Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Grizzlies briefly looked ready to roll to their third victory over the Portland Trail Blazers this season. Then they realized they were playing the deepest team in the league.

Rasheed Wallace scored 27 points as the Trail Blazers halted a two-game losing streak against the lowly Grizzlies with a 100-87 victory in their final trip to GM Place.

Vancouver had beaten Portland the last two times they met and posted the first win in franchise history with a 127-120 victory over the Blazers on November 3, 1995.

But Portland got revenge for two of its most embarrassing losses of the season and moved past idle Dallas into fifth place in the Western Conference. The Blazers also clinched consecutive 50-win seasons for the first time since 1990-93.

The Grizzlies scored the game's first basket and took a 21-15 lead Mike Bibby's 3-pointer with 1:35 left in the opening quarter.

But Portland used an 8-0 run, capped by Rod Strickland's jumper, to surge ahead, 29-24. The Blazers took a 43-39 lead into halftime and never trailed thereafter.

Vancouver did not attempt a free throw in the first half, marking the third time in team history that has occurred. Bryant Reeves made the Grizzlies' first attempt from the line with 7:08 to play in the third quarter.

Damon Stoudamire, who did not score in the first half, netted 11 points in the third quarter and hit back-to-back 3-pointers to stretch Portland's lead to 77-56.

"We got three more games (and) we want to finish out 3-0 in the last three, just to get ready for the playoffs," Stoudamire said.

Stoudamire demanded a trade from the Toronto Raptors several years ago and was asked if he understood the factors behind the Grizzlies' desire to relocate from Vancouver.

"The circumstances of why I left Toronto is totally different of why they are leaving here. I just wanted to be on a winning ballclub, and if I could've predicted the future I may still be there," he said.

Dale Davis had six of his 18 points in the third quarter, when Portland outscored Vancouver, 31-17. He also finished with 15 rebounds in 29 minutes.

"We still have to get better, no doubt about it," Davis said. "We're playing better than we have over the last couple of weeks, but we still have to get better. We want to be on the top of our games when playoffs start. We have three games to get a tuneup."

The Blazers grabbed their largest lead, 83-58, when Scottie Pippen hit a basket with 9:50 to go.

Bibby scored 24 points, Reeves added 16 and Shareef Abdur-Rahim 14 and 12 rebounds for Vancouver. Rahim recorded his 107th straight game with double-digit scoring.

The Blazers' bench outscored Vancouver's reserves, 42-16. And even with the 7-foot Reeves in the middle, the Grizzlies were outrebounded, 55-33.

"We controlled the boards throughout the game," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "But in the second half we did a good job of getting to the glass, in the open court and getting some open scores."

Vancouver suffered its fourth straight loss and the second on its final homestand. The Grizzlies again failed to record a franchise-best 23rd win.

"We got overpowered tonight, just overpowered by a better ballclub," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "I think they had 20 rebounds in the second alone. When you you look at the stats, they are deceiving. They just shot better than we did. (Davis) hurt us bad, but they just overpowered us."

"Teams are playing for playoff spots," Reeves added. "These games mean a lot. They came and hit us hard in the third from everywhere. The offensive rebound hurt us. They seemed to get every loose ball, they came up with everything."

The Grizzlies got within 16 points with under four minutes to play, but reserve guard Greg Anthony made the most of garbage time by scoring five straight points for the Blazers, putting the game out of reach with 2:17 to play.

Damon Jones halted the run with a 3-pointer and finished with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting.
