Notebook: Blazers 102, Nuggets 96


Kerry Eggers, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 02, 2014 2:15 AM - Updated Sun Mar 02, 2014 2:15 AM

THE FACT: Portland is 12-3 against Northwest Division rivals this season. No other NBA team has more than 10 wins within its division.

THE LEAD: LaMarcus Aldridge, who had missed the previous five games with a groin strain, scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers (41-18) completed a 4-0 sweep in their season series against the Denver Nuggets with a 102-96 victory Saturday night at the Moda Center.

Robin Lopez scored a game-high 18 points with nine rebounds. Damian Lillard added 17 points and Nicolas Batum contributed nine points, a career-high 16 rebounds and six assists for the Trail Blazers, who won their fifth straight game.

Kenneth Faried, Evan Fournier and Randy Foye all scored 16 points for the Nuggets (25-33), who lost for the 10th time in 11 outings.

QUOTABLE: "That was the difference in the game. You lose by six points and you miss 12 free throws."
--Denver coach Brian Shaw, on the disparity in free-throw marksmanship

THE STAT: The Blazers won the board battle 52-40, with the Nuggets getting only 10 at the offensive end.

TURNING POINT: Portland outscored the Nuggets 13-5 over a three-minute span midway through the third quarter to take its biggest lead at 73-60. The Nuggets clawed back to within six points, but never closer.

HOT: After missing the previous three games with a hip injury, Denver's Darrell Arthur came off the bench and made 6 of his 7 shots en route to 12 points in 15 minutes.

NOT: Nuggets guards Foye and Aaron Brooks combined to shoot 8-for-26 from the field.

QUOTABLE II: "You bring back a 24 and 12 guy, it changes everything. We got more shots all over the court. It was big for us."
--Portland's Nicolas Batum on LaMarcus Aldridge

GOOD MOVE: Portland coach Terry Stotts limited Aldridge to 30 minutes as the three-time All-Star power forward eases back into shape after an extended time off.

QUOTABLE III: That was a freakish spike in the trend. Things evened out tonight."
--Portland's Robin Lopez on the Nuggets' rebound domination of the Blazers in their previous encounter

NOTABLE: Portland won despite making just 5 of its 27 shots from 3-point range. The Blazers entered the game fourth in the NBA in 3-point percentage at .382. ... Portland reserve Meyers Leonard, who had missed the previous five games with a sprained ankle, had eight points and five rebounds in 16 minutes. Still missing from the Blazers' frontcourt are reserves Joel Freeland and Thomas Robinson, both out with knee injuries. ... Denver welcomed back Wilson Chandler (knee), who started and had 14 points and Darrell Arthur (hip), who contributed 12 points off the bench on 6-for-7 shooting. ... Shaw -- who turns 48 on March 22 and retired as a player in 2003 -- suited up and went through drills with his players during Saturday's shootaround. "Every once in awhile I try to do that to get the guys more engaged," Shaw said. "They seem to want to go harder when they go against me."

UP NEXT: For the Nuggets, Monday vs. Minnesota, Wednesday vs. Dallas, Friday vs. L.A. Lakers. For the Trail Blazers, Monday vs. L.A. Lakers, Wednesday vs. Atlanta, Friday @ Dallas.
