Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Portland Trail Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy returned to the sidelines just in time to see his club improve on the NBA's best record.

Brian Grant scored 22 points and tied a season high with 14 rebounds as the league-leading Trail Blazers posted their fifth straight win, 97-84 over the Phoenix Suns.

"We came out and eliminated our turnovers in the second half and continued to be aggressive and were able to take the lead," said Grant.

Dunleavy, who missed Tuesday's victory over Golden State due to an undisclosed illness, watched Portland improve the league's top home record to 13-1.

"I was really pleased with the outcome," said Dunleavy. "Especially the way we played in the fourth quarter."

Rasheed Wallace had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Trail Blazers (22-5), who have won 15 of their last 17 games and increased their lead over the second-place Los Angeles Lakers to four games in the Pacific Division.

"I thought we did a really nice job on the boards," Dunleavy added. "Rasheed had a really nice night on the boards and so did Brian."

Portland held a 74-69 lead entering the fourth quarter but pulled away with a 12-4 spurt to start the period.

Former Nevada-Las Vegas teammates Stacey Augmon and Greg Anthony came off the bench and scored six points apiece during the run. Anthony drained a 3-pointer with 5:16 to play that gave the Blazers a commanding 86-73 lead.

"I'm glad we were able to get the win," said Anthony. "This will be a game we look back on and feel fortunate that we won. We didn't shoot particularly well, but we rebounded well."

"We ran out of gas in the fourth quarter," added Phoenix coach Danny Ainge. "This is the first time this year when the body wouldn't do what the mind asked of our players."

Cliff Robinson scored 21 points and Danny Manning added 17 off the bench for the Suns, who had a two-game winning streak stopped and slipped back to .500 at 14-14.

Point guard Jason Kidd had 13 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for Phoenix, whcih shot 42 percent (33-of-79) but was thoroughly dominated along the interior. Portland held a 56-31 advantage on the boards, including a 15-6 edge on the offensive glass.

"Anytime you get outrebounded like we did tonight, you are not going to win too many ball games," said Kidd.

Blazers playmaker Damon Stoudamire outdueled Kidd, collecting 19 points, six rebounds and eight assists with just two turnovers while forcing his adversary into five giveaways.

"Damon Stoudamire was moving the ball and finding people open," said Dunleavy. "We didn't have a lot of guys shooting the ball well, but he did a nice job breaking down their defense."

The Blazers shot 41 percent (34-of-83) and were 22-of-28 at the line while limiting the Suns to just 11-of-19 from the stripe.

Tom Gugliotta, who was limited to nine points on 3-of-10 shooting, sank a 10-foot jumper with six seconds left in the first half to pull Phoenix into a 47-47 tie at the break.

Grant dunked and Wallace hit a 3-pointer from the right corner to give the Blazers a 52-47 lead with 10:57 left in the third quarter.

Luc Longley responded with a layup before Robinson drained a shot from beyond the arc to knot the contest at 52-52 with 9:02 remaining.

"They play at a high level of energy," Robinson said. "If you don't match that energy for 48 minutes, it's going to be tough on you because they guys who come in off the bench and give key and productive minutes."

Wallace made a free throw and drained a 3-pointer around a shot from beyond the arc by Isaiah Rider to put Portland ahead for good, 59-52, with 7:28 left.
