PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers extended the Los Angeles Lakers’ road losing streak to a franchise-record 11 games with a 102-86 victory Wednesday night.
Wesley Matthews scored 20 points for the Blazers, who won their second straight before heading into the All-Star break.
It was the sixth straight loss overall for the struggling Lakers, who trailed by as many as 23. Los Angeles was hurt late in the third quarter when Nick Young appeared to injure his left ankle on a jumper and did not return.
Mired in second-to-last place in the Western Conference, the Lakers began their road losing streak in Portland with a 98-94 loss on Jan. 5.
Wayne Ellington led Los Angeles with 16 points and eight rebounds.
