Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Neither Derek Anderson nor Bonzi Wells shot well from the field, but both came up big at the line in the final minute, lifting the Portland Trail Blazers to an 89-85 triumph over the Seattle SuperSonics. It was the Blazers' third straight victory over the Sonics at KeyArena and fourth in five meetings overall. The loss dropped Seattle one-half game behind Sacramento atop the Pacific Division. Anderson made just 2-of-12 shots and Wells 4-of-13, but both were perfect from the line in the waning seconds. Portland was clinging to an 83-81 edge before Anderson connected on a pair of free throws with 23 seconds left. "You've gotta keep playing and the game will come to you," Anderson said. "I just missed wide-open shots. I just never got in a rhythm." Rashard Lewis made 1-of-2 from the stripe for Seattle with 13 seconds to play before Wells sank a pair one second later. Gary Payton nailed a 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 87-85 with nine seconds remaining, but Anderson restored the Blazers' four-point lead two seconds later with two more free throws. Vladimir Radmanovic missed a layup, Rasheed Wallace grabbed the rebound and the Blazers ran out the clock. "They probably went to the free-throw line probably 20-some times in the second half and we had only 10 free throws, so they were the more aggressive team," said Sonics coach Nate McMillan, whose team made 7-of-10 free throws while Portland sank 21-of-29. "In the second half, we had open looks late in the game that could have made a difference, but it just came down to them outworking us." Wallace's 3-pointer with 5:06 to go started a 7-0 run and gave Portland the lead for good, 79-77. Seattle climbed within 83-81 on a dunk by Lewis with 40 seconds left before the Blazers closed the game from the line. Wells had 16 points and Wallace 13 to pace the Blazers, who have won three in a row. Ruben Patterson and Arvydas Sabonis added 10 points apiece as Portland's bench outscored Seattle's reserves, 34-18. "I think our bench outdid theirs," Patterson said. "We just came in and turned the whole game around. That's what we need. When things are wrong for the first unit, the second unit has to come off and do the job. And that's what we did tonight." "They came out aggressive and we knew they would and put a lot of pressure on that first unit. And, you know, our second unit came in and we just got outworked," McMillan said. "We completely got outworked. They brought in fresh guys and were able to wear us down and outwork us." Payton had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Predrag Drobnjak scored 18 points and Mason and Brent Barry 14 apiece for the Sonics, who outscored the Blazers on the break, 20-4. "They've got a lot of guys who come out and play," Mason said. "They do have a deep bench, but I don't think that was a big factor. We just got ourselves in trouble." The Sonics led by 27-19 after one quarter and 49-40 at halftime. Seattle took its biggest lead, 55-42, on a jumper by Payton 1:21 into the second half. But Portland scored the final 12 points of the third quarter, including the final seven by Patterson, to take a 65-62 lead. Sabonis nailed a jumper to start the final period. "We always talk about all these players that we have, and tonight we benefited from having all those players," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "This was a back-to-back game that the guys came out and looked like they were in slow motion. We went to the bench and the guys that we went to just came up big. They got into it defensively and they got rebounds. That was an effort by the second team that I have never seen before." The action went back and forth, with Seattle taking its last lead, 77-76, on a layup by Payton with 5:15 to play. But Wallace countered with his shot from the arc, Sabonis made a hook shot over Drobnjak and Jeff McInnis hit a jumper to give Portland a six-point cushion with 2:40 to go. The win boosted the Blazers to .500 for the first time since they were 1-1 on October 31. "They were just quicker to the ball," McMillan said. "They wanted it more and they got it, were able to get to the free-throw line, stop the clock, set the defense and the press and take us pretty much out of what we wanted to do."
