GAME RECAP

Rasheed Wallace and Isaiah Rider scored 14 points apiece and the Portland Trail Blazers survived for an 82-79 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, who had a seven-game winning streak snapped.

The Trail Blazers held an 81-76 lead, but a pair of free throws by rookie Tim Duncan with 48 seconds left got the Spurs within 81-78. Portland rookie Rick Brunson, a 92 percent foul shooter, then missed a pair with 10 seconds to go, leaving the door open for San Antonio.

The Spurs had a chance to tie when Cory Alexander was fouled by Kenny Anderson while attempting a three-pointer with 2.5 seconds to play. Alexander, a 76 percent foul shooter, made the first shot, but missed the second and intentionally missed the third. Arvydas Sabonis grabbed the rebound and sank one of two free throws to seal the win.

"He was trying to go for the ball when I was trying to shoot it," Alexander said, referring to Anderson's foul. "It took me by surprise. I can't remember the last time I had to miss one on purpose. I think I missed it O.K. but things didn't go our way."

"I was hustling after the ball out of bounds and ran into him," Anderson said. "I prayed that he would miss his free throws and he did. If not, we were going into overtime. Those plays, they happen. I just can't stand there and let the ball go by my nose."

Jaren Jackson led the Spurs with 17 points, while David Robinson contributed 16 and 17 rebounds. San Antonio's winning streak was its longest since a 17-game run from February 29th-March 31st, 1996.

The Blazers have won four of five following a three-game losing streak.

San Antonio held a 48-38 lead early in the third quarter before the Blazers got back in the game. Wallace hit a short jumper with 10:18 left starting a 13-2 burst, which culminated with an Anderson jumper at the 5:32 mark for the Blazers first lead of the game at 51-50. Rider led the charge in the run with five points.

After Avery Johnson hit a layup, giving San Antonio its last lead at 57-55 with 2:40 left in the third, the Blazers used a 10-2 spurt, capped by rookie Alvin Williams' 16-foot jumper with under a second left in the period for a 65-59 advantage.

The Spurs took a 14-5 lead six minutes into the opening quarter and they took their biggest lead of the opening period at 21-7 on Duncan's layup with 2:20 left. The Spurs limited Portland to only 22 percent (4-of-18) from the floor in the first quarter as they held a 23-10 lead.

Jackson had 11 points in the opening half as the Spurs held a 45-36 advantage at intermission.

The Blazers shot 40 percent (31-of-77) from the floor, while limiting San Antonio to 35 percent (28-for-79) from the field.

"No shoot, no win. You're not going to win too many games shooting 35 percent and 60 percent from the line," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We were atrocious shooting the basketball. Shooting was the difference in the game."

Duncan finished with 12 rebounds for the Spurs, who held a 49-47 rebounding edge over Portland which was led by Sabonis' 11 rebounds and Stacey Augmon's 10.
