Aldridge leads Trail Blazers over Pelicans 114-88

NEW ORLEANS (AP) One night after it took Portland three overtimes to get a win, the Trail Blazers needed only three quarters to get past the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night.

Portland led by 32 points heading into the fourth quarter and coasted to a 114-88 win over the Pelicans, picking up their 10th victory in the last 12 games.

"We knew that they were probably going to talk a lot about us having a triple overtime game last night," Portland point guard Damian Lillard said. "We knew we had to be locked in and that we had to make sure we created our own energy regardless of what we went through (Friday) night."
