Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Grizzlies did it again.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 15 points to lead a balanced attack as the Grizzlies defeated the Portland Trail Blazers for the second time in four days.

Tony Massenburg added a season-high 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting from the field and seven rebounds as Vancouver won without center Bryant Reeves, who sat out with a strained right rotator cuff.

"We played tough down the stretch and got some big plays," Abdur-Rahim said. "The difference just down the stretch is we took care of the ball. We really got out and contested shots. I don't think we've been consistent enough sometimes. Sometimes we're tough and make plays and at other times we don't."

The Grizzlies, who had five players score in double figures, snapped a seven-game skid with Tuesday's 105-97 triumph at Portland. This win gave them consecutive victories for the first time since a franchise-record five-game winning streak from February 13-20.

"I thought we had a lot of guys step up and play well for us tonight," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "I felt we kept our composure, we kept control of the game and we moved the ball around really well."

Vancouver rookie Stromile Swift came off the bench to score 13 points. With his team trailing, 78-75, Swift's dunk with 9:14 left ignited a 20-7 run to finish the game.

"Stromile was huge with his length, getting loose balls, deflections and rebounds," Lowe said. "It was a great team effort. We contested 17 out of 20 shots in the fourth quarter. We were really going after them. It was pretty good defense by us and I think we were able to score as well."

"We knew they were coming at us and trying to get some revenge so we were just trying to prepare ourselves to be ready," Swift said. "We went in and brought a lot of energy to the game. Guys came off the bench and made some big shots."

Bonzi Wells scored 24 points and Scottie Pippen added 11, 11 rebounds and eight assists for the Trail Blazers, who lost their season-high third straight game. It is Portland's longest losing streak since a dropping three in a row on March 6-9, 2000.

"We're not a very good team right now," Trail Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "These last three games in a row haven't been typical. It's not the same defense that has happened all year long."

Portland also was shorthanded in the middle as center Arvydas Sabonis did not play due to a sore right foot.

The Blazers started the week on top in the Pacific Division but now are tied for second place with the Los Angeles Lakers, one-half game in back of the Sacramento Kings. Portland is fifth in the Western Conference.

"Somehow we just have to dig down and play harder and not taking stuff for granted," Blazers guard Damon Stoudamire said. "We have to figure out that nobody is going to roll over and play dead. This is the time of the year where teams make strides towards the playoffs. And the teams that aren't going to the playoffs, play free and loose. We're a team that should be trying to stride towards the playoffs but instead we're taking one step forward and three steps back."

After a 3-pointer by Wells pulled the Blazers within 86-83 with 4:20 remaining, the Grizzlies scored the next nine points before Steve Smith made a layup with 25 seconds left to account for the final margin.

Vancouver's bench play was key to improving to 7-15 all-time against Portland, outscoring the Blazers' reserves, 40-24.

"We got great contributions from our bench," Lowe said. "Guys off the bench were big. They made plays down the stretch and got big rebounds."

Wells scored 11 points in the first quarter as Portland held a 28-22 advantage but was held scoreless in the second as the Grizzlies went into halftime ahead, 45-43. Mike Bibby had six of his 12 points in the quarter.

After trailing throughout most of the third, the Blazers took their first lead since midway through the second quarter when Shawn Kemp gave them a 74-73 advantage with a layup with 10:22 remaining.

"They caught us in a good week," said Kemp, who had eight points and seven rebounds. "I can't say too much about Vancouver, they played a big game. We just have to get ready for the playoffs. They say adversity makes a team stronger."

Rod Strickland, claimed off waivers by Portland earlier this week, made a layup and hit a jumper, wrapped around a basket by Isaac Austin, to give the Blazers a 78-75 lead. Strickland finished with nine points and four assists.

Michael Dickerson had 11 points and seven assists and Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and Austin chipped in eight points apiece for the Grizzlies, who shot 49 percent (37-for-75) and scored 15 points off 13 turnovers by Portland.

Rasheed Wallace, who had just two points and three rebounds before being ejected from Tuesday's loss to Vancouver, had 17 points and seven rebounds Friday night. Dale Davis, who started at center, did not score and grabbed six boards in 23 minutes.
