Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers watched another team lose its cool for a change en route to a 109-104 victory over the rival Los Angeles Lakers.

Maybe the most volatile team in the NBA, the Trail Blazers used a pair of key technical free throws with 3:14 left to win in its first trip to the Staples Center this season.

With Portland Leading 99-97, Los Angeles got possession off a missed 3-pointer. Ron Harper grabbed the rebound but flashed an elbow in the lane and was called for a technical. Assistant coach Tex Winters also got one while arguing during a timeout.

"I told the ref that he should be looking in the rule book," explained Winters, who said the rule states that contact must be made with the elbow for it to be a technical.

Stoudamire sank both free throws as the Trail Blazers grabbed a 101-97 edge with 3:14 to go and led by at least three points the rest of the way.

"I think they played better than we did," Lakers forward Rick Fox said. "I hate to say it, but they made some big plays and put themselves in a situation that frustrated us."

Portland adopted the "Hack-a-Shaq" defense down the stretch and watched league Most Valuable Player Shaquille O'Neal go 0-for-4 in the closing minutes from the free throw line for Los Angeles.

Kobe Bryant tried taking over late and nearly got the Lakers within a point but was called for a charge on a driving layup with 7.4 seconds left and fouled out.

"(Coach) Phil (Jackson) said if we had an easy look for a 3-pointer, take it, if not, attack early and attack quick," Bryant said.

"It was a horrible call, a ridiculous call. I didn't think he was in the right place to make the call. When I heard the whistle, I thought it was a three-point play for me."

The league record-holder in technical fouls for a season, Rasheed Wallace drew the offensive foul on Bryant and finished with 33 points to lead six Blazers in double figures.

Stoudamire scored 27 and combined with Wallace to go 19-of-26 from the line.

O'Neal totaled 32 points and 15 rebounds while Bryant recorded 29 points and six assists. Fox added 22 points for the Lakers, who had won five straight games.

"I've been pretty happy with the way we've been playing lately and we shouldn't let this loss be a bump in the road," Fox said.

Scottie Pippen surpassed the 17,000-point mark for the Blazers, who improved to 2-1 in the season series. They have handed the Lakers their last two defeats.

Portland, which had dropped its previous two road games, relinquished a 15-point lead in Game Seven of the Western Conference finals last season in its last visit to the Staples Center.

"You come in here and play a team that had been playing well and beat them on their home floor, it's big," Stoudamire said.

The Blazers never led in the first half and trailed most of the first 18 minutes of the second before Stoudamire sank an 18-foot jumper for a 91-89 lead with 6:23 to play.

Fox sank one of his four 3-pointers to cap a 7-1 run as the Lakers seemed to have control again, leading 96-92 with 5:04 left.

But Stoudamire hit a 19-footer from the left sideline and Pippen followed a miss by rookie Mike Penberthy by hitting a 3-pointer, giving Portland a 97-96 lead with 4:15 remaining.

Fox hit 1-of-2 free throws to tie it but Stoudamire again sank a jumper, giving the Blazers the lead for good with 3:40 to play.

"It's a great, great win for us," Pippen said. "We came here realizing that this is definitely a marquee game for us and the league."

Portland never led in the first half, trailing by as much as 10 with 1:46 to go. But a dunk by Pippen capped a 15-4 run bridging the halves and gave the Blazers their first lead, 62-61, two minutes into the third quarter.

"We had the tempo and lead for pretty much the entire first half," Bryant said. "We let them gain some momentum in the second quarter at the end and it carried through in the third quarter."

The Lakers regained the lead and did not trail again until Stoudamire's jumper with 6:23 left.

Los Angeles could have helped itself from the free throw line but went just 28-of-41. A 38-percent shooter, O'Neal hit six of his first nine attempts before missing his final five.

O'Neal went 13-of-20 from the field and Fox shot 6-of-10. Bryant hit 9-of-20 shots, but missed all four from 3-point range.

Pippen, Arvydas Sabonis and Shawn Kemp each scored 12 points for the Blazers, who held a 45-34 rebounding advantage. Bonzi Wells had 10 rebounds to go along with 10 points. Pippen and Stoudamire had nine boards apiece and Wallace added eight.
