LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points and the Portland Trail Blazers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the injury-depleted Oklahoma City Thunder 106-89 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.

The Thunder only suited up nine players. Most notably they were without reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant, who had surgery for a fractured bone in his right foot this month and will likely be sidelined until December.

Russell Westbrook picked up the slack, with 38 points, including 26 in the first half.

Portland outscored the Thunder 31-12 in the fourth quarter.

With 14 straight home-opening victories, the Blazers' matched the Boston Celtics' record set from 1979-92.
