Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers and New Jersey Nets threatened NBA records for futility. The teams recorded the second-lowest first quarter in NBA history and tied the record for fewest combined points in the first half in the Trail Blazers' 83-71 victory. The first quarter ended with the Nets - who have lost nine straight games - holding a 10-9 lead. Only Fort Wayne and Syracuse in November 1956 combined for fewer points in an opening 12 minutes, when they were tied 9-9. "It wasn't pretty out there for a while," Portland forward Zach Randolph said. "You've just gotta try and stay aggressive until a rhythm gets going." The Nets and Trail Blazers then tied a more recent record with 55 points combined at the half. Portland held a 30-25 lead at the break, matching the 55 points that San Antonio and Houston combined for on December 11 of last season. After struggling to find any offense in the first half, the teams combined to score 47 points in the third as Portland opened a 56-46 lead heading into the fourth. "This game was ugly," Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "It continued to stay that way until we started making some shots and that changed the game." New Jersey scored six points in the first 1:15 of the second half to take a 31-30 lead on Alonzo Mourning's jump hook with 10:45 left in the third. But Portland went on a 16-1 run to take control of the game. "We came out real strong in the third, made a couple of easy shots, but we couldn't sustain our energy," said Nets guard Travis Best, who made just his second start of the season and scored 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting. "They got it going a little and we couldn't catch up." "We just started moving the ball around a little bit faster and quit lagging around," Portland guard Derek Anderson said. "Once you knock down a couple shots, it can change the whole momentum just like that." Anderson and Shareef Abdur-Rahim combined to score 13 points in Portland's third-quarter spurt. Anderson scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half and Abdur-Rahim added 12 of his 17 in the final two quarters. Randolph posted a double-double for the winners, scoring 23 points and snaring 15 boards. "It's easy to get rebounds when there are so many shots being missed," said Randolph, who had 11 points and 13 rebounds at the half. "Making and missing shots is contagious. Once we started hitting, things got a lot easier." New Jersey forward Richard Jefferson scored 20 points but was just 3-of-13 shooting going into the fourth quarter. The Nets have not won since a 64-60 triumph over Portland on November 9, and things seem to be getting worse. "Pretty disappointed," Nets center Alonzo Mourning said. "Guys are content with losing. We've got to find some sort of electric resolve, something to get us out of this." "We've got nowhere to go except back to New Jersey," a somber Nets coach Lawrence Frank said after being asked where the team goes from here. "We've just gotta find a way to put it together for 48 minutes and that's not being done."
