Well, that was unexpected. Despite a rough Portland start, LaMarcus Aldridge's 16 first-quarter points kept the home team in it early; his fantastic play down the stretch keyed a big fourth-quarter run and a Blazer victory.
Aldridge finished with 40 points and 11 rebounds on 16-23 shooting, breaking his previous career high of 37. Wesley Matthews scored 21, including some vital buckets late.
