Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers finished off their longest road trip in 23 years like they were enjoying being away from home.

Rasheed Wallace led a balanced attack with 18 points and Arvydas Sabonis scored all 10 of his in the third quarter, when the Trail Blazers broke open the game en route to a 93-84 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

On the last leg of their seven-game, 10-day odyssey -- the club's longest since the 1977-78 campaign -- the Trail Blazers ran out to an 8-0 lead and never looked back.

Milwaukee closed within 67-63 late in the third quarter but Sabonis scored six points during a 10-0 run to close the period, ending the Bucks' hopes of a comeback against the road-weary Blazers.

Portland finished 5-2 on the trip and has begun to display the talent that had many touting them as preseason favorites to knock off the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference.

"This is a great road win for us," former Bucks coach Mike Dunleavy said. "It was our seventh road game in 10 nights, and to win five is great. We had a lot of good contributions across the board. It always feels great (to be back in Milwaukee)."

Steve Smith scored 12 points and Shawn Kemp, Greg Anthony and Scottie Pippen exhibited Portland's immense depth by adding 10 apiece.

"Going 5-2 ain't bad but we could have easily gone 6-1, maybe even 7-0," Smith said. "We had a good game yesterday (at Washington) and a good game tonight. It's nice to get a win before Thanksgiving. We have a lot of road games under our belt. Now we're able to go home and play in front of our fans."

Glenn Robinson scored 20 points, Ray Allen 19 and Tim Thomas 15 off the bench for Milwaukee, which was without starting point guard Sam Cassell due to a strained left knee.

"They have a really good team," Robinson said. "They have so many great players on that team that they are hard to defend. We just have to go back to work after the holiday and win a game against Charlotte (on Friday)."

Smith, Damon Stoudamire and Wallace contributed to the opening run with Wallace's layup making it 8-0 with 9:51 remaining in the first quarter. Wallace added a 3-pointer, a 17-footer, two free throws and a 28-footer to stretch the margin to 20-7 with 5:35 left in the period.

Wallace managed just eight points after the opening 12 minutes but his multi-dimensional teammates picked up the slack.

"(Rasheed has) been great the whole trip," Dunleavy said. "We've all been a little fatigued during this trip, but he's been great. I played him about the whole second half. He's the type of player that forces defenses to double-team him and we were able to work guys off the ball and we got some good shots."

Anthony came in for Stoudamire and hit a 15-footer, two 3-pointers and added another basket to help Portland to a 54-47 halftime advantage.

The third period belonged to Sabonis, who made two free throws and an 18-footer before keying the Blazers' big run to end the period. The 7-3 center made two more from the line, a layup and 13-footer to give Portland a 77-63 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

Stoudamire scored nine points and Dale Davis and Bonzi Wells added six apiece for the Blazers, who shot 49 percent (34-of-69), held a 40-34 rebounding advantage and hit 19-of-20 free throws. Portland yielded 19 points off turnovers.

"It'll be nice to be home," Wells said of the team's upcoming three-game homestand. "I'm happy to get (the road trip) out of the way."

Rafer Alston scored a career-high 12 points off the bench for Milwaukee, which shot 42 percent (33-of-78) and was a mediocre 11-of-19 at the line.

"It's hard to sit here and discuss how we shoot shots," said Bucks coach George Karl. "Right now we're not shooting well. We need to get the confidence back in our shot. My philosophy is that you don't have to make shots to win basketball games. You win games with the intangibles -- rebounding, hustling and defense."
