GAME RECAP

Rasheed Wallace scored 10 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as the Portland Trail Blazers blew a 14-point halftime lead but recovered to post a 93-85 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Isaiah Rider scored 15 points and Arvydas Sabonis also had 14 for the Blazers, who have won three straight games. Portland was held to a season-low 12 points in the third quarter, but outscored the Pacers 29-17 in the fourth.

Reggie Miller netted 16 points and Chris Mullin and Rik Smits had 14 apiece for the Pacers, who lost the final two games of their five-game road trip. Indiana had won five straight on the road before Monday's loss in Utah.

"It's obvious we were dead-legged," Indiana coach Larry Bird said. "We were down 14 at half, did a good job in the third quarter, then we turned the ball over down the stretch. It's one of those NBA games when our guys didn't come to play tonight.

"We'll make some changes down the stretch, no question about that," Bird continued. "I've seen enough of it, same guys making the same mistakes. We're going to come to play every night or I'm going to make some changes."

Indiana led for the last time at 74-72 with just under eight minutes to play. But Kenny Anderson, who returned to the lineup after missing the last two games with an ankle injury, tied the game with a bucket with 7:44 remaining and Stacey Augmon made a pair of free throws 26 seconds later to give Portland the lead for good.

Rider buried a three-pointer for a 79-74 lead before Fred Hoiberg's bucket cut it to 79-76 with 6:08 left. Jermaine O'Neal's layup pushed it to 81-76, and after a free throw by Dale Davis, Anderson nailed a three-pointer to extend the lead to 84-77.

"It feels good to be out there playing with the team," Anderson said. "The first half I was just trying to find myself and my wind. When the game is on the line, I like to be playing. I want to be the go-to guy when things are tough. Be the hero or the goat or whatever, but be out there when the game is on the line."

Antonio Davis' free throw with 3:27 to play brought Indiana within 84-78, but Wallace, who made his last five shots, made consecutive baskets to cap a 16-4 burst and give Portland an 88-78 cushion with 2:27 to play.

"This is a real nice win, not only because Indiana has been a hot team, but they have good size, play good defense and they usually are very difficult when they have the lead," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I was really pleased with the way we came back."

Gary Trent had 10 points in the first quarter, helping Portland race to a 30-19 lead. The Blazers scored seven of the first nine points of the second quarter to extend their lead to 37-21 before settling for a 52-38 halftime lead. Sabonis had seven points in each of the first two periods.

But Indiana opened the third quarter with a 20-2 burst, fueled by six points from Dale Davis and five from Mullin, to open a 58-54 lead with 5:55 remaining in the period. Davis finished with eight and Mullin seven in the quarter as the Pacers brought a 68-64 lead into the final period.

Trent finished with 13 points and Anderson 10 for the Blazers, who shot 48.5 percent (33-for-68) from the field and held a 40-33 rebounding advantage.

Dale Davis collected 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who shot 42 percent (31-of-74) and made just 19-of-31 free throws (61 percent).
