Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Damon Stoudamire made his return to Toronto count, scoring 22 points in three quarters as the Portland Trail Blazers remained hot, cruising to a 114-90 blowout of the Raptors.

Stoudamire was selected seventh overall by Toronto in the 1995 draft. He was the 1996 NBA Rookie of the Year and averaged over 19 points per game during two-plus seasons with the Raptors before being traded to Portland in a five-player deal in February 1998.

Although his playing time and numbers have decreased since joining Portland's balanced roster, Stoudamire looked every bit the scorer tonight in leading the Trail Blazers to their sixth straight win.

He made 7-of-11 shots, was 2-of-2 from 3-point range, hit all six of his free throws and had eight points in the third quarter when the Blazers blew open the game, outscoring the Raptors, 28-16. Stoudamire fell just two points of his season high in scoring despite playing just 29 minutes.

"We've been winning, but we haven't been playing well," said Stoudamire. "Tonight was good for us. We've got to keep building on this game. I'm wanted to come out and attack right away. Toronto is a solid ballclub. They are a tough team and we caught them when they were down. We have to keep taking our game to another level."

Stoudamire did not receive a friendly welcome from fans at the Air Canada Centre as they booed him mercilessly during opening warmups and introductions. He even drew a mock cheer when he was fouled hard in the lane in the fourth quarter and was slow getting up. But the 5-10 point guard had the last laugh as Portland handed Toronto its worst loss of the season.

"I left Oregon to go to college (at Arizona) and they booed me," Stoudamire said. "I have to be a professional. I am a grown man. It's the second time they booed me in Toronto. They booed me when I got drafted. A lot of fans don't understand that the boos make a competitive player play harder. It's been a year and a half. It should be over."

"I'm not sure what Damon expected but you've got to dig down and that's what he did," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Damon let the game come to him."

Steve Smith scored 19 points and Rasheed Wallace added 17 for the Blazers, who have won three straight from the Raptors to take a 5-2 lead in the all-time series. Portland increased its league-leading road win total to 14 and has won six in a row for the second time this season.

"We have guys that know how to play the game," Smith said. "On paper we have a good team. We have to stay unselfish like tonight. We have a lot of big tours. Detlef (Schrempf) wanted to play well in Seattle. I wanted to play well in Atlanta and Damon wanted this one."

Tracy McGrady scored 18 points off the bench but Toronto leading scorer Vince Carter was limited to 13 on 5-of-15 shooting in 35 minutes, failing to register 20 points for the first time in 14 games. The Raptors had a three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 9-7 at home before their second sellout crowd this season.

"We were in such a bad rhythm," Toronto coach Butch Carter said. "Vince was out of sync and I couldn't get him going. We didn't play physical in the third quarter and we have to change that and go right after teams."

"They got it going tonight. They made shots and got transition baskets," Vince Carter added. "We didn't do the job as a team. It's not all about me. They are a great team and that's why their record is what it is."

Doug Christie and Kevin Willis scored 17 points apiece for the Raptors, who shot 41 percent (35-of-85) and were just 3-of-11 from 3-point range. Toronto allowed a season high in points.

Bonzie Wells scored 12 points off the bench and Arvydas Sabonis added 10 and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who shot 55 percent (42-of-77) and held a 44-34 advantage on the boards. Portland buried 8-of-11 3-pointers.

Scottie Pippen managed just eight points but ignited Portland with a 26-footer just before the halftime buzzer to give the Blazers a 53-52 lead.

"I thought the big play was Scottie's 3-pointer before halftime," Butch Carter said. "I thought we had them rattled and that seemed to settle them down."

The game featured 15 ties and eight lead changes but Sabonis put the Blazers ahead to stay, 55-54, on a pair of free throws 23 seconds into the third period. Smith followed with a 3-pointer, Wallace hit a nine-footer and Stoudamire sank two free throws to build a 62-54 cushion with 10:02 remaining.

Stoudamire drained a 12-footer and hit two more from the line to make it 66-57 with 7:04 left in the third quarter.

"In the third quarter they came out firing and it seemed like we missed eight or nine shots in a row and the next thing you know we're down 15," Vince Carter said.
