GAME RECAP

Isaiah Rider scored 28 points and Gary Trent came off the bench to add 21 and 11 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Atlanta Hawks for the first time in over three years, 92-77.

Rasheed Wallace tallied 18 points for Portland, which had lost its last six meetings with the Hawks since January 3rd, 1995 but finished 3-1 on its road trip. The Trail Blazers were without center Arvydas Sabonis, who had back spasms.

"It was a great win for us, our fourth game in five nights," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "To come into the game and not know until we got here that Sabonis wasn't going to play for us. We started out the game and we got down big. It would have been one of those easy things for a team to say `We don't have our big fella tonight, we didn't have the horse, we got two games on the road trip, we're happy about, it's already a good road trip, you go 2-2.' But instead our guys really hung tough and came back from an early deficit and decided, 'Hey, we're going to defend and keep ourselves in the game and find a way to win' and we really did that."

Wallace and Rider each scored four points as the Blazers ended the opening period with a 13-2 run to take the lead for good. Teenager Jermaine O'Neal's jumper capped the run, giving Portland a 19-18 edge with 26 seconds left.

"This was the last game of our road trip, we lost to Philly," said Trent. "We had too many turnovers in that game and gave them too many fast-break points. We concentrated, came in here and got ourselves some rest last night and came out focused and ready to play today. I just come in and play. If I score I score, if I rebound, I rebound. I just come in and try to fulfill my role and just be a winner."

Christian Laettner scored 16 points and Tyrone Corbin added 10 for the Hawks, who lost their third straight game. Atlanta opened a 16-6 lead when Laettner hit a pair of free throws with 4:40 to go. Hawks guard Steve Smith was held scoreless in the first half and finished with eight points, his lowest output since he was held to five on November 18th in a 98-89 overtime win against Washington.

"We're definitely not hitting shots and not playing like we were playing," Smith said. "Right now we're just getting beat all around, defensively, rebounding and turnovers. The big thing for us is how well and how quickly we can bounce back."

Trent opened the second quarter with a pair of free throws and Rider hit a 14-footer to give the Blazers a 23-18 advantage 55 seconds into the period. Laettner made a 14-footer to cut Portland's lead to 23-22 with 10:14 remaining. Trent answered with a 14-footer but the Hawks came within one point again when Dikembe Mutombo hit a pair of free throws with 5:38 left.

Trent made a pair of free throws to give the Blazers a 32-29 lead with 5:17 left in the first half and he capped a 16-5 run with a driving layup for a 46-34 advantage just 2.8 seconds before halftime.

The Hawks closed to 55-46 when Mookie Blaylock made a layup with 5:09 left in the third. But Kenny Anderson answered with a driving layup to ignite an 8-1 spurt and the Blazers maintained at least a 10-point lead thereafter.

Portland took its biggest advantage at 84-63 when Trent made two free throws with 4:26 to play.

Anderson scored 12 points and O'Neal added seven and four blocks for the Blazers, who shot 43 percent (33-of-76) from the field and made 24-of-29 free throws. Trent was 11-of-13 from the line.

The Hawks were an awful 33 percent (27-of-82) from the field. Smith and Mookie Blaylock were each 3-of-13 and Alan Henderson shot 2-of-12.
