DENVER (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge scored a season-high 39 points and set up the winning basket on a pass inside to Robin Lopez with 1.3 seconds left, helping the Portland Trail Blazers rally for a 105-103 win over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.
Aldridge received an in-bounds pass and dished it to Lopez, who sealed off J.J. Hickson with his hip for an easy layup.
Danilo Gallinari’s 3-pointer at the buzzer was well short as the Blazers won their seventh straight over Denver.
Ty Lawson led Denver with 24 points and 13 assists on the second night of a back-to-back.
