Lillard leads Blazers past T-Wolves 108-97
Question of the Day
“Adrenaline shot through me, I was hyped,” said Robinson, who had 14 points and a career-high 18 rebounds, providing a spark in the absence of injured All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge. “I probably said a lot of stuff I don’t remember.”
Barton’s jam gave Portland a 92-83 lead.
“It was pandemonium,” he said.
Love presented a significant matchup problem for the Blazers with Aldridge sidelined by a left groin strain. Aldridge, who averages a team-high 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds, is expected to be re-evaluated in the next few days.
“This is a good team, even with LaMarcus out,” said Love, who also had 10 rebounds for his league-leading 47th double-double. “They’re good, they can put up points in a hurry. They shot the ball well and this is one of the best, if not the best, crowds in the league.”
Aldridge wasn’t the only Blazer hurting: The team was also without forward Joel Freeland because of a right knee sprain and center Meyers Leonard because of a left ankle sprain.
The Timberwolves continued to miss center Nikola Pekovic because of a sore right ankle and Kevin Martin because of a fractured bone in his left thumb.
