Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson outscored the Portland Trail Blazers by himself in the third quarter. Then coach Mike Dunleavy watched his team unravel again.

Anderson scored 15 of his 29 points in the third quarter, when the San Antonio Spurs blew open the game en route to a convincing 93-79 victory over the flammable Trail Blazers.

The night did not start well for Dunleavy, who benched temperamental forward Rasheed Wallace for missing the shootaround. Wallace still saw 35 minutes off the bench but was frustrated by Spurs star Tim Duncan and finished with nine points on 4-of-12 shooting before he was ejected in the fourth quarter after receiving two technical fouls. It was Wallace's eighth ejection of the season.

"I don't have the answer. I keep looking for it and looking for it," Dunleavy said of Wallace's antics. "We have got to find ways to keep him in games."

Duncan had 16 points on 4-of-16 shooting and 16 rebounds, but the story was Anderson, who was 9-of-16 from the field, drilled five 3-pointers and matched a season high in points.

"I'm having so much fun right now. That makes such a big difference in your game," Anderson said. "Guys feel confidence in me and it just builds confidence in myself."

"Derek is our main perimeter player," added Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "He is the guy we go to in a lot of situations, especially with the double teams that Tim's going to get."

Bonzi Wells, who led the Blazers with 16 points, also was ejected in the fourth quarter after he disputed a call and received two technicals.

The Spurs (42-19) have won five straight and moved one-half game ahead of Portland (42-20) for second place in the Western Conference. They also avenged a 95-87 home loss on February 27.

The Utah Jazz (42-18) own the best record in the West.

Portland was coming off Tuesday's stunning loss to Vancouver and is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers (41-19) for first place in the Pacific Division.

Against the Grizzlies, the Blazers missed Wallace, who again let his temper get the best of him. After making just 1-of-7 shots, he received two technicals and was ejected early in the third quarter.

On Thursday, his 35th and 36th technicals spelled back-to-back ejections. He refused to address the media after Thursday's game, but teammate Detlef Schrempf expressed his displeasure with Wallace's tired act.

"It's a major problem," Schrempf said. "It should have been addressed a long time ago, but it hasn't been. We talked about it many times. Apparently, it's still the same problem."

The Trail Blazers played without starting center Arvydas Sabonis, who is nursing a sore right foot.

Anderson started the game with a 3-pointer from the left sideline and the Spurs raced to a 9-2 lead. They held a 27-19 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

A 3-pointer by Scottie Pippen, who had just eight points on 3-of-10 shooting, pulled the Trail Blazers within 37-34 with 6:25 left in the half.

But David Robinson took advantage of Sabonis' absence and scored eight points during an 11-2 run. Sean Elliott ignited it with a 3-pointer and Robinson followed with a layup, two free throws, a dunk and a tip-in to open a 48-36 lead with three minutes to go before halftime.

Robinson played just 23 minutes and had 12 points and eight rebounds.

Danny Ferry highlighted an 11-0 run early in the third quarter with a jumper and a 3-pointer, giving San Antonio a 62-44 advantage.

Three 3-pointers and a jumper by Anderson helped the Spurs open their biggest lead at 74-48 with 3:04 left in the period. His 15 points in the quarter were one more than Portland's total.

"Derek was just incredible in the third quarter," Duncan said. "He just kept hitting 3-pointers from all over the place."

But the Blazers started the fourth quarter with a 13-3 run as point guard Rod Strickland led the way with seven points. A layup by Wells pulled Portland within 81-69 with 5:06 left.

But after former Blazer Porter missed a 3-pointer, referee Steve Javie hit Wallace with a technical and Anderson made the free throw with 4:40 left. Five seconds later, Wallace was whistled for a foul, complained vehemently and was slapped with another technical by Javie, resulting in an automatic ejection.

After Anderson converted the second technical foul shot, Antonio Daniels connected on a 3-pointer from the right sideline to open an 86-69 lead with 4:20 left.

With 3:18 left, Porter and Wells received double technicals for pushing each other and both were ejected.
