LaMarcus Aldridge scored 23 points and Marcus Camby grabbed a season-high 22 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers beat Memphis 97-84 on Tuesday night, snapping the Grizzlies' seven-game winning streak. Jamal Crawford scored 15 points, Wesley Matthews added 13 and Nicolas Batum and Raymond Felton had 10 each for Portland. O.J. Mayo had 20 ponts to lead Memphis, and Rudy Gay scored 11. Aldridge hit his first five shots and scored 14 points during the first quarter as the Blazers won consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 10. Camby was a force under the boards throughout the game, pulling down 12 rebounds during the first half. He also finished with a season-high five blocks. Portland outrebounded Memphis 50-39. The Trail Blazers led 47-43 at halftime despite committing 13 turnovers in the opening two periods. Memphis took advantage of eight Portland turnovers in the first quarter, finishing the period with a 15-5 run to tie the score at 25-all. Late in the second quarter, the Grizzlies took a 43-42 lead on back-to-back fastbreak dunks by Gay, but Portland scored the final five points of the half. Memphis, which rallied from a 20-point second half deficit Monday night to beat Golden State, may have felt the impact during the second half against Portland. The Grizzlies went nine minutes without scoring a field goal during the third quarter as the Blazers opened up a 64-45 lead. Portland led by 20 points during the fourth quarter. Batum scored all of his 10 points during the second half. NOTES: During one stretch of the game, Portland made 18 consecutive free throws. The Blazers were 30 of 36 overall. ...
