Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers were without their leading scorer, but they think they witnessed a sign of things to come by his replacement. With Rasheed Wallace watching from the bench, Zach Randolph had career highs of 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Trail Blazers posted an 109-103 victory over the last-place Los Angeles Clippers. When Wallace was unable to play due a sore left Achilles' tendon, Randolph was given his eighth start of the season. Randolph, who had averaged 7.2 points in 15.1 minutes prior to Friday, made the most of the chance, finishing 10-of-15 from the floor in 32 minutes. But for the Blazers, a team that features one player under 25 years old in their regular rotation, the 21-year-old Randolph's breakout game was not a surprise. "Zach was great," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "He was unbelievable. He's a hungry player. Any time he gets his hands on the ball he tries to score. He has no fear. He just goes out and plays. You've got to love him because he brings the energy. He brings a different style. He's excited about playing and every time he steps out on the floor he just loves being out there." After playing just 41 games and averaging 2.8 points per game in 2001-02, the second-year forward out of Michigan State got his first chance as the starting power forward when Wallace was serving a seven-game suspension. Randolph averaged 11.8 points and the Blazers went 5-2. "I'm just out there playing hard and staying focused and mentally was ready to play basketball," Randolph said. "Every opportunity I get to play, I take advantage of it and try to play hard." With Wallace, who averages 18.4 points per game, cheering his team on from the bench, Randolph and Scottie Pippen teamed up to form an effective inside-outside combination. The duo scored 17 of Portland's 38 points in the fourth quarter and 15 of its final 22 points over the final 6:28 as the Blazers overcame three four-point deficits in the final 12 minutes. "Zach is a player when given the opportunity, he's been able to take advantage of it," said Pippen, who was 15 when Randolph was born. "Unfortunately, he's playing behind a guy like Rasheed. You don't get an opportunity to see him a whole lot. He's a bona fide player in this league and he's going to get better as he gets minutes." Returning from a left knee injury that kept him out of Wednesday's close win in Denver, Pippen scored 10 of his 24 points in the final 4 1/2 minutes, starting with a three-point play that gave the Blazers a 95-92 lead. Pippen's mid-range jumper from the right side gave Portland the lead for good, 99-97, with 2:48 to play. After his basket, neither team scored in the next 70 seconds until Ruben Patterson put back Bonzi Wells' miss. Andre Miller's free throws made it a two-point game again with 91 seconds to play. But Pippen and Randolph hit mid-range jumpers on successive possessions around a missed a 3-pointer by Maggette to give the Blazers a 105-99 edge with 41 seconds left, and the Clippers got no closer than three points in the waning seconds. "I just wanted to come out and be aggressive," Pippen said. "I had a day of rest. My legs felt good. I just came out and played in a flow. I just tried to keep it up." Pippen, who was two shy of his season high, had plenty of help as the Blazers won their eighth straight home game in the series. Anderson added 18, Patterson came off the bench and chipped in 11 and Wells finished with 10 as Portland shot 51 percent (44-of-87). Pippen also contributed in other ways as the Blazers continued to thrive with him as the starting point guard. In 35 minutes, he had eight of their 25 assists and his eight rebounds were second on the team behind Randolph. For the Clippers (19-38), it was the same old story as they dropped their 19th game when leading at some point in the fourth quarter. "It's kind of how our season has gone," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry said. "We played great, (but) we didn't execute a couple of things down the stretch." Los Angeles dropped its fourth straight game despite shooting 53 percent (41-of-77). But it was outrebounded 43-32, including 18-9 on the offensive end, and gave up 27 second-chance points. "The bottom line in the game was on the boards," Gentry said. "We did a good job of stopping, initially, and we gave up too many second-chance points. We shot the ball well. If you shoot 53 percent and turn the ball over 13 times, you would have a chance to win wherever you play. But we just gave away too many second-chance points." The Clippers played their second straight game with starting forward Elton Brand, who has a bruise on his lower left leg. Without him they got 23 points from Lamar Odom, 21 from Maggette and 20 from Miller. Los Angeles shot 56 percent (20-of-36) in the first half, but led just 49-48 at halftime as Portland shot 54 percent (21-of-31). The Clippers took their largest lead of the quarter, 66-61, on Odom's basket with 4:45 remaining. But Randolph and Pippen combined for five points as the Blazers used a 10-5 spurt to forge a 71-71 tie entering the fourth.
