PORTLAND, Ore. - On a night that could have gone terribly wrong for the Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard made everything right in the end.Lillard scored 39 points and made the go-ahead basket with 36 seconds remaining as Portland rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 98-94 Monday night.In the first quarter, Blazers starting guard Wesley Matthews collapsed to the floor and grabbed his left knee while driving to the basket. Matthews was helped to the locker room, then returned to the bench and eventually the game during the second quarter.Matthews, averaging 16.9 points per game, said he had a hyperextended left knee but didnt think it was serious. He played 30 minutes and scored five points.I told him he scared me, because he did, Portland coach Terry Stotts said. I was shocked to see him come back. Im no doctor, but it didnt look good.Lillard hit four 3-pointers, and scored 16 points during the fourth quarter to lead the Blazers (27-8). He has scored at least 39 points in three of his past nine games.LaMarcus Aldridge added 21 points, and reserve centre Meyers Leonard had 12 points and 12 rebounds for Portland.The Lakers (11-24) were without Kobe Bryant, the teams leading scorer at 23.6 points per game. Bryant stayed home for a scheduled day of rest. It was the fourth game Bryant has skipped after sustaining two leg injuries the past two seasons.Jordan Hill led Los Angeles with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Five Lakers scored in double figures, including Jeremy Lin with 14 points.Lillard has had several big scoring performances of late, often with Portland trailing late in the game and the Blazers needing a boost. Such was the case Monday, with the Lakers leading for most of the second half, and 83-76 with 5:55 remaining.Lillard hit back-to-back 3s during a 12-2 run that gave the Blazers an 88-85 lead. During the final 36 seconds, he made the go-ahead basket and three free throws to help Portland secure the win.I dont live for it, but I would like us to play with the type of urgency we did for the last 8 minutes for the entire game. But when its needed, Im definitely not going to shy away from it, Lillard said.Lillard scored 24 points in the second half and several times hit tough, contested shots.He got hot, definitely, and we didnt do a good enough job of disrupting him. Ive got to do a better job of making his life more difficult, Lin said.The Lakers briefly took a 92-91 lead with 43 seconds remaining on two free throws by Lin. But then Lillard immediately went to work, driving to the basket for the go-ahead layup 7 seconds later.Los Angeles took control early in the third quarter, running off 10 consecutive points to take a 61-54 lead. The Lakers led by as many as 10 before Lillard helped the Blazers cut the deficit to 73-70 heading into the fourth.Neither team was able to shake loose in the first half. The Blazers led by as many as seven, but the Lakers closed the second quarter on a 9-4 run to cut the halftime deficit to 47-45.The first-half highlight came when Nick Young chased down a ball in the backcourt, stepped over midcourt and hit a 40-foot 3-pointer to beat the 24-second shot clock.___TIP-INSLakers: Los Angeles forward Wesley Johnson, who injured his hip Sunday against Indiana, could be back as early as next week, coach Byron Scott said. ... Lakers forward Ryan Kelly, who had played just 46 minutes in the first 44 games, made his first start of the season. ... G Ronnie Price took an elbow to his nose during the third quarter and did not return. Scott said Price, who needed 11 stitches, could play Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers, but might have to wear a mask.Trail Blazers: Stotts was selected Western Conference coach of the month for December. Portland went 13-3 in December, tying a franchise record for wins in one month. ... C Chris Kaman made his first start of the season. Robin Lopez (broken right hand) and Joel Freeland (right shoulder) are out for an extended period.LEONARDS BIG NIGHTLeonard had his first double-double of the season. The most surprising element of his game came on the perimeter, where he went 3 of 4 from 3-point range. Leonard helped Portland get going in the fourth quarter with a four-point play when he was fouled while hitting a 3-pointer that cut the Lakers lead to 76-74.He played like we needed him to. He was making shots, shooting confident and grabbing rebounds. It was an all-around good performance, Matthews said.LILLARD LIKES LAKERSLillards 39 points was a career best for a home game, breaking his previous high of 38, also against the Lakers. It was the second-highest scoring performance by a Blazers player against Los Angeles; the record is 43 points by Clyde Drexler in 1989. In eight career games against the Lakers, Lillard is averaging 26.3 points.UP NEXTLakers: Wednesday at Los Angeles Clippers.Trail Blazers: Thursday at home against Orlando. Camilo Vargas Jersey . Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer. Carlos Sanchez Moreno Jersey . Now he has a complete game. Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his 179th career start for his first complete game and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead the Detroit Tigers a 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. http://www.nationalcolombiafootball.com/david-ospina-colombia-jersey/ . -- David Freese is starting to pick up his run production, which is something the Los Angeles Angels have been waiting half a season to see. James Rodriguez Jersey . - Mike Zimmer has brought a demanding style to the Minnesota Vikings. Juan Guillermo Cuadrado Jersey .Y. -- Mike Zigomaniss goal at 5:53 of the third period stood up as the winner as the Rochester Americans hung on to defeat the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.LONDON -- West Ham guaranteed its Premier League survival with a 2-0 win over 10-man Tottenham on Saturday in a London derby which took the pressure off Hammers manager Sam Allardyce. Younes Kaboul was dismissed in the 25th minute with a straight red card for taking down last man Stewart Downing. Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who prevented a far bigger defeat with a string of brilliant saves, then stopped a powerful free kick from Andy Carroll. But West Ham went ahead from the resulting corner by Mark Noble when Harry Kane accidentally headed in Carrolls header in the 27th. Downing made it 2-0 in the 44th at Upton Park with a low free kick after the Spurs wall voluntarily disintegrated when Paulinho and Emmanuel Adebayor left an embarrassingly large gap. West HHam continued strongly after the interval as Mo Diames overhead kick produced an exquisite save from Lloris, who did well to stop Kevin Nolan scoring the follow-up.dddddddddddd The Spurs goalkeepers one-man stand continued as Carroll flicked the ball to Nolan, with the onrushing goalkeeper bravely spreading himself to block the shot. Fit again and returning to form, Carroll is making a late bid for inclusion in Englands World Cup squad. He was substituted to a standing ovation in the 84th. It was an unprecedented third win for West Ham over Tottenham in a single season to ensure survival and heap further pressure on Spurs boss Tim Sherwood. Tottenhams defeat opens the door for Manchester United to claim the sixth spot and a Europa League place. ' ' '
