Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers needed this game a lot more than the Phoenix Suns did, and it showed. Zach Randolph scored 27 points and Bonzi Wells added 21 as Portland posted a 120-102 triumph over the Phoenix Suns. With the victory, the Trail Blazers moved into a tie with Minnesota for fourth place in the conference - a position that carries with it home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Timberwolves, who finish their season at Memphis on Wednesday, hold the tiebreaker over the Blazers, who finish at the Los Angeles Clippers. The Blazers and Timberwolves are one game ahead of the sixth-place Los Angeles Lakers. "I don't think we have to tell anybody at this point in the season how important the games are, and tomorrow's game is no exception," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We just have to stay focused and let the chips fall where they may with regard to who we play and where we finish in the seedings." Phoenix, meanwhile, already knew its playoff fate - a first-round matchup against top-seeded San Antonio, a team it beat in three of four meetings this season. "We needed the win, period," Blazers guard Antonio Daniels said. "They're locked in eighth place. They know that. Our destiny isn't set yet, so we want to control our own. Tonight we took care of home court and hopefully we can go down to L.A. tomorrow and play the way we are capable." The Suns, who had won four straight games, held a 30-28 lead after one quarter before Randolph took over the second period, scoring 12 points to help the Blazers take a 66-53 edge at the break. "(Randolph) is a helluva player," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "He does a good job of ducking in and sealing, and when he gets you on his back, he can score. He has shown that he can score some points in bunches." "When I get the minutes, I get the chance to produce," Randolph said. "It's about getting minutes and playing out there on the court." Blazers forward Rasheed Wallace scored only eight points but created numerous chances for Randolph when he was double-teamed. "Rasheed's numbers might not show it, but he and Zach controlled the game in a way for us," said Cheeks, whose squad outscored Phoenix in the paint, 70-40. "I mean, 70 points in the paint tells the story. We were shooting layups primarily because of their double-team." "We haven't given up that many layups and that many points in the paint probably all year," Suns guard Penny Hardaway said. Portland opened up a 102-74 advantage after three quarters and cruised thereafter. "Phoenix had our number all year," said Wells, whose team avoided being swept by the Suns for the first time since the 1994-95 season. "We didn't want to get swept by this team. We wanted to sent a message to this team that we can beat them and we beat them well." "They certainly wanted (it) bad," Johnson said. "I don't think we were as solid defensively as we have been in the last three weeks. We got to give them credit. They played a good game, they were on top." Joe Johnson scored 26 points and rookie Amare Stoudemire added 18 for the Suns, who shot 55 percent (40-of-73) but allowed the Blazers to connect on 57 percent (48-of-84). "We knew this was an important game," Cheeks said. "We knew we had to go out and win the ballgame. Our focus stayed that way throughout the ballgame. That's what impressed me the most - maintaining that focus." The Blazers outrebounded the Suns, 41-29, and shot 83 percent from the free-throw line (20-of-24). "This is the time where we need to be peaking and playing some of our best basketball," said Portland guard Scottie Pippen, who had been out since mid-March after going arthroscopic surgery to reduce swelling in his left knee before being activated prior to the game. "Now we have everybody healthy and back on the court and we kind of know where we're going to be in the playoffs. But we're just trying to find our rhythm right now and continuing to play well."
