Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Thanks to Shawn Kemp, the powerful Portland Trail Blazers avoided falling to 0-3 -- but just barely.

Kemp victimized his former team with 18 points and 14 rebounds off the bench as the Trail Blazers built a big lead and held off the Seattle SuperSonics for a 97-90 victory.

"Shawn made some big shots and iced the game," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He was on the boards and made some big shots when we needed them. He's starting to move and hopefully he gains consistency."

The 6-10 Kemp was acquired from Cleveland during the offseason as part of a major reloading by the Trail Blazers, who were just minutes away from the NBA Finals last season. But Portland started the season with losses to the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix, raising some concern.

"It's good to get the monkey off our back," Blazers forward Scottie Pippen said. "It's been a tough start. We have high expectations. We need to find a rhythm and good chemistry and learn to play together. We're very unfamiliar with each other."

With a balanced attack, the Blazers opened an 83-62 lead with 9 1/2 minutes left before an inexplicable collapse. As they were losing their lead, they also lost their cool as hothead Rasheed Wallace was ejected with 2:57 remaining.

Gary Payton scored nine points in a remarkable 24-4 run and a 3-pointer by Rashard Lewis pulled Seattle within 87-86 with 1:13 to play.

That's when Kemp took over, making a pair of long jumpers around a hook by Patrick Ewing to give Portland a bit of breathing room at 91-88 with 32 seconds to go. Payton missed a layup and Damon Stoudamire sank four free throws to seal it.

"It was good to get a win. I'm going to leave it at that," Kemp said. "We needed the win and got it."

Stoudamire scored 21 points and Wallace and Steve Smith added 16 apiece for the Blazers, who have won six straight meetings with the Sonics. Wallace picked up his first two technicals of the season after collecting a record 38 last season.

Payton played all 48 minutes and had 25 points, 11 assists and six steals. Vin Baker collected 19 points and nine rebounds for the Sonics (1-2), who never led.

"Well, that was almost a lot of fun," Sonics coach Paul Westphal said. "We rode the roller coaster. We were horrible at times and we were great at times and I think we made some strides tonight, but we don't really care for moral victories."

Wallace scored eight points in the first quarter, helping the Blazers open a 27-22 lead. Kemp, who played for Seattle from 1989-97, received a mixed greeting when he entered with 1:47 to go in the period. He scored nine points in the second quarter as Portland widened its advantage to 52-42 at halftime.

Stoudamire scored nine points and Smith added seven in the third period as the Blazers took a 77-62 lead into the final quarter. Kemp, Stoudamire and Bonzi Wells opened the fourth period with baskets, giving Portland its largest lead.

"We did a good job for three quarters," Dunleavy said. "In the fourth quarter, turnovers hurt us. We had some tough and silly fouls that put them on the line and stopped the clock."

"It was another case of us digging a big hole for ourselves and running out of gas," Baker said.

Dale Davis had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (41-of-90) from the field and held a 54-34 rebounding advantage as they overcame 22 turnovers.

Ewing and Lewis scored 17 points apiece for Seattle, which shot 41 percent (31-of-75) but just 2-of-16 from 3-point range.

"We started off slow," Payton said. "We made too many turnovers and we got outrebounded. There's no excuse for that. If we had rebounded the basketball, it would have probably been a different story. We look like we haven't played basketball. I don't know why."
