Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- It took one game for Gary Payton and Sam Cassell to show everyone they can play together. Payton's debut with his new team was a successful one as he teamed with Cassell to lead a fourth-quarter rally that gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 93-90 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Prior to Thursday's trading deadline, Payton came over in a five-player deal from Seattle, where he had spent his first 12-plus seasons. Playing his 1,000th career game and first with Milwaukee, the perennial All-Star was in the starting backcourt alongside Cassell. There was strong speculation that the Bucks would bench Cassell in favor of Payton at point guard. But both players ran the offense at times and played off the ball at times. "I expected Sam to handle it and I'm gonna handle it," said Payton, downplaying the issue. "I think it's going to get better in time. I can't wait," Cassell said. The two teamed to lead an 18-5 charge over the final seven minutes. During that stretch, Cassell scored 10 points, while Payton set up three baskets, drilled a clutch 3-pointer and smothered Derek Anderson's shot in the final seconds. Payton had 22 points and nine assists and Cassell added 16 and eight for the Bucks, who snapped a four-game losing streak and swept the season series from the Trail Blazers. "I think it is a two-headed thing that I think a lot of teams are going to have to adjust to because we are both going to be pushing the ball hard," Cassell said. "We don't consider each other point guards. We consider each other guards right now. It's the new age of Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe. Now it's Gary Payton and Sam Cassell." "That's what we are," Payton concurred. "We're going to be a combo. We're going to have a good time for the next two months. We're going to try to make a run at the East and hopefully we can get a lot of things done." The two in tandem impressed Portland coach Maurice Cheeks. "Gary Payton and Sam Cassell playing together - pretty good combination," Cheeks said. "Pretty good." Despite missing his first three shots, Payton was 9-of-18 from the field. He also moved past Cheeks into seventh place on the all-time assists list with 7,393. "He knows how to play basketball and it's very contagious, especially defensively," said Karl, who coached Payton for six-plus years in Seattle. "I saw our guys playing defense down in their position stance more tonight than we have done all year long. Down the stretch, we were down 10. We made four straight stops and got back in the game right there." It was the second fourth-quarter collapse in as many nights for Portland, which also gave away a late lead in Friday's road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Bonzi Wells scored 26 points and Anderson added 23 for the Blazers. A tip-in and alley-oop dunk by Ruben Patterson gave Portland its largest lead at 85-75 with 7:02 to play. Out of a timeout, Cassell made consecutive baskets before Payton found Michael Redd for a jumper, cutting the deficit to 85-81 with 5:29 to go. Jeff McInnis made an 18-footer, but Cassell sank a transition runner. Payton fed Redd for a 3-pointer and shoveled a pass to a flashing Cassell for a layup and an 88-87 edge with 1:44 remaining. "All those people who doubted, we had about 16 or 18 assists in the backcourt tonight," Karl said. "They just played basketball very well. The play at the end of the game that gave us the lead, (Gary) made a very great read and (Sam) cut to the basket and made a layup." "He looks for me and he would say, 'Who would be the fisrt option?'" Cassell said. "We look at each other as the first option. If he's got it going, we're going to feed off of him. If I've got it going ..." On Milwaukee's next possession, Payton sank a 3-pointer with 1:09 left. Wells answered with a 3-pointer, and the Blazers had a chance to take the lead after Tim Thomas missed a jumper. But Payton blanketed Anderson, whose 3-pointer was an airball for a shot clock violation with 10 seconds to go. Cassell made two foul shots with 10.1 seconds remaining. Damon Stoudamire, who came on for the first time after a timeout, missed badly on a potential tying 3-pointer. "We were looking for a prayer at that time to make a shot," Cheeks said. "I think the play before that when we didn't get a shot, that obviously hurt us." Thomas scored 19 points and Redd added 17 for the Bucks, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81), including 10-of-22 from the arc. Swingman Desmond Mason, who also came over in the Payton trade, scored six points in 20 minutes off the bench. "I don't have all that burden on me like I did. I felt really relaxed," Payton said. "We have a good team over here. I know Mason is feeling the same way. We got a burden off of us and now we're just going to be playing basketball." Rasheed Wallace had 10 points and 10 rebounds and Patterson scored 10 points for the Blazers, who shot 50 percent (39-of-78) and held a 41-34 edge on the boards. Despite 12 first-quarter points by Payton, Portland controlled most of the first half, leading by as many as 12 points before settling for a 51-48 advantage. It took a 68-63 bulge into the final period. "Once I came out in the fist quarter, I knew I had to give them a boost and let them understand that I'm going to be energetic and they're going to be energetic," Payton said. "They don't have to do too much."
