PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers hope to end a season-high seven-game losing streak Saturday when they host the New York Knicks.

The Trail Blazers lost for the sixth time in their last seven home games and 13th in 14 contests overall, dropping a 96-91 decision to the Seattle SuperSonics on Thursday.

Damon Stoudamire scored 19 points and Derek Anderson added 18 off the bench as Portland took a 91-89 lead with just over a minute remaining, but Seattle closed the game with a 7-0 run to hand the Trail Blazers their 11th loss in 12 games under interim coach Kevin Pritchard.

After posting consecutive victories against first-place teams, New York nearly made it three in a row, but suffered a 109-101 overtime setback to the Northwest Division-leading Seattle SuperSonics on Friday.

Stephon Marbury scored 31 points and Tim Thomas hit a 3-pointer with nine seconds left in regulation to tie it, but the Knicks shot just 28 percent (3-of-11) in the extra period en route to their sixth loss in seven road games.
