Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Pat Riley did not think he was at a basketball game. Scottie Pippen scored a season-high 26 points and Rasheed Wallace had 18 of his 22 in the second half as the surging Trail Blazers pulled away for a 101-87 victory over the Miami Heat. Riley, who is in his eighth season as Heat coach, drew a $50,000 fine from the NBA last month for comments about referees. He again had harsh words for the officials after this one. "I thought it was an absolute officiating travesty," Riley said. "Not from the standpoint that it was 32-7 (in free throws), but I was at a comedy store watching some comedian laughing with the Blazers and talking to them and smiling with them. "It was so unprofessional from the standpoint of officiating the game and getting into dialogues and talking to players and laughing with them. It was an absolute joke, and I would like to have heard some of the stories that were being told." During the game, referee Derrick Stafford reportedly told Riley, "Go cry on TV." The referees gave Riley plenty to cry about. Portland went 27-of-32 at the free-throw line, while Miami went to the stripe just seven times. The Blazers had plenty to smile about as they completed a 3-0 road trip and won for the 22nd time in 27 games since an 11-11 start. Portland enters the All-Star break just one-half game behind first-place Sacramento in the Pacific Division. "The break is unfortunate for us right now," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We're really playing well. We do need to get some small injuries out. We'll relax." "The main thing is to just keep getting better," Portland center Dale Davis added. "I think we can control our destiny. We have a good schedule coming up in the second half with only 14 road games. We just have to keep building on what we are doing and I like our chances." Portland continued its winning ways by taking control in the fourth quarter, using a 15-4 spurt to open an 88-80 lead with less than seven minutes remaining. Eddie Jones scored 20 points for Miami, which has dropped five of its last seven to fall a season-high 15 games below the .500 mark at 17-32. A 3-pointer by Eddie House, who scored a season-high 18 points, and a basket by Jones to start the fourth quarter gave the Heat a 76-71 lead. Pippen triggered a 15-4 spurt, scoring the first seven points to give the Blazers the lead for good. He carried Portland with nine points in the period. "For the first time since I've been in Portland, I feel like this is my team," said Pippen, who has won six NBA titles and is in his fourth season with the Blazers. "I'm in control and making plays." Pippen's big game came one night after he produced season highs of 25 points and 17 rebounds in a victory at Orlando. Derek Anderson gave Pippen some help in the final period when he scored seven of his 16 points. He capped the decisive burst with two foul shots for an 88-80 lead with 6:25 to go. Former Blazer Brian Grant made a layup with 4:18 remaining for the Heat's last field goal and rookie Caron Butler sank two foul shots with 3:48 left, pulling Miami within 92-87. After Grant's basket, the Heat missed their final five shots and committed four of their 11 turnovers. "In the second half, we weren't as aggressive offensively as we were in the first half," Grant said. Travis Best netted 11 points and Butler and Malik Allen 10 each for the Heat, who shot 46 percent (37-of-81). "We just need to continue going to the basket and keep fighting," Butler said. "Our presence will be felt eventually." Bonzi Wells gave the Blazers some breathing room, hitting a tough running jumper and completing the three-point play to give Portland a 95-87 lead with 2:46 left. Wallace drilled a turnaround jumper from the left baseline 23 seconds later. After scoring just four points in the first half, Wallace came alive. He scored 13 in the third quarter, helping the Blazers turn a five-point deficit into a 73-71 lead. The Heat led by as many as 12 points in the first half, but Portland used a 16-9 surge before the break to close to 46-41.
