Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Damon Stoudamire scored 14 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and the Portland Trail Blazers held the Miami Heat scoreless for over six minutes down the stretch to rally for a 92-85 victory.

The Heat got off to a quick start, shooting 70 percent (14-of-20) in the first quarter for a 34-21 lead. They extended the advantage to 40-23 midway through the second period and were up 55-44 at intermission after shooting 66 percent (23-of-36).

Miami took a 75-71 lead on Brian Grant's follow with 8:24 left but went scoreless until the 2:17 mark, when Jones converted two free throws.

"It was like two entirely different games," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "We showed a tremendous amount of confidence, energy, will and purpose and then in the second we began to lose our confidence. We didn't run down loose balls, and we fouled a lot.

"It was just a matter of time. All they had to do was make a few shots. They made a couple at the end and that was it."

Stoudamire's jumper gave Portland its first lead, 76-75, with 4:06 left. Scottie Pippen, who had missed his first nine shots, made it 78-75 with a layup on the Trail Blazers' next possession.

Stoudamire, who was coming off a 1-for-9 performance in Tuesday's 101-92 loss at Atlanta, made 4-of-5 shots in the final 12 minutes.

In the fourth quarter, Portland coach Maurice Cheeks started running a screen-and-roll for Stoudamire, who had few problems against Miami's defense.

"He played very big for us tonight," Cheeks said. "He played 40 minutes and we needed every bit of it. In the fourth, we started running the high screen-and-roll and that freed him."

"It was one of those things where I had it going in the fourth," Stoudamire added. "Early in the game, not much was happening for me, but one thing I've learned about this game, if you keep playing, eventually good things will happen."

Stoudamire scored seven of Portland's final eight points, including an uncontested 3-pointer that pushed the lead to 86-79 with 1:40 remaining.

"Damon can score," forward Bonzi Wells said. "He's a point guard, but we know he can shoot. We told him to keep putting it up. When he does that, it takes pressure off the rest of us.

Rasheed Wallace and Wells had 23 points apiece for Portland, which shot just 39 percent (28-of-71).

Eddie Jones had 19 points at halftime but only six in the second half as Miami shot just 26 percent (9-of-34) over the final two periods.

Miami held a 61-48 lead with 9:14 left in the third, following Alonzo Mourning's jumper. But the Blazers scored the next nine points and used a 15-6 burst to slice the deficit to 67-63 with 1:38 left.

Mourning finished with 16 points but committed five of Miami's 19 turnovers, which resulted in 22 points.

His most costly turnover came with 60 seconds left. He rebounded Stoudamire's missed jumper but lost the ball with Miami trailing, 87-81.

"We made mistake after mistake and lost the game," Mourning said. "It was our mistakes and not their defense. We have too many veterans on this team to continue doing this."

"We talked about staying with it in the new year," Jones said. "We didn't stay with it in the second half. We became a team in the second half that was going through the motions. We had opportunites all night, but we turned the ball over too many times."
