "We needed a good defensive effort tonight. We're a swarming team, especially on defense. We definitely try to get blocks. We try to do anything to bring energy."

Jason Terry had 21 points and Lorenzen Wright collected 18 and 12 rebounds for the Hawks, who are off to their first 0-5 start since the franchise moved from St. Louis to Atlanta for the 1968-69 season.

"This was similar to other games for us -- good effort but not the results we were after," Hawks first-year coach Lon Kruger said. "Our aggressiveness is getting better but we need more time to practice. We've got to minimize our bad stretches."

Clinging to a six-point lead early in the third quarter, Smith followed a slam by Davis with a 3-pointer and Rasheed Wallace answered a free throw by Wright with a layup that gave the Trail Blazers a 63-51 edge with 7:27 to go.

Portland continued to build its advantage as Greg Anthony nailed a 3-pointer, and Davis and Wallace converted layups to provide with a 76-58 cushion with 1:52 left.

Anthony scored most of his 17 points from longe range, hitting 5-of-8 from behind the arc.

The Hawks trailed 78-62 entering the final quarter and were still behind by 13 midway through the period before a late run allowed them to close within 90-85 with 36 seconds left. But Smith had a basket and two free throws and Damon Stoudamire added three from the line to secure the victory.

"We weren't pleased with the way we finished the game," Blazers forward Scottie Pippen said. "The coaching staff wasn't pleased at all. We have to put together 48 minutes and play much better than we have been playing."

Atlanta made only 25 percent (6-of-24) of its shots from the field in the first period and fell behind 25-15 after 12 minutes. Pippen had nine points in the quarter for the Blazers.

The Hawks found the range in the second quarter, hitting 13-of-17 to pull within 51-45 at the half. Terry scored 12 points in the period.

Wallace had 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists for Portland, which shot 48 percent (40-of-83) from the floor and blocked a season-high 15 shots.

Jim Jackson, who came to the Hawks as part of the deal for Smith, had 14 points and rookie DerMarr Johnson added 13 for Atlanta, which shot 37 percent (31-of-84) and converted 23-of-30 free throws.
