Roy (52), Blazers top Suns
Brandon Roy scored a career-high 52 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:01 left, in the Trail Blazers' 124-119 comeback victory over the Phoenix Suns last night in Portland.
Roy was 14 of 27 from the field and 19 of 21 at the line. He topped his career high of 38 set last Friday night in a double-overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Blazers guard Steve Blake matched his season high with 22 points and added 10 assists, and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 10 of his 16 points in the first quarter to help Portland improve to 17-10.
Amar'e Stoudemire led the Suns with 23 points, Matt Barnes had 22, and Steve Nash finished with 15 points and 11 assists. Phoenix was 41 of 72 from the field, and 12 of 18 from 3-point range.
Magic 90, Spurs 78 - Jameer Nelson scored 24 points, and Dwight Howard had 14 points and 13 rebounds to help host Orlando win for the seventh time in eight games.
Howard picked up his fifth foul halfway into the fourth quarter and went to the bench. That wasn't anything new for the Magic, who played the last two games with the All-Star center sidelined by a sore knee.
Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 19 points.
