Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Theo Ratliff helped deliver another blow to the Philadelphia 76ers' fading playoff hopes. Ratliff punctuated a big night with a pair of key defensive plays in the final minute as the Portland Trail Blazers completed a successful road trip with an 88-82 victory over the 76ers. The NBA leader in blocked shots per game, Ratliff haunted his former team with a strong night on the interior. He blocked six shots to go with 14 points and six rebounds. Ratliff's biggest plays came down the stretch. After Darius Miles dunked to give the Trail Blazers an 86-82 lead with 1:27 left, the 6-10 center blocked Kenny Thomas' shot, then helped change a shot by Samuel Dalembert with 32 seconds to go. "I always try to be that force in the middle and try to shut guys down and make them shoot the ball at a lower percentage," Ratliff said. "They know that every time they come to the hoop, no matter what, I'm always there. They might get a shot over me sometimes, they might get a dunk over me sometimes, but that's not going to stop me from challenging their shots." Ratliff also drew praise from Miles. "Theo's helping us out on the post, that really helped us out on defense," Miles said. "He does so much for the team. He's the MVP of our team right now." Miles and Zach Randolph each scored 18 points for the Trail Blazers, who won two of three games on their trip to tie Utah for the final Western Conference playoff berth. "It's an uphill battle," Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We're still climbing uphill. Unfortunately, we didn't get the game in New York, but two out of three on this trip is good for us." Rookie Willie Green netted a career-high 22 points and Dalembert had 19 rebounds for Philadelphia, which fell 2 1/2 games behind Boston for the last postseason spot in the East with six games to play. "It hurt. The thing that I get out of it is we hung in there," Sixers guard Aaron McKie said. "We could have easily laid down and just quit. We just kept fighting and got ourselves back in the game and made a game of it. Unfortunately for us, we lost, but we continue to fight." Averaging just 5.7 points per game entering the contest, Green attempted to rally the Sixers from a 70-62 deficit in the fourth quarter. He scored 10 points in the period, including a follow dunk with 5:25 left that tied the contest at 76-76. Green led a strong effort by the Sixers' bench that outscored the Trail Blazers' reserves, 38-17. Kyle Korver added 12 points off the bench for the Sixers. "We got a great lift from Willie (Green) and Kyle (Korver) coming off the bench, and we were riding Willie's coattails there for that fourth period," Sixers coach Chris Ford said. "We had the opportunities." But Randolph, who went 8-of-15 from the field and also grabbed nine rebounds, gave the Trail Blazers the lead for good 18 seconds later by making 1-of-2 free throws. Green made a jumper with 2:21 left to pull the Sixers within 82-80, but Miles answered by scoring inside. Miles made 7-of-13 shots and grabbed 10 rebounds in another strong effort. He scored a career-high 31 points in Wednesday's victory at Boston. The Trail Blazers took advantage of some poor shooting by the Sixers to build a 48-40 halftime lead. Philadelphia shot just 32 percent (13-of-41) in the half, compared to 50 percent (19-of-38) by Portland. Portland led by as many as 13 points in the third quarter before Philadelphia pulled within 66-60 entering the final period.
