GAME RECAP

Isaiah Rider scored 33 points as the Portland Trail Blazers blew a 22-point first-half lead but recovered for a 98-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Walt Williams added 16 points, making 4-of-8 three-pointers, and Arvydas Sabonis contributed 12 and 14 rebounds for Portland, which returned home from a 1-2 road trip that included the second-worst loss in NBA history -- a 124-59 setback at Indiana on Friday. The Trail Blazers hit 25-of-29 free throws, including 16-of-18 in the final period.

"A very good start and end," Sabonis said. "I don't know what happened in the middle of the game. But we finished good defensively. Maybe now we are playing better."

Jason Kidd had 23 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists and Danny Manning scored 15 points for the Suns, who lost for the fourth time in five games.

Phoenix took its first lead when Manning had a lay-in to break a 77-77 tie with 6:14 to go in the fourth quarter. Rex Chapman, who scored 14 points, had a reverse dunk to give the Suns their final lead, 83-82, with 4:16 remaining. Rider completed a four-point play to put the Blazers ahead for good, 86-83, with 3:59 left.

"We played well in the second half but when we needed stops Portland hurt us," said Phoenix coach Danny Ainge. "We definitely had a chance to pull this one out. Rider got them going with his four-point play. We just dug ourselves a hole and couldn't get out of it."

"There is no way I personally was going to let them win the game," Rider said. "It's just terrible to let a team come from 20 behind in a must-win situation."

Portland built the lead to 94-87 on a hook shot by Sabonis with 55 seconds left. But Kidd made a pair of free throws around a foul shot by Rasheed Wallace to cut the deficit to 95-93 with 18.9 seconds to go. Rider converted two free throws one second later for a 97-93 advantage. After Phoenix failed to score on its next possession, Stacey Augmon's free throw with six seconds left accounted for the final margin.

Rider had nine points in the first quarter as Portland shot 52 percent (12-for-23) to take a 28-17 advantage. Williams capped a 9-0 surge with a three-pointer, stretching the Blazers' cushion to 45-26 with 5:27 left in the second. A three-pointer by Williams gave the Blazers their biggest lead of the game, 53-31, just 2 1/2 minutes later. Phoenix closed the period with a 6-0 burst, creeping within 55-40 on Manning's layup with 14.8 seconds left.

"We had too little, too late in the second half," Chapman said. "Our defense was terrible in the first half. We let Walt Williams sit out there like a shooting gallery and he can really shoot them. We weren't really smart."

Dennis Scott hit a 20-footer to cap a 7-1 spurt and cut Portland's lead to 58-49 with 8:19 left in the third. The Blazers took a 73-66 lead into the final period.
