Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Bonzi Wells scored 18 points to lead six players in double figures as the Portland Trail Blazers blew out the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in a week, 96-64.

On Monday, the Trail Blazers rolled to a 98-72 rout in Cleveland. In this one, Portland went on a 19-0 charge early in the third quarter to put away the contest and extend Cleveland's longest losing streak of the season to six games.

After Wesley Person hit a 3-pointer to cut the Cavs' six-point halftime deficit to 45-41 with 10:07 to go in the third quarter, the Blazers started their run. Scottie Pippen ended it with a basket for a 64-41 lead with 4:56 left.

Portland took a 73-47 lead into the final period after yielding just 11 points in the third quarter, Cleveland's lowest total in any period this season.

"Our defense was outstanding," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "It just expanded and kept Cleveland from getting many good shots, especially in the third quarter. We just took the game over, and it all started with the defense."

Pippen added 13 points and Damon Stoudamire chipped in 12 and 11 assists for Portland, which rested its starters in the fourth quarter yet extended its lead to 93-53 on a free throw by former Cav Shawn Kemp with 3:19 left.

"It was a mismatch," Cleveland coach John Lucas said. "I thought we played well in the first half, (but) it was fool's gold. They turned it up and we just couldn't respond."

Rasheed Wallace had 11 points and 11 rebounds for Portland, which outrebounded Cleveland, 57-29, bettering by four its previous season high set at New York on November 3.

Lamond Murray led the Cavs with 16 points. No other player reached double figures for Cleveland, which shot 35 percent (25-of-72) and was just 1-of-7 from the arc.

"A loss like this impacts the team," said Cleveland point guard Andre Miller, who was defended by the taller Pippen and was limited to eight points and five assists in 28 minutes. "Right now, we're trying to get out of a slump. We've got to go out and try to find a way to win. That's what it boils down to. We're banged up, but it's something we have to suck up and deal with."

"We don't have a strong inside game and that team is light years ahead of us right now," Lucas said. "This team (Portland) has the capabilities to exploit every weakness we have because they can put Scottie Pippen on my best player. The few advantages we have, they can take away."

Portland made 7-of-10 3-pointers and shot 44 percent overall (35-of-79) en route to its most lopsided victory of the campaign. The Blazers have won three in a row for just the second time this season and came within one point of tying the team record for fewest points allowed in a game.

"We're just starting to get our chemistry," Wells said. "The starters are playing well (together). We're just going to run with our roles and play to our best abilities."

"We've still got a long way to go," Pippen cautioned. "It's good for us to get wins, but we've still got to get better as a team. We come up against stiffer competition and have to accept the challenge."
