GAME RECAP

Isaiah Rider scored 24 points and keyed a pair of extended runs in the middle quarters as the Portland Trail Blazers cruised to a 90-73 rout of the fading Sacramento Kings.

Former King Brian Grant collected 19 points and 14 rebounds for Portland, which had lost its last seven trips to Sacramento dating back to November 10th, 1994. Damon Stoudamire handed out 12 assists in his second game back off the injured list.

Despite the return of Mitch Richmond, the Kings suffered their 10th straight loss and were officially eliminated from the playoffs when Minnesota beat the Los Angeles Clippers. The Kings' skid is their second-longest since moving to Sacramento. They dropped 11 in a row from February 5th-26th, 1996.

"This was probably our worst performance of the year," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "Appropriately, I think this loss officially eliminates us from the playoffs. We just didn't bring it tonight, we didn't have anything. We didn't bring it as far as execution-wise, intensity-wise, nothing. Give Portland credit, they sniffed out that we didn't want it and they took control."

Richmond, who had missed three games with a sore knee, started and scored 10 points. Corliss Williamson led Sacramento with 16 points.

Sacramento led for the final time at 28-26 on an 18-foot jumper by Lawrence Funderburke with 7:24 left in the second quarter. But after a five-footer by Grant, Rider knocked down a seven-footer with 5:50 remaining in the period to give Portland the lead for good and buried a three-pointer 32 seconds later for a 33-28 advantage.

Rider hit another jumper with 4:26 remaining in the half, and after a Sacramento basket, he made two free throws to give him nine straight Portland points and push the lead to 37-30. Grant's layup with 59 seconds left in the half capped a 19-4 spurt and gave the Blazers a 45-32 cushion.

"We did a really good job defensively tonight, which created missed shot opportunities," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "The difference tonight was that we controlled the boards and Isaiah made some big shots for us and opened it up for us on the inside."

Sacramento scored the first four points of the third quarter to cut a 12-point halftime deficit to 47-39 on Richmond's layup 48 seconds into the period. But the Blazers put the game out of reach by scoring 22 of the next 28 points to open a 68-45 bulge on a free throw by Stacey Augmon with 3:19 left in the third. Rider scored eight points in that surge, while Grant and Stoudamire had six each.

"We were out running, doing the things we wanted to do," Stoudamire said. "Everything was clicking for us tonight, the inside and the outside. It was just a good all-around game for us."

Arvydas Sabonis had 10 points and 10 rebounds and Kelvin Cato also had 10 points for the Blazers, who led by as much as 26 points in the fourth quarter. Portland shot just 39 percent (35-of-89) from the field but outrebounded Sacramento, 56-37.

Terry Dehere finished with 13 points for the Kings, who shot only 38 percent (29-of-77).
