Feb. 1, 2004 at 6:42 AM

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Rasheed Wallace scored five of his 29 points in overtime as the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Chicago Bulls, 102-95 Saturday.

The win marked the Blazers' first four-game winning streak of the season.

Wallace gave Portland the lead for good, 96-93, with a shot from the arc with 2:54 left in the extra period. The edge was 96-95 when Wallace stole the ball from Antonio Davis and threw down an alley-oop dunk off a feed from Damon Stoudamire with 1:21 remaining.

"We can't say enough about Rasheed's play lately," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "His aggressive play has been a big factor. He has the ability to take our team to a higher level."

Chicago's Eddy Curry, who scored 27 points, missed a pair of free throws 10 seconds later. Stoudamire and Derek Anderson capped the scoring with two free throws apiece.

Zach Randolph scored 20 points and Stoudamire added 10, a season-high 14 assists and seven rebounds for Portland, which has won five of six after a three-game losing streak.
