Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Arvydas Sabonis helped the Portland Trail Blazers control the interior and he and Rasheed Wallace helped them continue their dominance of the Sacramento Kings with a 96-91 victory.

Sabonis, a 7-3 center from Lithuania, scored 20 points and grabbed a season-high 16 rebounds to lead the Blazers to a commanding 59-37 edge on the glass. He hit 8-of-12 shots from the field but was no match for the sharpshooting of Wallace.

The 6-11 All-Star forward knocked down 9-of-10 shots to go with six rebounds as the Blazers appear out of their first extended funk of the season, posting their third straight win and pulling within 3 1/2 games of the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers.

"Sabonis was terrific once again," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "When we have needed him, he has been an anchor for us. He allowed us to control the paint and we ran a lot of things through him in the low post.

"Rasheed can make that money shot. He has done it many times."

The Blazers have won 10 consecutive meetings with the Kings and improved to a whopping 61-9 at Portland in the series. The 59 rebounds are a season-high for the Blazers, who had 58 in a 101-96 win at Sacramento on December 11. Portland is 31-1 against the Kings since the 1985-86 season.

Trailing 77-75 with just under seven minutes left, the Blazers regained the lead for good when Detlef Schrempf, who scored 16 points off the bench, hit a 3-pointer to make it 77-75 with 6:43 remaining.

"Detlef was great," Dunleavy said. "He anchored us on offense and defense down the stretch. He made a big shot. He did a good job pushing Chris Webber away from the basket."

Backup point guard Greg Anthony beat the shot clock with a long jumper and Sabonis added two free throws to extend the advantage to 81-75 with 5:23 left.

Tony Delk's free throws cut the deficit to 81-79 before Anthony and and Wallace made consecutive jumpers to stretch the lead back to six points with 3:45 left. Delk stole a rebound from Sabonis and made a layup to pull Sacramento within 88-85 with 90 seconds remaining, but the big man redeemed himself on the ensuing trip, making a short turnaround jumper with 1:16 left to make it 90-85.

Sabonis fouled out after knocking down Jon Barry in the lane and after the Kings' shooting guard made both free throws, Wallace sealed the victory with a 17-footer with 30 seconds left.

Predrag Stojakovic scored 22 points and Chris Webber added 21 and 11 rebounds for Sacramento, which has lost consecutive games since a four-game winning streak and slipped to 12-21 on the road.

"This was a tough game," Webber said. "In a close game like this, you can't get beat on the boards like we did. Credit their team and coaching staff. Close counts only in a horseshoe game."

"It's frustrating," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "Portland hurt us on the boards and around the basket. We kept giving up the ball. We have to find a solution if we want to start winning. This is the second game in a row now that we got hammered on the boards. The Lakers (on Sunday) were the other game."

Vlade Divac and Delk scored 12 points apiece for the Kings, who shot 41 percent (34-of-83), including a dismal 3-of-16 from 3-point range. Second-year point guard Jason Williams continued his recent slump with two points on 1-of-6 shooting in 28 minutes.

Damon Stoudamire scored 14 points and Scottie Pippen added 11 for the Blazers, who shot 41 percent (36-of-87) and scored 18 points off turnovers.

"It was one of those games that we didn't shoot particularly well but we dominated on the glass and we made shots when we had to and came up with stops when we had to, so it's a solid win for us," Anthony said.

Stoudamire, Sabonis and Pippen combined for 24 points in the opening period, leading the Blazers to a 28-23 lead. Portland maintained a 74-68 advantage entering the final quarter before Sacramento made a serious run for the lead.

Williams hit a 19-footer and Webber followed with a running jumper before Lawrence Funderburke hit two free throws with 8:36 to play, forging an 84-84 tie. Divac made 1-of-2 from the line with 8:05 left, giving Sacramento its last lead.

"We were concerned," Anthony said of the Kings' comeback. "But Arvydas and Rasheed on the post are an element that is hard to deal with, especially with the other guys that we have."
