Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Greg Anthony was the last player off Portland's very deep bench and the last player the Charlotte Hornets expected to shoot them down.

Anthony had a layup and 3-pointer on consecutive possessions to break open a tight game and lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 94-90 victory over Charlotte and a sweep of the season series.

The deep and talented Trail Blazers used 10 players, with Anthony the last to come off coach Mike Dunleavy's bench. The defensive-minded point guard played 25 minutes, two more than starter Damon Stoudamire, and collected 13 points and seven assists.

Detlef Schrempf also had a big game off the bench with 18 points and nine rebounds for Portland (14-3), which bounced back from its first home loss of the season. The Blazers shot 51 percent (37-of-72) from the field and held the Hornets to 42 percent (35-of-84).

Elden Campbell had 19 points and 11 rebounds and Derrick Coleman added 17 and 10 for Charlotte (8-7), which fell to 1-6 on the road. The Hornets suffered their lone home loss to Portland on November 20, a 100-96 overtime setback.

"That's two games we have taken Portland to the wire," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "We just had to hang together. The Blazers are a bunch of all-stars, most are top draft picks, and when you bring in players such as Portland has you are going to be a good team."

A jumper by Coleman pulled Charlotte within 85-84 with 3 1/2 minutes to go before Anthony drove for a layup 17 seconds later. Eddie Jones made 1-of-2 free throws and Anthony countered with a 3-pointer for a 90-85 lead with 2:45 to play.

Both teams stumbled through the next minute before Charlotte rookie Eddie Robinson missed a wide-open corner jumper with 1:25 left. Portland's Scottie Pippen made two free throws to seal it with 17 seconds remaining.

"I think we did some pretty good things defensively," Anthony said. "Down the stretch it didn't look as good as we would have liked, but you have to give them credit, too. They had a lot of will and desire to win. It was just one of those nights; just no rhythm."

Arvydas Sabonis scored 16 points, Steve Smith contributed 13 and Rasheed Wallace 12 and nine rebounds for Portland, which committed 21 turnovers and missed 10-of-24 free throws as it blew an 18-point second-quarter lead.

"I just think we have got to learn to be content with the best shot and not try so much to make the highlight play that will be on ESPN," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We were careless with the ball and we were lazy in getting out to open shooters. We have got to learn to put the hammer down and put people away. If we are going to reach our potential as a team, we have got to play 48 minutes."

Jones scored 15 points and David Wesley added 12 and 11 assists for the Hornets, who were without swingman Bobby Phills, who sat out with a pulled left hamstring.

"We didn't have a lot of weapons," Jones said. "We sort of missed Bobby. With a team like that, they are doubling our big people. You've got to have another guy to make some jump shots. We didn't have it tonight."

Sabonis and Smith scored eight points each in the first quarter as Portland raced to a 28-20 lead. A 3-pointer by Schrempf triggered a 13-2 run that gave the Blazers a 44-26 lead with seven minutes left in the second quarter but the Hornets fought back to 58-46 at halftime.

"I didn't think we played that badly in the first half," Silas said. "It was just that Portland was shooting so well. I told our guys to hang tough and we'd get back in the game."

Jones dunked to cap a 10-0 burst that gave Charlotte a 66-65 lead with 4:53 left in the third quarter. The teams were tied, 74-74, entering the final period.

"I don't know if we got a little lackadaisical, but after having a great second quarter and being up 18, we came out really slow, and they got the momentum back and they made it tough on us," Schrempf said.

Hornets forward Anthony Mason, who is averaging 10.8 points and 9.4 rebounds, took just four shots in 34 minutes. He had six points and one rebound while concentrating on Pippen.

"I'm going to say it once and I will say it for the last time -- if they run the offense through me, we are more efficient," said Mason. "When I'm just out there playing defense, and chasing people, it becomes a tougher game. We're getting better, but not being efficient."
