OKLAHOMA CITY -- LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 14 rebounds and the Portland Trail Blazers rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-94 in a showdown of Western Conference heavyweights on Tuesday night. Damian Lillard added 21 points and 11 assists and hit a pair of clinching free throws with 2.1 seconds left for Portland, which beat Oklahoma City for the second time in December. Portland (25-7) snapped a two-game losing streak but still trails Oklahoma City (25-6) by a half-game in the Northwest Division standings. Kevin Durant had 37 points and 14 rebounds for the Thunder, which had won 12 of its last 13 and 20 of its last 22 games before Tuesday. But Durant managed only one point in the fourth quarter and missed an 11-foot jumper that would have tied the game in the final seconds. The Thunder, who scored only 16 fourth-quarter points, lost for the first time in six New Years Eve home games since the franchise moved to Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City led by 13 points midway through the third quarter, but Portland chipped away at that lead and took its first lead since the first quarter at 87-86 on two free throws by Aldridge with 3:58 left. Reggie Jackson answered with a jumper to put Oklahoma City back ahead, but Nicolas Batums 3-pointer gave Portland a 90-88 lead and the Blazers never trailed again. Portland led 94-90 after Robin Lopez hit two free throws with 59.1 seconds left. Jackson, who entered the game as the third-best free-throw shooter in the NBA, went 1 of 2 from the line at the other end. Portlands Wesley Matthews missed a 3-point attempt and Lillard rebounded, but Thabo Sefolosha stole the ball from him and Lillard fouled him. Sefolosha hit both free throws to pull Oklahoma City within 94-93 with 23.6 seconds left. Portlands Mo Williams missed two free throws with 15.8 seconds left and Serge Ibaka rebounded for the Thundeer, but Lopez swatted the ball away and it went to Matthews, who was fouled by Durant and made two free throws with 9.2 seconds left. Durant went to the line with 8.2 seconds left and made the first free throw, but missed the second. The rebound was tipped to him, though, and he had an open look but left the shot short. Sefolosha fouled Lillard, who made both free throws to clinch the win. Portland 16-game streak of 100-point offensive outings ended, though, as the Blazers shot an uncharacteristic 39.6 per cent from the field (36 of 91) and 24.2 from 3-point range (8 of 33). Before Tuesday, the Trail Blazers had lost consecutive games for the first time all season, having fallen to Miami on Saturday and at New Orleans on Monday. Portland ended a three-game losing streak to the Thunder in Oklahoma City. The Thunder is 2-1 since All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook underwent his third surgery since injuring his knee during the playoffs in April. This season, Oklahoma City is 4-2 without Westbrook, who the team has said will be out until after the All-Star break. There were 10 lead changes in the games first eight minutes, but the Thunder used a 12-2 run to build a 34-24 lead early in the second quarter. Portland rallied within 40-36 at the 5:30 mark but went more than four minutes without scoring. Portland coach Terry Stotts burned two timeouts while trying to stop a 12-0 run by Oklahoma City and the Thunder led 54-42 at halftime. Matthews finished with 16 points and Batum added 15 for Portland. Serge Ibaka had 17 points and Reggie Jackson added 12 points and six assists for Oklahoma City.

Nikolaos Kounenakis has been hired as an assistant coach, the team announced on Monday.MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - The Miami Dolphins collapse was nearly complete when defensive tackle Jared Odrick provided the soundtrack, standing along the sideline screaming at coach Joe Philbin.Defensive end Derrick Shelby eventually stepped between them, but the message was clear: The Dolphins had let a critical game — and perhaps their season — slip away.Miami held the Baltimore Ravens without a first down for 17 minutes and couldnt stop them after that, losing 28-13 Sunday.The Ravens overcame a 10-point deficit with consecutive touchdown drives of 97 and 75 yards, then added the clinching score after a favourable replay reversal.The victory gave Baltimore (8-5) a significant edge over Miami (7-6) in the AFCs scramble for a wild-card playoff berth. The Dolphins, who havent been to the post-season since 2008, are now a long shot with three games to go.Disappointing, to say the least, defensive end Cameron Wake said. To finish out the game like that is a little mind-blowing.Frustration boiled over when Odrick yelled at Philbin as the Ravens drove for their last touchdown in the final minutes.Emotions were running high, Odrick said. I probably should have calmed down a little earlier.Said Philbin: Footballs an emotional game. We had a discussion. Ive already had another discussion with him. Football gets fiery out there. Its good.But the Dolphins showed little fire in the final three quarters, when they were outgained 425-161.Elvis Dumervil led Baltimores defensive charge with 3 1/2 sacks, increasing his season total to a franchise-record 16. Miamis Ryan Tannehill threw for 227 yards and a score, but was sacked six times.You have to give credit to their guys, Tannehill said. They did a good job of getting around the edge.The Ravens Joe Flacco went 25 for 33 for 269 yards and two touchdowns, and overcame an interception in the end zone.

Flacco fumbled attempting to throw and Miami recovered, but a review determined his arm was moving forward when he lost the ball, and the play was ruled an incomplete pass.On the next play, Justin Forsett scored on a 2-yard run.The Dolphins gave up 183 yards rushing and have allowed 661 in the past three games. The Ravens three running backs combined for 156 yards rushing and averaged 6.8 yards per carry.Miami was up 10-0 in the second quarter when a long completion and scoring threat were negated by a penalty on guard Mike Pouncey for being downfield on the play. That infraction seemed to deflate the Dolphins.Its definitely disappointing, especially having the lead, having the upper hand early on, then falling apart, Miami linebacker Jelani Jenkins said.Trailing 14-10, they had a first down at the Baltimore 4 early in the fourth quarter. Tannehill missed an open Mike Wallace in the end zone and was then sacked by C.J. Mosley on third down, forcing Miami to settle for a field goal.He got off and was wide open, Tannehill said. I threw it before I got hit and overthrew him. A good route, and I just missed him.Notes: Dolphins safety Louis Delmas was carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a right knee injury. Jenkins left the game in the third quarter with a foot injury and didnt return. Dolphins C Samson Satele left the game with an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve_Wine ' ' '
