Recap: Philadelphia vs. Portland

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Portland Trail Blazers nailed a team-record 21 3-pointers in their 139-105 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 20 points and 16 rebounds for Portland, which finished 21-of-37 from beyond the arc. Former Sixer Dorell Wright knocked down all five of his attempts from deep in the triumph.

"They have the league's most efficient offense. It sure felt like that," Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

Tony Wroten had 18 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Sixers, who have dropped six in a row and 10 of their last 11.

The Blazers led 71-64 at the break, but used an elongated 23-4 run to seize control. Wesley Matthews made a pair of triples, while Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum added treys during the surge, which was capped on an Aldridge layup for a 99-73 cushion with 4:05 left in the third.

"They were all open good looks. It shows how well we're moving the ball right now," said Lillard.

Portland took a 111-79 spread into the final frame, where the visitors cruised to the easy win.

Batum netted 10 points in the opening stanza, but Philadelphia headed into the second with a 34-32 advantage.
