Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half as the Portland Trail Blazers built a big cushion and cruised to a 113-86 rout of the Golden State Warriors.

Rasheed Wallace added 18 points and 13 rebounds and Shawn Kemp had 14 and 10 for the Blazers (46-30), who had six players score in double figures and remained one game behind Minnesota for fifth place in the Western Conference playoff race with six games to play.

Portland led just 32-31 before Ruben Patterson hit a jumper with 8:39 left in the second quarter to commence a 25-9 run into halftime. Anderson capped it with a 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give Portland a 57-40 lead at the break.

"We were playing hard in the first quarter and they stayed within reach the whole time," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Hopefully our guys understood going up there last time (a 107-91 Warriors triumph last Tuesday) was pretty hard for us. I think our mission was set out to play as hard as we could and move on."

Golden State, which had won two of the first three meetings with Portland this season, got no closer than 14 points thereafter.

"We wanted to get this game let them guys know we were for real, and we can't have any lapses like that," Anderson said. "We have to get our momentum back. We have to get ourselves back to playing Blazer basketball."

"We had too many turnovers (19), they upped the pressure, we didn't shoot the ball as well as we did the last time, and they played a better basketball game," Warriors coach Brian Winters said. "We have a lot of young players, and they still have to learn what it takes to play on a second night (Golden State beat Denver on Friday). They upped the pressure and took us out of some offense and we didn't make enough shots to keep it close, and they got runouts on our misses."

Antawn Jamison had 19 points, Adonal Foyle added 12 and 10 rebounds and Danny Fortson 12 and nine for the Warriors (20-56), who have lost nine in a row in Portland since January 27, 1998.

"You can definitely tell this team has a lot of promise," Jamison said. "Maybe we get another piece to help us out next year. These young guys make me play harder and go out every night and stay positive. We've been in a lot of close ball games. We could easily have 30, 35 wins instead of 20 wins. We just have to stay positive and have fun day in and day out."

Portland outshot Golden State, 49 percent (50-of-102) to 44 percent (39-of-88), and manhandled the Warriors on the boards, 54-39.

"The last time we played this team not only was it defense but it was a lack of energy," said Scottie Pippen, who had 16 points for the Blazers. "We didn't have the energy and they were free balling and knocking down their shots. Tonight was a different game for us. We buckled down and played better defense."

Portland begins a four-game road trip at San Antonio on Monday and Dallas a day later.

"Every game is a big game (now)," Cheeks said. "San Antonio and Dallas back-to-back, we could play these guys in the playoff. I believe our guys will be ready to play."
