It was a little closer than desired in the first half, but Portland turned it up a notch and easily defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves, 113-102.
LaMarcus Aldridge led the way with a new career high 37 points, plus 12 rebounds. Wesley Matthews added 23 points, and Andre Miller contributed 15 points and 10 assists. Darko Milicic and Kevin Love led the way for the Wolves, and former Blazer Martell Webster finished with 8 points.
Hang out here and talk about the win, then stay tuned later for Dave and Ben. -- Tim
