GAME RECAP

Rookies Alvin Williams and Kelvin Cato fueled a second-half run that lifted the Portland Trail Blazers to their fourth straight victory, 96-86 over the struggling Philadelphia 76ers.

Williams, a second-round pick from Villanova, scored six of his 13 points in an 11-0 run that began late in the third quarter. He also grabbed seven rebounds.

Cato, a first-round pick from Iowa State, had a career-high 14 points, nine rebounds and seven blocks. He capped the burst with two free throws, giving Portland its largest lead, 82-68, with 8:46 remaining.

Brian Grant had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who also have won four straight at home. Portland was without center Arvydas Sabonis, who was a late scratch with an injured hand, and reserve swingman Vincent Askew, who was benched for a violation of team rules.

"We didn't know until game that Sabonis couldn't go," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Kelvin Cato stepped up in the end. He just gave us a terrific game. I can't say enough about the contributions he and Alvin Williams are making to our team."

"It was an opportunity for me to showcase my talents a little longer in the game," Cato said. "It feels good to get a start, but as long as I have an opportunity to play and let everybody see I can play, I'm happy. I'm having fun. I'm just going to soak it in."

Allen Iverson had 21 points and eight assists and rookie Tim Thomas scored 18 points for the 76ers, who have lost eight of nine games and dropped to 1-2 on their seven-game road trip. Philadelphia played without forward Derrick Coleman, who sat out the first of his two-game suspension for his part in a fight with Sacramento forward Corliss Williamson on Sunday.

"Alvin Williams gave them a big lift," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "The Blazers were just too big. Cato and Brian Grant played great and Portland's guard play was really good."

The Sixers trailed by 10 points in the second quarter but cut the deficit to 71-68 in the closing seconds of the third period on a layup by Mark Davis. But Williams closed the quarter with a basket, then had the first two hoops of the fourth quarter to extend the lead to nine points.

"I have a lot of confidence in Alvin," Dunleavy said. "He's an excellent ballhandler. He's poised and makes good decisions and he's very good defensively."

"We cut it to three at the start of the fourth quarter and Spoon (Clarence Weatherspoon) had a a wide-open layup and missed," Brown said. "That's the way it goes. We don't make shots and we stop guarding."

Kenny Anderson made a jumper and free throw before Cato sank two from the line to cap the run.

"Cato's going to be great," said Anderson, who scored 11 points. "He's going to be a terror in this league for years to come. He's definitely a defensive stopper."

Gary Trent scored 11 points and Rasheed Wallace and Isaiah Rider added 10 apiece for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (36-of-79) from the field and had seven players in double figures. Portland held a 46-43 edge in rebounds.

"It's always good when you get everybody contributing," Grant said. "We won on the boards tonight. It was a good team effort."

Jimmy Jackson scored 12 points and Davis added 10 for the Sixers, who shot under 40 percent (31-of-79). Iverson committed eight of Philadelphia's 19 turnovers.

"Offensively, they pounded it inside and got some offensive rebounds and easy baskets on the break," Jackson said. "It's a growing situation for this team. We have to play all 48 minutes as hard as we can and as smart as we can."

Grant scored 10 points and Cato eight as Portland opened a 48-45 lead at halftime. Iverson kept Philadelphia close with 13 points.

The Blazers took the lead for good at 57-56 on a free throw by Rider with seven minutes left in the third quarter and Wallace capped a 9-0 burst with a dunk that extended the advantage to 63-56 with 5:05 remaining.
