Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers showed why they are the NBA's best road team, winning at one of the league's toughest venues for the second time this season.

Rasheed Wallace scored seven of his 24 points in overtime as the Blazers survived a second-half comeback and stretched their winning streak to eight games with a 108-103 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Wallace hit all five of his foul shots in the extra session, including a pair that gave Portland a 105-101 lead with 1:09 remaining.

After Tyrone Corbin's layup pulled Sacramento within two with 55 seconds left, Scottie Pippen made 1-of-2 from the line to keep it a one-possession game.

However, Sacramento missed three 3-pointers in the final seconds, two by Predrag Stojakovic and one by Darrick Martin. Detlef Schrempf clinched the win by hitting two foul shots with seven-tenths of a second left.

"I thought our guys executed offensively down the stretch," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "They (Kings) hung tough. You know it's a tough environment to play in when a team comes back big, and they come with the firepower they have. It was a nice win for us."

Pippen finished with 21 points and Steve Smith added 15 for Portland, which improved the NBA's best road record to 22-8. The Blazers have won nine straight against Sacramento, including a 101-96 victory here on December 11.

Chris Webber had 33 points, 19 rebounds and seven assists for the Kings, who rallied from a 72-57 deficit with 3:47 remaining in the third quarter. But Sacramento fell to 20-5 at Arco Arena.

Stojakovic helped fuel the comeback, scoring 11 of his season-high 25 points in the fourth period.

"I don't think there was any one thing that helped them win or any one thing that caused us to lose," Webber said. "If anything, they are just a good team that came in here and beat us, and that's all there is to be said. They were the ones who were three or four points better."

The Kings were shorthanded in the frontcourt as Nick Anderson missed the game with the flu and Lawrence Funderburke sat out with Achilles tendinitis.

"I thought it was a game we should have won," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "It seemed we did enough to win the game. Our guys played hard but we just couldn't get over the hump. Not having Nick and Lawrence available hurts your depth, especially up front."

Webber attempted a Sacramento-record 37 field goals, making 13, while Stojakovic was 11-of-23 as the two combined for 60 of the Kings' 98 shots. The Kings had a 56-38 edge inside but made only 3-of-20 3-pointers.

Jason Williams had one of his worst games as a pro, scoring two points and committing six turnovers. He was benched with 3 1/2 minutes in the third quarter and did not return.

The Blazers appeared in control when Wallace's jumper gave them an 83-74 lead with 11:08 remaining. But Stojakovic scored seven straight points, pulling the Kings within 83-81 with 9:05 left.

That set the stage for a frantic finish that featured six lead changes in the final three minutes of regulation. Wallace put Portland ahead, 96-95, with 30 seconds remaining before Webber made 1-of-2 from the line nine seconds later to tie it.

"They caught the momentum, shot a couple 3s," Wallace said. "We missed some shots and they ran down and got some layups. It's simple basketball, nothing too special about that."

After the Blazers ran down the shot clock, Damon Stoudamire missed a 20-footer from the left wing. Webber grabbed the rebound and called timeout with 1.7 seconds left, giving the Kings the ball at midcourt.

However, Portland defended the last shot well as Wallace got a hand in the face of Webber, whose off-balance 25-footer at the buzzer fell well short of the rim.

Portland never trailed in overtime as Arvydas Sabonis, who had 11 points and 14 rebounds, hit two foul shots 12 seconds in to break a 96-96 tie. The Kings tied it at 101-101 on Webber's driving layup, but Wallace hit four straight free throws as the Blazers took control.

"You got to respect the fact that they are a quality team," Portland guard Greg Anthony said. "On national TV, you know it's a big game for them. They came out in the second half and made a statement. We were just fortunate enough to persevere and come out with the win."

The Blazers shot 46 percent (39-of-86), including 8-of-13 from 3-point range. They also made 22-of-26 foul shots.
