Recap


Trail Blazers 125, Magic 119 (OT): Damian Lillard hit the go-ahead shot with two minutes left in overtime, part of an 18-point, 10-assist effort that helped host Portland hand Orlando its ninth straight loss.

After Magic guard Jameer Nelson forced overtime on a long 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds remaining in regulation, the Trail Blazers responded by dominating in extra time. Lillard's long pull-up shot gave Portland a 114-112 lead, and J.J. Hickson and Wesley Matthews followed with dunks on consecutive possessions to put the game away.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the way with 27 points and 10 rebounds for Portland, while Hickson (20 points, 15 rebounds) and Nicolas Batum (16 points, 10 assists) also finished with double-doubles.

J.J. Redick erupted for 29 points off the bench and Nelson added 21 and 12 assists for the Magic, who are mired in their longest losing streak since dropping 13 straight late in the 2003-04 season. Nelson became the franchise's all-time leader in assists, moving past Scott Skiles (2,776) on a first-quarter dunk by Andrew Nicholson.

With the teams tied at 85 after an entertaining first three quarters, Redick hit a 3-pointer and a layup to bookend a 7-0 run that gave Orlando a five-point edge early in the fourth. Aldridge responded with a pair of jumpers to draw Portland even, and the clubs then traded leads down the stretch to set up Nelson's clutch 3-pointer.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Portland scored 37 points on a scorching 75 percent (15-for-20) from the field in the third quarter. ... Hickson went 9-for-14 on Monday after hitting just 1 of 10 field-goal attempts in a 102-97 win over Minnesota on Saturday. ... Portland improved to 5-0 in overtime games this season. The Magic slipped to 0-3.
