Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers posted another dominant defensive effort and improved upon the league's best record by coasting to their seventh straight victory, 92-73 over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Jimmy Jackson had 21 points and seven rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who limited Vancouver to only 34 percent (25-of-73) from the field and made 12 steals while forcing 20 turnovers. On Sunday, Portland held Houston to 31 percent shooting and forced 19 turnovers in a 111-71 rout of the Rockets.

"It's important to keep trying to put pressure on them, force them to take bad shots," Jackson said.

The Blazers scored the first six points of this game, including two free throws and a dunk by Brian Grant, and never trailed. They coasted to their 12th win in 13 games and ran their record to 14-3, one game better than Utah and Orlando for the NBA's top mark.

"(Our) goals are to have homecourt in the playoffs, advance and win a championship," said Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy.

Grant contributed 14 points and nine rebounds and was one of six players to score in double figures for Portland, which is riding its longest winning streak since an 11-game run from February 28-March 20, 1997.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 19 points to pace the Grizzlies, who have dropped eight in a row. They also were blown out by the Blazers, 95-76, on February 8.

The injury-plagued Grizzlies played without starting center Tony Massenburg, starting guard Doug West and reserve guard Lee Mayberry. The injuries to West and Mayberry allowed Felipe Lopez to make his first career start, joining fellow rookie Mike Bibby in Vancouver's starting backcourt.

Lopez had 12 points, six boards and three steals, while Bibby added 11 points and five assists.

"I wish it could happen when we are winning," Lopez said of his first start. "We all have to improve. We've just gotta get better."

Damon Stoudamire, Bibby's counterpart at the point, had 10 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and was impressed by the play of the second overall pick.

"He's improved a great deal since the beginning of the season," Stoudamire said. "He attacked the basket far more tonight. He's starting to develop, and he's going to get a whole lot better."

Jackson came off a Blazers' bench that had 42 points and 27 rebounds, compared to 20 points and 10 boards by the Grizzlies' reserves. Rasheed Wallace chipped in 10 points and six rebounds off the bench for Portland.

"Depth is our key. Our bench can maintain or often increase a lead," Jackson said. "Winning is the key. I knew it was going to be a sacrifice (coming off the bench), but it's paying dividends. I'm on the best team in the league."

Jackson scored the Blazers' final nine points of the opening period, helping build a 25-15 lead. Stoudamire fed Jackson for a layup that opened a 41-27 cushion with 2:27 left in the second quarter.

Bibby had five points in a 10-3 spurt to close the period as Vancouver pulled within 44-37 at halftime.

But the Grizzlies made only 8-of-22 shots from the field in the third quarter, and the Blazers took a 60-45 lead with 6:09 remaining on consecutive 3-pointers by Walt Williams and Stoudamire. Stoudamire scored all of his points in the third, helping Portland to a 72-58 advantage.

Bothered recently by a bruised right foot, he was able to sit most of the fourth quarter as the reserves mopped up. Portland led by at least 14 points throughout the final period and grabbed its largest advantage, 88-66, on a jumper by John Crotty with three minutes to play.

Williams chipped in 11 points and four steals and fellow starter Arvydas Sabonis had 10 points and five assists. Leading scorer Isaiah Rider, averaging nearly 18 points per game, battled early foul trouble and managed only five points.

Bryant Reeves, who has played poorly this season after entering camp well overweight, received a shower of boos from the home crowd. He was scoreless until getting five meaningless points in the final 7 1/2 minutes, finishing 2-of-7 from the field with five rebounds and five turnovers.

"We're just not getting the job done, myself included," Reeves said. "It's tough hearing the boos. I've got to work through it and keep on going and get this team back on the rails."
