Damian Lillard had 28 points and the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers came back from a third-quarter deficit to beat the Utah Jazz 102-94 Friday night.

Robin Lopez had 12 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Blazers, who avoided a season-high fourth straight loss.

Enes Kanter matched his career-high with 25 points and added 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who lost their second straight after a three-game winning streak.

Portland was playing its second game without All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who has a left groin strain.

Aldridge, who leads the team with 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game, also is expected to sit out Sunday night's game against Minnesota before he is reevaluated.
