Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- In a season of lows, a pair of Portland Trail Blazers ended the campaign with career highs. Travis Outlaw scored 20 points and rookie Ha Seung Jin added 13 as the Trail Blazers gave a glimpse of their future in a 106-103 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. With their worst record in 32 years, the Trail Blazers (27-55) missed the playoffs for the second straight season. In addition to a series of injuries to key players, coach Maurice Cheeks had a run-in with Darius Miles and was fired shortly thereafter. But there appears to be hope for Portland. Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Damon Stoudamire and Nick Van Exel are free agents, giving the team approximately $40 million of salary cap relief. It has a proven young star in forward Zach Randolph and a deep core of energetic youngsters. Two of those are Outlaw, a second-year forward drafted directly out of high school, and the 7-3, 305-pound Ha, a 19-year-old South Korean. Outlaw made 7-of-12 shots and 5-of-6 free throws and Ha made 6-of-7 shots and pulled down five rebounds. "Man, I feel like I've come a mile," Outlaw said. Pritchard also has been giving increased time to rookie guard Sebastian Telfair, who had 17 points and 11 assists and rookie small forward Viktor Khryapa, who had eight points and seven boards. "You look on the floor tonight, you saw some of our future playing out there and I promise it will pay huge dividends," Blazers interim coach Kevin Pritchard said. "When you consider we beat the Lakers with Kobe (Bryant) playing big minutes with a team that had Viktor, Ha, Sebastian, Travis - our young players - playing the fourth quarter, you have to feel pretty good about next year." "I think all this (playing time) will prepare us for an early season next year," Telfair said. "The fact that we got to go out there and play shows us what to expect. It gave us a lot of confidence. That helps a lot." Outlaw agrees with his young running mate. "It was huge for us," he said. "You got to crawl before you walk." All four were on the floor down the stretch. After Kobe Bryant scored seven straight points for the Lakers to give them a 101-100 lead with 3:22 to play, Ruben Patterson sank two free throws to give the Blazers the lead for good. With 1:45 to go, Ha threw in a left-handed follow shot for a 104-101 lead. Khryapa took a charge from Bryant, who drew a foul from Patterson on the next possession and made two free throws with 30 seconds left. With the shot clock running down, Khryapa penetrated and fed Outlaw for a dunk with 7.1 seconds to play. The Russian rookie tied up Bryant and tipped the jump ball to Patterson, who dribbled out the clock. "I am just lucky to be playing around all these good young players," Khryapa said. "It is great to try and use this time for improvement come next year. Hopefully, next season will be better than this one." Patterson scored 18 points for the Trail Blazers, who were 14 games worse than last season and finished below .500 for the first time in 15 years but avoided last place in the Northwest Division. Bryant scored 37 points for the Lakers (34-48), who fell off 22 games from last season. After reaching the NBA Finals four times in five years, the Lakers missed the playoffs for the first time since 1994. "It's very disappointing," Bryant said. "It's frustrating. But I've always been one to bounce back. I think we all have that fight in us. I think that is extremely necessary if you want to get anywhere in life. We need to put this season behind us but not forget the pain and frustration that came along with it and use that as motivation.
