Trailblazers Pound Pacers To Snap Losing Streak

Last updated on Thursday, January 24, 2013

(Portland, OR) - The Portland Trailblazers ended a six game losing streak by toppling the Indiana Pacers, 100-80 at the Rose Garden in Portland Wednesday night.

The Trailblazers shot 54 percent from the field, the highest field goal percentage the Pacers have allowed all season, and made it four straight wins against the Blue and Gold on their home floor.

LaMarcus Aldridge led all scorers with 27 points on 12-17 shooting, including a 20-foot jumper with three minutes left in the game that gave Portland an insurmountable 15 point lead.

Paul George led the Pacers with 22 points and seven rebounds and David West added 21 points and five rebounds for Indiana.

Both players are candidates to land a reserve spot on the Eastern Conference all-star team when final voting is announced tonight.

The Pacers travel to the Utah Jazz Saturday before wrapping up their four game Western Conference road trip in Denver Monday.
