Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- With a tiring seven-game road trip nearing an end, the Portland Trail Blazers used a balanced attack as Steve Smith led seven players in double figures with 22 points in a 104-94 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Backup point guard Greg Anthony scored 17 points and Scottie Pippen added a season-high 14 and 10 rebounds as Portland improved to 4-2 on its seven-game, 10-day trip, the team's longest since the 1977-78 season.

"We are not playing are best basketball yet and I think we realize that," Pippen said. "So far on our road trip we are 4-2 and with this win it will make us fell a little better about ourselves. We know we should have got out of the blocks a little better, but it is too late for that. We will just try to complete this trip with a win tomorrow night (at Milwaukee)."

"He did a great job for us with his all-around game," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said of Pippen. "He grabbed 10 rebounds and offensively he gave us some good post-ups and fed the post. It was a really good game by him."

Rasheed Wallace, who led the Trail Blazers in scoring in their last four games, contributed 14 points. Wallace, who spent his rookis season in Washington in 1995-96 before he was traded to Portland, scored a season-high 37 points in Sunday's overtime win in Orlando.

"I don't know about that. I don't think he ever gets up for anything out of the ordinary," Dunleavy said. "He just plays that way every night. He's a total team guy. He's very competitive. He's into winning, and I think he's matured and gotten better each year that I've been here. And so far, this is his best year."

Damon Stoudamire and Bonzi Wells each tallied 11 points for Portland, which shot 50 percent (39-of-78), including 6-of-8 from behind the arc. Dale Davis was the only starter not to score in double figures but grabbed nine rebounds to help the Blazers to a 43-33 advantage on the boards.

Despite the tiring road trip the Blazers, basically used just an eight-man rotation. Power forward Shawn Kemp played only five minutes, collecting three fouls and shooting 0-of-3 before he was ejected. Portland has won four straight games in Washington and five of the last six meetings with the Wizards.

Portland used a 12-2 run and took its biggest lead at 99-84 on Davis' three-point play with 5:27 left. Anthony had a big play on the run, making a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down as he was fouled by Chris Whitney. He completed the four-point play for a 93-82 lead with 8:34 to play.

Washington responded with eight straight points, pulling within 99-92 on Juwan Howard's layup with 2:26 to go. Stoudamire and Hamilton traded baskets and Jahidi White blocked a short jumper by Davis with 1:15 left. But Washington came no closer as Hamilton turned the ball over and Stoudamire hit one free throw to make it 102-94 with 53 seconds left.

Mitch Richmond collected 24 points and nine rebounds and Rod Strickland scored 16 points for Washington, which fell to 1-5 at home. Hamilton had 14 points off the bench but made just 6-of-18 shots.

The Wizards became the last team in the NBA to win at home with Saturday's 109-89 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Smith made 5-of-8 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 14 first-half points as the Blazers took a 62-55 lead into the locker room.

"This year we have a lot of veterans that really want to win and so many guys who are professionals," Smith said. "I think that's what makes us better than the average team. We wanted to come in, get up and down and run the floor tonight. We wanted to play good defense, stay focused and we knew they would score a lot of points."

Richmond scored six points in a 10-3 surge. He pulled the Wizards within 78-75 when he hit a 3-pointer with 2:14 left in the third quarter.

Stoudamire halted the burst with a 19-footer 23 seconds later. Richmond and Smith traded a pair of free throws and Wallace blocked a short jumper by White with just under a minute left.

"Mitch got on a roll, but we needed more guys to get on a roll with him," Washington coach Leonard Hamilton said. "The game was tough throughout, but they kept us at bay by doing the little things. They kept us out of our rhythm and we made mistakes on defense and they made us pay."
