PORTLAND---Portland s Damian
Lillard scored a career-high 51
points to lead the Trail Blazers to
a stunningly dominant 137-105
victory over the NBA-leading
Golden State Warriors in Oregon
The Warriors lost for only the
fifth time this season, and looked
well below their best in their first
game back from the All-Star break.
Golden State was one of three
divisional leaders to lose on the day;
Oklahoma City was beaten at home
by Indiana, and Toronto was defeat-
ed by an undermanned Chicago.
In another key result, Miami won
at Atlanta to leave the teams in a
virtual tie atop the Southeast Divi-
Portland s CJ McCollum added
21 points for the in-form Blazers,
who have won nine of 10 to improve
to 28-27, the first time they ve been
over a .500 winning percentage
since they were 3-2 on November
4. Stephen Curry led the Warriors
with 31 points and five assists but
it was not nearly enough to prevent
an end to the team s 11-game win-
The Blazers used a stifling
defense throughout the game, but
especially in the third quarter when
they forced the defending cham-
pions into 13 turnovers.
Indiana s Monta Ellis scored 27
points to help the Pacers win 101-
98 at Oklahoma City.
Paul George had 22 points and
10 assists for the Pacers. Kevin
Durant had 31 points while Russell
Westbrook contributed a career-high 18
assists for the Thunder, who suffered a
surprising home loss after coming into
the game with 14 wins from their pre-
vious 16. Chicago shook off the absence
of three players, and a five-game losing
skid, to beat Toronto 116-106.
Doug McDermott had a career-high
30 points and Derrick Rose scored 26
points for a Bulls team minus Jimmy
Butler, Nikola Mirotic and Joakim Noah
because of injuries.
Kyle Lowry had 27 points for the Rap-
tors. Miami also won in the absence of
key players, taking a 115-111 victory at
Atlanta. The Heat are without Chris
Bosh due to a blood clot, and also lost
Dwyane Wade just before the game due
to knee soreness. Luol Deng stepped up
in their absence as he scored 30 points
and Josh McRoberts had 19; season highs
for each player.
Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 23 points.
Utah s Derrick Favors had 23 points
and 10 rebounds to help the Jazz beat
Gordon Hayward added 22 points for
the Jazz which got back to an even 27-
Isaiah Thomas had 25 points for the
Celtics, who missed a good chance to
make up ground on Toronto in the
Atlantic. San Antonio beat the Los Ange-
les Lakers 119-113 in the final matchup
between Kobe Bryant and longtime
Western Conference adversary Tim
Duncan. Bryant and Duncan have each
led their clubs to five NBA titles and
have at least one league MVP award to
their credit --- in addition to MVP of
the Finals and All-Star game MVP.
Bryant, who is retiring at season s
end, had 25 points in 29 minutes for the
Lakers. Duncan finished with 12 points
and 13 rebounds and Tony Parker scored
25 points to help San Antonio complete
a four-game season sweep. The Spurs
moved within three games of defending
champion Golden State in the race for
the league s best record.
Orlando s Victor Oladipo had 17 points
and a career-high 14 rebounds and hit
the 3-pointer that put the Magic ahead
for good in overtime against Dallas en
route to a 110-104 win.
The Mavericks overcame an early 21-
point deficit to lead by as many as 14
and broke a franchise record with 19 3-
pointers, but lost for the fifth time in
Deron Williams scored 25 points for
Dallas and Chandler Parsons added 24,
and the pair combined to make 11 of 16
Nik Vucevic led the Magic with 21
points and 12 rebounds.
Washington led throughout and eased
up in beating Detroit 98-86, led by John
Wall s 22 points.
Charlotte s Kemba Walker scored 25
points as the Hornets edged Milwaukee

guard Courtney Lee due to lack of train-
ing time with the team.
