(AP) — Damian Lillard had 34 points and seven assists, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat Minnesota 106-101 on Monday night in Minneapolis.
Lillard made 14 of 25 shots, C.J. McCollum scored 18 points and Al-Farouq Aminu had 17 points and nine rebounds for Portland, which trailed by 17 points in the first quarter.
