Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- No matter how many timeouts Hubie Brown called, there was no stopping the onslaught by the bench of the Portland Trail Blazers. Reserves Ruben Patterson and Antonio Daniels led a fourth-quarter charge that powered the Trail Blazers to a 99-87 victory over Brown's Memphis Grizzlies. Patterson scored 13 points and Daniels added 10 for the Blazers, who had six players in double figures. They were part of a unit deployed by coach Maurice Cheeks in the fourth quarter that included four subs and Zach Randolph, who only started due to forward Rasheed Wallace's suspension. "I think they had the energy and were playing the type of defense we wanted at the time," Cheeks said. "Everyone was in a flow." Both Patterson and Daniels energized the offense with their defense, turning steals into easy transition baskets. Brown called three timeouts in less than three minutes but could not stop the surge. Memphis committed 19 turnovers that Portland converted into 27 points. "I almost caught pneumonia from the cold air as they were blowing by us," Brown said. "If you couldn't see that, then your glasses were too thick." Reserve Jeff McInnis scored 15 points for the Blazers, who have won three of four - beating the Grizzlies twice during that span - and 14 of 18. "Ruben pretty much turned the game in our favor during the time he was on the court," Cheeks said. "I think the other guys, Jeff and Antonio, kind of picked up on it. When those guys are out on the floor, our defense picks up." "We have confidence because we've been in these situations before," said Daniels, a former Grizzlie. "Jeff with the Clippers, me with San Antonio, Ruben here and with Seattle. That's the advantage of having the depth we have." Lorenzen Wright scored 22 points for Memphis, which has lost three in a row and six of seven. "Things started going haywire in the fourth quarter," Wright said. Patterson stole a pass and went in for a dunk, giving Portland the lead for good at 71-69 with 8:01 to go. On the next trip, Daniels stole a pass and fed McInnis for a jumper that prompted Brown's first timeout. Arvydas Sabonis and rookie Gordan Giricek exchanged jumpers and Randolph and Jason Williams traded three-point plays before Patterson drove for a hoop and an 80-74 lead. Patterson made a steal that set up a driving dunk by Daniels at the 5:15 mark, forcing Brown to call a 20-second timeout. This time, Daniels made a steal and dunked again for an 86-74 bulge with 4:57 left. Shaking his head, Brown called another timeout. "With that team, if you make turnovers, they're going to kill you," Grizzlies guard Brevin Knight said. "They've got three or four guys who can take it all the way and finish." Cheeks stayed with the subs for the rest of the game, even dipping down as far as rookie Qyntel Woods to mop up the team's eighth road victory in the last 10 games. "Had I come back with the starters, I think the rhythm would have been screwed up," Cheeks said. "He's that type of coach," McInnis said. "If a guy's in there rolling, he's going to stay with them. It doesn't matter who you are - if you're on the court and playing good, he's going to go with you." Trailing 48-42 at halftime, the Grizzlies stormed to a 64-57 lead on a basket by Pau Gasol with 5:26 left in the third quarter. But the Blazers responded with a 9-0 surge and took a 66-64 lead on a three-point play by McInnis with 2:17 to go. "We end the third quarter 1-for-8 and we start the next quarter 1-for 10. That's 2-for-18," Brown said. "You can't, against a good team like this, go 18 possessions with just two scores and expect to stay in the game." Bonzi Wells and Scottie Pippen scored 14 points each and Randolph added 10 for the Blazers, who shot 48 percent (42-of-87) and held a 42-35 rebounding edge. Giricek and Williams each scored 15 points for the Grizzlies, who shot 42.5 percent (34-of-80). At halftime of the Martin Luther King Day matinee, there was a ceremony honoring some of the game's black pioneers. Commissioner David Stern was on hand, as were former players Bill Russell, Bob Lanier, Wayne Embry, Al Attles and Earl Lloyd.
