L.A delivers in a THRILLER

By CamCripps3
The Portland Trail Blazers have recovered from a 21 point deficit in the 3rd quarter to stun the Dallas Mavericks at the buzzer through the hand of LaMarcus Aldridge, completeing a 106-104 victory at the Rose Garden.

A Nicolas Batum 3 pointer with 28.9 seconds left tied the game at 101 momentarily as Dirk Nowitzki replied with a triple of his own. with 4.5 seconds remaining Aldridge, of all people nailed a step-back 3 to tie the game once again.

A a critical move by coach Terry Stotts saw Ronnie Price enter the game for defensive purposes resulting in the point guard stepping up for a charge with 1.5 seconds left, allowing Portland one last play to avoid overtime.

A Wesley Matthews inbound pass to Aldridge in the post was the obvious choice as he favoured his trademark move over the right shoulder, hitting the jumper at the horn. 

The Portland Trail Blazers (23-22) now have two days off before a back-to-back against Utah, the second game is at the Rose Garden.
