Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves' 11-game winning streak came to a screeching halt.

The Timberwolves allowed the first eight points and never really recovered in a 109-88 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, whose balanced attack featured 18 points apiece from Rasheed Wallace and Bonzi Wells.

"I thought our guys started out with a great defensive presence from the get-go," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We had a lot of deflections, created 25 turnovers and played with a lot of intensity."

Minnesota's franchise-record winning streak dated to January 15 and featured five straight road victories. But the Timberwolves were visiting the Rose Garden, where Portland has lost just once since December 8.

The Trail Blazers were without forwards Scottie Pippen and Dale Davis, but it hardly seemed to matter. They beat Minnesota at home for the 20th time in 23 all-time meetings, not including a pair in the first round of last year's playoffs.

Kevin Garnett had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Wolves, who were playing for the first time in six days and may have lost their edge over the All-Star break.

"I am sure in their dressing room they will be talking about how the All-Star break, after 11 straight wins, messed up their rhythm," Dunleavy said.

Dunleavy was partially right.

"We said all along we'd take the rest, but at the same time it was coming at a bad time," Wolves forward Wally Szczerbiak said.

"The way they played and the energy that they had tonight and how we played, I don't think it would have mattered when we played," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "I don't think the break had anything to do with that."

Greg Anthony scored 13 points off the bench for the Blazers, who shot 52 percent (44-of-84) from the field and avenged a 93-80 loss at Minnesota on January 27. In that game, All-Star forward Wallace made just 4-of-20 shots.

"Rasheed Wallace didn't play well against us the last time, so I think he had something to prove," Szczerbiak said. "He did that tonight. I thought he played really well."

"He is our team. He is our franchise player," Wells added. "He is the biggest part of our team and you saw what he did tonight."

Wallace scored 10 points in the first quarter as Portland raced to a 28-16 lead. Wells had a jumper and three free throws in a 10-4 spurt that gave the Blazers a 44-26 bulge midway through the second period.

Minnesota trailed 54-39 at halftime and tumbled out of it early in the third quarter. Wallace had a three-point play and sank a 3-pointer before a basket by Wells capped a 12-0 spurt that gave Portland a 66-40 advantage with 7:28 remaining in the period.

The Blazers led 81-58 entering the final quarter and opened their largest lead at 107-78 on a jumper by Shawn Kemp with 2:03 to go.

Kemp and Arvydas Sabonis each scored 12 points and Steve Smith added 11 and 10 rebounds for Portland, which held a 44-34 edge on the glass.

Damon Stoudamire outplayed Minnesota's Terrell Brandon in a duel of Portland-area point guards. Stoudamire had nine points and eight assists while Brandon had 11 and one.

"We got our (butts) kicked," Saunders said.
