Gameday Open Thread: Bucks 80, Blazers 106 (Postgame)

Say it with me: Wow! A focused LaMarcus Aldridge took his game to a whole new level, ending with 29 points, 19 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks, leaving to a huge ovation in the Blazers' dominant victory over the short-handed Milwaukee Bucks. With this win, the Blazers move back over .500 before the break.

Portland looked inspired almost all night, playing like a well-oiled offensive machine. Wesley Matthews scored 22 with 6 rebounds, Rudy Fernandez scored 17 with 7 assists, and Luke Babbitt learned about the sweet, sweet cheer of being the Chalupa-man.

The only bad news: Dante Cunningham rolled his ankle early and didn't return. We'll post updates on his status as they arrive.

Enjoy the box score here. NBA.com has dunk highlights here. Stay tuned for Dave with the recap, and Ben with the Media Row report. -- Tim
