Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Dale Davis made two free throws with 1.9 seconds left to cap a furious rally as the Portland Trail Blazers stunned the Utah Jazz, 101-99.

With the score tied at 99-99, Scottie Pippen took an inbounds pass and drove toward the basket. The ball was knocked away and came straight to Davis, who was fouled by Bryon Russell.

After Davis, a 63 percent foul shooter, made his free throws and following a Utah timeout, the Jazz got the ball to John Stockton, whose open 3-pointer rimmed out at the buzzer.

"He'll hit that shot most of the time and this time it just didn't go down," Utah guard John Starks said. "It's unfortunate for us but that's the way it is."

"I thought our guys did a really good job of hanging in the game and really gutting this one out," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We were playing from behind most of the night and they had an answer for us almost every time."

Karl Malone scored off a feed from Stockton for a 97-91 lead with 2:25 to play. Pippen then took the game over with eight straight points, including a straightaway 3-pointer that gave Portland a 99-97 lead with 25.6 seconds to play.

Utah went downcourt and Stockton threw up an air ball on a 3-point attempt. But the ball came right to Danny Manning, whose layup tied the score at 99-99 with six seconds left and set up Davis' heroics.

"You just have to relax when you are on the free throw line and the game depends on your shots," Davis said. "My main thing is just (to) get up there and take my time knocking it down."

Pippen finished with 25 points and Bonzi Wells added 22 for Portland, which won its second straight to cap a 2-1 road trip. The Trail Blazers won the season series, 3-1, from the Jazz and have won six of the last seven regular-season meetings.

"We just haven't been able to close out either of the two games against Portland here nor the one up there," Stockton said. "I can't explain it, if I could, we already probably would have done it."

Rasheed Wallace scored 21 points and Steve Smith added 12 off the bench for Portland, which shot 59 percent (40-of-68). Wallace and Pippen each grabbed seven rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who won for just the third time in nine games.

Manning netted a season-high 25 points off the bench and Malone 24 for Utah. The Jazz, who led by as many as 11 points in the third quarter, fell two games behind San Antonio for the best record in the Western Conference.

"We didn't execute," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "When pressure gets a little bit tough, what do (we) do, just stand around. They picked it up another notch. Every time we play this team, it is the little things that make the difference."

The Jazz shot 50 percent (37-of-74) and fell for just the second time when shooting 50 percent or better -- the first was a 103-102 overtime loss to the Blazers on December 28.

Utah opened up an 11-point lead on four occasions in the third quarter, the last time at 77-66 on a basket by Jacque Vaughn with 78 seconds to play. The Blazers scored the next eight points, including a 3-pointer by Pippen a minute into the fourth quarter and the game was close the rest of the way.
