Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Even without their coach, the Portland Trail Blazers were able to pick up their league-leading 21st victory.

Isaiah Rider scored 15 points and Arvydas Sabonis and Brian Grant provided tough defense inside as the Trail Blazers held the Golden State Warriors scoreless for the final three minutes in a 79-72 victory.

Portland improved to 21-5 despite playing without coach Mike Dunleavy, who was unable to run the team due to an unspecified illness. Assistant Bill Musselman took over the reins as the Blazers remained a game in front of the Utah Jazz for the league's best record.

"I got a lot of help from the players and other coaches," Musselman said. "I didn't know Mike (Dunleavy) wasn't going to be here until shortly before the game. I knew he must have been really sick not to of made it. But everybody pitched in."

Donyell Marshall hit a hook shot to bring the Warriors within 74-72 with 3:20 to play but they did not score again. Golden State missed its final six shots from the floor and was also forced into a shot-clock violation in the final three minutes.

Sabonis had 14 points and 11 rebounds and Grant added 13 and 12 for Portland, which sealed its fourth straight win by making 5-of-6 free throws in the final 79 seconds.

Jason Caffey collected 18 points and 11 rebounds for Golden State, which lost for the fifth time in its last six games and fell to 2-8 away from home.

With each team struggling on the offensive end, the Blazers held a slim 38-36 advantage at the half before opening the second looking like the team that leads the league in wins.

After John Starks hit a jumper to bring the Warriors within 43-40, Rider buried consecutive jumpers to fuel a 13-3 burst that gave Portland its biggest lead at 56-43 with 6:02 left in the third quarter. Rider had six points in the surge.

Rider finished 5-of-11 from the floor as the Blazers won despite shooting just 35 percent (26-of-73). Portland did much of its damage at the free throw line, making 24-of-30 attempts.

"The team only shooting 35 percent and to still find a way to win is a testament to the way this team has such a will and desire to win," Musselman said. "In the last five minutes, they really picked it up on defense and rebounded."

The inside presence of Sabonis and Grant harassed the Warriors into a lowly 31 percent (26-of-84) shooting performance. That duo also helped Portland garner a 50-45 rebounding edge.

"It was an ugly game out there tonight, real physical," Grant said. "Those are the kind of games that you really have to pull out. That really tests your heart and your character."

The Blazers held a 65-57 advantage after three quarters. But the Warriors scored 13 of the first 20 points in the fourth, capped by 1-of-2 free throws from Marshall to close to 72-70 with 3:54 remaining.

"We played so poorly offensively," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "Some of it was just missing shots. We just had that one stretch. We let them get too far away from us. We took some bad shots and didn't defend, and they got the lead to 10. After that we got it back under control and were all right."

Bimbo Coles added 17 points for the Warriors, who have dropped two of three meetings with Portland this season.
