Portland is coming off a comfortable 105-98 victory at home over the Memphis Grizzlies in a reveral of the poor form the team showed most of March.

The bench unit of Mo Williams, Will Barton, Thomas Robinson and Dorell Wright combined for 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in support of Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge (game-high 28 points), Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum and Robin Lopez.

With seven games left in the NBA regular season, the Blazers (who started 31-9) are 48-27 and fifth in the Western Conference.

"Things are starting to turn around," Lillard says.
