Trail Blazers 105, Jazz 99: Rookie Damian Lillard scored 23 points to lead host Portland to a win over Utah in the back half of a home-and-home set.

J.J. Hickson scored 21 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 for the Trail Blazers, who had a season-low 77 points in a loss in Salt Lake City on Friday. Nicolas Batum finished one assist shy of his third triple-double in seven games.

Randy Foye led five Jazz players in double figures with 23 points. Utah fell to 9-17 on the road despite producing 24 assists against only four turnovers.

Foye hit three of his six 3-pointers midway through the third to help the Jazz build a 63-53 lead. Portland responded with a 21-4 run, and Nolan Smith's 3-pointer early in the fourth gave the Blazers a 79-71 advantage.

Utah managed to forge a tie moments later but never regained the lead after Luke Babbitt snapped the deadlock with a 3-pointer with 7:07 left. Foye made it interesting with six points in the final minute, including a 3-pointer that made it a three-point game, but Portland iced it at the line.

: Jazz F Gordon Hayward missed his fourth straight game with a sprained right shoulder. PG Earl Watson also sat with a knee issue. ... The Blazers were without SG Wesley Matthews and backup PG Ronnie Price, both out with ankle injuries. ... Smith had 13 points in 18 minutes off the Portland bench.
