Damian Lillard scored 22 points and Mo Williams came off the bench to add 17 to help the Portland Trail Blazers rally from a double digit second-half deficit for a 99-92 victory over the Utah Jazz in a preseason game Wednesday night.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 16 points for the Blazers (2-2) and Robin Lopez had 13 points and 13 rebounds. Both of the team's preseason victories have come against Utah.

Enes Kanter scored 23 points and Gordon Hayward added 20 to lead the Jazz (1-3), who have lost three straight.

The Blazers outrebounded the Jazz 57-43. Utah also struggled to find consistency on offense against Portland's defense. The Jazz shot 31 of 80 from the field (38.8 percent) and had only two players shoot better than 50 percent from the floor.
