PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Paul Millsap had 31 points, including a go-ahead dunk with 1:11 left, and pulled down 11 rebounds to help the Utah Jazz snap a three-game losing streak with a 102-97 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.
The Jazz held a 94-90 lead with 5 minutes to go, but LaMarcus Aldridge hit two straight jumpers to close the gap for the Blazers.
Wesley Matthews made a 3-pointer for a 97-94 Blazers lead, but Al Jefferson hit a short jumper to pull the Jazz within one before Millsap's dunk gave Utah back the lead.
Jamaal Tinsley's steal on a Portland inbound pass led to another dunk for Millsap to make it 100-97 and the Blazers couldn't catch up.
Matthews led the Blazers with 33 points and Aldridge added 27.
