Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Gary Payton was not at full speed and Damon Stoudamire knew it.

With Payton slowed by an abdominal strain, Stoudamire scored 21 points to lead a balanced attack as the Portland Trail Blazers remained hot at home with a 97-80 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics.

The perennially durable Payton had missed the last two games with the injury suffered Thursday against Chicago. The All-Star guard came back for this one but clearly was not himself as he had just 11 points in 27 minutes.

The lightning-quick Stoudamire took advantage with his dribble, getting open shots. Nursing a groin injury and the flu, he was 9-of-17 from the floor, including a trio of 3-pointers, and fueled a third-quarter burst that gave Portland control for good.

"It was going to be a game-time call," Stoudamire said. "I had to do a lot of preparation before the game -- probably the most I had to do in a long time in terms of getting my leg warmed up, going into the jacuzzi and in trying to get warmed up."

"Damon played a great all-around game," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We he came out, he went back and worked on the bicycle to stay warm. We were worried how much he could contribute but he was terrific."

Steve Smith scored eight of his 19 points in the fourth quarter for the Trail Blazers, who have won 13 of their last 14 at home to improve to 19-4 at the Rose Garden. Portland avenged one of its home losses, a 105-93 setback to Seattle on November 28.

Rashard Lewis scored 21 points and Vin Baker added 13 on just 5-of-20 shooting for the Sonics, who had won seven of its last nine games but dropped to 12-5 against the powerful Pacific Division.

"I didn't think we came to play," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "We really didn't want this game. Portland set the tempo from start to finish. I felt we tried to get this game over as quickly as possible looking forward to the All-Star break. I didn't like the effort tonight. We went on vacation."

Both teams were shorthanded. Portland played without All-Star forward Rasheed Wallace, who served the second of a two-game suspension for throwing a towel at the referee. Seattle was without forward Ruben Patterson, who was eligible to return from a three-game suspension for an assault charge but sprained an ankle in practice Tuesday.

The teams battled evenly through most of the first half. The Blazers took the lead for good at 37-36 on Stoudamire's runner with 1:26 left before intermission.

A basket by Lewis opened the third quarter and halved Seattle's deficit to 43-41. But Portland scored the next 10 points, including eight by Stoudamire, whose 3-pointer made it 53-43 with 7:18 left in the period.

"In the first half I tried to pick and choose my spots but in the second half I defined more of a rhythm in the game -- get some steals, hit some shots, try to ignite us," Stoudamire said.

The Sonics fought back within five points and trailed 65-58 entering the fourth quarter. But they got no closer as Smith and Detlef Schrempf took charge.

Smith had a tip-in and two free throws in a 6-0 spurt that gave Portland a 71-58 lead with 10:46 remaining. Schrempf had a pair of jumpers, each extending the advantage to 15 points. The second came with 3:51 left and made it 88-73.

Schrempf, who had seven of his nine points in the final period, threw in a 3-pointer in the final seconds. This was his third game since ending his "retirement," which had consisted of him sitting on the injured list until he was needed.

"Guys played really well off the bench," Dunleavy said. "Detlef was solid and made great passes and was confident taking it to the basket off the dribble. He looked in good form."

"When we share the ball, we play great," Schrempf said. "We get in trouble when we play selfish."

Bonzi Wells scored 11 points, Arvydas Sabonis added 10 and Dale Davis grabbed 13 rebounds for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (41-of-89) from the field, held a 46-41 edge on the glass and forced 17 turnovers.

Patrick Ewing had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Sonics, who shot 41 percent (31-of-75) and lost seven of their last eight meetings with the Blazers.
