Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Scottie Pippen and Rasheed Wallace each scored 24 points and Greg Anthony hit a pair of clutch jumpers as the Portland Trail Blazers posted their eighth straight win against the Sacramento Kings, 101-96.

Pippen sank 9-of-17 shots, 6-of-6 free throws, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out seven assists. His free throw with 9:21 remaining in the third quarter gave him 16,000 career points.

Wallace was 11-of-21 from the floor and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, who improved the Western Conference's best record to 17-5, moving one-half game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for first place in the Pacific Division.

Portland trailed 88-85 with 4:33 to play before Anthony drilled back-to-back 25-footers to put his team ahead to stay, 91-88, with 3:39 remaining.

"It always feels good to contribute and help the team win basketball games," Anthony said. "I was just fortunate to be in the right place at the right time and shots fell. We were real fortunate to get the win."

Chris Webber, who had a season-high 36 points and 12 rebounds, responded with a 13-footer to cut the deficit to one. But Wallace stepped up with short jumpers on consecutive trips to make it 95-90 with 2:28 to go.

Jason Williams had 15 points and 12 assists for the Kings, who suffered back-to-back losses and were held below 100 points in consecutive games for the first time this season.

"This was just a tough loss," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "I thought our guys really played hard and responded well after last night's game. Anthony made two big 3s at one stretch in the game and they did what they had to do to win."

Tyrone Corbin and Lawrence Funderburke had 10 points apiece off the bench for Sacramento, which ran out to 31-19 lead after one quarter behind 15 points from Webber.

Anthony scored 15 points and Steve Smith added 13, including a buzzer-beating 39-footer that gave Portland a 78-74 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

Webber was 16-of-26 from the floor and made several big baskets and grabbed big boards for the Kings down the stretch. But his teammates did not follow suit as Sacramento shot 40 percent (36-of-91) and lost the battle on the boards, 58-44.

"We played well down the stretch and made some big plays, but they did too," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Chris Webber made some big plays at the end, offensive rebounds, put-backs and they kept it right there."

Damon Stoudamire had seven points and 11 assists for Portland, which yielded 17 points off turnovers. The Blazers shot 42 percent (39-of-83) and improved to an NBA-best 9-3 on the road.

"We've played well on the road all year," Dunleavy added. "We've had a rough road schedule, so this was a big one for us."

The game featured 22 lead changes and 17 ties but came down to Dunleavy's usual late-game decision to replace Stoudamire with Anthony to toughen the defense.

After Wallace made a jumper and a free throw to give the Blazers an 85-82 lead with 6:40 to play, Webber rebounded Williams' missed jumper and drew a foul from Anthony while hitting a seven-foot jumper. He sank the free throw to forge an 85-85 tie with 6:14 remaining.

Funderburke converted a three-point play on the Kings' next trip before Anthony hit the first of his two 3-pointers, a 25-footer from the right side.

"I have to say when Greg Anthony hit that big 3-pointer was a killer, but that's how it is," Webber said. "You play all game and a couple of plays can change the game. I felt good tonight, but it all doesn't matter because we didn't win."

The 6-1 playmaker gave Portland a 91-88 lead by beating the shot clock from just beyond the arc from the left side with 3:39 left.

"(Anthony) had been struggling for a while, wasn't making those shots, and had been in a little bit of a slump," Portland forward Brian Grant said. "But we hung out a little bit last night, talked about it and just really got him psyched up and I knew that he would have a big game tonight."

"We're very diligent about our work ethic in terms of putting ourselves in situations where we are going to come through," Anthony added. "And tonight was no different. Those are what we call practice shots. If you're open and you have the opportunity to take them, then take them."
