Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Their latest off-court incident may have distracted the Portland Trail Blazers so much that it kept them from defending Karl Malone and the Utah Jazz down the stretch. Malone scored eight of his 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Jazz posted a 93-88 victory over the Trail Blazers. Portland's most recent incident was a fight between reserve forwards Zach Randolph and Ruben Patterson during a heated practice Wednesday. Randolph punched Patterson in the face and was suspended for two games by the team. The scuffle began with an argument between Patterson and rookie Qyntel Woods. Randolph stepped in and was fined $100,000. The fight was the latest serious problem for the Blazers, who have had Rasheed Wallace and Damon Stoudamire charged with marijuana possession and Patterson arrested and fined by the team for suspicion of domestic assault. In January, Wallace was suspended seven games by the NBA for threatening an official after a game. And on March 10, Bonzi Wells was suspended one game after arguing with coach Maurice Cheeks during practice. "We were a little flat and understandably we were a little flat, considering the things that went on," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We kind of put things aside and went out on the court and tried to play. We have to somehow put it in perspective and move on. We have to keep things in the right category. This is not easy and it's certainly not easy for the guys in the locker room." "I don't get caught up in the off-court problems," Malone said. "I think at some point everybody has them. Some teams have them more than others. You don't think about the problems they're going through. You think about us executing. If that's the excuse people will use, that's fine." The turmoil comes as the Blazers are fighting for home-court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The loss dropped them into a tie for fourth place with Minnesota, which leads the season series, 2-1, and visits Portland on Sunday. "We know all the games here on out are important," Cheeks said. "So it will be especially important to have the right mind-set and start each game with a good energy level and not be flat like we were tonight." Portland was unable to hold an 80-75 lead with 6:34 remaining. It failed to defend down the stretch as Malone hit three uncontested jumpers and forged an 84-84 tie with 3:42 remaining. The Jazz took the lead for good on their next trip when Wells drew a technical and John Stockton made the free throw. Just over a minute later, the Blazers failed to dive for a loose ball and Greg Ostertag dunked to make it 87-84 with 82 seconds to play. Portland responded 11 seconds with a jumper by Wallace. But Stockton hit a jumper and Matt Harpring drilled a 3-pointer to build the Jazz's lead to 93-86. "Different guys had their hand in something to give us the opportunity to get a win," Malone said. "We closed some ground on these guys. Now we have the tiebreaker and that is something to think about." "We stayed with it and gave ourselves a chance to win," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan added. "There were a couple of plays that we just ended up with the ball because we stayed after it." Although Utah squandered a 15-point lead early in the second half, it won for the eighth time in nine games and pulled within 1 1/2 of Portland and Minnesota. The Jazz had a 54-39 lead, but the Blazers climbed within 54-50 with 6:33 to go in the third quarter. A 10-4 spurt by Utah restored a 65-57 cushion. Portland chipped away and trailed 67-64 heading to the final period. It opened the quarter with a 10-2 burst and took a 74-69 lead with 9:17 remaining before Utah began its comeback. "I think we had a game plan that we tried to stick with the whole way, even when they went up," Malone said. "We kept our composure and stayed in there. We just go out there and do our job and try to get a win. We just made an effort to go after the basketball." Wallace paced the Blazers with 23 points on 10-of-20 shooting. Wells added 13 before being ejected with 17.1 seconds remaining as Portland shot 43 percent (34-of-79).
