Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs were well on their way to jumping past the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference standings when Rasheed Wallace and Scottie Pippen took matters into their own hands.

Wallace and Pippen combined to score 29 points in the second half as the Blazers rallied from a 15-point second-quarter deficit and escaped San Antonio with a 95-87 victory.

Portland shot 54 percent (19-of-35) from the field in a dominant second half and prevented the Spurs from moving percentage points ahead of them for the second-best record in the West.

The Blazers moved one-half game ahead of Utah atop the Western Conference but remain percentage points behind the Jazz for the No. 1 spot in the playoff race.

Wallace finished with 22 points and nine rebounds and Pippen added 20 and nine. Bonzi Wells scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting for Portland, which committed just eight turnovers and was 22-of-23 from the line.

San Antonio used an 8-0 run in the fourth quarter to tie it at 81-81 with 4:16 left, but Wallace responded with a hook shot to reclaim the lead. The Spurs missed three shots on their next possession and Pippen sank a 3-pointer at the other end to extend the lead to five.

Danny Ferry missed a wide-open 3-pointer for San Antonio with two minutes left and Wallace drained a 17-footer with 1:41 to go that opened an 88-81 lead. David Robinson gave the Spurs some hope when he sank a 15-foot jumper, but Pippen sealed the win with another 3-pointer as the shot clock wound down with one minute left.

San Antonio led 49-38 at halftime, but Wallace scored the first four points of the second half to start a 9-0 run that brought Portland within two.

"Rasheed has been our catalyst," Pippen said. "We can only go as far as he takes us."

The Blazers finally seized the lead, 66-65, on Arvydas Sabonis' free throw with 1:49 left in the third and closed the quarter with six straight points to open a 71-65 cushion.

"We did a good job on our half-court set in the third quarter and we did a good job getting out in the open court," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "That set the tone to get us back in the ballgame."

Steve Smith gave Portland its biggest lead, 81-73, with a 3-pointer with nine minutes remaining. But the Spurs bounced back with eight straight points to tie with 4:16 to go.

The run began when Wallace was called for his league-leading 31st technical foul and Derek Anderson sank the resulting free throw. Ex-Blazer Terry Porter made a driving layup on the ensuing posession and, after an offensive foul by Portland, nailed a 3-pointer that brought the Spurs within two and gave him 15,000 career points.

After Wallace missed an ill-advised 3-pointer from the top of the key, Porter grabbed the rebound, raced downcourt and drove for a layup.

Porter was bothered by Sabonis and missed the shot, but Tim Duncan soared and slammed it home, tying the game and sending the Alamodome crowd into a frenzy. That's when Wallace and Pippen took over and led Portland to its sixth victory in nine games.

"We knew we had to come out aggressive (in the second half)," Wells said. "We weren't where we wanted to be in the first half, especially defensively. In the second half, we just made them work for everything they got."

San Antonio shot 50 percent (20-of-40) in the first half and led by as many as 15 points in the second quarter but shot just 35 percent (14-of-40) in the second half and fell to 22-6 at home.

"We were in control at the half. They outscored us 33-16 in the third, that was our downfall," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It took the juice and momentum out of us. In the fourth, we tried to get back in it, but Wallace hit every shot and Pippen made threes."

Duncan notched his league-leading 46th double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 rebounds to go with four blocks but shot just 5-of-18.

Robinson had 16 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks and Anderson scored 20 points but committed five turnovers.

Porter finished with 12 points and became the seventh player in NBA history to collect 15,000 points, 6,000 assists and 1,000 steals.

"He's an amazing specimen," Robinson said of Porter. "He's a great example to the young guys. He's a guy who is ready. They call his number and he has been fantastic. He's one of the most frustrated guys when we lose and senses that we can win it."
