The Blazers Take Manhattan

The Blazers Take Manhattan

The Portland Trail Blazers broke a four-game road losing streak Wednesday night in New York with a 94-90 victory against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

With the win, the Trail Blazers move to 35-14 on the season and are 16-9 away from the Moda Center this season.

It looked as though the Trail Blazers might pull away late in the game thanks to holding the Knicks to 28 percent shooting in the fourth quarter, but back-to-back three-pointers by J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. cut Portland’s lead to 89-87 with 50 seconds to play.

On the ensuing possession, LaMarcus Aldridge hit a turnaround jumper over Tyson Chandler to give the Portland a 91-87 lead. Though he struggled mightily from the field for most of the night, Aldridge said after the game that he never doubted his shot-making ability with the game on the line.
