Notebook: Trail Blazers 103, Timberwolves 95


Kerry Eggers, For NBA.com
Posted Sat Nov 24, 2012 1:49 AM - Updated Sat Nov 24, 2012 1:49 AM

THE FACTS: Portland guards Wesley Matthews and Damian Lillard were too much for Minnesota Friday night, combining for 58 points in the Blazers' 103-95 victory over the Timberwolves Friday night at the Rose Garden. Matthews scored a season-high 30 points and Lillard added 28 for the Trail Blazers (6-6), who begin a seven-game road trip Sunday at Brooklyn. Kevin Love had 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Timberwolves (5-6), who lost their fourth straight game.

QUOTABLE: "I saw an intensity in our guys' [faces] about how important [defense] was. I've seen it in spots this season, but the second half, we sustained it for a long period of time."

-- Portland coach Terry Stotts

THE STAT: Portland entered the game last in the NBA in opponents' scoring (102.9 points per game) and field-goal percentage (50 percent). Minnesota shot 41 percent for the game to the Blazers' 53 percent. Over the final three quarters, the Timberwolves scored 62 points and shot 20-for-57 (35 percent).

TURNING POINT: The game was tied 78-78 late in the third quarter when Portland's Nicolas Batum sank a 3-pointer just before the buzzer. That kicked off a 10-0 Blazer run and the Timberwolves never got closer than six the rest of the way.

QUOTABLE II: "We just didn't defend well enough. [The Blazers] shot the heck out of the ball, and we didn't finish plays at the basket."

-- Minnesota coach Rick Adelman

HOT: Matthews and Lillard combined to make 23 of their 34 shots, including 9-for-14 from 3-point range.

NOT: Minnesota's front line of Love, Nikola Pekovic and Andrei Kirilenko made only 13 of their 37 shots in the game.

GOOD MOVE: With injury-plagued Minnesota thin in the backcourt, the Blazers exploited them by going at them with Matthews and Lillard.

BAD MOVE: Stotts left LaMarcus Aldridge in the game after the All-Star forward drew his fourth foul early in the third quarter. Aldridge picked up his fifth personal a minute later and took a seat on the bench.

QUOTABLE III: "We're all professionals. We've played basketball for a long time. It still takes calling out. That's what coach [Stotts] did, and everybody responded."

-- Portland's Wesley Matthews

NOTABLE: Lillard, a rookie, set season highs with 28 points and 11 field goals and also recorded his fifth game with at least six assists.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Saturday @ Golden State, Tuesday @ Sacramento, Wednesday @ L.A. Clippers. For the Trail Blazers, Sunday @ Brooklyn, Monday @ Detroit, Wednesday at Washington.
