GAME RECAP

Arvydas Sabonis scored 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers spoiled Kenny Anderson's return to Portland with a 121-96 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Damon Stoudamire, who was acquired in the six-player deal from the Toronto Raptors for Anderson nine days ago, added 17 points and nine assists for the Trail Blazers, who have won their last five home meetings against Boston, dating back to the 1992-93 season.

"I was just playing ball," Stoudamire said. "I think he (Anderson) wanted to attack me, but it wasn't a big deal. The game wasn't one-on-one between me and Kenny. I'm happy we got the win."

Ron Mercer matched his season-high with 28 points and Antoine Walker had 17 for Boston, which finished its season-high eight-game road trip with a 3-5 mark. Anderson, who refused to report to the Raptors and was traded to the Celtics as part of a seven-player deal on Wednesday, added 14 points and eight assists.

"It's O.K. to be back here, but life goes on and I'm a Celtic now," commented Anderson on his return to Portland. "I left here with no bad blood but I'm fine. We lost the game and that's what counts."

Brian Grant scored eight of his 14 points in the first quarter, helping the Blazers to a 30-25 lead. Boston started the second quarter on an 8-2 run, taking its last lead at 33-32 on Mercer's layup.

Jermaine O'Neal answered with a layup at the 9:22 mark, putting the Blazers ahead for good at 34-33. Portland closed the half on a 20-8 burst for a 54-41 lead at intermission. Sabonis had 13 points in the half.

Portland put the game away in the third quarter. After Walker made a layup with 9:47 left, the Blazers used a 10-2 spurt, capped by Stacy Augmon's layup with 6:49 remaining for a 68-49 advantage.

Augmon, replacing Isaiah Rider in the lineup, who missed the game with the flu, finished with a season-high 16 points for the Blazers, who had seven players score in double figures.

Portland shot 55 percent (50-of-91) from the floor and held a 47-26 rebounding edge. Boston shot only 37.5 percent (38-of-85).

"We got physically overpowered by a good team," Boston coach Rick Pitino said. "Portland's shot blocking and size gave us tremendous problems. Our man-to-man defense was atrocious. They shot too high of a percentage which is a credit to them."
