GAME RECAP

Anfernee Hardaway sank two crucial free throws and finished with 29 points and Bo Outlaw atoned for a late turnover with a key defensive play in the final seconds as the Orlando Magic pulled out an 89-88 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Rony Seikaly, who had 14 points and 10 rebounds, made two free throws to cap a 13-3 run and give Orlando an 84-74 lead with 5:10 to play. Isaiah Rider answered with a four-point play, the 15th in Blazers history, to spark an 11-0 spurt. He scored nine of his 33 points during the run, including a layup with 2:50 remaining that put Portland in front, 85-84.

Hardaway made 1-of-2 from the foul line before Outlaw sank a free throw. He missed the second, but teammate Derek Strong was fouled going for the rebound. Strong hit two more from the stripe, building an 88-85 edge.

Hardaway hit another free throw with 1:01 to play before Brian Grant sank a free throw and a turnaround jumper in the final minute to pull Portland within one.

On the next possession, Hardaway was off the mark with a three-pointer but Outlaw got the rebound. As he tried a follow shot, Outlaw traveled, giving the ball back to the Blazers with 2.6 seconds left.

Stacy Augmon threw the inbounds pass from midcourt, but Darrell Armstrong knocked it away and Outlaw chased down the loose ball, helping secure the Magic's fifth victory in the last six road games.

"I was glad that anybody but them caught it," Outlaw said. "I didn't want them to throw the ball at the rim the way it was going in tonight. It might have gone in if J.R. (Rider) had caught it."

Outlaw and Nick Anderson scored 11 points apiece for Orlando, which has won eight of its last 10 games and four in a row against Portland.

"We couldn't hold on to a 10-point lead and almost gave the game away," Magic coach Chuck Daly said.

"We've been losing to all the elite teams in the NBA. We took the challenge tonight to come out and try to play against a good Portland team on their home floor," Hardaway added. "We saw how we sized up, we did well and won a great game."

Rider was not as complimentary toward Orlando.

"The Magic are not the same without Shaq. We need to beat a team like that," he said. "They are mediocre and we need to get it done. Against the Lakers or Indiana, maybe you are satisfied with a one-point loss, but not against Orlando."

Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy was forced to play rookie guard Alvin Williams a career-high 40 minutes. Williams set career highs with 14 points and nine assists, playing in place of point guards Kenny Anderson and John Crotty. Anderson started but left after five minutes with a thigh bruise. Crotty was placed on the injured list before the game with a sore right knee and was replaced by rookie Rick Brunson, who played three minutes.

"When you have people out like Kenny Anderson, you can't make mistakes on the little things," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I felt our defense improved in the second half, but we just didn't execute well enough."

Grant had 13 points and eight rebounds for Portland, but fellow starting forward Rasheed Wallace was just 2-of-8 from the field and finished with five points, nine boards and four blocks. Center Arvydas Sabonis fouled out with nine points and 10 rebounds as the Blazers dropped their second straight home game.

Rider, who was 12-of-20 from the floor, became the first Blazer to convert a four-point play since James Robinson on February 3rd, 1995 against Minnesota.

The last of Anderson's three three-pointers sparked a 13-3 spurt, which snapped a 71-71 tie with 9:33 to play. Armstrong scored all four of his points during the run.

Hardaway scored 15 of his 21 first-half points in the opening quarter, helping Orlando to a 45-42 hafltime edge. His status was questionable due to tendinitis in his left knee, an injury that forced him to miss five games last month.

"Penny was spectacular. This was one of his great games," Daly said. "He didn't shoot around today and we didn't know if he would play until we got to the arena tonight."
