Nicolas Batum matched his career high with 33 points, LaMarcus Aldridge scored 29 and Damian Lillard added 20 for the Trail Blazers, who rallied from an eight-point deficit with 2:34 to play to tie the score on Batum’s fifth 3-pointer with 40.5 seconds left.

Ginobili, who scored 17 points, hit the tiebreaking free throws and Stephen Jackson added one with 4.4 ticks left before Aldridge’s last-ditch 3-point attempt bounced off the rim at the buzzer.
