BOSTON -- LaMarcus Aldridge was a No. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.com/Olympics-Draymond-Green-Usa-Jersey/ . 2 overall pick in the NBA draft and is a two-time All-Star who has averaged more than 21 points per game in each of the last four seasons. One of the things hed never done, though, is win a game in Boston. The Portland forward scored 27 points and added 12 rebounds -- his fourth straight double-double -- and the Trail Blazers beat the Celtics 109-96 Friday night for their first victory in Boston since 2004. Nicolas Batum added 18 points for Portland, which won its fifth consecutive game. "I was happy for L.A. and Nic," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "You always want to check those arenas off your list." Aldridge was 11 for 18 from the field as the Blazers began a four-game road trip. The first stop was Boston, where they had lost nine straight games -- a streak that included the New Big Three era of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, but also the period before that, when the Celtics dropped into the lottery. "Its nice to win here, but Im more big picture," Aldridge said. "I want to keep winning on the road." Mo Williams scored 18 with eight assists for Portland, Damian Lillard had 17 and Robin Lopez had 10 rebounds. Jared Sullinger, who missed the last game with a bruised knee, had 26 points and eight rebounds off the bench for Boston, which has lost two in a row. Boston had won 13 of the previous 15 meetings against Portland since 2004. The last time the Blazers won in Boston was on March 31, 2004, when Darius Miles led Portland, Ricky Davis was the high scorer for the Celtics, the TD Garden was called the FleetCenter and Batum was a 15-year-old in France. "Its been a long time, like 10 years," Batum said. "Its good for our confidence. Its good to keep winning on the road." Portland led 94-80 early in the fourth quarter before Sullinger and Courtney Lee hit back-to-back 3-pointers to cut the deficit to eight points. Sullinger responded to Williams basket with another 3-pointer to make it a seven-point game with 8:51 to play. The Celtics had two possessions to make it closer, but came away without a point. Thomas Robinson rolled one in off the rim on a feed from Williams to make it 98-89, Dorell Wright hit a 3-pointer to make it a 12-point game and Williams hit a short fallaway jumper to make it 103-89. "Every team has a margin for error and not many teams have a big one," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "We cant take plays off; its not going to work out well for us on either end of the floor. Those guys are going to make you pay if you relax. And they did." Boston has allowed 105 or more points in three of its last four games, winning two. But the Blazers outscored them 33-27 in the third quarter to turn a six-point halftime advantage into a double-digit lead. "You cant outscore those guys. Youre going to have to defend them," Stevens said. "We didnt do that very well." The Celtics opened an eight-point lead early in the second quarter, but soon gave up 12-4 and 10-2 runs to fall behind 57-51 at the half. Wesley Matthews had 13 points and Aldridge scored 10 with six rebounds in the first. Sullinger had 10 points off the bench for Boston at the break. NOTES: The Celtics lost four games, won four, and now have lost two in a row to continue their streaky ways. ... Sullinger, a 2012 first-round draft pick who missed most of last season with back surgery, missed just one game with a bone bruise on his knee. ... Lopez had a double-double in the previous three games, but had just three points and 10 rebounds on Friday.http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.com/Olympics-Russell-Westbrook-Usa-Jersey/ . The Montreal Canadiens goaltenders dogs Motty ("short for Mozart") and Duke got loose overnight. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.com/Olympics-Patrick-Ewing-Usa-Jersey/ .Y. -- For the second consecutive game, the Florida Panthers overcame an early deficit on the road and picked up a key win. LOS ANGELES -- Josh Rutledge began the season at Triple-A before the Colorado Rockies recalled him less than three weeks ago. The little-used second baseman came up big in a key situation on Sunday to help them win another series. Rutledge hit a three-run homer to support Jorge De La Rosas seven strong innings, and the Rockies beat the error-prone the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1 in the rubber game of the three-game set. Colorado was leading 3-1 in the sixth when Rutledge drove Hyun-Jin Ryus 89th and final pitch into the left-field pavilion. Rutledges homer was the 16th of his career, and his first with more than one man on base since his grand slam on Sept. 16, 2012, at San Diego. He came into the game with one RBI in 18 at-bats. "That was a big at-bat by Rut. Obviously, that changes the game there," manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes not playing every day, but hes working hard and staying ready until he gets an opportunity." Nolan Arenado had two hits and extended his career-best hitting streak to 17 games -- the longest active string in the majors. The Gold Glove third baseman also robbed Scott Van Slyke of extra bases, making a diving stop across the foul line behind third base and throwing him out. "I told him that was one of the top three plays Ive ever seen him make. And thats saying something, because we know theres a pretty good collection," Weiss said. "Hes as good as Ive seen, and hes changed several games this year with his defence." The Rockies won their fourth straight series after beating San Diego, Philadelphia and San Francisco. "We feel really good about it," right fielder Brandon Barnes said. "We dont take anything for granted and we keep battling every day." De La Rosa (2-3) allowed a run and four hits. The left-hander has beaten the Dodgers in three straight starts after going 0-8 with a 7.32 ERA in his 10 previous career starts against them. "I just tried to attack the hitters," De La Rosa said. "I know those guys and they know me, too. So I was just trying to make my pitches." Ryus two-out single in the second inning was Los Angeles last hit until Matt Kemp doubled to right-centre with two outs in the eighth against Adam Ottavino. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.com/Olympics-John-Stockton-Usa-Jersey/. Ryu (3-2) gave up six runs and nine hits in five-plus innings. The Korean-born lefty is 0-2 with a 9.69 ERA in his three starts at Dodger Stadium, but 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA in four road starts. "The key against him is getting a good pitch to hit and being able to drive it," Barnes said. "He likes to stay on the corner, so you just have to try to get a ball up." Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez didnt start because of a bruised right thumb and Justin Turner filled in for him. Turner made one of the Dodgers three errors. They have 26 on the season. "We just need to relax a little bit and play good defence and be the good defensive players we all are," Turner said. "I wouldnt say were pressing, but everyones aware of whats going on. Sometimes I guess you try a little harder and then you get out of character." Turners throwing error in the second inning on De La Rosas two-out single in the hole put runners at second and third. Ryu hit major league batting leader Charlie Blackmon with a pitch and gave up a two-run single by Barnes that put the Rockies ahead 2-1. Three innings later, Ryu committed his first error in 37 major league starts when he bobbled a sacrifice bunt by Barnes and threw too late to first base. Blackmon scored the Rockies third run, beating the throw by Turner after he tagged out Barnes in a rundown on an attempted steal. Kemp also dropped a fly ball for the Dodgers. Adrian Gonzalez had an RBI single in the first to make it 1-0 Los Angeles. Ramirez pinch-hit in the ninth and got a two-out infield single against Chris Martin, who was making his second big league appearance. Gordon followed with a single that loaded the bases for Yasiel Puig, who grounded out to end the game. NOTES: The Dodgers, whose next victory will be their 10,000th as a franchise, begin a nine-game road trip Tuesday night at Minnesota. ... De La Rosa came in 0-3 with a 7.98 ERA in his three other road starts this season. ... The Dodgers recalled INF Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned RHP Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Albuquerque. Triunfel was claimed on outright waivers from Seattle on April 2. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
