Notebook: Trail Blazers 108, Timberwolves 97


Kerry Eggers, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Feb 24, 2014 2:09 AM - Updated Mon Feb 24, 2014 2:09 AM

THE FACT: Portland is the only NBA team with 10 victories in its division this season. The Blazers are 10-3 against Northwest Division opponents.

THE LEAD: Thomas Robinson came off the bench for 14 points, a career-high 18 rebounds and two blocked shots to help Portland to a come-from-behind 108-97 victory over Minnesota Sunday night at the Moda Center.

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 32 points as the Trail Blazers (38-18) rallied from an 18-point second-quarter deficit. Forward Nicolas Batum added 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who won for the second straight game without the services of injured All-Star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge.

Kevin Love scored 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves (27-29), who saw the end to a three-game winning streak. Guard J.J. Barea matched his season high with 21 points off the bench.

QUOTABLE: "The second half was really exciting. I loved the energy. It was a very good defensive half for us. Our attitude, our demeanor coming out at halftime was what made the difference."
-- Portland coach Terry Stotts, after the Blazers held Minnesota to 32.6 percent shooting in the second half

THE STAT: Robinson is the only NBA player this season to have as many as 18 rebounds and seven offensive boards off the bench.

TURNING POINT: Minnesota led 60-44 when Portland closed the first half with an 8-0 run. The Blazers outscored the Timberwolves 40-20 over the next 15 minutes to take an 84-80 lead into the fourth quarter.

HOT: Lillard was 11-for-17 from the field, including 5-for-8 from 3-point range, and 5-for-5 from the foul line.

NOT: Minnesota's Shabazz Muhammad was only 1-for-8 from the field in his 22 minutes off the bench.

QUOTABLE II: "They're good even with LaMarcus out. They can put points up in a hurry, shoot the ball well, and they have one of the best -- if not the best -- crowds in the league."
-- Kevin Love on the Blazers

GOOD MOVE: Robinson's block of a flying dunk attempt by Corey Brewer early in the fourth quarter led to a dunk by Will Barton off a lob pass at the other end for a 92-84 Portland lead. The play brought the house down.

QUOTABLE III: "We were joking, coming back into the locker room (after the game), calling him 'Thomas Aldridge.' He was huge for us. He went out and got a lot of rebounds outside of his box. He had a lot of tough finishes, ran the floor, protected the paint. He made some big-time plays that came at the perfect time."
-- Damian Lillard on Robinson

NOTABLE: Both teams were shorthanded in the post. Portland was without Aldridge (groin) and backup centers Joel Freeland (knee) and Meyers Leonard (ankle). Minnesota was minus starting center Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and reserve center Ronny Turiaf (knee) along with starting shooting guard Kevin Martin (thumb). Coach Rick Adelman said Martin might return either Tuesday at Phoenix or Saturday at Sacramento. ... Robinson is the first Blazer reserve to get 18 rebounds in a game since Joel Przybilla in 2008. ... Love notched his league-high 47th double-double of the season. He has scored at least 30 points in five straight games and in nine of his last 11 contests. It was Love's 10th straight game with at least 25 points and 10 rebounds, the longest run of 25-10 games since Shaquille O'Neal had 13 in a row in 2001.... It was the third double-double of the season for Batum.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Tuesday @ Minnesota, Saturday @ Sacramento, Monday @ Denver. For the Trail Blazers, Tuesday @ Denver, Wednesday vs. Brooklyn, Saturday vs. Denver.
