Blazers Hang On For 97-92 Win Over Mavs In Game 3

Portland, OR (Sports Network) – Wesley Matthews finished with 25 points, helping the Portland Trail Blazers get back into their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Mavericks with a 97-92 victory in Game 3.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points for the Blazers, who still face a 2-1 deficit in the matchup but will have a chance to even the series Saturday at home.

Brandon Roy had 16 points and four assists in a resurgent performance for Portland. He had played just eight minutes and didn’t score in Game 2, after which he expressed disappointment to the Oregonian.

He later apologized for the slightly controversial comments, and Thursday he played an important role for the Blazers in nearly 24 minutes off the bench.

Jason Terry had 29 points and seven assists for Dallas, while Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 with nine boards.
