Orlando shot the lights out from three, but could not overcome a team effort from the Blazers, who start their road trip with a win. The game ended quite memorably, as Orlando grabbed the rebound, ran down court and played "hot potato" until two seconds left, then missed a three to lose by 4.
The balanced Blazers were led by LaMarcus Aldridge's 24 points and Andre Miller's 15 points and 7 assists.
There is no rest for the weary, as the Blazers are back on the court tomorrow, at 4:30 against the Heat.
Box score is here, and stay tuned for Dave later. -- Tim
