Blazers beat Thunder 106-89 with big 4th quarter

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) LaMarcus Aldridge's first basket of this season was a bit of a surprise, even to him.

Aldridge hit a 3-pointer and Portland's All-Star forward went on to score 27 points in the Trail Blazers' 106-89 season-opening victory over the injury-depleted Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.

Aldridge, who has been working on his long-range shot, said Russell Westbrook's defense on the play gave him no choice but to shoot.
