GAME RECAP

David Wesley's jumper with 2.2 seconds remaining lifted the Charlotte Hornets to a 91-89 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers and a sweep of their two-game season series.

Portland led 66-65 after three quarters and took the largest lead of the fourth period at 89-85 on Arvydas Sabonis' free throw with 81 seconds to play. Charlotte's Anthony Mason answered with a foul shot 21 seconds later and Glen Rice's three-pointer evened the score with 39.3 seconds remaining.

Sabonis then missed a three-pointer, but Isaiah Rider grabbed the rebound and Portland re-set its offense. The Blazers worked the ball to Kenny Anderson, who was stripped of the ball by Wesley as he was going up for a jumper.

Bobby Phills brought the ball back downcourt and found Wesley at the top of the key, where he converted the game-winner on a favorable bounce. Following a timeout, the Blazers inbounded the ball to Rider, who got a good look from the side, but was off on a jumper.

"I read it right and got a small hand on it, enough to get it out of his hand," said Wesley about his steal. "It was good penetration by Bobby Phills. It left me wide open because they had to collapse. Down the stretch we got three good stops and baskets, and that's important in close games."

"I thought it was going, I thought I had a nice shot at it because it was such a close shot," said Rider. "I make that shot eight times out of 10. It just didn't fall for me this time."

Rice scored 25 points and Phills had 15 for the Hornets, who snapped a two-game skid. Charlotte won at home over Portland, 106-92, on November 19th, but still trails the all-time series, 16-6.

"We needed that one desperately," said Hornets coach Dave Cowens. "We've had our share of close games this year and the season's only a couple of months old. David Wesley finally hit a shot. He needed a confidence booster. Glen Rice is always a monster. If you give him a chance, he'll win a game for you. He's a great shooter."

Sabonis totaled 22 points and 13 rebounds, while Rider netted 19 points for Portland, which has dropped three of its last four. Anderson, who was a game-time decision due to a twisted left ankle, started and had 10 points and six assists.

"It's a disheartening way to lose a ballgame," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "In the final analysis, it came down to free throw shooting and their offensive rebounds. This was our toughest loss of the year. Charlotte is a quality team and we had them on the ropes, but we just didn't close them out."

Rider scored eight points in the first quarter and Portland used an 11-2 run at the end of the period to assume a 23-18 advantage. The lead was bumped to 47-38 at the intermission before Charlotte rallied with an 8-0 spurt, which was capped by Wesley's two foul shots with 7:34 left in the third, to cut it to 49-46.

Portland extended the margin to 56-48 less than two minutes later on Rasheed Wallace's dunk, but the Hornets chipped away and narrowed it to 66-65 on Corey Beck's 35-footer at the buzzer.

Mason finished with 14 points, 14 boards and seven assists, while Vlade Divac had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Hornets, who were 6-of-13 from three-point range.

Wallace tallied 14 points and Gary Trent had 13 for Portland, which had won four of five at home.
