Portland holds off Golden State to reach .500, in an amazingly ugly win with the intensity of a playoff game.
The Blazers were missing Roy, Joel, Marcus and Nic. But without them, the makeshift starting lineup spread the points evenly (all five had 13-17 points),. Aldridge scored 17 with 12 boards, and Miller tallied 17 points with 8 assists and 4 steals in only 26 minutes.
Here's the deal. Let's discuss the game here. Dave will be by soon with the recap, then Ben will post the Media Row report. Then tomorrow, we forget this game ever happened. Deal? --Tim
