MIAMI - Former University of Washington star Brandon Roy scored 11 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 and the Portland Trail Blazers used a big run in the final minutes to beat the Miami Heat, 102-95, on Sunday night.
Andre Miller scored 17 points and Martell Webster added 15 for Portland, which trailed by six with 51/2 minutes to go.
Dwyane Wade scored 28 points and had 10 assists for the Heat, but was 13 of 31 from the field and didn’t have a rebound. Quentin Richardson added 22 points on a team-record 7-for-7 performance from 3-point range. Miami also got 17 points from Michael Beasley and 12 from Jermaine O’Neal.
But Roy controlled the final minutes, and the Heat didn’t have an answer.
Never miss a local story.
Portland used an 18-2 run in the third quarter to seize the lead, before Miami countered with a 17-2 burst to reclaim control, only to have Portland put the game away with another 18-5 burst down the stretch.
A three-point play from Roy, followed by him hitting a straightaway 3-pointer less than a minute later, tied the game at 89. And after Richardson hit his sixth 3-pointer of the game, Webster answered with one from the left corner for another tie, that one with 2:28 remaining.
It stayed that way until Roy pulled up and hit a jumper with 1:40 remaining, the 11th and final lead change.
And Roy offered the backbreaker with 28.7 seconds to got, a high-arcing 3-pointer over Wade’s outstretched arm for a 99-92 lead.
