Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Arvydas Sabonis had 21 points and a season-high 16 rebounds and Bonzi Wells provided a spark off the bench with 13 points to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 92-83 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the front end of a home-and-home.

Scottie Pippen, who was not needed in the fourth quarter, added 17 points and Damon Stoudamire had 13 for Portland, which owns the league's best record at 39-11.

"Sabonis made some good inside plays for us tonight," Pippen said. "We look to him because he was making shots and getting fouled. When he was able to do that and give us penatration inside, it makes it that much better and tougher on teams."

Pippen made four assists for notch 5,002 for his career and become only the seventh player in NBA history to have at least 16,000 points, 6,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists. But the All-Star forward was impressed with his younger teammate.

"Bonzi has been playing well," Pippen said. "He's been giving us a great jump off the bench. Our young players are really playing more consistant now and that really helps us out."

Wells was suffering from a slight cold he caught while at home in Indiana during the All-Star break.

"It's nothing to keep me out of the lineup," he said. "They pay us too much money to be sitting out with a little cold, so I had to suck it up and give all I had to the Portland Trail Blazers. My energy was down a little bit. It's got to be a broken leg to keep me out."

The Trail Blazers (39-11) have won five straight games and 11 of 12, remaining one-half game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division.

Donyell Marshall scored 23 points and grabbed 17 rebounds and John Starks collected 15 points for the Warriors, who lost their fourth straight game. Golden State is just two games better than the last-place Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference.

"We gave a heck of an effort tonight," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said. "There were some key things in the game that kept us from getting over the hump. We gave them too many second-chance points. We had some fast breaks we didn't convert, which were turnovers, and our inability to make free throws. I thought those three things were pivotal in the game."

Considering their respective places in the NBA hierchy, the Warriors battled well with Portland and held a two-point lead after the first quarter. However, they were limited to just 12 points in the second period as the Blazers went ahead, 47-39, at the half.

After Pippen's 3-pointer gave Portland an 11-point advantage early in the third, Golden State went on a 17-6 run to forge a 56-56 tie on a 3-pointer by Mookie Blaylock with 6:52 left in the quarter. But the Blazers regrouped and scored the next five points. Portland held the Warriors to only 14 points in the third.

"The Warriors have some talent on their team," Pippen said. "They don't have all their guys healthy right now but they are a competitive team. You can't take them lightly and you have to go out and play a complete game. When you get your opportunities to put them away, you've got to do it."

The Blazers' excellent depth was underscored in the fourth when Golden State cut its deficit to 79-74 on a layup by Starks with 8:40 remaining. But Portland went on an 11-2 spurt with every basket scored by a different player.

Brian Grant's jumper from the left corner started the spurt, which featured 3-pointers from reserves Detlef Schrempf and Wells. Backup point guard Greg Anthony finished the run with a driving layup with 3:45 left, giving the Blazers a 90-77 lead.

"You look at our roster and we have so many guys that have put in work around here for so many years," Wells said. "You can't help but say we've got the deepest team. We have two totally different teams with our starting five and our second five. We've just got to come in here and put the pressure on the other team and just run them out of the gym. Because we've got ten guys who can beat five or six."

Grant finished with nine points and five rebounds and Rasheed Wallace contributed nine and 11 for Portland, which shot only 37 percent (35-for-95) from the field but improved its road record to a league-best 21-8.

"Everyone is rusty (after the All-Star break),' Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Everybody gets days off. There were a lot of shots out there tonight that looked like they were good shots but they weren't being made. That happens when you have that many days off. I think most of the night the effort was there. We made a lot of mistakes, didn't really shot the ball well at all."

The Blazers, who have won four of their last five meetings with the Warriors, host Golden State on Wednesday.

"We know they are going to come out much stronger tomorrow," Starks said. "They are a very talented team. Their first five are very big and long, except for Damon Stoudamire. We're going to have to push the ball and attack. The most important thing is to attack, get them in foul trouble, drive and kick and get into the those gaps. We did that very well early on in the game."

Blaylock had 13 points and a seaon-best seven rebounds and Jason Caffey chipped in with 10 and six for the Warriors, who shot 40 percent (31-for-77) but converted on only 5-of-20 3-pointers.
