Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Rasheed Wallace had a season-high 25 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks and helped the Portland Trail Blazers hold the Sacramento Kings scoreless for nearly five minutes down the stretch in an 88-78 victory.

Wallace had two key baskets during a 14-0 burst in the final minutes as the Blazers turned a one-point deficit into an 88-75 cushion with 30 seconds to play. Sacramento took its last lead, 75-74, on Vernon Maxwell's 3-pointer with 5:15 to go but did not score again until a meaningless 3-pointer by rookie Jason Williams with 24 seconds left.

"We just wanted it more tonight," Wallace said. "It was a team effort tonight. We watched a lot of film and watched how they operated, and we just did the best we could to slow them down. We just tried to stay in their faces and keep a body on them all night."

Isaiah Rider slapped guard Jon Barry in the second quarter, then slapped the Kings in the fourth, when he scored eight of his 14 points. Rider was booed by the Arco Arena crowd after getting whistled for a flagrant foul, which he received for striking Barry in the face during a minor altercation.

"Me and Barry had an altercation, and you know how the fans go from there," Rider said. "They're gonna stick with their guy, like our fans would stick with us. I understand where they were coming from. We got in an altercation and I put my hands on him, but he walked up and got in my face, and that's what the refs failed to see."

Rider, who seemed uncharacteristically subdued after the game, was replaced in the starting lineup by Jim Jackson for missing a morning shootaround.

"Coach made the decision to decide not to start me, and I totally understand it, and I'll just leave it at that," added Rider, who played 26 minutes off the bench.

The Blazers had a 24-13 edge in the final period after getting outscored by a 26-12 margin in the fourth quarter on Wednesday at Houston, where their six-game road winning streak was snapped.

Chris Webber scored 16 points and tied a season high with 20 rebounds for the Kings, but Williams had one of his worst games of the season. The Rookie of the Year candidate scored five points on 2-of-13 shooting and committed five turnovers while handing out five assists.

"I don't know what to say after a game like that," Webber said. "We really need to execute in the last four or five minutes.

A follow shot by Arvydas Sabonis put Portland ahead to stay, 76-75, with 4:44 remaining. Stacey Augmon hit a short jumper -- his only points of the game -- before Williams missed an open layup. Off a missed dunk by Grant, Wallace reached over a King to grab the rebound and hit a short fallaway to make it 80-75.

Following a turnover by Williams, Rider buried a 13-footer and Wallace rebounded a miss by Webber before hitting a baseline jumper. Damon Stoudamire fed Grant for a short jumper before sealing the run and the win with a wide-open layup.

Grant contributed 13 points and 12 rebounds and Stoudamire handed out 11 assists for the Blazers, who dominated on the defensive end to post their 11th win in 13 games. They held the Kings, the league's highest scoring team at over 100 points per game, to their lowest point total of the season and just 33 percent (31-of-95) from the field.

"We had just a very poor shot selection all night long," said Kings coach Rick Adelman. "We just can't take shots like we did tonight and expect to win the game. You've gotta go in first, get penetration and then look to kick it out. We were shooting too quick and it cost us."

Portland missed all seven of its 3-pointers, but the Kings hit just 6-of-28 (21 percent). The Blazers held a 53-49 edge on the glass and scored 16 points off 16 turnovers by the Kings.

"They just didn't make some shots tonight, or else it could have been tough for us," said Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy. "But we were fortunate in that way, and we did a good job of controlling the boards."

The Blazers broke open a two-point game in the first quarter with an 11-0 run, capped by Wallace's three-point play that made it 27-14 with 3:35 left. Wallace scored 16 points in the first half but Webber had 10, helping Sacramento get within 51-45 at the break.

The Kings opened the third quarter with a 12-2 run, taking a 57-53 lead on a 3-pointer by Tariq Abdul-Wahad. The Blazers trailed 65-64 after the third quarter, during which they hit just 5-of-20 shots.

"We blew it out in the first two quarters, and then fatigue played a factor," Wallace said. "So we had to bring it stronger in the fourth. It was enough to get the job done."

Vlade Divac chipped in 11 points and 11 boards for Sacramento, which has lost all three meetings with Portland this season and six straight in the series overall.

"Three losses to Portland, and in each game we were right in there," Webber added. "It gets frustrating.
