Game Story

ANAHEIM (Ticker) -- For 7:18, the Los Angeles Clippers looked better than the Portland Trail Blazers. Then Portland went to the full-court trap.

Rasheed Wallace scored 19 points off the bench to lead four players in double figures and the league-leading Trail Blazers overcame a woeful start with a ferocious defense that resulted in 20 steals and 31 turnovers in a 97-70 rout of the Clippers.

Eric Piatkowski scored 10 of his 14 points in the first quarter as Los Angeles raced to a 20-3 lead with 4:42 left. Portland coach Mike Dunleavy responded by pulling out his first unit and employing some full-court pressure.

The strategy enabled the Blazers to outscore the Clippers 46-18 over the rest of the first half, including runs of 19-0 and 15-4 that gave Portland a comfortable 49-38 lead at the break.

"We came out defensively flat," said Dunleavy. "But by us having a deep bench, it allows our team to apply a lot of pressure."

Walt Williams scored 17 points and Damon Stoudamire added 11 for the Blazers, who have won five of their last six games and are 1 1/2 games ahead of Utah for the best record in the NBA.

"Our bench comes in with a lot of energy and that makes us a very aggressive team," Williams said. "With that, everything else seems to fall into place."

"I would say the reads we had on our traps, on our defensive rotations were excellent," Dunleavy added. "In fact, they were the best we've had all year."

Tyrone Nesby scored 17 points and fellow rookie Michael Olowokandi added 13 and 12 rebounds for the league-worst Clippers, who have lost 10 straight against Portland since a 102-89 home win on April 8, 1996.

"We do not do well against the press," Los Angeles coach Chris Ford said. "When being pressed, you must attack. We were supposed to have three different outlets, it just didn't happen."

"At the start of the second quarter we disintegrated," Nesby added. "We came out flat and fell right into their trap. We knew it was coming but we didn't do anything to stop it. By the time we got back in the game they were gone."

Los Angeles' fast start at The Pond was reminiscent of the Clippers' most shocking win of the season, a 103-77 blowout of the Jazz on March 27. That game also was played in Anaheim.

The Clippers (4-31) still have not recorded consecutive wins since a three-game streak from December 27, 1997-January 3, 1998.

Reserve forward Kelvin Cato collected 10 points for Portland, whose backups outscored the starters, 64-33.

Olowokandi's layup with 1:56 remaining gave Los Angeles a comfortable 27-11 lead before the Blazers reeled off 19 straight points.

Stoudamire sank a 20-footer and Williams hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 11 at the end of the first quarter.

The Blazer press took control at the start of the second, forcing three quick turnovers that resulted in three consecutive slams by Wallace to slice the deficit to 27-22 with 11:23 remaining.

"Rasheed came off the bench and helped turn around an ugly game for us," said Dunleavy.

Williams hit another 3-pointer before Wallace slammed again to forge a 27-27 tie with 9:54 left. Greg Anthony made a driving layup before Wallace capped the explosion with a free throw that made it 30-27 with 8:41 remaining.

The teams exchanged baskets until Jim Jackson's layup with 3:41 left gave the Blazers the lead for good, 36-34, and sparked another big run.

Isaiah Rider's 3-pointer with 1:15 to go in the half capped an 11-3 run to open a 47-37 Portland bulge.
