PORTLAND, Ore. -- With Portland trailing Utah to start the fourth quarter, Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard did what an All-Star is supposed to do. Lillard scored 14 points in the final period and finished with 28 for the short-handed Trail Blazers in a much-needed 102-94 victory over Utah on Friday night. \"I definitely feel like theres times I have to assert myself,\" he said. Lillard grabbed attention last weekend by taking part in a record five All-Star events. Last-seasons Rookie of the Year was a first-time All-Star, earning a spot on the West team by vote of the conferences coaches. The Blazers need Lillard to take over games like he did against the Jazz in the absence of fellow All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge, who sat out with a left groin injury. Robin Lopez had 12 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Blazers, who avoided a season-high fourth straight loss as they struggle to keep pace in the Western Conference. \"When youre going through a tough stretch, its hard to get back on track sometimes,\" Lillard said. \"This win will get us back on track.\" Enes Kanter matched his career-high with 25 points and added 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who lost their second straight after a three-game winning streak. Utah opened the final quarter with a 73-64 lead, but Portland answered with a 7-0 run to close within 73-71 and went ahead on Lillards 3-pointer with 9:18 left. Energized by regaining the lead, Lillards alley-oop dunk off a dish from Nicolas Batum made it 80-75 with 6:07 left. \"Hes always in attack mode,\" Utahs Trey Burke said of Lillard. Utah kept it close down the stretch, with Richard Jeffersons 3-pointer narrowing the gap to 85-83. Batum answered with a 3-pointer for the Blazers. Kanters jumper got Utah within 94-91 with 1:21 to go, but Mo Williams jumper extended it again for the Blazers, who cruised the rest of the way. Portland outscored the Jazz 38-21 in the final period. \"I thought in the fourth quarter we had a nice cushion,\" Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. \"They just came out right from the beginning of the fourth and got a turnover and made a 3-point shot. We made another mistake and they scored on it, and they ran from there.\" Portland was playing its second game without Aldridge, who leads the team with 23.9 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. He is expected to sit out Sunday nights game against Minnesota before he is reevaluated. Dorell Wright started in Aldridges place. The Blazers also were without forward Joel Freeland, who has a right knee sprain, and Meyers Leonard, who sprained his left ankle in practice on Monday. Portlands front court got even thinner when Batum, who has been fighting the flu, retreated to the locker room late in the first half. Will Barton started the second half, but Batum returned late in the third quarter. The Jazz were without forward Derrick Favours, who missed his second straight game because of hip issues. Favours is averaging 12.9 points and nine rebounds a game. Kanter started in his place and led both teams with 15 points at the half. The Blazers led by as many as six points in the first quarter, but the Jazz closed in and went ahead 19-18 on Diante Garretts driving layup. Portland reclaimed a 28-25 lead midway through the second quarter on Bartons fast-break 360-degree dunk. Lillards 3-pointer extended the lead to 43-37. Both teams wrestled for the lead through the third quarter, until the Jazz appeared to make a move, going up 62-57 on Trey Burkes deep 3-pointer. It was Utahs biggest lead of the game to that point. Utah extended the lead to 68-60 on Alec Burks layup. NOTES: Blazers coach Terry Stotts wore a plaid sportcoat and an open-collared shirt in honour of Dr. Jack Ramsays 89th birthday. Ramsay coached the Trail Blazers to the 1977 NBA title, hence the throwback outfit. \"Im not much of a fashionista, but I think he was able to pull it off,\" Lopez said. ...

Despite taking over as the teams fourth defensive co-ordinator in four years, Schwartz stressed he has no intention of making drastic changes to his predecessors aggressive approach that made the Bills one of the NFLs most feared pass-rushing teams last season. \"Were an attack scheme. Its a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback,\" Schwartz said during his introductory news conference on Monday. \"Well be fast. Well be physical. We want to attack. ... Theres going to be a lot of defensive lineman that are real happy to play in a system like that.\" That should make Mario Williams, one of Buffalos three returning Pro Bowl defensive linemen, breathe a little easier. Schwartz is happy, too. A month after being fired as the Detroit Lions head coach, Schwartzs decision to bide his time before making his next move paid off in landing a job he considers to be an ideal fit. \"You want to be very careful about your next opportunity, and I didnt step into this lightly,\" he said. \"Theres a tremendous opportunity with the players that are in place.\" Schwartz replaces Mike Pettine, who left Buffalo after only one season to take over as the Cleveland Browns head coach. Pettines departure last week was unexpected and had the potential of undercutting whatever carry-over the Bills were seeking to build on following a 6-10 finish. Though the Bills struggled against the run, their defence finished 10th in the NFL in yards allowed — Buffalos best ranking since a second-place finish in 2004. And Buffalo finished second in the league with a franchise-record 57 sacks. Once Pettine indicated he was accepting the Browns position, Bills coach Doug Marrone wasted little time targeting Schwartz. At the same time Pettine completing his deal in Cleveland on Thursday, Marrone and members of the Bills front office travelleed to interview Schwartz for the job before reaching a deal a day later.dddddddddddd \"When youre looking to hire defensive co-ordinators, you want to look at people that you dont like going against their defence,\" Marrone said. \"Jims defences have always been very tough, very difficult to run on, very difficult to score on.\" Schwartz has 20 years of coaching experience including an eight-year stint as the Tennessee Titans defensive co-ordinator from 2001-08. The Titans defence three times finished among the NFLs top 10 in fewest yards allowed. Tennessee was particularly stingy in stopping the run, finishing sixth or better in yards rushing allowed, including a first-place ranking in 2003. Schwartz was inconsistent during five seasons in Detroit. He went 29-51, including a 10-6 finish in 2011 in which the Lions snapped a 12-year playoff drought. In Buffalo, Schwartzs immediate priority will be filling out his defensive staff. Marrone said four Bills defensive assistants are expected to join Pettine in Cleveland. The group includes linebackers coach Jim ONeil, who is expected to take over as Browns defensive co-ordinator, and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver. Marrone also expected to lose defensive quality control coach Brian Fleury and newly hired assistant Jeff Hafley. Veteran defensive backs coach Donnie Henderson is staying in Buffalo. Schwartzs defensive approach is rooted in a 4-3 system with some similarities to Pettines philosophy particularly when it comes to generating pressure off the edges. Schwartz intends to spend the next few months adapting his defence to the strengths of his personnel. \"Theres going to be some carry-over. Theres going to be some things that well wind up changing because we think its in our best long-term benefit,\" Schwartz said. \"Were not going to be so complicated that they cant pick things up. Whatever we keep, whatever we decide to change, there will be a reason behind it.\" Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys \' \' \'
