Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- After staging second-half rallies in the first three games of their road trip, the Portland Trail Blazers tried a different approach in the finale.

The Trail Blazers squandered a big early lead but recovered for a 100-93 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves that completed a 3-1 road trip.

Rasheed Wallace drew a surprise start and responded with a season-high 22 points and solid defense on Kevin Garnett, who was plagued by foul trouble and finished with 17 points. Wallace also sank a 3-pointer in the middle of a 9-0 fourth-quarter run that sealed Portland's seventh win in eight games.

"Our versatility gives us a lot of good matchups," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I decided to use Rasheed in thr 2-spot tonight against Garnett. It's great to have another option at the 2-spot with Jimmy Jackson. We are a very deep team."

In the first half of road games against New Jersey, Charlotte and Washington, Portland trailed by at least 10 points before coming back in the second half, defeating the Nets and Wizards.

This time, the Timberwolves came back on the Blazers, erasing a 15-point second-quarter deficit. But they could not sustain it and lost their third straight game.

"I always told our players you are never good as you think you are, and never as bad. It's always in between," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "It's kind of where we are right now. Just like New York in the second half (Thursday) we beat ourselves with mental mistakes. That carried over into Toronto (Friday) and it carried over tonight."

Former Timberwolf Isaiah Rider returned from a one-game league suspension to score 17 points for Portland (9-3), which leads the Pacific Division. Rider missed the win at Washington after coming onto the court during an altercation in the contest at Charlotte.

Stephon Marbury had 25 points and a season-high 16 assists for the Wolves, who have allowed at least 100 points in each game of their losing streak.

The 6-11 Wallace can play all three frontcourt positions and got the call ahead of the 6-8 Walt Williams to match up with the 7-foot Garnett. Wallace wasted no time, scoring 14 points in the first period on a variety of dunks, hooks and jumpers as Portland raced to a 29-19 lead.

The Blazers opened their largest lead at 42-27 on a 3-pointer by Jimmy Jackson with 5:40 left in the second quarter.

Minnesota rallied behind Marbury's 10 second-quarter points and closed to 49-44 at halftime. The Wolves opened the third period with an 8-2 run and a free throw by Joe Smith gave them a 52-51 lead with 10:16 remaining.

That woke up Portland, which responded with a 20-6 spurt. With the shot-blocking Garnett on the bench with four fouls, the guards attacked the basket as Rider scored seven points and Damon Stoudamire five over the next five minutes. A 21-footer by Rider gave Portland a 71-58 lead with 5:38 remaining.

Garnett returned and Minnesota closed to 79-75 with 10:21 to go on a 3-pointer by Malik Sealy, who scored 13 points. Portland rattled off the next nine points, with Wallace sinking a bomb from the top of the circle and Kelvin Cato's jumper providing an 88-75 lead with 6:35 to go.

Minnesota again cut the deficit to four points but it never was a one-possession game.

"We beat a really good team tonight," Dunleavy said. "I like the way we are playing, but we can still get better. We have not quit in any game."

Stoudamire had 13 points and nine assists and Arvydas Sabonis had 13 and eight rebounds for the Blazers, who shot 47 percent (41-of-87) from the field and held a 45-35 rebounding edge.

"They were hitting their shots," Garnett said. "It just happens sometimes like that. The intensity was there, we had the fans in the game, but we just couldn't get the shots. We've got to find a way to cut this loss and start another winning streak."

Garnett had nine rebounds and four blocks before fouling out. Smith and Anthony Peeler scored 11 points apiece for the Wolves, who shot 42 percent (35-of-83) but made just 1-of-11 from behind the arc.
