Wild shootout to end Blazers win over Mavericks (VIDEO)

LaMarcus Aldridge

What an ending in the Rose Garden.

Nicolas Batum with the three to tie it (that capped off a late 7-0 Portland run). Dirk Nowitzki with a contested three for Dallas off Shawn Marion’s rainbow pass. LaMarcus Aldridge ties it with his first three of the season. Then the Aldridge game winner, a beautiful turnaround, capping a 106-104 Portland win.

Aldridge played like an All-Star but it was more than that — this was one of the best endings to an NBA game this season.
