Portland 102, Atlanta 89

ATLANTA, Oct. 14 (AP) -- LaMarcus Aldridge had 29 points and nine rebounds to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 102-89 victory over Atlanta on Sunday, the Hawks' first loss in four preseason games.

Channing Frye added 14 points and six rebounds, and Joel Przybilla had 12 rebounds for the Trail Blazers (2-1). Marvin Williams led the Hawks with 18 points and seven rebounds, and Joe Johnson added 15 points.

Two members of last season's NCAA champion Florida team opposed each other, with Al Horford finishing with 14 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta and Taurean Green scoring seven points in limited action for the Trail Blazers.

Notes: Hawks coach Mike Woodson said before the game that he expects Acie Law to undergo an MRI on Monday on his left wrist, which he sprained Thursday night against Charlotte. ... Portland rookie Greg Oden, the first overall pick in the draft, will be traveling on some trips this season, but did not make the trip to Atlanta. He's recovering from right knee surgery that will keep him out all season.
