ESPN: Brandon Roy returned after missing two games with a sprained right ankle and had 20 points and 12 assists, leading the Portland Trail Blazers to a 119-111 victory Friday night over the Los Angeles Lakers, who had their 10-game winning streak snapped.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points for Portland, which also snapped the Lakers’ seven-game winning streak on the road.
Portland went up 96-90 early in the fourth, but Sasha Vujacic’s 3-pointer tied it at 100 midway through the quarter. Vujacic nailed another 3-pointer to tie it at 107 with 3:05 left, but the Lakers could never grab the lead.
Roy hit a pair of free throws, and Travis Outlaw hit a jumper to make it 111-107 with 2:14 left. Aldridge added a pair of free throws to extend it.
Kobe Bryant missed a 3-pointer with less than a minute to go. Roy and Jarrett Jack hit four straight shots from the line to give Portland its biggest lead, 117-107, and seal the win.
Bryant had 33 points for the Lakers, who have lost five straight at the Rose Garden.
