GAME RECAP

Kenny Anderson took an inbounds pass from Rasheed Wallace and buried a foul-line jumper at the buzzer to give the Portland Trail Blazers an 86-84 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Isaiah Rider scored 24 points and Wallace added 17 for Portland, which led 78-65 with just 8:18 to play before Cleveland ran off 11 straight points to come within two with 3:03 remaining.

"It was a play we use a lot," said Anderson. "It was (called) a 4-5 and its a play we have been using all year. I got a good look. Rasheed threw a good pass and Brevin Knight bit on it and I had three seconds left. I got the man up and I just shot it. I wasn't shooting real well tonight but on the release the rotation was pretty good. That is just something (game-winning shots) I liked being called upon (for).

The Cavaliers had a chance to take the lead with just under 10 seconds to play, but Cedric Henderson missed the front end of two foul shots before tying the game at 84-84 with the second.

"I thought the first free throw was good," said Henderson. "I then took a deep breath and I knew I had to make the second one."

Shawn Kemp had a season-high 31 points and 20 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who lost for the fifth time in seven games and for the third straight time at home. Cleveland had not lost three straight at Gund Arena since it dropped four in a row last season from January 8th-23rd.

Cleveland shot just 39 percent (31-of-79) from the field, but did connect on 18-of-21 from the line. Portland was a little better from the floor, shooting 47.5 percent (38-of-80), but only attempted four free throws -- a new team record.

The Trail Blazers, who made all four of their attempts, erased their previous mark of getting to the free throw line just eight times in a contest, most recently in 1975.

After falling behind 10 in the first quarter and trailing by as many as 18 midway through the second quarter, the Cavs fought their way back behind 57 percent (31-of-79) shooting in the second half, including four three-pointers in the final period.

Kemp started the 11-0 run in the fourth period with a foul shot and Wesley Person followed with a three-pointer to bring Cleveland within 78-69 with 7:52 to play. Kemp then sandwiched Danny Ferry's three-pointer with two jumpers, cutting the deficit to two and setting up the final frantic minutes.

"Man it was rough out there," said Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy. The Cavaliers are a terrific team. They got a nice complement of guys who can stroke the ball. They're penetrators, they can drive, kick and shoot it. And then you've got Shawn Kemp in the post."

Anderson briefly gave the Blazers control with a three, but Brevin Knight followed with two from the line for the Cavs. Ferry answered Gary Trent's three-pointer with a three of his own, and Kemp's layup cut Portland's lead to 84-83.

Henderson hit the free throw to tie the game, and after two timeouts, a foul by Person, and a delay of game call on the Cavaliers, Portland ran the game-winning play.

"That was the way we drew it up, looking for Anderson over the top," said Dunleavy on the game-winning play. "Other options were depending on how it is played. I thought we had great execution. Wallace made a great pass, (Arvydas) Sabonis made a great pick, and Anderson obviously made a great shot.

With the help of Kemp, Cleveland held a commanding 45-29 rebounding advantage, but committed 18 turnovers that led to 24 Portland points. The Trail Blazers had 17 turnovers, with the Cavs taking advantage for 19 points.
