Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Damon Stoudamire scored 17 points as the Portland Trail Blazers averted their first three-game losing streak of the season and remained in the race for the league's best record with a 110-102 victory win over the Denver Nuggets.

Portland (35-13) is tied with San Antonio for the second-best mark, one-half game behind the league-leading Utah Jazz. The Trail Blazers hosts the Spurs on Tuesday before ending the regular season on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

"They made it interesting," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "Our guys handled it well and we did what we had to do. This win puts us in a position to control our own destiny. We'd like to get the home court all the way through."

The Blazers led 71-60 in the third quarter and used a 15-6 run over the final 4:35 to build an 86-66 advantage. Reserve center Kelvin Cato scored five straight points and Greg Anthony hit back-to-back 3-pointers to close out the quarter.

The Nuggets tried to claw their way back and used a 22-10 surge to cut the deficit to 100-91 with 4:19 left. A 3-pointer by Stoudamire and two free throws from Isaiah Rider ended any of Denver's comeback hopes.

The game was rescheduled from Tuesday in the wake of the tragic shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, a suburb of Denver.

Portland led 29-26 after one quarter before starting the second with a 17-4 spurt, opening a 46-30 lead with 7:04 left. At one point, the Blazers held the Nuggets scoreless on four straight possessions.

Arvydas Sabonis scored 16 points and Rider added 16 off the bench for the Blazers, who shot 51 percent (42-of-81) from the field and held a 51-25 edge in bench points.

"That's the 15th time in 48 games that a team shot over 50 percent on us," said Denver coach Mike D'Antoni. "I don't think that's bad luck, I think it's bad defense. To compete with a team like Portland, you need to give a full 48 minutes and we didn't do that."

Chauncey Billups scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth period to pace Denver. Antonio McDyess had 18 points and 14 rebounds and Danny Fortson added 17 points for the Nuggets, who have lost five in a row.

"We want to go out fighting and playing hard," said Billups. "For me personally it's more mental right now than physical. It's hardest right now because we're not going to the playoffs. We're playing not to lose and not to be embarrassed."

With just its second win in its last seven road games, Portland improved to 13-11 away from home and swept the three-game season series.
