Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- For once, Rasheed Wallace watched the opposition lose its cool.

Wallace scored a career-high 42 points, picked up another technical foul and watched Denver Nuggets coach Dan Issel and Nick Van Exel earn ejections in the final minute of a 104-94 victory for the Portland Trail Blazers.

Wallace, who established an NBA record with 38 technicals last season and is well on his way to shattering that mark, hit 17-of-27 shots, including 4-of-7 3-pointers. He knocked down 4-of-5 free throws, grabbed seven rebounds and handed out four assists in 46 spectacular minutes.

"It was just a regular game," the media-unfriendly Wallace said. "Nothing special. I'm just playing. We had a good game and came out with a win."

"Obviously, it was a great all-around game for Rasheed," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He was getting good position and his outside game opened things up for his inside game."

The All-Star power forward helped the Blazers pull away down the stretch, hitting a five-foot hook shot to spark a 9-0 burst that he capped with a 3-pointer, giving Portland a commanding 95-81 lead with 2:45 to play.

Forty seconds later Wallace received his 30th technical after being called for a foul on George McCloud. But his reaction was nothing compared to the explosions of Issel and Van Exel, both of whom took exception to a call on Van Exel with 39 seconds left.

Van Exel stormed off the court after giving the officials an earful and Issel followed suit before being ordered off the floor himself.

"(Wallace) was terrific," Issel said. "We thought there were some people that we had to double in the low post and he got most of his points when they swung the ball and he was knocking down the outside jump shot. He had a terrific night and if you are going to give him those shots, you have to congratulate him when he steps up and makes them."

Wallace surpassed his previous career best of 38 points for Portland, which improved to 4-1 on its six-game homestand.

Antonio McDyess had 30 points and 13 rebounds for the Nuggets, who have lost 10 of their last 11 road games.

"I thought we played good defense," McDyess said. "But Wallace kept hitting big shots. He was so hot you really couldn't do anything. He knocked down his shots. He knocked down his threes."

Voshon Lenard scored 14 points, Van Exel added 13 and Raef LaFrentz 11 for Denver, which shot 45 percent (34-of-75) and lost the battle on the boards, 41-30.

"Rasheed Wallace was as good as I've seen," LaFrentz admitted. "He seemed to hit every shot."

Bonzi Wells and Detlef Schrempf scored 13 points apiece for the Blazers, who shot 46 percent (39-of-84) and posted their league-leading 22nd home victory.

Wallace was hot from the start, scoring 12 first-quarter points as Portland trailed 27-26 after 12 minutes. Wallace had 20 points at the half as the Blazers opened a 54-41 cushion at intermission.

Wallace hit a 21-footer, made a layup and added another basket during a decisive burst that turned a one-point deficit into a 47-37 lead with 3:24 left in the second quarter. Schrempf and Greg Anthony closed the first-half scoring with back-to-back baskets, giving Portland a 13-point bulge.

Wallace added eight points in the third quarter and 14 of Portland's 30 points over the final 12 minutes. He also established career highs in shots made and attempted.

"I never saw a guy that unselfish get 40 points," Anthony said of Wallace. "He is a joy to play with."

"Rasheed was great, no doubt about it," Portland forward Dale Davis said. "He played well and didn't force anything. He just played naturally and things came to him. He is a team player. When the ball is in his hands, usually something good happens."
