Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Rookie J.R. Smith scored 19 points and blocked two shots as the New Orleans Hornets ended a six-game losing streak with a 91-80 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Two of the Hornets' league-low nine wins have come at the expense of the Trail Blazers, who dropped a 112-106 contest in New Orleans on January 14. Smith sparked a 12-2 run to start the second period with five points as New Orleans built a 31-21 lead and never were headed. After Portland trimmed the deficit with an 11-2 surge, Zach Randolph - who scored just four points - picked up the first of three technical fouls by Portland. "That's the thing you gotta do, make big shots," the 19-year-old Smith said. "I'm learning a lot on the job playing against great guys. Just playing against them gives you a lot more experience." That triggered an 11-0 spurt by the Hornets over the final 4:07 of the first half, giving New Orleans a 45-32 lead at the break. "We were flat, really flat," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "They shot the ball well from top to bottom and a better team tonight than we were. I don't have an explanation for it, but it looked like we were running in mud." Ruben Patterson added to Portland's woes by getting ejected at halftime for kicking the ball in to the stands. The Trail Blazers rallied in the fourth quarter and got it as close as 71-66 with 9:48 to go on a six-foot jumper by Darius Miles, who scored 15 points. But Smith scored four points as the Hornets responded with a 12-4 run. The spurt was capped by a 3-pointer by Bostjan Nachbar that pushed New Orleans' lead to 83-70 with 6:57 remaining. Nachbar had 13 points off the bench. "It was a good win," said Hornets forward P.J. Brown, who collected 13 points and 11 rebounds. "Everybody was communicating. It was a good defensive game and we got a W." Smith, who has just nine double-digit scoring efforts in 43 games, remains critical of his own game. "I didn't make as many shots as I wanted to," said Smith, who was 8-of-19 from the floor. "I still need to get more lift on my ball and just try and get more of a complete game." George Lynch hit a pair of critical fourth-quarter shots as the shot clock expired. The latter of the two shots came with 1:15 to gom, when Lynch, who had nine points and 12 rebounds, buried a 3-pointer to make the score 90-77. A native of nearby Battle Ground, Washington who attended Gonzaga, Dan Dickau scored 17 points for the Hornets. "I thought I played OK," Dickau said. "At the same time, if I would have played OK and lost, I would have been disappointed." "Dan has played extremely well." New Orleans coach Byron Scott said. "He's helped us win some games. He's a joy to have around, he listens and he wants to learn." Despite the victory that also ended an eight-game road losing streak, New Orleans still owns the worst road record in the league at 3-25. "Getting a win here, after we've been struggling on the road is a good feeling," Dickau said. "This team is close to kind of turning around and getting some wins. But you have to win on the road and hopefully this is a step in the right direction." Damon Stoudamire scored 30 points for Portland, which had its season-high three-game winning streak stopped. Stoudamire scored a franchise-record 54 points in the last meeting between the teams.
