Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- After three technicals in the span of a minute left them staring at a double-digit deficit, the Portland Trail Blazers regained their composure and won their fourth straight game.

Dale Davis had 20 points and 14 rebounds and Rasheed Wallace added 16 and 13 to lead Portland to a 92-86 win over the Seattle SuperSonics.

Seattle took its biggest lead, 46-30, on Gary Payton's 21-foot jumper with 4:19 left in the second quarter. Portland managed to pull within six points on a 12-2 run, but comitted a shot clock violation.

Scottie Pippen then was ejected with 45 seconds left in the half after receiving two technicals for aggressively arguing fouls and Wallace picked up his 13th of the season just seconds later.

"In one stretch we got two or three technical fouls and I remember taking a 20-second (timeout) to regroup ourselves and trying to get out of the first half without any damage," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "At that point the game was getting out of control from us and we tried to pull ourselves together and get back."

Pippen, who finished with 12 points, was pleased with the way his teammates rallied without him.

"I think my team did a really good job of closing the game out, even with my absence. The leadership of Damon (Stoudamire) and Rasheed out there really sealed the deal for us," Pippen said. "It was an opportunity for them to bring the team together and they did a great job."

The SuperSonics led 54-44 at the half but went five minutes without a basket to start the third quarter and the Blazers went on an 11-0 to seize the lead.

"We stayed within our game plan and we stayed kind of focused and after the techs we had to regroup ourselves before the halftime which was coming up soon," Cheeks added. "We tried to put the ball on the floor a little more and get to the rim and rebound the ball."

Bonzi Wells contributed 19 points and Stoudamire and Derek Anderson had 10 points apiece for the Trail Blazers, who have won 10 of of their last 12.

"(Winning) feels real good," Stoudamire said. "We have just been playing solid basketball all the way around. We've been handling our business."

Payton scored 13 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, Desmond Mason chipped in 14 and Rashard Lewis 13, but Seattle lost for just the second time in its last six contests.

"We played with hope tonight," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "We built a lead by going out there and playing hard and believing and executing defensively and offensively and then we relied on hope. It started the second quarter when they started getting aggressive on us and then we were back on our heels and we didn't respond."

Portland took the lead for good, 80-79, on a 3-pointer by Wallace with 3:36 left in the fourth quarter. Davis made a layup and Anderson drained a 3-pointer around a basket by Payton to push the Blazers' advantage to four points.

"After Scottie went out of the game we did a good job of rotating Ruben (Patterson) and Derek on Gary," Davis said. "Our defense was our big key tonight. We felt like we weren't getting any breaks on any calls and it was an emotional game. I think we turned that negative energy into positive energy."

The Sonics closed within 85-83 with 1:56 on a jumper by Mason but Portland went on an 6-0 spurt, capped by Wells' two free throws with 24 seconds to go. The Blazers held on to defeat the Sonics for the eighth time in nine games, including two in a row this season.

"I think we came out flat (in the second half)," Mason said. "We didn't come out prepared to play. We came and played in spurts instead of playing a solid second half and that's something we tend to do every once in a while. It's unfortunate that we lost this game because we felt like this was a really big game for us."

Seattle got 10 points, four rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes from forward Vin Baker, who left in the third quarter with a sprained left shoulder. He was questionable Tuesday night after missing Saturday's contest.

"It's always tough playing without Vin," Mason said. "You know you have to have that big presence. You got to establish a post game and that's what Vin does for us -- establishes the inside game and then guys have to double and then kick out and swing it to shooters a bit."

Brent Barry collected 11 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Sonics, who shot 40 percent from the field (33-of-82), including 9-of-17 (53 percent) from 3-point range. But they yielded 24 points on 17 turnovers and were outrebounded, 45-40.

Portland shot 49 percent (38-of-78) and outscored Seattle, 42-30, in the paint.

"We can't rely on a preimeter game to win," McMillan said. "We needed some low-post play tonight and we didn't have that and we relied on jump shots. And we will not win a lot of games shooting from the perimeter and tonight that's where the majority of our shots came from."
