Portland Burns Shorthanded Knicks, 101-92

COMBINED REPORTS


NEW YORK -- Aaron McKie scored 24 points as the Portland Trail Blazers pulled out a 101-92 victory over the New York Knicks.


The Knicks, playing their third straight game without injured center Patrick Ewing, cut the Blazers' lead to 73-71 at the end of the third quarter. But Arvydas Sabonis scored nine of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to help Portland pull away.


Nets 81, Bucks 72. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Shawn Bradley had his best game as a Net, getting 17 points, 14 rebounds and seven blocks as the Nets defeated the Milwaukee, 81-72.


The Bucks scored just 26 points in the second half, a season low.


Cavaliers 108, Bullets 100. In Landover, Maryland, Danny Ferry scored half of his 20 points in the third quarter as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Bullets 108-100.


Rookie Rasheed Wallace led Washington with a season-high 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting.


76ers 90, Lakers 89. In Inglewood, California, Vernon Maxwell scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Philadelphia 76ers stunned the Los Angeles Lakers.


The 76ers snapped an 11-game losing streak at the Forum.


Cavaliers 124, Blazers 121. In Cleveland, Ohio, Bobby Phills scored a career-high 43 points Saturday as Cleveland beat the Portland Trail Blazers.


The Cavaliers set a NBA record by attempting 40 3-pointers, and they made a team-record 15 of those.


Jazz 99, Lakers 82. In Salt Lake City, Utah, Karl Malone scored 24 points and went over the 22,000-point mark for his career as the Utah Jazz defeated the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.


Malone entered the game with 21,978 points, 14th on the NBA all-time scoring list. He reached 22,000 with 11:32 left in the fourth quarter, scoring on a layup.


Bullets 127, Knicks 120. In Landover, the Washington Bullets broke a 15-game losing streak against the New York Knicks Friday in overtime, but had a bad scare when Chris Webber reinjured his left shoulder with 3:53 remaining in OT.


Webber, who has twice suffered a separation of that shoulder, drove the lane and lowered his shoulder into New York forward Charles Oakley, who fell to the floor. Oakley swiped at the ball and Webber fell awkwardly.


"It's not a dislocation," general manager John Nash said, adding that he would return to play soon. "It's the same shoulder, but I repeat, it is not a dislocation."
