Notebook: Trail Blazers 117, Wolves 110


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:21 AM - Updated Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:21 AM

THE FACT: The Portland Trail Blazers had to come from behind in the fourth quarter to defeat the severely short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves.

THE LEAD: Entering Saturday's game the Wolves knew they would be without their center, Nikola Pekovic (right ankle). What they didn't know until right before the game is that they would be without Kevin Love (right quad contusion) and Kevin Martin (fractured left thumb), as well. With that trio on the bench, Minnesota had to find a way of making up the 62.6 points and 25.7 rebounds that they average collectively. The remaining Wolves did their best, but the end result was all too familiar as Minnesota gave up yet another fourth quarter lead and lost to Portland 117-110.

With Damian Lillard and Earl Watson held in check by early foul trouble, LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews stepped up at key moments on the game. Aldridge scored 10 of his 26 points in the third quarter and Matthews scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth as Portland notched only its second road victory in its seven road games.

With his scorers on the bench, Ricky Rubio had a changed mindset from the beginning. He scored 11 points in the opening quarter and finished with a career-high 25 points to go with his nine assists.

Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger scored 26 and 19, respectively, and Dante Cunningham got his first double-double of the year with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "We knew they would make this an energy game. We knew they were short-handed with Kevin Love and Kevin Martin out, we had to make sure that we stayed focused and made sure we don't tell ourselves 'Well, Kevin Love and Kevin Martin aren't playing, so this is going to be easy.' It is an NBA team and they got guys out there that are capable of putting some things together and that is what they did tonight."
-- Portland guard Damian Lillard

THE STAT: Surprisingly, given who they were missing, Minnesota dominated Portland inside. The Wolves outscored Portland 52-28 in the paint and outrebounded Portland 62-55. But Minnesota's lack of depth was also apparent as Portland's bench built a 34-18 advantage.

TURNING POINT: Minnesota led by seven points late in the third quarter, 82-75, only to see Portland use a 23-6 run over the next 7:30. Minnesota was only able to make a single field goal during that run.

QUOTABLE II: "[Portland] is a great offensive team. They shoot the heck out of it. Aldridge inside and Lillard had an off night because of foul trouble, but they have a lot of weapons. It is really hard to contain them."
-- Minnesota coach Rick Adelman

HOT: Aldridge shot 12-for-16 from the field as he accumulated a very efficient 26 points and nine rebounds.

NOT: Because Lillard was called for two quick fouls in the early minutes of the game and another in the early minutes of the second quarter, he played less than seven minutes in the first half and scored only two points.

GOOD MOVE: Shabazz Muhammad took advantage of some playing time, scoring a career-high 12 points on 4-for-8 shooting.

BAD MOVE: When Rubio was out of the game, the ball movement suffered. Minnesota's bench also failed to accumulate a single assist.

NOTABLE: Kevin Love did not play due to a left quadriceps contusion, a decision made just minutes before game time. Half of Portland's road losses this season have been incurred in the last 19 days. Portland lost only five of its first 20 away games, including a 120-109 loss to Minnesota on Dec. 18.

UP NEXT: For Minnesota, Monday vs. Houston, Wednesday vs. Denver, Wednesday, Feb. 19 vs. Indiana. For Portland, Tuesday vs. Oklahoma City, Wednesday @ L.A. Clippers, Wednesday, Feb. 19 vs. San Antonio.
