About the Blazers: Seagoville native LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging a double-double with 23.8 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. ... Portland has the second-best record in the West behind the Spurs, who they beat Friday night in San Antonio. The Blazers also lead the Northwest Division. Additionally, the Blazers own the league’s second-best road record at 14-5.
About the Mavs: This is the lone game on this homestand before the Mavs leave Sunday to play a Monday afternoon game in Cleveland, which starts a three-game road trip with other stops in Toronto and Brooklyn. ... Tonight is the second half of the Mavs’ 11th back-to-back of the season. The Mavs are 5-5 on the second leg of back-to-backs and only have five more back-to-backs remaining this year. ... The Mavs won 108-106 in Portland on Dec. 7, when Monta Ellis snapped a tie by hitting a 21-footer at the buzzer. Dirk Nowitzki finished that game with 30 points.
