Game Recap

Antonio McDyess scored 22 of his 23 points in the first three quarters, then collected five rebounds and three blocks in the final period as the Phoenix Suns rallied for a 90-83 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

McDyess finished with 13 rebounds, a season-best six blocks and tied a season high with five steals. Although he was held to one point in the fourth quarter, he led Phoenix to a 14-10 edge on the boards against the bigger Trail Blazers.

"That could be my best game (this season)," McDyess said. "I came out very energetic. I was really into the game at the beginning and I stayed comfortable and relaxed and I think that did the job."

Danny Manning, Jason Kidd and Kevin Johnson scored just 11 points apiece but combined for 17 in the final period to pick up the slack for McDyess as the Suns won their fourth straight game.

Isaiah Rider drained a three-pointer to give Portland a 73-66 lead with 8:40 to play, but Phoenix responded with an 18-4 burst to take control. Johnson scored five points in that run and recorded one of his nine assists when he fed Rex Chapman for a reverse layup to cap it, building an 84-77 lead with 1:43 to go.

McDyess came up with a key block in the lane on Brian Grant with 2:04 to go, leading to Chapman's lay-in.

"Our defense was really working tonight," Suns coach Danny Ainge said. "McDyess was all over the place. We're a little small in the interior and we have to rotate."

Grant had 23 points and 12 rebounds and Rider added 23 and 10 as Portland watched its four-game winning streak in Phoenix come to an end.

"It was a good game that we definitely should have won," Grant said. "We missed a few layups and a bunch of opportunities down the stretch. They got momentum off of our mistakes and were able to score."

The Suns remained 2 1/2 games behind San Antonio for fourth place in the Western Conference and homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. They are eight games in front of the sixth-place Trail Blazers, who played their second straight game without injured starting center Arvydas Sabonis.

Chapman chipped in 12 points after missing the last four games with a strained groin for Phoenix (49-25), which has won eight of its last nine home games and needs just one more victory to record its 12th 50-win season.

"It's always hard coming back no matter how much time you get," said Chapman. "I had butterfingers a few times tonight, but Danny (Ainge) stayed with me and I'm just thankful to be back out and feeling good."

One of Rider's five three-pointers gave Portland a 58-51 lead midway through the third quarter. Despite getting outrebounded, 16-7, in the period, the Suns cut the deficit to two by scoring the final five points. McDyess, who had eight points in the third, buried a 17-footer, Mark Bryant made a foul shot and Kidd hit a short jumper to make it 64-62 heading into the fourth.

Grant sank a pair of free throws to increase the advantage to 70-62, but Cliff Robinson and Manning answered with two foul shots apiece. Rider answered with the three-pointer, but those were his only points of the final period.

Dennis Scott, whose three-pointer highlighted the 18-4 run, made a free throw and Kidd added a pair with 20 seconds left to help Phoenix secure the victory. Phoenix was 11-of-13 from the line in the fourth and 21-of-27 overall.

Manning pulled down 10 rebounds as the Suns battled to a 42-42 deadlock on the boards. Scott blocked a season-high three shots and Phoenix collected 11 blocks overall to Portland's three. Led by Johnson, the Suns' bench outscored the Blazers' bench, 25-9.

"Off their bench, they really outscored us," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I thought bench scoring was a big difference in the game. We missed some easy shots down the stretch that allowed them to get out there and go."

Rasheed Wallace contributed 16 points and 10 rebounds while Damon Stoudamire added 11 points and 14 assists for the Trail Blazers, who were outscored in the paint, 38-30.

Jermaine O'Neal, who started in place of Sabonis, Kelvin Cato and Alton Lister -- the three centers Portland had available -- combined for three points on 1-of-8 shooting and five rebounds in 40 minutes.

Phoenix managed to split the season series, 2-2, and won for just the third time in the last nine meetings overall. The Suns had not beaten the Blazers at home since November 18th, 1995.
