Gerald Wallace will return for 2nd half

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Gerald Wallace made his way to the court a few minutes after his teammates and will play in the second half. Wallace, who had 13 points in the first quarter, didn't play in the second quarter because of lower back stiffness.

His return was initially in doubt.

The Blazers led 27-19 after the first quarter, but trailed 52-43 at the half.
