Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Just when it looked like their winning streak was about to stop, the Portland Trail Blazers stopped the Detroit Pistons. The Trail Blazers held the Pistons scoreless for more than six minutes of the fourth quarter and extended their season-high winning streak to eight games with an 85-74 victory over Detroit. Rasheed Wallace scored 19 points and Bonzi Wells added 17 for the Blazers, who also have won five straight road games. The overall winning streak is their longest since taking 12 in a row from February 17-March 8 of last season. "I think it was a good time for us when we went on the road on the last road trip," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "I think we bonded, we got away from some tough times in Portland and then we kind of bonded a little bit, understanding some of the things it takes for us to win the game. I think when you go on the road it makes you focus a little bit more, makes you bond a little bit more." "It's just us, man, it's all about our team," Wells added. "We've got to stick together. Adversity strikes and we're just coming together as a family, as brothers. We've just been doing the family thing, trying to stick together." Portland appeared to be cruising to another win as it opened a 68-55 lead late in the third quarter. But Detroit put together a 13-0 surge led by Jon Barry and tied it, 68-68, with 8:28 to play. Wallace made a lane jumper that gave the Blazers the lead for good and immediately reversed the momentum. The Pistons went cold and did not score again until the 2:07 mark. By that time, Cliff Robinson had fouled out, coach Rick Carlisle had been ejected and the Blazers had opened an 83-68 advantage. "We're fighting a stigma, so to speak," Blazers guard Derek Anderson said. "I think that's what's we have to do, keep playing regardless of what happens. Bad guys, you know how it is. The world's against you, so you just play together and you stick together as a team. I think it's just important that we stay together. That was something last year that we had an up and down problem with. This year, we don't." Richard Hamilton scored 22 points and Ben Wallace pulled down 20 rebounds for the Pistons, who had a two-game winning streak stopped. "We made a nice run when we tied it at 68 and I had some bad turnovers around that time and they made the plays," Barry said. "They are awfully good. Their length and their defense are good. We shot 35 percent and they did a nice job defensively." Detroit's troubles against Portland continued. It has lost the last five meetings as well as the last five at home. A hook by Rasheed Wallace gave the Blazers their largest lead at 68-55 with 1:35 left in the third quarter. Barry and Corliss Williamson each made two free throws to end the period, and Barry opened the fourth quarter with a pair of 3-pointers, cutting the deficit to 68-65. After Barry sank a foul shot for a technical whistled against Portland's Ruben Patterson, Williamson scored inside to tie it. After Rasheed Wallace scored, Scottie Pippen threw in a hook and Wells took a steal the length of the court for a layup and a 74-68 lead with 5:46 left. As Robinson and Carlisle departed, Dale Davis had a pair of baskets and Anderson made three free throws, helping push the lead to 83-68 with 2:38 to play. "We're playing together," Anderson said. "We have runs where we've given up a lead, but we still stay together whereas last year people were complaining about playing, there were so many other things. Now nobody complains, they just play." Anderson scored 14 points and Davis swept 10 boards for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (29-of-63) from the field. Williamson scored 16 points and Barry added 14 for the Pistons, who shot just 36 percent (26-of-73). Robinson was 2-of-8 from the field and Chauncey Billups 0-of-6. "One of the things we talked about going into the game was to try and have some individual defense and put a focus on guarding Rip Hamilton, Chauncey Billups and Cliff Robinson," Cheeks said. "Really, that was the key to our game. When one of the big three got the ball, we stepped in and helped and rotated back to the other guy."
