PORTLAND, Ore. — LaMarcus Aldridge had a career-high 42 points and the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Chicago Bulls 109-103 on Monday night.
Derrick Rose had 36 points for the Bulls, who lost their second straight. Chicago has not lost three in a row this season.
Aldridge's 20-foot jumper with 1:11 left made it 100-93 and appeared to seal it for the Blazers, but Rose answered with a 3-pointer with just more than a minute to go.
Aldridge hit a turnaround jumper and Andre Miller made a pair of free throws with 30 seconds left to make it 104-96. Luol Deng had a reverse layup on the other end, but the Bulls could not catch up.
Chicago has lost four straight and 11 of their last 13 at the Rose Garden.
