GAME RECAP

Rex Chapman, who hit a 30-foot jumper to force triple overtime, sank two crucial free throws in the fourth extra session as the Phoenix Suns pulled out a 140-139 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in the longest game of the season.

The wild affair was the first four-overtime game for Phoenix, which entered the NBA in 1968, and the third for Portland, which joined in 1971. This three-hour, 46-minute marathon was the longest game in Trail Blazers history, topping the franchise's last four-overtime game, a 156-155 loss to Chicago on March 16th, 1984.

Danny Manning, who scored seven points in the first half, scored six of his 35 in the fourth overtime. He drained two free throws and made a layup off a feed from Jason Kidd, giving the Suns a 138-133 lead with 2:05 left.

Stacey Augmon hit a jumper and split a pair of free throws to pull Portland within two, but Chapman, who added 28 points, answered with a pair of foul shots with 11.2 seconds left.

Isaiah Rider, who had 35 points and 11 boards, nailed a three-pointer with 1.3 seconds left. But the ensuing inbounds pass went to Chapman and he was able to dribble out the clock.

John Crotty hit six straight free throws in the second overtime to help give Portland a 119-116 lead with 7.1 seconds to go.

"After I hit the free throws in the OT, I thought we had it. That is what makes it so tough," Crotty said.

Phoenix inbounded to Chapman and surprisingly, he immediately fired a fallaway 30-foot three-pointer that tied the game with four seconds left. Portland had no timeouts remaining and was unable to get off a shot before the buzzer sounded, sending the game to a third extra session.

"I didn't feel like I could hit a better shot," said Chapman, who made a similar shot in last season's playoffs against Seattle. "I would have been sick as a dog if we would have lost this game. The emotions were so high for everyone. This is what you play for."

"Rex made a ton of crazy shots for us in the past year. Guys like that make coaches look good," Suns coach Danny Ainge said.

But Chapman was unable to be the hero again as his potential game-winning runner in the final seconds was an air ball.

Kevin Johnson chipped in 15 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists for the Suns (5-1), who are off to their best start since the 1992-93 season, when they went to the NBA Finals.

"Rex is a freak. He has such tremendous range that it doesn't surprise us anymore," Johnson said. "For both teams, this is one of the all-time great games. For me, it was probably the best. There were so many six-point swings and huge shots."

Brian Grant had a season-high 34 points and 17 rebounds and Arvydas Sabonis contributed 31 and 10 for Portland (5-2), which had been off to its best start since the 1992-93 season. Kenny Anderson, who had scored at least 20 points in the last five wins, was held to seven before fouling out.

"The results are positive, but it is a hard loss to swallow," Anderson said. "I sat for two OTs, so it was difficult to watch."

"I don't believe what happened in this game," Sabonis said. "I feel good, even after playing 50 minutes. However, we have to come back strong."

Phoenix could have put away the game in regulation, leading 95-86 with 1:52 to play. But Portland ended the game with a 12-3 run and Sabonis hit an off-balance three-pointer with 2.7 seconds left to tie the game, 98-98.

Portland's Rasheed Wallace scored 13 points but fouled out with 24.7 seconds left in the first overtime and Manning hit the ensuing free throws to make it 106-106. After the Suns' Antonio McDyess fouled out with 17 points and seven rebounds, Grant missed a short fallaway at the buzzer to force double overtime.

Phoenix opened a 114-110 lead on Johnson's running jumper with less than two minutes left in the second overtime, but the Blazers scored the next six points. After Sabonis sank two free throws, Crotty drained four foul shots for a 117-114 edge with 19.1 seconds left.

Manning scored on an uncontested layup just four seconds later before Crotty, who has made all 19 of his free-throw attempts this season, hit two more from the stripe prior to Chapman's miraculous bomb.

Portland appeared to have the game well in hand by opening the third extra session with an 8-2 run. Grant scored six points on the spurt and Rider's inside bucket capped it, giving the Blazers a 127-121 lead with 2:43 to go.

Chapman answered with a three-pointer and former Blazer Cliff Robinson, whom Phoenix signed to a free-agent deal in the offseason, drained a three-pointer of his own to knot the score with 1:05 left.

Sabonis and Manning traded layups before Chapman's 10-foot baseline jumper fell well off the mark as time expired in the third overtime.

Robinson finished with 15 points but committed eight turnovers in his first game against his former team. Kidd chipped in 16 assists and Manning pulled down 10 rebounds.

Phoenix, which is 7-2 in nine overtime games against Portland, made 50 percent (51-of-102) from the field. Portland hit 40 percent (47-of-117).
