The Portland Trailblazers tonight avoided what could have been a costly defeat at the hands of Sacramento when forward Dorell Wright hit a three-pointer from the left corner with 7.6 points remaining to give his team a 100-99 win at the Moda Center.

Kings guard Ray McCallum missed a deep jumper in the final seconds and Portland center Robin Lopez grabbed the rebound to preserve the win.

Portland shot lights out in the first half but struggled in the second half while allowing the Kings to crawl back into the game.

The fourth quarter proved to be quite dramatic and thrilling as both teams traded leads and made big plays that got the crowd into the game in what was expected to be a snoozer.

Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins was the best player on the court tonight, making 14-of-29 shots for 30 points, and he grabbed 13 rebounds. Portland got 22 points and eight rebounds from forward LaMarcus Aldridge. Damian Lillard had 19 points and 10 assists but had a costly late turnover that almost led to a Blazers defeat.
