PORTLAND, Ore. -- LaMarcus Aldridge piled up 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 92-74 rout of the Toronto Raptors on Monday night at the Rose Garden.
The Trail Blazers (9-12) won despite shooting 0-for-20 from 3-point range, an NBA record for futility from beyond the arc. The previous mark was 0-for-18 by the New York Knicks against the New Jersey Nets in 2010.
J.J. Hickson added 16 points and 11 boards for Portland, picking up his 11th double-double of the season.
DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points to lead the Raptors (4-18), who dropped their 11th straight road game and 11th in 12 games overall.
Aldridge collected 12 points and six rebounds as Portland took a 44-40 lead into halftime. The Blazers expanded the margin to 64-50 late in the third quarter, but Toronto closed the quarter with a 9-0 run to go into the final period down 64-59.
The Raptors were within 75-68 with six minutes remaining when the Blazers scored eight straight points to put the game on ice.
Toronto shot 35.1 percent from the field, including 3-for-21 (14.3 percent) on 3-point attempts.
The Raptors lost two of their top three scorers during the game -- power forward Andrea Bargnani (elbow) and point guard Kyle Lowry (hand). Toronto went into the game without a third starter, small forward Linas Kleiza (knee).
Small forward Nicolas Batum (back) and shooting guard Wesley Matthews (hip) were both missing from Portland's starting lineup. Batum's replacements, rookie Victor Claver and Luke Babbitt, were a combined 0-for-10 shooting at one point late in the first half. Claver and Babbitt finished with four points apiece.
Toronto's Amir Johnson received two technicals and was ejected from the game in the third quarter, then threw his mouthpiece, hitting referee David Jones in the back before he was escorted to the locker room.
NOTES: It was the first game Matthews has missed in his four-year career after 250 straight appearances, which was the second-longest streak among active players to the 323-game run of Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. ... Mickael Pietrus started for Toronto at small forward in place of Kleiza, and he scored nine points. ... Coaches Terry Stotts of Portland and Dwane Casey of Toronto spent nine years coaching together -- six years under George Karl in Seattle, three under Rick Carlisle in Dallas. "Terry's one of my best friends in coaching," Casey said. "When we walk onto the floor, it's like playing your brother. You want to beat him. We run a lot of the same stuff. We use a lot of the same terminology, the same philosophy defensively. We know each other inside and out." Said Stotts, with a laugh: "We're both bad defensive teams right now, so we have that going for us, too. We have a great friendship and relationship." ... The game marked a homecoming for Toronto rookie Terrence Ross, who starred at Portland's Jefferson High. Ross went into the game averaging 5.5 points on .386 shooting, and he finished the night 1-for-5 for two points. "Like most rookies, he's had good days and bad days," Casey said. "He's a sponge. He's learning. He has big-time athletic ability. He can shoot. He's getting better every day, every week. He has to work on his consistency. Defensively, he's much better than I anticipated. He has excellent hands, anticipates the cutter on the weak side and is an above-average rebounder. He was a good pickup for us. His future is great." ... Casey, on Damian Lillard, Portland's rookie point guard out of Weber State: "It's almost like he glides with the ball. He has a high basketball IQ. The thing you love about him more than anything else is he plays with a chip on his shoulder. He's one of those underdogs who went to a small school who is out to prove to everybody he's an NBA player. He's had a fantastic season so far, and he's even a better kid than a player."
