Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Karl Malone and John Stockton are old enough and wise enough to know when someone has their number. And right now, Damon Stoudamire and the Portland Trail Blazers have a firm grasp of it.

Having knocked the Jazz out of the Western Conference playoffs in each of the previous two seasons, Portland pulled out its fourth straight regular season win against Utah, 103-102 in overtime, behind a season-high 32 points by Stoudamire.

Stoudamire wore out Stockton all night, helping the Blazers overcome a pair of 13-point deficits by scoring 13 of his points in the final 15 minutes. He hit a 3-pointer and 21-footer in overtime to give the Blazers what appeared to be a safe 101-96 lead with 2:08 to play.

But Danny Manning and Bryon Russell combined to hit three free throws and Stockton finally got his revenge on Stoudamire, inducing the speedy point guard into a foul while burying a layup that forged a 101-101 tie with 4.8 seconds remaining.

Stockton sank the ensuing free throw and the Jazz appeared on the verge of ending their uncharacteristic three-game home losing streak as well as sending the Blazers a message.

Stoudamire rushed the ball down and nearly lost possession, watching the ball bound off the leg of Manning before recovering it and nailing a nine-footer with four-tenths of a second left to give Portland the win and stun the Delta Center.

"I had beat John but then he tapped the ball out from behind and it hit off Danny's leg and bounced right back into my hands and I just tried to get up as fast as I can and it went in," Stoudamire said. "I didn't even have time to think about it and that was probably the best thing."

"That was basically a game that we threw away," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We gave it to them and they took it."

Stoudamire committed just one turnover in 42 minutes for the Blazers, who have won three in a row.

Malone scored 18 points on 5-of-16 shooting and Stockton finished with seven points, 13 assists and five turnovers for Utah, which has dropped consecutive games here after winning three in a row on the road.

Russell scored 20 points and Donyell Marshall added 19 off the bench for Utah, which seemed to have matters in hand when Malone hit a free throw for an 87-74 lead with 7:51 remaining in regulation.

But Scottie Pippen sandwiched a pair of 3-pointers around one from Rasheed Wallace before Stoudamire added two baskets to spark a 15-5 run that resulted in a 92-92 tie with 2:08 left in the fourth quarter.

"We just tried to hold on to our composure," Pippen said. "I mean, we knew that if we stayed in the game and just keep working hard, we would get an opportunity to get back in the game. They allowed us to do that and it was a great, great game. You know, it was a game that could have gone either way."

Neither team was able to score down the stretch, with Greg Anthony missing a potential winning shot for Portland at the buzzer.

Stoudamire, who buried 12-of-18 shots and all six of his free throws, went 4-of-5 from the field in the extra session to make sure the Blazers remained tied with Utah for the third-best record in the West.

Pippen scored 22 points and Wallace added 21 before both fouled out. Portland center Arvydas Sabonis also committed six fouls, leaving Stoudamire as the Blazers' best scoring option down the stretch.

Sabonis and Steve Smith scored 10 points apiece for Portland, which shot 46 percent (36-of-79) and forced 20 turnovers.

Manning scored 11 points and Olden Polynice added 10 for Utah, which shot 51 percent (36-of-70) and made 8-of-15 3-pointers.

"Well, when we lost two in a row (at home), that was bad," Polynice said. "Now we've lost four, so we've got to get out of it some kind of way and that's to win. I thought we were going to do that, we were on the verge of doing that tonight but unfortunately, it didn't happen."
