Andre Miller had 13 points, eight assists and a couple of clutch baskets for the Trail Blazers, who have won nine of 13 and will travel to Detroit and Minnesota before returning home for five games wrapped around the All-Star break.
 
Andrea Bargnani scored 29 points and former Blazer Jerryd Bayless sparked a second-half comeback with 18 points, but the Raptors lost for the 17th time in 18 games.
