Roy's 41 brings holiday cheer for Blazers

PORTLAND (NBA.com exclusive) -- Two of the NBA's stars went at it Friday night, and only one could taste victory.

That was Brandon Roy, who was at the top of his game in the Portland Trail Blazers' 107-96 victory over Carmelo Anthony's Denver Nuggets before a national ESPN audience.

Anthony was outstanding, collecting 32 points, nine rebounds and four assists, but Roy one-upped him with a spectacular 41-point show that turned into a late Christmas gift to a sellout Rose Garden crowd of 20,664.

It was the fourth straight win for Portland (20-12), which moved within a game of Denver (20-10) in the Northwest Division race. It was the fifth straight road loss for the Nuggets, who simply couldn't slow down Roy.

"It's frustrating to let a guy do what he does best," Denver forward Kenyon Martin said of Roy's performance. "It's frustrating for everybody. We try not to let guys go for big numbers like that."

Roy made 16 of 26 shots from the field the former number a career high was 3 of 6 from 3-point range and 6 of 6 from the foul line. The two-time all-star also had six rebounds and four rebounds and played the entire second half.

And he almost didn't play.

Roy missed Wednesday's win at San Antonio with a sore left shoulder. A Thursday MRI showed nothing more serious. He played with a protective harness over the shoulder.

"It was close," Roy said of the decision to play or sit. "I didn't think I was going to be able to play, because [at the game-day shootaround] it hurt. But then they gave me that strap that kept my shoulder back. "I told myself, 'You won't even think about it.' And once I warmed up ... I couldn't sit out today. It was Christmas. My parents even called and said, 'You gonna play?' I was like, 'I'm gonna play.' "

Roy said he didn't play the game without discomfort.

"It was sore," he admitted. "There were a couple of plays where I hit it and, 'Oh.' But the doctor said I couldn't hurt it any further by playing. That helped me on the court."

Roy scored 25 points in the first half to keep the Blazers within 51-49 at intermission. Denver was still in front 76-74 entering the fourth quarter, but then Steve Blake came to the party for the Blazers.

The veteran point guard, relegated to a backup role behind Andre Miller earlier this month, was on fire when it counted. Blake scored 14 of his 17 points in the final period, sinking 5 of 7 shots, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range, as Portland outscored Denver 33-20 over the final 12 minutes.

"The shot felt good," Blake said. "My teammates were finding me. I was able to make some shots."

"He did a great job of reading and getting to the open spot," Portland coach Nate McMillan said. "Denver does a lot of trapping and zoning. You have to move, and you have to move the ball. Blake got himself open. When he's spreading the floor like that and knocking down his shots, it opens up our offense."

Despite the loss of five of 10 rotation players centers Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla, forwards Nicolas Batum and Travis Outlaw and guard Rudy Fernandez for an extended period due to injuries, Portland has knocked off playoff teams Miami, Dallas, San Antonio and Denver in succession.

"I'm proud of the guys, being able to stay solid night in and night out, and to believe in one another," said veteran Juwan Howard, who had four points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes as Portland's new starting post man. "We could have easily said, 'Hey, the season's over with. Let's pack our bags and prepare for next season.' But we're having a no-quit attitude."

Denver, meanwhile, got plenty from Anthony on Friday night but not enough from his teammates. Chauncey Billups had 10 points and five assists in the first half, but the veteran point guard who had missed the previous three games with a strained groin sat out the second half for precautionary reasons. It played a role in the outcome as the Nuggets managed only four fast-break points in the game.

"Melo was very good, passed the ball well and had a great game, but we need some other guys to step up offensively," Denver coach George Karl said. "We're not picking the pace up on the road. We're not running and attacking. We're more of a half-court team than a fast-break team. We just have to get a little better there as the season goes on."
