GAME RECAP

Isaiah Rider came off the bench to score 22 of his 28 points in the second half and Rasheed Wallace added 14 as the Portland Trail Blazers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 96-86 victory over the Utah Jazz, who had won seven in a row.

Rider hit a pair of key three-pointers in the fourth quarter, when he netted 12 points. After extending the Blazers' lead to 74-67 early in the period, he connected from behind the arc with 23 seconds left to turn back a late run by the Jazz.

"It was a timely win for us against a quality team," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "I was very pleased with our effort tonight. J.R. played great, our guys did a good job of handling the momentum swings and we did an excellent job at the defensive end."

Karl Malone had 23 points and 15 rebounds and Jeff Hornacek added 16 points for Utah, which closed within a point early in the fourth quarter before falling to the Blazers for the third time this season.

Rider hit 10-of-15 from the field, including three three-pointers and Gary Trent chipped in with 12 points and 11 rebounds for Portland, which hit 46 percent (31-of-68) of its shots and held a 42-36 rebounding edge.

"I can shoot the ball a lot better than I've been shooting, I'm not happy with my overall play," said Rider. "I didn't think I especially had my rhythm, but then things started to fall."

Malone scored nine of his points in the first quarter as the Jazz grabbed a 20-16 lead. Portland trailed 21-16 in the second until Rider ignited an 8-0 run with a pair of free throws and a basket. Jermaine O'Neal scored and Wallace capped the spurt with a bucket, giving the Blazers a 26-21 edge with 8:31 to play.

Utah fought back and took its last lead at 36-34 on Malone's baseline jumper, but the Blazers answered and took a 42-40 halftime advantage.

Both teams relied heavily on their benches for scoring. The Jazz, paced by Antoine Carr's 12 points and Bryon Russell's 11, got 30 points from their reserves. Rider played 32 minutes to lead a 44-point effort from the Blazers' substitutes.

"They're one of the teams that are able to counter a lot of the things we do," Carr said. "We have to compete harder, we have to do a lot of things."

Portland opened up the third quarter with an 11-4 spurt to take a 53-44 lead, but the Jazz answered and cut the deficit to 64-63 after three. The teams traded buckets to open the fourth before the Blazers scored eight of the next 10 points, capped by Rider's three-pointer with 8:12 to go.

Hornacek, who had been quiet most of the way, heated up shortly thereafter, scoring all eight straight points for the Jazz to bring them within 89-84 with 51 seconds remaining. But Rider iced it from behind the arc as the Blazers snapped their longest skid of the season.

Utah coach Jerry Sloan was ejected after picking up two technical fouls with 9:44 to go in the third quarter.

"I'm a pretty emotional persion, I always have been, maybe a little too much sometimes," Sloan said. "I just go on what I see. We didn't have much life. It looked to me like they had a little bit more energy than we did, like they wanted to win the game more than we did."

The Blazers clinched a win in their season series with Utah for the first time since the 1990-91 campaign.
