Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Losing their spot as the NBA's top team seems to have had a profoundly negative effect on coach Mike Dunleavy's Portland Trail Blazers.

The Trail Blazers looked more like a last-place team, suffering their second straight blowout loss, 115-103 against the New Jersey Nets, who resembled world-beaters for a night.

Since having its 11-game winning streak snapped in a 90-87 home loss to the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers in a highly anticipated battle for the NBA's top mark, Portland has looked flat.

The Blazers appeared to rebound from the setback with a 101-90 win over Vancouver, but looked dismal in a 109-90 drubbing against Toronto at the Rose Garden on Monday.

"We need to play smarter, with more of a purpose," Dunleavy said. "We haven't played well since the Lakers loss, we've made a lot of mental mistakes. We were soft overall.

"We had a lot of opportunities in transiton, but we turned the ball over. That gave them some gaps and they took advantage of it. We got beat off the dribble, we got beat off backdoor cuts, we didn't see it coming and we didn't react."

Portland entered this contest with the league's second-best road record at 22-8 and had won five in a row away from home. But New Jersey took it to the Blazers early and opened a 61-47 lead at the half.

Stephon Marbury had 24 points, seven rebounds and 13 assists for the Nets, who moved within four games of Milwaukee for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

"(The losses) are speed bumps," New Jersey coach Don Casey said. "I don't think we're sliding as much as the beginning of the year. We bounce back. This is a springboard coming back from a road trip. We're redeeming ourselves."

"We showed a lot of character," Marbury said. "We were focused and followed our game plan. We don't worry about the other teams (in the playoff hunt). We just gotta keep winning."

New Jersey entered the contest with a dismal 4-22 mark against Portland over the last 13 seasons. But the Nets looked like they had owned the Blazers for years when Marbury beat the shot clock with a 30-footer that stretched the lead to 77-55 with 6:16 remaining in the third quarter.

Rasheed Wallace led six scorers in double figures with 19 points for Portland, which slipped 3 1/2 games behind idle Los Angeles in the Pacific Division.

"People expect us to win every night, so it's not really a slump," Wallace said. "We hold ourselves to a higher standard. It's cool, we go through it. As a team we have to rise above it. We lost the game in transition, we gave them too many opportunities."

Arvydas Sabonis scored 10 of his 16 points in the first quarter when the Blazers were still in contention, trailing 30-25 entering the second period. Detlef Schrempf hit a pair of free throws to move Portland within three points before New Jersey began pulling away.

"We just need to concentrate more," Sabonis said. "We lose because (of) no concentration. No defense, results in no offense. The Lakers loss couldn't have affected us mentally."

Scott Burrell, who had a season-high nine rebounds, drained a 3-pointer. Marbury knocked down a 21-footer, Johnny Newman made a layup and Marbury capped a 13-0 run with two free throws a driving layup to open a 41-27 lead with 9:01 left in the half.

The Nets outscored the Blazers, 33-23, in the third quarter and Lucious Harris' 3-pointer gave them their biggest lead of the night at 108-82 with 5:55 to play.

Jamie Feick scored a season-high 16 points and Keith Van Horn and Kerry Kittles added 15 apiece for New Jersey, which shot 45 percent (37-of-82), including 8-of-18 from 3-point range.

"I and the team are encouraged by this victory," Van Horn said. "The whole team feels confident right now and the Milwaukee game (Friday) is going to be the biggest game of the year. We're playing at our best level of the year right now, despite some tough losses."

Kendall Gill added 14 points for the Nets, who scored 15 points off turnovers.

"I think this win shows everybody that we are legit(imate)," Gill said. "On any given night, we can be the best team or we can be the worst team. The trick for us is to stay at a consistent level."

Schrempf scored 15 points and Stacey Augmon, Steve Smith and Damon Stoudamire had 11 each for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (37-of-80) and held a 45-43 rebounding edge.

"We know what we must do, we just must go out and do it," Smith said. "We can get through this slump. We have some veterans here. We have some guys who just stick together. If we stick together, we'll be OK. Tonight was a bad game for us."
