NBA Game Summary - Portland at Milwaukee



(Wednesday, November 20th)

Final Score: Portland 91, Milwaukee 82

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - LaMarcus Aldridge poured in 21 points and Damian Lillard added 19 in the Portland Trail Blazers' 91-82 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.

Wesley Matthews added 15 points and Nicolas Batum finished with eight points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the Blazers, who have won eight straight.

"We came out in the second half and decided we had to be the aggressors on defense, and if we had to we had to get on the floor to secure the ball," said Blazers center Robin Lopez. "We were playing good defense in the first half but just not securing the possessions."

Portland is one of three teams in the NBA with 10 wins this season. The Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs also have 10 wins.

Luke Ridnour scored a team-high 13 points, while Zaza Pachulia and Gary Neal added 11 points apiece for the reeling Bucks, who have dropped six straight.

"I think we're still trying to figure it out. We've got a lot of new guys who are just coming back (from injury) into the rhythm of the game, and we're still trying to figure it out," Ridnour said.

Matthews canned a baseline jumper to put the Blazers ahead 23-19 with 2 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter, but the Bucks scored the final five points of the frame for a 24-23 lead.

A pair of Pachulia free throws put the Bucks up 37-31, but a 22-11 swing put the Blazers in front 53-48, and Portland took a 53-51 edge into the break.

The Blazers' lead swelled to 11, 70-59, following a Batum triple with two minutes left in the third, but the Bucks scored the final four points of the frame to make it 70-64 entering the final quarter.

Milwaukee couldn't get closer than five the rest of the way.
