Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Rasheed Wallace made sure a close game got no closer. Wallace scored 11 of his 27 points in the final five minutes as the Portland Trail Blazers held on for a 101-96 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics, who have lost six straight games. The Trail Blazers grabbed the lead for good midway through the third quarter and nursed it the rest of the way. For nine minutes of the final period, the the margin fluctuated between six and three points. Wallace was the reason the SuperSonics could not get over the hump. His turnaround jumper from the post extended the lead to 88-82 with 4:56 remaining and his half-hook kept it at 90-85 with 3:19 to go. "That's a good player. He's just doing his job," Seattle All-Star guard Gary Payton said. "He was patient. We played him real tough. He had his opportunity to get the ball, he put the ball in the basket." After Seattle closed to 90-87, Wallace drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key to double the lead with 2:22 left. He sank two free throws 37 seconds later for a 95-89 bulge. "He really hit a big three, the kick-out play and the shot clock winding down," Seattle's Brent Barry said. "Rasheed, no matter what happens throughout the course of the game, he becomes real dangerous in the fourth quarter. And that's what really great players in this league do." Portland, which wasted a 17-point first-quarter lead, nearly blew an eight-point advantage in the last minute. A free throw by Desmond Mason and 3-pointers by Vladimir Radmanovic and Predrag Drobnjak made it 97-96 with 12 seconds to go. But Derek Anderson made two free throws, Gary Payton missed an off-balance 3-pointer and Wallace sealed it with a pair from the line in the final second. "It was a running play. It wasn't a good look," Payton said. "It was a prayer that didn't go in." Wallace, who did not talk about his play after the game, made just 7-of-18 shots but sank 12-of-13 free throws and pulled down eight rebounds. Since returning from his seven-game suspension for accosting a referee away from the court, he is averaging 25.1 points in seven games. "Rasheed's been big," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "I can't even count the many big games he's had so far as of late just coming off the break. The San Antonio game, the Boston game, tonight's game - I think he's just been our horse. He's been the player we all know he can be. Pretty much he's been carrying us so far." "I thought he was huge," Blazers forward Dale Davis added. "He had a big presence down low, and that's the type of effort we're going to need from him. And he's definitely capable of giving big numbers and we need him to do that for this team to win." Anderson scored 20 points and Davis added 17 and 14 rebounds for the Blazers, who snapped a two-game slide and improved to 3-0 against the SuperSonics this season. Drobnjak scored 23 points and Payton added 19 for Seattle, which also lost six in a row from January 3-16. A jumper by Davis gave Portland a 64-62 lead with 6:53 left in the third quarter. The Blazers took a 78-72 advantage into the final period. A jumper by Radmanovic, who scored nine points, cut the deficit to 79-77 with 10:15 left. But Bonzi Wells answered with a 3-pointer, and the Sonics got no closer until the final minute. Two free throws by Wells gave Portland a 29-12 lead with 3:04 left in the first quarter. But Seattle closed to 31-25 entering the second period, and Payton scored six points in a 16-4 run that gave the Sonics a 44-42 lead with 4:29 remaining. In the third quarter, Payton held a running conversation with Portland's Scottie Pippen. He stripped Pippen in the backcourt, went in for a layup and flashed him a big grin. Less than a minute later, Payton picked up a technical foul. "I thought the technical was a big technical on Gary," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. Wells scored 12 points for Portland, which shot 45 percent (33-of-74), made 27-of-32 free throws and held a 39-30 advantage on the boards. Desmond Mason scored 14 points, Vitaly Potapenko added 13 and Brent Barry handed out 13 assists for Seattle, which shot 49 percent (39-of-79) but made just 10-of-16 from the line. "We've got to make our free throws," McMillan said. "We missed six free throws and you can't afford to do that against a very good team such as Portland."
