Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers made believers out of the Utah Jazz.

Rasheed Wallace scored 22 points off the bench, including two foul shots with 17 seconds remaining in double overtime, as the Trail Blazers outlasted the Jazz, 102-100, in a battle of the NBA's top two teams.

"Our guys did such a great job of playing with composure in those overtimes and down the stretch," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I can't say enough good things about the way we played defensively. All year, we've come up with big stops."

Wallace's foul shots gave the Blazers a 101-100 lead. On Utah's next possession, the Jazz got the ball inside to Greg Foster. But the center hesitated going up for a shot and got tied up underneath the basket, turning the ball back over to Portland with three seconds remaining.

Damon Stoudamire made 1-of-2 from the line a second later, giving the Jazz a chance to force a third overtime. Bryon Russell took a pass from Karl Malone in the left corner, but stumbled and never got a shot off.

"We're growing up," Portland forward Brian Grant said. "We are getting a little bit of what Utah has had for the last five years -- a little leadership, a little poise, veteran play down the stretch. It's a big character win."

Portland moved one game ahead of second-place Seattle in the Pacific Division and closed within a half game of Utah for the NBA's best record. The Blazers improved to 6-0 at the Rose Garden, joining Utah and Orlando as the only unbeaten home teams.

"The crowd was in it for all six quarters," Wallace said. "That helped us. When it got loud in here, they couldn't hear the plays that (Utah) coach (Jerry) Sloan was calling. The fans definitely played a big part and I think they helped us win."

"You aren't going to win when you turn the ball over and give up offensive rebounds the way we did," Sloan added. "We didn't deserve to win. We had 25 turnovers. It looked like we had never seen each other. They also had 15 offensive rebounds."

After Utah opened a 90-86 lead on John Stockton's baseline jumper with 1:45 remaining in the fourth quarter, Wallace hit a jumper 15 seconds later to pull the Trail Blazers within a bucket.

Wallace stripped Malone at the top of the key, leading to Isaiah Rider's fast-break basket with 46 seconds remaining. Portland had a chance to win in regulation, but Walt Williams missed a jumper from the left wing with two seconds remaining.

The Jazz jumped ahead, 94-90, in the first overtime on Malone's two free throws and Jeff Hornacek's jumper. But the Blazers forced a second extra session on Stoudamire's jumper with 19 seconds left.

Malone missed a baseline jumper and Rider rebounded with four seconds remaining. He did not call timeout and missed a desperation heave from behind midcourt as time ran out.

Rider's 3-pointer gave the Blazers a 99-96 lead with 3:11 left in the second overtime, but Foster's jumper with 2:11 to play and Russell's two foul shots with 35 seconds remaining gave the Jazz their last lead at 101-100.

"We had good moments and bad moments but we didn't finish," Stockton said. "We had opportunities, and that's the part that is disheartening."

The game, played with playoff-like intensity, featured 22 ties and 29 lead changes, including three in double overtime. Neither team led by more than six points.

Rider finished with 18 points for the Blazers, who had seven players in double figures, including all five starters. Portland, which opened the season 2-2, won for the eighth time in nine games despite shooting just 39 percent (35-of-89) from the field.

"If you would have told me we would have played a team like Utah, only shoot 39 percent and have a chance to win it, I would have been really surprised," Dunleavy said. "It was a very big game. We treated it as a big game because it was a game to see where we are."

Hornacek scored 23 points and Malone had 20 for the Jazz, who lost despite shooting 88 percent (22-of-25) from the foul line.

"We should have been blown out of this game the way we played," Russell said. "Despite the turnovers, we still had a chance to win it. Things happen like that and life goes on. You just got to get ready for the next game."
